Love Island producers have denied recent rumours that contestant Amy Hart has left the villa in order to receive professional support after being dumped by Curtis Pritchard.

On Friday 5 July, The Mirror reported that the ITV2 show’s support team had “whisked” 26-year-old air stewardess away to process her “humilation,” having sat down with ballroom dancer Pritchard to talk through why he almost recoupled with fellow contestant Jourdan Diane.

But after quizzing the ballroom dancer on what he thought ‘exclusive’ means and whether he’s actually attracted to her romantically, the grovelling 23-year-old told her that he couldn’t promise his head wouldn’t turn again and then unexpectedly ended their four-week relationship.

“How can you go from saying you want a future with me, you want to be with me to now saying you don’t want to be with me?” a tearful Hart asked the ballroom dancer. “You’re a liar. You’re a compulsive liar.”

Addressing the breakup, a Love Island spokesperson previously said: "We take the emotional well-being of all the Islanders extremely seriously.

"We have dedicated welfare producers and psychological support on hand at all times who monitor and regularly speak to all of the Islanders in private and off camera, especially if someone appears to be upset.”

According to The Mirror, the show insists that despite bosses stepping in to “whisk” her out of the villa, Hart is still very much a part of the competition. She is just taking a short break to “talk to someone” about the “humilation” of the ordeal.

"All the Islanders are therefore fully supported by the professionals on site and by their friends in the villa,” the insider added. “This means Islanders are always able to reach out if they feel the need.

“We will of course continue to monitor all of our Islanders in line with our robust protocols.

"Love Island holds a mirror up to relationships and all the different dynamics that go with them,” they concluded.

Love Island’s aftercare has come under scrutiny in recent months following the deaths of former Islanders Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.

In response, the dating show updated its duty of care statement to include pre-filming psychological and medical assessments and a welfare team on-hand during production.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
