Love Island star Amy Hart has been seen for the first time since her dramatic departure from the villa.
The air hostess, 26, bumped into show narrator Iain Stirling’s girlfriend Laura Whitmore, 34, as she arrived at Palma de Mallorca Airport on Wednesday morning to fly home to the UK, amid claims she was told to leave by ITV2 producers.
Amy voluntarily left the series in scenes aired on Tuesday night’s show, following the collapse of her four-week romance with Curtis Pritchard, 23, and his subsequent developing relationship with Maura Higgins, 28.

Sharing a snap of the pair together, Laura wrote: ‘Bumped into Amy at the airport and she is just a sweetheart.’
Amy had to be in lock-down in Mallorca until her exit on Tuesday’s show aired, but the new-found reality star looked delighted to be travelling back to the UK to be reunited with her friends and family.
The blonde’s shock departure has aroused suspicion from fellow reality star Chloe Goodman, who says she isn’t entirely convinced the decision was her own and believes producers stepped in.

Other viewers echoed Chloe’s thoughts that Amy was advised to leave the villa.
One wrote: ‘I think Amy was asked to leave by producers as they are clearly worried about her. The night before she was so happy she was saved from being voted off. Doesn’t add up.’

Another added: ‘It’s clear that Amy was pulled aside by producers at some point and told she would have to leave over concerns for her mental health and that they then gave her the opportunity to excuse herself and say goodbye.’
A third chimed: ‘I think it was all staged- AMY LEAVING- after all the negative comments on Twitter, producers probably thought we will give you centre stage and deliver your leaving speech, thus everyone in tears and flooded with good comments. ALL FIXED.’
A Love Island spokesperson denied the claims and said: ‘This is untrue. As viewers saw on the show, Amy made the decision to leave the villa herself.’

It comes after Love Island bosses have rubbished claims they ‘allowed’ Maura to pursue Curtis, leaving his ex Amy heartbroken before she quit the villa.
According to The Sun, Amy was left distraught after show bosses ‘made romance happen’ between dancer Curtis, 23, and Maura, 28.
But show bosses slammed the reports, saying relationships formed in the villa are completely organic.
Sad: After coming to the conclusion that she wanted to leave the show, Amy opened up to her fellow Islanders about how she had been feeling
A Love Island spokesman said: ‘This is untrue. The opinions the Islanders have, decisions they make and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves.’
This comes as six former Love Island stars have heaped criticism on Love Island bosses, with one revealing he felt ‘suicidal’ after leaving the show.
Malin Andersson, 26, Josh Denzel, 26, and Adam Collard, 22, have all spoken out alongside this year’s Islander, Callum MacLeod, 28, as well as Paul Knops, 31, and Alex Miller, 28.
They claim that bosses were ‘pulling the strings behind the scenes which left them feeling depressed.’
Their claims come after Love Island bosses revealed they had evolved their aftercare processes following the tragic deaths of Mike Thalassitis, who died aged 26 and Sophie Gradon, who passed away aged 32.

Speaking to Curtis before making her exit, she said: ‘I came in here and I thought I was going to meet some nice people and I’d probably date one of them and they’d be alright and then I met you and you completely turned my whole world around.
‘We made each other happy.
‘All I’ve ever wanted is for you to be happy. I want us to be best, best friends but we both need to move on and we both need to find someone that is going to make us as happy as we make them.’
Well-wishes: ‘I want him to be happy and I want him to meet someone else so I’m leaving here today not holding any grudges against anyone, not against Curtis, not against Maura, no one’
She later explained her decision to leave the villa to her fellow Islanders: ‘I have made some of the best friends I have ever had… I love you all dearly.
‘Obviously, as you all know, I did fall in love. And when you love someone you have to let them go.
‘My Love Island journey finished last night when I sat at that fire pit and I looked at it and thought, “Even if I had to take the last week, I would take it if it meant I could take those first four weeks over again.”
‘I want to leave in a positive way, surrounded by the people I love, like this… I love you all so much and I cannot tell you what you’ve all done for me.’
Viewers of Love Island found themselves in floods of tears across the country after Amy represented everyone who had ever had a broken heart.
