Amy wouldn’t be the first beauty pageant contestant to appear on Love Island (Picture: Instagram)Love Island have reportedly recruited British Airways cabin crew and beauty pageant contestant Amy Hart to appear on this year’s series.
Speaking to The Sun, a source close to the ITV2 show said: ‘Amy has been a fan of Love Island for years, she’s always dreamed of being on the show.
‘When fellow air stewardess Laura Anderson took part last year it really spurred her on and gave her even more of a reason to apply.’
Amy, 26, has been a member of British Airways’ cabin crew for nine years and was once crowned Miss United Kingdom in the Miss Beautiful International pageant.
Just as Amy isn’t the only flight attendant to have taken part in the show, she’s also not the first pageant contestant as former Miss GB herself, Zara Holland, appeared on the second series of Love Island.
Zara was stripped of her title after having sex with fellow Islander, Alex Bowen, and has since called for the show to be axed following the deaths of two former contestants.

‘I honestly believe I was brainwashed.’
Meanwhile, the current reigning Miss GB, Kobi-Jean Cole, has refuted claims she’s already quit the show before it’s even begun.
Rumours claimed she had decided to step away from the show ‘out of respect’ for her title, but a source has told Metro.co.uk Kobi-Jean was never even in the line-up.
Amy is rumoured to be joined by Love Island’s first ever ‘plus size’ contestant, model and mental health campaigner Jada Sezer.

Tyson Fury’s younger brother Tommy is also said to be entering the villa this summer, with the legendary boxer revealing the news in an interview with ESPN: ‘He’s going on a TV show called Love Island. He’s a good looking young kid and I think he’s going to be a hit with the ladies on it.’
The new stars will be subject to the show’s new duty of care process, which will see all Islanders receive therapy and continuous assessments throughout their time in the villa and after.
Love Island returns on 3 June, on ITV2.
