'Love Island' star Amy Hart lands job as guest panelist on 'Loose Women'

Love Island’s Amy Hart is set to join Loose Women as a guest panellist, after quitting the ITV dating show in heartbreak last week.

Hart left the villa following her dramatic split from ‘half-boyfriend’ Curtis Pritchard, but it hasn’t taken her long to land her first TV job after appearing on the reality show.

The 27-year-old will join the Loose Women panel next Wednesday, having already appeared on the daytime show on Monday.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: "I’m so excited. I’ve been a fan of Loose Women since I was 12.

"It’s my birthday tomorrow so this is the best present ever. I can’t wait to see the ladies next Wednesday."

On Monday’s show, the former air hostess revealed that she didn’t originally see eye-to-eye with Maura Higgins, who Curtis is now coupled up with on Love Island.

"Initially I didn’t warm to Maura because of her treatment to Molly and her treatment of Elma,” she said.

"However because she’s kind, caring and funny and we’ve both travelled a lot, so we bonded over that. You live in the same house as people – we did form a friendship."

"So, then for her to once again move the goal posts to suit her situation to decide we were never friends in the first place because she wanted to get with Curtis, obviously it’s not the most ideal thing.

"But I left on good terms with her because I want all of my friends to be happy."

She also responded to the claims that her tearful exit speech was written for her by the producers.

"A lot of people have said, I've read everywhere, that it was written by someone else. It wasn't - because if you watch the one by the fire pit, I lose it half way through and run out of things to say."
