Amber already has some famous connections with the villa including some ex-Love Island stars.

Don't panic, but Love Island is back on our telly screens, which means a bunch of singletons have kicked off the summer of their lives in the Spanish sun.

And Amber Gill is already causing a splash in the Love Island 2019 villa with her no nonsense attitude and blossoming romance with Michael Griffiths. But who is she, what is her job and what is her claim to fame? Find out everything...

Who is Amber and how old is she?

Amber is a 21-year-old beauty therapist from Newcastle who is an expert in all things lashes and facials. She’s also a model for online clothing brand Fash1.UK.

Describing herself as having a ‘big personality’, Amber rates herself a 10/10 in terms of looks because ‘you’ve got to back yourself’. She also absolutely loves Tom Hardy. Well, who doesn’t?

The Geordie lass is after a tall man who’s "muscly and athletic", but he also has to make her laugh.

“I want someone who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I am daft,” she said.

"Looking at my past relationships, I don’t really have a type, it’s quite broad. If someone catches my eye then I’ll go for them.”

How tall is Amber?

Amber is 5ft 4in.

Who is Amber coupled up with?

Amber was originally picked by recently axed Sherif Lanre, but then stepped forward for dumped aircraft engineer Callum Macleod who she was coupled up with for less than a week, before choosing Scottish charmer Anton Danyluk.

But after finally finding her Prince Charming, Amber is now coupled up with Liverpudlian firefighter Michael Griffiths - with many fans even hailing them the villa's power couple.

They're not only a hit on Twitter among fans but they're also the bookies' favourites. Oddsmonkey have put their odds to win as 7/4, beating Curtis and Amy's 5/2. Watch this space...

What's Amber's Instagram handle?

You can find Amber on Instagram at @amberrosegill. But despite most of the Love Island stars already having a solid social media following, she started with a modest 6000 followers.

Obviously, now the model has racked up more than 728k followers and will no doubt keep gaining more attention on social media as the show goes on.

She’s also no stranger to a glamorous selfie and a pre-night out photo shoot with her pals.

What has Amber said about Love Island?

It looks like Amber is keen to make friends as well as find ‘The One’ and she’s a big believer in ‘girl code’.

When asked how far she’s prepared to go for a man in the villa, she said: “I would ask if it was alright with a girl first and then go for it with a guy. I wouldn’t do anything and tread on their toes, that’s not really my game. That’s not the type of thing I would do.”

The beautician also revealed she’s never cheated, adding: “I’ve been cheated on several times. 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.”

And Amber isn’t unfamiliar with the reality TV circuit as she actually knows a few of the former Islanders from Newcastle like Adam Collard and Ellie Brown. Let’s hope they’ve given her some good advice.
