Celebs Go Dating’s Amy Hart has revealed she is still having therapy sessions after her Love Island experience last year left her scarred.

Amy made a dramatic early exit from the villa after her “half-boyfriend” Curtis Pritchard dumped her and swiftly moved on to Irish bombshell Maura Higgins in front of her.

But speaking about Maura and Curtis’ recent break up, following Maura reportedly growing close to her Dancing on Ice skating partner and Curtis’ drunken behaviour during the NTA’s earlier this year, Amy was sympathetic.

“Break ups are hard for everyone and look, I genuinely hope they’re both alright,” she said.

“I’ve been out of Love Island for nine months and it has been hard. I’m still having therapy, but it was hard and to come out and realise overnight everything had changed.

Speaking to The Sun, she added, “I get a lot of nasty trolling and I can’t help but bite back. People preach about being kind but they’re anything but.”

Amy has been honest and open about her experience with her mental health, last year telling heat, “I have had mental health issues in the past but I was reluctant to accept it. I didn’t admit that I had anxiety until a couple of years after I first started my job flying at British Airways.

Explaining her anxiety intensified with the break up, she continued, “The welfare girl came in every single lunchtime apart from one day a week to check how much water we were having, how much we’d eaten and how we were.

"When it all went tits up for me and I was lying in bed crying at lunchtime, she would get into bed with me and just stroke my head and talk to me and now I speak to her on the phone twice a week to check how I am."
