DETAILS around how footballer Jack Grealish and Love Islander Amber Gill first met have emerged, as the star finds himself at the centre of a love storm.
The £100m Manchester City star, 26, is understood to have been dating Love Island star Amber Gill, 24 and Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack, 31, around the same time as seeing on-off childhood sweetheart Sasha Attwood, 25.
And it has come to light that the pair first met at Leeds Festival where they bonded over their mutual love of Stormzy. The Love Island winner, 24, and England superstar, 26, were both invited to watch the rapper’s headline gig at Leeds in August of this year.
Grealish – who has been on/off with Sasha Attwood for ten years – is said to have invited the star back to his hotel in Leeds that night.

Followers who keep a close eye on the love-island winner might have spotted that Amber has been loved up after dropping a series of clues which have hinted at her romance.
Amber is usually pretty active on Instagram but she didn’t post anything on her grid for over a month.
A couple of days ago she returned and shared a snap of herself looking glowing.
The timing coincides with the news of Jack’s meetings with Emily being revealed.
Fans also spotted that Amber – who often tweets about being single or being off men – has been quiet on the men front.
What has Jack been up to?
Jack is known to be a bit of a lad.
In August he was caught liking a string of Instagram snaps posted by model Lillie Haynes — who starred on this year’s Love Island — before deleting them.
Just days later he was spotted on celebrity dating app Raya.
In the same month Jack was seen “flirting like mad” with another Love Island beauty — 2018 contestant Ellie Brown.
Last Saturday The Sun revealed Jack had secret dates with Emily Atack.
And on Monday childhood sweetheart Sasha Attwood gave him a lovelife ultimatum.

“She was clearly quite excited about it, she told her friends, but after the news about Jack and Emily came out recently the whole thing feels a lot less glamorous.”

She said: “Things have obviously blown up over the Euros, but I never thought in a million years it would ever be this bad.
“It just kind of blows my mind how nasty people can be for no reason whatsoever.
“I’ve always been quite a strong person, I’ve always been very good at blocking out people’s opinions. But it’s on a whole other level.”

While boyfriend Jack has been working hard on the pitch, Sasha seems to have been busy too, as she posted an Instagram story showing a fashion shoot set up and tagged retail giant House of Fraser in the video.

The pair met as teenagers at school in Solihull and have been on and off throughout their 20s.
Emily, meanwhile, is believed to be single.
She split from her last boyfriend Jude Taylor in August and later said: “I am single. Being single isn’t always a happy thing, but I definitely think it isn’t a bad thing.
“And it shouldn’t be seen as something that’s shameful if you’re in your 30s and single.
“As I say, being single isn’t always great, but sometimes it’s really great. So yeah, I’m fine.”
Her famous exes also include One Direction’s Harry Styles, McFly’s Dougie Poynter and comedian Seann Walsh.
Speaking of Emily and Jack’s relationship, his pal said.
“Jack’s been calling her almost every day and has been pretty open about it.
“They’ve become really good mates, are FaceTiming loads and he’s like a little puppy dog around her.
“It’s very sweet. They have a real laugh together.”
A friend later added: “They’re getting very close but obviously haven’t crossed a line.
“Jack is very focussed on his career and Emily is a fun, popular girl who is incredibly busy work-wise at the moment.”

Describing their friendship as the “talk of the dressing room,” Jack’s pal explained that the pair have a mutual admiration for each other.
The friend told the Sun: “Emily watched Jack in the Euros and thought he was fit. “And for his part, Jack has been a fan of hers since she starred as Charlotte ‘Big Jugs’ Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners.
“They started DMing on Instagram before swapping numbers, and taking it on to WhatsApp and FaceTime.
