Love Island star Amy Day has opened up about the unseen bits of villa life and what happens behind-the-scenes, including why the boys and girls are separated at lunchtime.

During an exclusive interview with OK!, Amy, who recently left the ITV2 show alongside former flame Hugo Hammond, revealed that the males and females are kept apart as they tuck into catered food in scenes that don’t air on screen.

The 25-year-old professional dancer, singer and actress, who lives in Surrey, explained: “The cameras are always rolling but we had downtime, as in we’d set tables and chairs up in the kitchen for lunch and the lunch would be bought in.”

She continued: “The girls were split from the boys at lunch time because they didn’t want to miss any good chats, or any drama going on.”

Adding that she and the rest of the girl gang, including Millie Court and Chloe Burrows, always enjoyed their private, quality time together, Amy said: “We’d sit down and chat about life and really silly things.”

Elsewhere in our chat, Amy reflected on her time on the show, specifically her failed romance with P.E teacher Hugo.

Amy said that while the pair had recently clashed on ITV2 spinoff show Love Island: Aftersun, she had no hard feelings towards him.

Opening up about locking horns with him days after he awkwardly “friend zoned” her on camera, Amy said: “Since walking out [of the villa] the only time that we’ve spoken was the dinner chat that was on Aftersun.”

“My feelings on Aftersun were so new and he hadn’t reached out or shown any remorse. I don’t think that he or anyone realises that we had shared ten days together and he’d never told me about being just friends, or that he wasn’t feeling it – and I gave him a few opportunities to come clean. That’s why it was such a shock.”

But Amy insisted it wouldn’t be awkward next time the pair come face-to-face.

She continued: “I’m going to be absolutely fine and I’m sure he is too. I’m not one to hold grudges.”

She added: “We’re all going out soon and it will be absolutely fine. On my side, I’m absolutely one hundred percent fine.”

Now, Amy tells us she’s looking forward to her future and dreams of landing a role in a West End show or on a TV series.

She explained: “I’m manifesting it. I’m going to make it happen. I’m just really excited to get back in audition rooms and rehearsals. I could do anything from a straight drama, to a musical or music video. I just want to do it all.”

And she’s not ruling out another appearance on reality TV, with favourites including Strictly Come Dancing and Celebs Go Dating.

She said: “Strictly would be my absolute dream, whether or not they’d have me I’m not sure. I’d also do Celebs Go Dating as it looks hysterical and so much fun.”
