Amy Hart had a tricky start on Love Island. While everything seemed dandy when the former air hostess coupled up with ballroom dancer Curtis Pritchard and began a rom-com perfect relationship, the public struggled to warm to her due to her frosty relationship with co-star Lucie Donlan. But when the star's heartbreak played out to the nation as Curtis changed his mind about their relationship seemingly out of the blue, everyone watching could relate. Twitter exploded with messages of support for the 26-year-old, who admitted she's never had a boyfriend, and the painful scenes were a talking point in every office across the country. Amy then took it upon herself to exit the villa for her 'mental health' and so her former 'half-boyfriend' could move on without feeling guilty and breaking her heart even further, tearfully announcing the news to her devastated co-stars.

We couldn't fault her for how she handled the savage break-up. While Amy was visibly devastated, she took the high road and explained she wanted to walk away from the break-up with a solid friendship. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that the ITV2 star has messaged Curtis' famous brother AJ since exiting the villa. The Strictly Come Dancing star revealed the heartwarming news when he appeared on Dan Wootton's talkRADIO show, telling the host, "She spoke to me. She sent me a message actually afterwards and said she feels like she knows the family and she could only praise Curtis about being honest."

The dancer went on to defend Curtis for his treatment of Amy, telling Dan, "Sometimes he was maybe a bit too brutally honest. He could have let her down a bit softer rather than saying 'yes, I don't see myself marrying you and having kids with you'. That was harsh, I'm not lying, it was harsh. But it's better to be honest. Rip that bandage off. I think it was best to be straight because you don’t want to play with people's emotions. It's tough enough in there anyway. Everyone feels vulnerable. You're being judged by other people."

Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm.
