Love Island's Amy Hart has claimed that fellow ex-contestant Arabella Chi made out that she was "absolutely hated" by the public – despite newcomers reportedly being advised by producers not to reveal anything going on in the outside to the villa.

The 26-year-old cabin crew manager emotionally quit the show last week after a messy break up with ballroom dancer Curtis Pritchard. She revealed that she underwent therapy numerous times while on the show, as she struggled with heartbreak and the intense pressure of not being able to leave the villa.

Amy also disclosed that when Arabella entered as one of the show's many bombshells, she told Amy that she wasn't popular with the public.

"They [newcomers] gave their perspective, they weren't supposed to and they got told off for it," Amy told OK! magazine.

"Arabella led me to believe that I was absolutely hated, and I may have been at the time, so I feel so lucky to have come out to so much support."

She added candidly to the publication: "I had therapy 12 times in the villa – but I've come out stronger. I deserve a man who loves me for who I am."

After an audience member asked which Islander he would couple up with, AJ replied: "Well I think Amy looks absolutely gorgeous tonight... Lovely new hair."

Amy replied that they could "restart Team Pritchart", before adding that "Sunday lunch would be weird".

AJ repeated his comments about Amy's new 'do on his Instagram, writing: "Honestly so Lovely to meet @amyhartxo, absolutely beautiful person inside & out... Plus loving the new hair."

He recently admitted that the two of them had spoken about her time in the villa with Curtis.

Love Island airs at 9pm on ITV2, and you can catch up on the show via ITV Hub.
