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

Don't panic, but Love Island is about to come to an end. Meaning we have no earthly idea what we're going to do with our evenings after next Monday (29th July).

One of the most defining contestants of the series is Amber Gill, who experienced a tumultuous relationship with Michal Griffiths throughout much of her time on the island, before finally settling down with Greg O'Shea.

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?

How tall is Amber?

Amber is 5ft 4in.

Who is Amber coupled up with?

Amber was originally picked by 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.

She then coupled up with firefighter Michael Griffiths - with many fans even hailing them the villa's power couple in their early days. They were also tipped to win the show.

However, when Michael went to Casa Amor his head was turned by Joanna Chimonides, and he returned to the villa with her.

The fallout from that was huge, and Michael went from being one of the most popular to the most hated Love Island contestants.

After Joanna was dumped from the island, Michael decided that he did fancy Amber after all, but she had already caught the eye of new boy Greg O'Shea - and she chose him over Michael in a dramatic recoupling.

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's Love Island journey been like?

Amber has arguably had one of the most tumultuous Love Island journeys of all the contestants this year.

She and Michael coupled up fairly early on, and were favourites to win the show. However, after Michael chose Joanna at Casa Amor, Amber was left heartbroken.

She coupled up with Ovie Soko as friends, before being told that a new boy Greg O'Shea wanted to take her on a date.

Michael then told Amber he still had feelings for her after Joanna was dumped, and it was unclear whether Amber would choose Greg or Michael in the next recoupling.

In the end, she chose Greg - and the pair have been loved up ever since.
