Love Island

Love Island’s Greg O’ Shea is a single man after (reportedly) dumping Amber Gill via text earlier this month. The Irishman quickly went from being heralded as the nation’s hero to being called a snake, but the backlash hasn’t stopped him.

The Love Island star has landed a host of gigs, including a presenting role on RTÉ 2FM.

He recently joined RTÉ at the National Ploughing Championships to chat about life after Love Island and even shared his dating advice with the public.

The reality star stressed that he hates online dating and stressed that he’d never use them so you can bid farewell to your hopes of seeing him pop up on Tinder.

He told RTÉ, “One big one, for me anyway, is to stay away from the online apps – Tinder, Bumble and all that – and just meet someone organically.”

Greg stressed that meeting someone in person is far better than searching for love online. He encouraged the public to go back to traditional dating methods, like walking up to someone at a bar or asking someone for their number in a coffee shop.

“It’s very rare to walk up to a woman nowadays and actually strike up a conversation and ask her on a date so that’s what I’d say to everyone,” he told the audience.

We can’t imagine many people will turn to Greg for dating advice, especially after how he played a game and mistreated queen Amber.

Love Island star Maura Higgins isn't one to withhold vital information, including about shenanigans from the Spanish villa that she may have caused.

The reality star has fast become a fan favourite due to her frank and honest nature, though she has now admitted to skirting around the rules to get some extra wine. Mad respect.

"I should never tell, but I'm gonna…" she revealed during an Instagram Q&A after an appearance on The Late Late Show last Friday night.

"Some nights you get one glass of wine, some nights you get two, you either get a choice of beer or wine, I always choose wine," Maura explained.

"One night I went into the larder where the drinks get prepared and there's like a water dispenser there. I went in before everyone else and I downed everyone's wine and I filled it up with water.

"And I got in really big trouble. The whole island got punished the following night because I got really drunk. I shouldn't have probably said that. I'll get in big trouble now!"

We can relate to the struggle of craving some vino, especially if we were on a stressful reality show fighting off other gals to find love.

The Longford native has also divulged on other behind-the-scenes secrets from the reality show, admitting that some scenes were reshot.

"Yeah, we did re-shoot," Maura said. "Just say, for instance, if a text came through and you weren't loud enough or if you stumbled on your words, you'd have to re-take obviously."

Didn't Amber Gill, AKA Queen of the Love Island villa, inform us that she was "booked and busy"? Our girl doesn't lie.

The 22-year-old Geordie beautician announced this morning on her Instagram account that she's landed a huge brand ambassador gig with retailer Miss Pap;

She captioned the post; "Oh hey it’s just me, your NEW MISSPAP babe. I honestly cannot believe it!! Soooo excited to be a part of the fresh Miss Pap brand."

"However I wanted to take my time in the design process so my collection is perfect, embodies my style and more importantly is inclusive for girls of all shapes and sizes. I cannot wait for you to see what I’ve been working on you know it’s going to be GOOOD."

Of course, she had to drop the long-awaited discount code for her 'huntys': AMBER50. Yas girl, slay away.

Kevin Clifton isn't holding his opinions back about his Strictly Come Dancing co-star AJ Pritchard, suggesting that the fellow professional dancer tried to steal Stacey Dooley for himself last year.

Appearing on a one-off Strictly special, which will air on Saturday night, Kevin speaks about the process of the dancers and contestants testing their compatibility with a 'speed dance'.

The dance features the celebrities and professionals dance briefly with each other, before they're placed in their various partnerships.

According to The Sun, Kevin claims he was ‘going for it’ with Stacey while they were dancing in a salsa circle, but AJ later swooped in and tried to pull Stacey away for a one-on-one talk.

"Last year with Stacey in the salsa circle, I was going for it… overdoing it," Kevin says.

"At one point, we were on a coffee break and AJ interrupted us in the middle of us talking and took her away," he added. "He wanted to get to know her and see what she was about."

"I was like, “It’s not Love Island mate!”‘ Kevin managed to fend off AJ's advances and he was picked to be Stacey's partner for last years show.

The duo went on to win the Glitterball trophy, before confirming their romance three months later following Stacey's split from ex-boyfriend Sam Tucknott.

The pair insist on remaining tight-lipped about their private life.

In an interview with The Guardian, Stacey said:

"Kev and I agreed not to go into too much detail about our private lives because you can’t really indulge that and then ask for privacy. What I am happy to say is Kev’s amazing. I’m happy, life happens. I’ve got an amazing career and I’m very lucky."

Kevin is partnered with Anneka Rice on this year's Strictly, but was recently forced to deny claims that he’s "fuming" with the pairing and insisted he’s having a "wicked time" with Anneka in rehearsals.

