Former Love Islander Amy Hart, who was one-half of a now iconic clip with Curtis Pritchard, shared tips with hopeful applicants, saying: “Be yourself - you’ll get found out. And it’ll be even harder to keep up a facade when you’re in the villa.
“Be honest - don’t pretend to be a rocket scientist if you’re not. But if you are, shout it from the rooftops!
“Be creative and show your personality - remember, it’s for a TV show!”
The ITV website states: “ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of love!
