Love Island’s Amy Hart in therapy as she opens up about ‘struggle’ after leaving ITV2 show

Former Love Island contestant Amy Hart has said she has gone to therapy since leaving the show last year and it has left her feeling like a ‘totally different person’.

The 27 year-old has said she has used therapy to work on her anxiety.

"Yes, 100 per cent I’ve changed as a person. I'm still in therapy and it's made me totally different - I’m a lot more chilled. My brain was always in overdrive," she told The Sun.

"I always used to have music on all the time, everywhere I walked. If I went to get a glass of water in the kitchen I would put my headphones in.

"I walked 45 minutes the other day and I walked back with no music and my head was so clear. I'm a lot more chilled and enjoy life a lot more, with a lot less anxiety."

Hart quit Love Island in 2019 after fellow contestant Curtis Pritchard broke up with her.

Yet despite the psychological affects the show has had on her, she has said she does not regret going on the ITV2 hit.

"I did struggle at the beginning when I came out of Love Island, but you’ve got to learn to manage it. I wouldn’t have had therapy if I’d not been on Love Island, I’m really grateful," she added.

"I wouldn’t change anything; I would do it again tomorrow. You’ve just got to learn how to deal with it."
