Former Love Island contestant Amy Hart has revealed that she’s planning on freezing her eggs next year so that she can have a child on her own in the future if she doesn’t “meet the right man.”

In an interview with The Sun, the 26-year-old - who left the villa during the ITV2 show’s most recent series after being dumped by half-boyfriend Curtis Pritchard - said she “would love to get married and have kids.”

“Being a mum is something that is really, really important to me,” she explained, before saying that she’ll start setting plans in motion in early 2020. “I have been thinking about freezing my eggs for a while and I’ve decided to do it next year. It is one of my New Year Resolutions.

“I have a rough age in mind. If I’m still not with anyone when I’m 35 I would like to do it on my own. Although, I may end up doing it earlier than that. That age isn’t set in stone.”

Hart went on to say that isn’t sure “exactly how yet” but she’d likely either go down the IVF route and use an anonymous sperm donor or have a baby “with one of [her] gay besties.”

While she’s already got a back-up in mind in terms of starting a family as an independent woman, Hart is still keen to find love and has signed up for the new series of Celebs Go Dating in the hope of doing just that.

“I've joined the Dating Agency because I'm the epitome of a dating disaster,” the former air hostess wrote on Instagram back in November. “I'm looking for find my first proper boyfriend and hopefully the agency will be able to help me do it.”

Other famous faces joining her on the eighth series include TOWIE’s Amy Childs and James Lock, Made in Chelsea’s Olivia Bentley, Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer and EastEnders star Dean Gaffney.
