Love Island star Amy Hart has revealed how she’s lost friends since appearing on the ITV2 reality show.
The 26-year-old became emotional as she spoke to partygoers at her birthday celebrations this week, saying they were her “real friends”.
Amy, who was left heartbroken after being dumped by Curtis Pritchard on the show, took to social media to address the support she’s received from her close friends and family.
Sporting a stunning royal blue dress while standing on the stairs to speak in front of the crowd, Amy said: “The criteria for today’s invitation list was as follows – nice to me before the villa, supportive whilst I was in the villa, and nice to me when I came out of the villa.
“A lot of people that have been in my life for a long time didn’t actually meet that criteria… which is really sad but I am so grateful that I have all of you.”
She added: “And I know you are my real friends because a lot of you were banned from Facebook during the time I was in the villa.”
It comes after Amy discussed her villa experience, denying claims that producers on the show told her to leave after her drama with Curtis.
She exclusively told OK! magazine: “Some people are saying the producers told me to leave, but it was my decision."
Tearing up, she added: “As I was leaving, I said to everyone: ‘I don’t fit into groups, people don’t want to be my friend, people think I’m weird, but you all accepted and loved me for who I am.
“Despite my horrible heartbreak, the show has left me feeling more confident about who I am because I’ve been accepted.
“I went in there looking for a fairy tale. But if Casa Amor hadn’t happened, Curtis and I would’ve sailed along and then he would’ve dumped me when we got out.”
