Amber Gill has given her thought’s on Maura Higgins’ viral reaction to her Love Island win.
The Irish model appeared shocked that Amber had won the show with Irish rugby player Greg O’Shea.
“I’m not sure if her reaction was more because Ovie was so super-excited,” Amber explained to The Sun.
“If you watch it – and I’ve watched it back – Ovie screams his head off and Maura looks up at him like, ‘What’s going on?'”
“She was shocked, but everyone was, so it would be unfair for me to [criticise] her for that.”
“If you look back on the other seasons it’s always the couple who have been boyfriend and girlfriend from the beginning who win.”
Amber admitted that her win with Greg was unprecedented.
“It’s never been the girl with the guy who showed up, like, two days ago, so we had all ruled it out.”
When asked if she likes Maura, Amber replied: “Umm, yeah. You know what? I do.”
“When she first came in I thought, ‘Oh my God, she’s come in to steal Tommy from Molly.'”
“She didn’t care and we were all like, ‘Who is this girl?’
“But as the time went on I grew to like her because she did have a softer side. I haven’t spoken to her that much since leaving, though.”
