What does Amber think she will bring to the villa? 

It looks like she'll be bringing a lot of fun energy and forming close bonds with the girls in the villa!

Talking about what she thinks she'll bring to the show, she said: "Hopefully fun! Have some chit-chat with the girls. I can definitely be opinionated so I’m not sure how that’s going to go down. As I work with kids I have patience with kids but adults, they annoy me!"

What gives Amber the ick?

Amber confessed that she doesn't like guys who show off — could this prove to be a problem in the villa?

"I don’t like guys that show off. I don’t like flashy, showy-offy guys - just have a personality and make me laugh," she revealed.

"There was this one guy and he was trying to purposefully show off his car keys and we were literally in the middle of a restaurant!"

Love Island 2022 begins on Monday, June 6 at 9 pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes will be made available to stream the following morning on BritBox
