Love Island 2019 is finally heading for its fifth series next week with an all-new line-up of singletons hoping to find love. Caroline Flack will host the ITV show yet again as the new faces fall in love and try to win the ultimate cash prize. Among the hopefuls is Amber Gill but what do we know about her so far?
Who is Love Island 2019 cast member Amber Gill?
Newcastle-born Amber Gill is one of the newly announced contestants heading into the villa next week.
A beauty therapist, 21-year-old Amber will be joining five other girls when the show premieres on Monday, June 3.
She’s also had success as a model, having shot for clothing brand Fash1.UK.
Describing herself as having “a big personality,” Amber has said that she has a great sense of humour.
But it’s possible that this personality might clash with some of the other islanders who are on the quieter side.
Speaking about her worst qualities, she said: “I can be hot-headed, I’m loud and some people don’t appreciate that. I’m quite opinionated.”
Amber already has a strong Instagram following with 33k followers on her account @amberrosegill but she’s yet to post on her Twitter account on @amberrosegill.
So what is Amber looking for when she heads into the villa?
She said: “I like tall guys who are muscly and athletic, I like people that go to the gym.
“I want someone who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I am daft.”
Her celebrity crush is Tom Hardy but she says she doesn’t have a type and is just looking for someone who catches her eye.
She also describes herself as loyal, in the infamous words of last year’s Georgia Steel, and says that she has never cheated on anyone.
However, she’s been on the other side of the story in some of her previous relationships.
“I’ve been cheated on several times,” she said. “I’m not as naive as I was then, I’ve just learnt to be careful from it. Not everyone has your best interests at heart.”
Hailing from Newcastle, Amber also has a few links to past Islanders as well as the Geordie Shore cast.
Her Instagram shows her posing with Ellie Brown from last year’s villa as well as Adam Collard while there are also snaps of her with Geordie Shore star Kylie Christie.
But according to Amber, this isn’t too much of a coincidence as “everyone knows everyone in Newcastle”.
Amber will be joining a line-up in the house including surfer girl Lucie Donlan and rugby player Sherif Lanre.
There will also be some links to famous faces in the house, with Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard’s brother Curtis as well as boxer Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy also heading into the villa.
Love Island 2019 starts on ITV2 on Monday, June 3 at 9pm