Love Island couples are having a bumpy ride over the last few days, between Anton Danyluk and Belle Hassan's break-up and Greg O'Shea ruthlessly dumping Amber Gill by text (rude). 

Their relationships only lasted five weeks, despite Amber and Greg beating Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury to win the ITV2 show.

Now there's a possible cheating scandal on our hands *clutches rosary beads*. India Reynolds has been forced to deny cheating on national treasure, Ovie Soko.

28-year-old India has been accused of cheating on her 28-year-old basketballer beau with footballer Kieran Gibbs after allegations of them kissing at his birthday party emerged.

According to MailOnline, model India “grabbed and kissed” Kieran at the party, with a source claiming that she was overheard saying: “If Kieran made it official with me, I would dump Ovie.”

India has denied the claims with a representative for the third place contestant adding that the allegations are “absolutely not true. They've been friends for years”.

“She attended his birthday party with her family. She's in love with Ovie and would never hurt him. She's shocked and hurt at the claims,” a source told the publication

India and Ovie came third in this year’s Love Island, and seem to be going strong. The pair have posted their fair share of loved up snaps since the show's final six weeks ago.

Ovie sang India's praises during a recent appearance on This Morning; “I can’t say love. I think love is a thing that takes time to develop."

“But you know, we’re in a good place and we’re just going to put one foot in front of the other," he added.

"We’ve spent quite a lot of time together since leaving the show. She’s back in Reading at the moment handling some stuff, but we’ve been enjoying it, taking it in our stride.”

Time will tell whether Ovie will address the cheating rumours, but he's a chill man. We reckon he'll ignore the hype and focus on treating his lady like the gent he is.

Tyson Fury has suggested that his new show might not feature his little brother and Love Island runner-up Tommy Fury.

The Gypsy King will appear in new series Meet the Fury's, set to be a fly-on-the-wall look at the heavyweight boxer's daily life.

"It’s an insight on Tyson Fury as a husband, as a father, as a son, as a boxer, and as an everyday person, a real behind-the-scenes show of my life," he continued.

Tommy came in second on the ITV2 reality show with girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague, who has made the most money since leaving the show.

The pair have been enjoying their new-found fame and lucrative brand ambassador deals, recently jetting off to the US to attend PrettyLittleThing's fashion week show in New York.

Tommy recently went back to the gym where himself and Tyson train as boxers after his Love Island success, despite promoter Frank Warren confirming that Tommy will take a year out of boxing.

"He’s talking about taking a year out," Tommy's promoter Frank Warren told Metro.co.uk . "I’m fine with that. When he comes back, I’m really looking forward to that. He is going to be huge.

"The interest in him will be huge when he gets back in the ring, especially if he can keep up his profile. He’s only 20 years old. He’s been boxing his whole life, a year out won’t hurt him."

Tyson is preparing for his next fight on Saturday against Swede Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, which Tommy may be supporting him at.

While Love Island's Amber Gill may not seem to have any luck on the reality show when it comes to finding a proper gentleman (bye, Greg), it seems as though she's already moving on.

The Geordie beautician may have been left shocked by Greg O'Shea's brutal text where he called time on their romance just five weeks after winning the ITV2 show, she seems to be getting back on the horse.

The stunning winner appeared at last night's TV Choice Awards and by the end of the night was spotted looking cosy with I'm A Celebrity star Malique Thompson-Dwyer at the after-party.

The beautician seemed to be getting along well with Malique, cuddling on the sofa while she sported a one-shouldered multi-coloured metallic dress with a thigh-high slash. 

An eyewitness told Mirror Online: "Amber and Malique were clearly flirting with each other – there was loads of eye contact between them.

"They looked like a great match and even got out their phones as if they were swapping numbers. At one point they seemed to be close to kissing, before Jamie Lomas interrupted and started talking to his co-star. Amber looked annoyed when another girl came over and took Malique's attention off her."

The former beauty therapist had appeared on Loose Women to discuss the breakdown of her romance with Irish hunk Greg that same day, so it must have been a rough time for her.

"So from my point of view I still wanted to make it work. There was a call a few days prior just chatting, not specifically to do with that.

"I think there was a bit of miscommunication but I think if you don't want to be with someone, you don't want to be with someone," she added.

"Basically all I wanted was a bit of effort from him to come to London or Newcastle to see me. I said I'm going to have to give up if you don't put the effort in. He said 'okay bye'. I was expecting it to be a bit different."

Amber made sure to compliment Greg (he doesn't deserve it..): "He's a lovely guy but I'm not sure what’s going to happen in the future really. It's a bit of an odd situation," the 22-year-old said.

"The Islanders in from the beginning were naive to people going in later on and what people's perceptions were and what were being said. I didn't really think of that at the time."

