The 2022 season of Love Island, its eighth overall, is underway and the new line-up of contestants are now in the villa - and two have already had to say goodbye to Love Island life.


The twists that we have come to know and love from the show have been coming thick and fast, and the first twist of the season was that the public would be choosing who couples up with who. That should have been a warning sign to the contestants to expect the unexpected.

Two new boys are now in the villa and that looks like it could be an issue for certain couples - let's just say the next time they all gather around the firepit to recouple could be quite explosive.

While we wait for the next instalment why not get to know this year's islanders from footballer Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma Owen and student Liam Llewellyn to microbiologist Dami Hope and childminder Amber Beckford.

But who is Amber and what is she looking for in a partner? Here’s everything you need to know about Amber.
