Who is Amber Gill? Love Island 2019 contestant in hot water when she said she ‘doesn’t like black guys’

AMBER Gill is not one to mince her words and lacked a romantic connection with eliminated Callum Macleod.

But since his departure she has bonded with beefy fireman Michael Griffiths, with the pair locking lips in episode eight. Get all the latest gossip on the beautician below…

Who is Love Islander Amber Gill?

Amber describes herself as someone with a big personality that gets on really well with others.

"People think I’m funny," the beauty therapist from Newcastle explained. "I don’t take myself too seriously and I’m always up for a laugh.

"I’ll be good on challenges and dates. I’m kind and like to include everyone. I like to make friends with everybody."

That said, the other Islanders shouldn't push their luck as it sounds like she's got a bit of a temper on her too.

"I can be hot-headed," she added. "I’m loud and some people don’t appreciate that. I’m quite opinionated."

Fortunately, she doesn't suffer with low self-esteem and rates herself as a ten out of ten when it comes to looks: "You’ve got to love yourself. What’s the point if you don’t?"

Fair point.

What has happened to Amber Gill on Love Island so far?

  • Amber was one of the first girls to go into the villa along with Amy. She didn't like the look of any of the guys but favoured Callum who came in last. However, after they coupled up she complained that he was "boring".
  • Amber was hoping Tommy was going to pick her when he got to choose a girl to couple up with, but he went for Lucie.
  • After Lucie told Tommy she still quite liked Joe, he made a play for Amber – who told viewers he needs to work harder if he wants to win her.
  • Amber refuses to be second best and was enraged when Joe tried to crack on with her just to make Lucie jealous.
  • Having grown tired of her partner Callum, Amber chooses Anton Danyluk as her new man, meaning Callum got dumped from the island.
  • Although she's currently coupled up with Anton, she has taken a fancy to dishy fireman Michael Griffiths.
  • Amber and Michael enjoyed their first kiss in episode 8, but that wasn't before she dodged his initial offer for a smooch, as her breath was "smelly" following a sip of coca cola.

What controversy did Amber Gill land in?

Amber was forced to deny she's racist after deleting a post saying she 'doesn't like black guys.'

The 21-year-old, whose dad is from Trinidad and Tobago, insisted the comment had been taken out of context after the old post, from December 2018, was unearthed.

In the image, which has now been deleted, Amber can be seen sticking up her middle fingers as a black man approached her in a club.

She wrote alongside it: “Look at my face u know I’m about to boot off. [sic]”

She then quoted the man as saying: “I seen you staring at me all night”, to which she replied: “First of all I don’t like black guys X’.”

The original image was shared by a friend, who wrote alongside it: “Amber SICK of her life with another lad talking s***e."

Her rep denied she was racist and they told the Metro: "We deleted the post as it was being taken out of context in regards to what actually happened.

"The guy was pestering Amber all evening, and she said he was old enough to be her Dad, so was referring to “I don’t date black guys” because he reminded her of her own Father.

"The next part of [her] story stated this, but as the whole thing was being taken out of context we simply deleted."

They added: "Obviously she’s not racist – her own father is from Trinidad/Tobago.

"She just didn’t want to date someone that looked the double of her Dad."

How does Love Islander Amber Gill know Adam Collard and Ellie Brown?

Turns out, all three of them come from Newcastle and have crossed paths a fair few times over the years.

Commenting on her claim to fame, Amber said: "I know a few of the former Islanders from Newcastle, like Adam Collard and Ellie Brown.
"Everyone knows everyone in Newcastle!"

What is Love Islander Amber Gill's type on paper?

Amber has admitted her celebrity crush is Tom Hardy.

"He’s just nice and he loves dogs as well and I love dogs," she explained. "He takes his dog on the red carpet and I just love that so much."

However, when asked what kind of guy she was looking for in the villa, Amber said that she didn't really have a type as such.

"I like tall guys who are muscly and athletic, I like people that go to the gym because that’s what I like," she added.

"I want someone who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I am daft.

"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."

Has Amber Gill ever cheated on a boyfriend?

Definitely not — and the Love Islander prides herself on how loyal she is.

Unfortunately though, she has been cheated on during a relationship.

Opening up about her dating history prior to Love Island, she said: "I’ve never cheated. I am not planning on having a wandering eye.

"You’re dating someone and coupling up but if I have to go for someone else then I have to. I’d obviously tell the guy and explain I liked someone else.

"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."

When can I watch Love Island on ITV2?

Series five kicked off on Monday, June 3, 2019 at 9pm with a bumper launch show and the first coupling.

You’ll be able to get your fix of the show every night on ITV2 where the main show will give us the lowdown on all the goings-on in the villa – from couples cracking on to singletons getting mugged off.

Saturday night's show differs from the rest of the week, as it is a round-up of all the best bits from the villa that week – and maybe some unseen footage!

If that’s not enough, you can also watch Caroline Flack's spin-off show Aftersun on Sunday nights at 10pm after the main show has aired where she discusses the latest action with celebrity guest as well as those eliminated from the villa.

Like 2018, the show is likely to last eight weeks meaning the grand final could be around July 29, 2019.
