Who is Amy Day? Meet Love Island 2021 contestant and Casa Amor bombshell
Everything you need to know about Amy Day – the Surrey-based performer who's just coupled up with Hugo.
The last week has seen some of the most dramatic episodes of Love Island so far – all thanks to Casa Amor, which introduced us to the Casa Amor 2021 cast including 12 new contestants, who were brought in to turn the heads of the villa's committed couples.
While last night's exciting episode saw various betrayals (ahem- Liam and Millie) and emotional reunions with the likes of Liberty and Jake, it also gave us brand new couple - Hugo Hammond and Amy Day - who walked back into the main villa hand-in-hand as an official pairing.
Amy joined the main villa on Day 29 and is now a staple in the Love Island villa – but who is the Surrey-based performer? And how will her relationship with Hugo pan out?
Read on for everything you need to know about Amy Day – one of the latest Love Island 2021 contestants.
Amy Day – Key Facts
Coupled up with: Hugo Hammond
Who is Amy Day?
Amy is a Surrey-based performer who's worked on cruise ships and hopes to perform on the West End one day.
She describes herself as a "massive girls' girl" but isn't afraid to step on some toes in the villa. "Obviously I'm here to find love," she says. "So I would let them know I am interested and then gauge what they're feeling as well. I will step on toes if needs be, but that's obviously not my aim."
Hoping to bring some fun to the villa, Amy says she doesn't take anything seriously. "I don't get knocked back easily, I'm always like this is what was meant to happen. I'm positive and also a really good friend."
Why did Amy sign up for Love Island?
When asked why she decided to enter the Casa Amor villa, Amy said that she needed a bit of help in the dating department.
"I'm clearly not very good at dating myself. I'm looking forward to the experience and the potential of finding someone I might not have met."
What is Amy looking for in a partner?
While she's now coupled up with Hugo, she didn't have her eye on anyone before entering the Casa Amor villa, saying: "I'm just going to see what the vibe is."
As for what Amy will bring to the villa, she said she's hoping to bring the fun. "I'm always being stupid. Like Faye playing the egg game – I'd get people up. I'd say let's play this game, I'd be in the pool."
