THE Love Island villa has always been filled with drama.
It’s also a place where people pretend to be something they’re not, and producers secretly tell contestants what to say.
A perfect place for an aspiring actress to learn her craft, then.
I’m told the show’s 2017 winner, Amber Davies, has landed her first acting role on telly since triumphing alongside her then-boyfriend Kem Cetinay.
The Welsh star, who has made a big name for herself in the West End since appearing on the ITV2 show, will appear in the CBBC series Almost Never.
Amber, who will appear alongside the likes of Kimberly Wyatt and Aston Merrygold, started work on the comedy drama this week.
The series follows the ups and downs of boy band The Wonderland as they seek fame and fortune.
A BBC source said: “Amber is really keen to get into the world of acting on telly, and this is a great first step for her. She couldn’t wait to get started after agreeing to take part.”
Amber is a rare success story off the back of the ITV2 show, having landed a plum West End role in Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5.
And this week she danced into the musical of Bring It On. That villa must feel like a long distant memory now . . .
