The first wave of Love Island contestants coupled up and started getting to know each other. But with heads already turned, how long will the couples last?

Who is Amber Beckford?

Amber Beckford is a 24-year-old nanny from London.

She’s headed to the villa because “it just feels like the right time.” Amber says: “This year it definitely feels like it’s two feet in. I feel like now I’m most definitely ready, and wanting to look for a boyfriend.”

Amber’s hoping to bring some fun to the villa, and thinks she has “a little spark that attracts quite a lot of people’s attention!”

Now’s the time for her to try to find love on Love Island, as she says: “After a serious relationship, I think I went through a little stage of just dating around and I think now I’m looking for a bit more of something serious.”

Amber’s family and friends would describe her as “fun, outspoken, crazy,” and a “wild child.”

She prefers meeting people in person, and says: “I’m definitely a connection and spark kind of girl–I like to check the vibes first!

“In bars or I’m out with friends and someone asks for your number–I definitely prefer that first encounter because I’m so awful on my phone. Just take me out, let’s go out and see and go from there!”

The 24-year-old will be willing to tread on toes in the villa, as she says, “With regards to Love Island, it is a show to find love.

“Girl code is definitely important to me, but I think it’s that balance isn’t it–I’ve got to put myself first!”