Maura Higgins has spoken out for the first time about her fellow Islander Amber Gill's split from Greg O'Shea, insisting that the winner is a "strong, independent woman."

The Love Island star believes that the Geordie beautician, who won the show with the Irish rugby player, will thrive despite being dumped ruthlessly via text.

Greg broke up with the Newcastle beauty only five weeks after they split the £50,000 prize and beat out Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague.

"You know what, Amber is such a strong girl. I don't think Amber needs much advice, she's very strong. She is a strong, independent woman and she will be absolutely fine."

Gill appeared on Loose Women yesterday to confirm that the relationship ended over text after she had asked Greg to make more of an effort with the romance by flying to London or Newcastle.

She appeared at the TV Choice Awards alone, without O'Shea in attendance. Maura also spoke about joining the ITV team, saying she felt "part of the furniture".

The emphasised that the villa friendships still exist; "We try to see each other as much as possible but it's difficult. Once you've been through that experience you want to be there to support one another."

Maura has had huge success since leaving the villa; "With the opportunities, it's insane. I feel very, very lucky, honestly."

Amber Gill has confirmed that Irish rugby player Greg O'Shea dumped her by text, and didn't make an effort in their relationship.

Limerick native Greg claimed that they broke up via phone call on The Late Late Show on Friday night, but 22-year-old Geordie beautician Amber has set the record straight.

The pair won Love Island together only five weeks ago after the Irishman coupled up with her, having only been in the villa for 12 days. They split the prize money between them, but Amber should have stolen it…

Greg had claimed that he still has feelings for Amber and has not ruled out a reunion in the future, but Amber admitted that she never expected Islanders going in late to have secret motivations. 

"He’s a lovely guy but I’m not sure what’s going to happen in the future really. It’s a bit of an odd situation.

As her second time as a Loose Women panelist, Amber spoke very honestly about the split. 

"Obviously I’m really disappointed. I wasn't expecting it at all. I was due to fly to Dublin and spend the weekend with him and go on a TV show together.  

"On that day I had to cancel as it wasn’t working out. I think the careers and the distance was always a factor. I don’t know what changed. I wanted to make it work but it is what it is." 

Our queen isn't letting it get her down, however; "I am disappointed it's over. I’m booked and busy and I'll be fine. Onwards and upwards from here."

Greg appeared on The Late Late Show solo with Maura Higgins after Amber cancelled due to their split. He claimed that they'd tried to make it work but the distance and busy schedules were too much.

"Me and Amber have been chatting the last few days and the whole thing about breaking up over text isn't true.  But we need to be realistic about the situation, and the fact she's in the UK," he added.

"We're both so busy and we need to take these opportunities and protecting our careers.  She has every brand wanting to work with her, and I'm trying to make the team for the Olympics"

Amy Hart has shared her successful Love Island audition tape with her followers online, and it's…something.

The ex-air hostess surprised her fans by showing the reel which secured her spot on the ITV2 dating show on YouTube last night, which led to her coupling up with Curtis Pritchard before quitting the show.

The video shows Amy refer to herself as "the lovechild of Elton John and Gemma Collins", also describing herself as a third wheel and "the world's worst drunk texter" who is "too extra for my own good".

"I know I've got the hair, the teeth, the nails, the boobs but I'm not your run-of-the-mill Barbie girl," she added. "There's only one Ames."

The 26-year-old also mentions that all of her friends have "found their Mr Right and have their fairytale endings, and I think it's my time". She also describes her five years of pageant life.

Unfortunately, the show didn't lead to a fairytale ending for Amy, but she walked out with her head held high and earned thousands of fans for the value she had for her mental health.

An ex-Love Island star was caught in possession of the drug ketamine and is now facing a potential jail sentence when she visits court next month.

Bethany Rodgers was a contestant on the ITV2 show back in 2015, and pleaded guilty to possessing 134mg of the Class B drug after she was caught with it last year.

A maximum sentence of five years in prison is carried by the offence, but Rodgers may escape the full sentence if she admitted possession.

Image: Instagram

Appearing at Bradford magistrates court, 23-year-old Bethany admitted possession but didn't enter a plea for another charge of allegedly using thousands of pounds of criminal cash to buy a car.

The Sun reports that the former reality star possibly used the money to purchase an Audi A3 and is alleged to have "acquired, used or had possession of criminal property, namely £16,500" to buy the vehicle.

Rodgers is due to appear at Bradford crown court next month and is currently on bail.

Image: Instagram

Bethany appeared for just one week on Love Island, having entered the villa alongside Max Morley, and quickly became involved in drama among the girls.

She failed to couple up with anyone and was dumped from the Island just days after her explosive arrival on the show, and hasn't been sighted much since.

It seems things haven't gone well for Rodgers…
