Love Island’s Amy reveals she stopped eating after Curtis heartbreak

Serious tears were shed on Tuesday night’s episode when the air hostess announced that she had decided to leave the Love Island villa. 

But it was the right move for former Islander Amy Hart, as she revealed that her “sanity” was at risk on the show. 

The 26-year-old told The Sun that she was so upset over her breakup with fellow housemate Curtis Pritchard, that she stopped eating. 

She told the publication: “I felt so numb. I didn’t feel hungry.

“When I wouldn’t eat, they would stand over me and make me eat a bowl of food or I couldn’t do the challenges.”

Pegged as a favourite couple to win from day one, Curtis and Amy’s relationship seemed to be on solid ground until last week. 

While Amy was away in Casa Amor, the professional dancer had his head turned by model and actress Jourdan Riane. 

Once the former BA air stewardess returned, he confessed that he didn’t think their relationship was working.

Just days later, fellow Islander Maura Higgins revealed that she had hidden feelings for Curtis, and the two started flirting right under her nose. 

Speaking about the heartbreak, she said: “I was grieving the loss of my first love, living in a house with him and watching one of my alleged friends get with him.” 

The former beauty pageant contestant got chatting with ITV producers, who agreed that it would be best if she packed her bags and left the villa. 

She added: “I feel a million times better now I’ve left, but I defy anyone not to fall apart and be completely heartbroken. I was very confused. I couldn’t eat, I lost six pounds.”

Reflecting over her time on the show, the Worthing-born babe spoke highly of the attention she received from the Love Island bosses. 

ITV ramped up their system of care this year, following the tragic deaths of former contestants Sophie Gradon, 32, and Mike Thalassitis, 26. 

Amy confessed: “I used to be a bit scared of therapy and since going in the villa I love it. They gave me tools to deal with it. They were on call for 24 hours.”

Meanwhile, back in the villa, Curtis and Maura officially sealed the deal on Wednesday night as they were spied passionately snogging on the outdoor sofas. 

Luckily for Amy, now that she’s back home, she’s free to move on from her ex and get back on the dating scene.
