Meet Love Island 2019 winner and beauty therapist Amber Gill.
The Love Island 2019 line-up saw Amber Gill just one of the sexy singletons entering the villa for season five at the very start, but eight weeks later she won the show with partner of two weeks Greg O'Shea – whom she split from five weeks after the show ended.
Amber and her beau scooped the £50k prize after weeks of heartache for the brunette bombshell with former partner Michael Griffiths, but she'll now no doubt be one of the most successful contestants outside of the villa.
Who is Amber and why did she decide to go on the ITV2 show? Let's find out...
Amber Gill, 22, is a beauty therapist and Love Island season five winner from Newcastle.
The reality TV star already had connections to Love Island alumni, Adam Collard and Ellie Brown before entering the villa.
Before landing in the limelight, Amber described herself as: "My three best would be that I’m funny, that I am sassy and I’m kind and like to include everyone. I like to make friends with everybody. My three worst are that I can be hot-headed, I’m loud and some people don’t appreciate that. I’m quite opinionated."

Upon entering the villa she had 2k followers, and just two and a half weeks into the series that number soared to 590k and after the final it reached 2.7million – it's now hit over 2.9 million.
Amber considered herself a good fit for Love Island because she said: "I’ve got a big personality and I get on with people really well. People think I’m funny. I don’t take myself too seriously and I’m always up for a laugh. I’ll be good on challenges and dates."
After winning the show Amber couldn't believe they'd been voted the nation's favourite couple, telling the programme's host Caroline Flack: "It would be fair to say I've had quite a journey in the villa this summer. There have been so many highs, but I've still had some quite low lows."
During her declaration of feelings to partner Greg at the final, Amber told the Irish hunk: "You picked me up when I was my most vulnerable, and helped me rediscover my smile."
However, the couple called it quits after the distance between them and their hectic schedules became too much.
