Love Island star Samira Mighty is reportedly being sued for quitting the West End musical Dreamgirls – just days before she entered the villa.

The dancer worked as an ensemble member of the successful production, but shocked bosses at London’s Savoy Theatre by giving them just one day’s notice to jet to Mallorca.

According to The Sun, Sonia Friedman Productions are demanding £3,000 in compensation

An insider told the publication, “She won’t walk into a job any time soon. Her name is mud and her behaviour totally unprofessional.”

Speaking previously to Metro.co.uk, Samira said, “I was in ensemble so it was quite easy to fill, I didn’t have a cover that was harder to cast, so someone from last year is doing it now.”

“It was win win, if I carried on in Dreamgirls – it’s fantastic and I love it so much – but in five months I may be unemployed again, but [Love Island] was fantastic, I couldn’t turn it down.”

“I also write my own music and stuff so it would be great to get my music out on YouTube.”

The 22-year-old trained at the Millennium Performing Arts school in Woolwich for three years, and previously starred in Mamma Mia at the Novello Theatre.
