Love Island's Amy Hart Showered With Support After Fat-Shaming

Love Island star Amy Hart has received an outpouring of support from her followers after revealing she was sent fat-shaming comments after leaving the villa.

Amy, 28, took part in the fifth season of the hit ITV 2 dating show in 2019. After a tumultuous end to her relationship with fellow Islander Curtis Pritchard, Amy decided to leave the villa on day 37.

The former flight attendant took to Twitter on Thursday and posted a throwback snap from the day she left the villa.

Whilst in the villa, Islanders are not allowed to use their personal phones and are unable to access social media. Upon leaving the show, Amy was given her phone and she says she was called fat by people online. The picture shows Amy wearing a red bikini.

Amy said: "This was taken the day I came home from Love Island. Had just read hundreds of tweets calling me fat. Wish I was this fat now."

Amy's follows responded to Amy's post by sending her messages of support. One Twitter user said: "Thats why social media is so toxic and can affect lovely people who just lack confidence as they believe it."

Another woman shared: "Hope you aren't letting negative Nellie's affect you. Why do people think it's OK to comment in a negative way on another humans body? You look lovely. All the best to you".

While a third user shared: "Look amazing, but what makes you super special is you're an amazing person and looks, weight can’t change that. That’s what’s inside xxx."

A fourth chipped in, writing: "Honestly don’t understand people's motivation to say such crap. Even if it was true - why say it!."

ITV bosses urged Love Island viewers to 'be kind' ahead of the 2021 series and to "think before they post".

A post shared on the Love Island Twitter in June teasing the announcement of the new Islanders read: "These Islanders are all single and ready to find love. We can't wait to watch them get to know each other, date and maybe even find The One.

"We're so grateful they're letting us follow their journey this summer. We hope you enjoy the show, but please think before you post."
