Love Island’s Amy Hart opens up on what therapy inside the villa is really like as she admits she’ll continue to use psych team for 14 months07/17/2019
Amy Hart has exclusively opened up on having therapy in the Love Island villa.
The reality TV star, who has already bagged herself a slot on the Loose Women panel following her shock exit , revealed she used the 24-hour psych team 12 times during her time on the show, following her savage break up from Curtis Pritchard.
Speaking exclusively to us in her first magazine shoot since she left Spain, the star opened up on what the support is really like on the show, following months of backlash after the tragic death of Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.
“I was fully supported in there,” she recalled. “The welfare team come in twice a day to chat to everyone and then, if you were upset, they took you out.
“You also have access to the 24-hour psych team.”
She added: “At first I was very reluctant to use them – I felt it was weak, but then I realised everyone was using them.
“I had my therapy in the confines of the villa, you take your mic off and talk freely. I’ve never had therapy before and I didn’t know what I’d been missing.
“I want to help break the stigma, it’s so good to talk.”

Amy, who says she feels so much more confined in herself since leaving the villa, went on to reveal that she saw the team three times in Casa Amor as she was missing Curtis so much.
“I was absolutely beside myself. I lay in bed crying for five days because I was missing Curtis so much. The day I found out we weren’t going back to the villa when I thought we were I just got under the covers and burst into tears.”
She revealed how her fellow islanders tried to help her through her heartache, with Marvin and Amber offering advice.
“Marvin made me go to the gym every day so the endorphins would make me feel better and Amber gave me her crystal. I clutched it all night but it didn’t work.
“I’ve come out stronger though, and will continue to have full therapy with Love Island; I’m going to be provided with aftercare for the next 14 months and eve longer if I still want it.”
