Amy recently departed the villa after being dumped by Curtis Pritchard.
Amy Hart has opened up about the days before she left Love Island, revealing that she lost 6lbs in a matter of days following her split from Curtis Pritchard.
The former air hostess, 26, has claimed that producers stood over her to make sure she ate - as she completely lost her appetite because of the heartbreak.
She also claimed that she doesn't believe the romance between Curtis, 23, and Maura Higgins, 28, will last.
Speaking to The Sun, Amy said: "I feel a million times better now I've left, but I defy anyone not to fall apart and be completely heartbroken.
"When I wouldn't eat, they would stand over me and make me eat a bowl of food or I couldn't do the challenges."
Heart.co.uk has contacted a rep for Love Island for comment.
And speaking about Maura and Curtis, she added: "I think she thought he was the best one left out of the single ones. She wants to be on the show for as long as possible and go the distance. They aren't suited."
Love Island bosses released an updated aftercare policy before the series started, following the deaths of former contestants Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.
Creative Director ITV Studios Entertainment Richard Cowles said at the time: "We're very excited that Love Island is back for another series. It is the nation's favourite dating show and we have a fabulous new cast of young singles all looking for love and ready for a summer of romance in the iconic Love Island villa.
"The format of the new series will be familiar to Love Island viewers and we can't wait to see how the new Islanders take to life in the villa and how relationships blossom. We hope that viewers will be hooked as they watch these young singles fall in love - hopefully it will be a summer to remember for both the Islanders and our viewers.
"Due to the success of the show our Islanders can find themselves in the public eye following their appearance. We really want to make sure they have given real consideration to this and what appearing on TV entails. Discussing all of this with us forms a big part of the casting process and, ultimately, their decision to take part.
"Also, as we are outlining today our welfare processes follow three key stages: pre-filming, filming and aftercare and we are increasing our post filming support to help Islanders following their time in villa."
