Amber Davies warns Love Island contestants

Amber Davies has urged ‘Love Island’ contestants to make long-term career plans.
The star – who won the ITV2 dating show alongside then-boyfriend Kem Cetinay in 2017 – admitted she was worried her time in the spotlight was up last year as ‘Love Island’ went on to create new stars but she is now feeling happy and secure after landing her dream role in the musical ’9 to 5′.
And she hopes that the latest batch of islanders can find work that makes them happy, rather than relying on their 15 minutes of fame which the ITV2 show will bring.
She told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: "Last year I was anxious watching ‘Love Island’ as there was another new batch of islanders coming out and I was worried about being old news.
"I used to crucify myself if somebody else had another job over me and you can’t live like that. But then I found musical theatre and I feel like I’m on my own path and my own journey."
Amber went on to praise the importance of surrounding yourself with a strong support system and warned the new contestants that it will take time to find the perfect fit for them.
However, she insisted she doesn’t regret her time on ‘Love Island’.
Meanwhile, Amber’s career is going from strength to strength and along with starring as Judy Bernly in the West End musical ’9 to 5′ – based on the 1980 film of the same name, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton – she is reportedly also set to compete in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
Amber is starring in the stage show alongside Louise Redknapp, who plays Violet and Natalie McQueen, who plays Doralee, and the musical reportedly brought her to the attention of ‘Strictly’ producers.
