Amber Gill reacts after being slammed by Love Island fans over Gemma Owen tweet

Ex-Love Island winner Amber Gill is always forthcoming with her views when it comes to the current series of the ITV dating show – and this year is no exception either.

The Geordie lass, 24, who appeared on the programme in 2019, never disappoints fans on Twitter with her outspoken and candid opinions about the fresh contestants.

Amber is certainly not somebody who beats around that bush with her thoughts and she proved that during her own stint three years ago.

Continuing to put her point across as this years show gets underway, the former Newcastle beauty therapist took to her platform to share her views on Michael Owen's daughter.

On Wednesday's episode, Gemma was the only girl in the Spanish villa not to be picked to serve up a starter, main or desert for the two new hunky bombshells.

Over the past week or so, fans in their masses have complained that Love Island had become very much the "Gemma show".

This after her ex-boyfriend Jacques O'Neil had waltzed into the villa and Gemma also proving to be popular with a number of guys who were fighting for her attention.

After being at the centre of limelight for the past few days, viewers were elated that the horse lover was needing to take a back seat on Wednesday's episode – allowing other cast members to shine.

Getting in on the action, Amber took to Twitter to air her own views on the situation writing: "Gemma is pi***d the whole show isn't revolving around her for 5 minutes #loveisland."

While many online users seemed to agree with Amber's comments, others were annoyed and hit out to tell the former star to "leave it out".

One tweet read: "Look all the girls came on here for their 15 mins of fame. Whether you agree with it or not, its not fair that one person gets singled out because thats the producers choice. They all need their time to shine. It needs to be more organic not pre planned."

A second echoed: "No literally. I've seen so many past Love Island girls talking down on girls from this series. And it's the same ones that were all '#BeKind' not so long ago."

A third said: "Why is it fun to pick on Gemma? She’s literally 19 leave it out."

Shooting down "picking on" accusations, amber set the record straight with a follow up tweet.

The ITV star penned: "Not people coming on my tweet saying I'm picking on Gemma I have loved her from day one so you can all piss off, respectfully."

Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 at 9pm
