Love Island’s Amy Hart has QUIT the show and left the villa after Curtis Pritchard dumped her and broke her heart.
The air-stewardess, 26, told producers she wanted to leave, after her ‘half-boyfriend’ split with her after having his head turned in Casa Amor and the scenes will be shown on Tuesday night’s show.
The shock move comes after her co-star Maura was accused of breaking the girl code when she made her move on ‘husband material’ Curtis without talking to Amy.

A source close to Amy told The Sun: ‘It was Amy’s decision to walk from the villa as she felt she had gotten as much as she could from the experience.
‘She fell in love, had her heart broken and couldn’t stand the thought of seeing Curtis crack on with other girls while under the same roof as her.
‘She was given therapy and support from the producers at ITV and they felt she was emotionally sound enough to make her own decision. They would never dream of keeping someone in there if they weren’t happy about it.’
On Monday night’s show, viewers will see Amy fume at Maura for persuading her to dump Curtis – as the model prepared to ‘swoop in’ on the single ballroom dancer.

Amy has spent much of the last few episodes in tears after Curtis had said he didn’t want to give their romance another chance.
He said he couldn’t promise that he wouldn’t have his head turned by someone again as he did with Jourdan Riane, while Amy was in Casa Amor.
On Thursday, Amy was taken off set and offered psychological support after viewers urged producers to step in amid her heartbreak over Curtis’ wandering eye.
Fans had raised concerns for Amy’s mental health after she broke down in tears following the dancer’s betrayal in devastating scenes, with the dramatic recoupling sparking nearly 200 Ofcom complaints.
Betrayal: Maura was accused of breaking girl code when she made her move on ‘husband material’ Curtis without talking to his ex, Amy on Sunday
A spokesman for the hit ITV2 show said psychological support was on-hand for any of the Islanders at any time 24/7, particularly if they were upset or appeared to be struggling with life in the villa.
They told MailOnline: ‘We take the emotional well-being of all the Islanders extremely seriously.
‘We have dedicated welfare producers and psychological support on hand at all times who monitor and regularly speak to all of the Islanders in private and off camera, especially if someone appears to be upset.
‘All the Islanders are therefore fully supported by the professionals on site and by their friends in the villa.
‘This means Islanders are always able to reach out and talk to someone if they feel the need.
‘We will of course continue to monitor all of our Islanders in line with our robust protocols.
‘Love Island holds a mirror up to relationships and all the different dynamics that go with them.’
Meanwhile, Maura is set to face the repercussions of her betrayal in Monday’s Love Island, after she decides to tell the girls the truth about her feelings towards the ballroom dancer, 23.
A furious Amy accuses Maura of being dishonest as she questions if the Irish beauty warned her off Curtis so she could swoop in for herself and steal him from under her nose.
Unimpressed: Clearly stung by her betrayal, Anna waspishly hits back: ‘Do you not think you should have told Amy?’ To which, Maura replies: ‘Right now, I don’t want to hurt Amy.’
Speaking with Anna Vakili, Molly-Mae Hague and Lucie Donlan on the bean bags, Maura, 28, drops the bombshell: ‘I told Curtis I had feelings for him.’
The ring girl goes on to explain she has had feelings for Curtis since she arrived in the villa, but didn’t want to express how she felt as Curtis and Amy had a strong romantic connection.
To which, Anna waspishly hits back: ‘Do you not think you should have told Amy?’ Maura replies: ‘Right now, I don’t want to hurt Amy.’
Anna reinforces her point that Maura should have spoken with Amy, but the model’s best pal Lucie interjects and explains this is a similar situation to when she told Tommy she had feelings for him.
Taking no nonsense, Anna replies: ‘I’ll tell you straight. You [Lucie] should have told Molly before you told Tommy, and you [Maura] should have told Amy before you told Curtis.
‘If I ended up liking one of your girl’s man, I would go to you first.’
After being given a stern warning about her behaviour and with the girls turning on her, Maura decides it is time to tell Amy about her conversation with Curtis.
Sticking up: Anna reinforces her point Maura should have spoken with Amy, but the model’s best pal Lucie interjects to say it’s the same when she told Tommy she had feelings for him
‘From day one, I said that he [Curtis] would have been one of the guys I would have gone for,’ she said.
‘I do fancy him. I’m an honest person, I can’t hold back, so I did tell him that I liked him.’
Clearly stung by the betrayal, Amy hits back: ‘But not honest enough to come and tell me first that you were going to do it?’

Trying to deflect the blame, Maura replies: ‘When I came in here, I felt that out of all the girls here, you were the one that wouldn’t let me in.’
Amy says: ‘A lot of stuff makes sense to me now. You were one of the most vocal that he didn’t deserve a second chance.’
Maura replies: ‘If you honestly think that I’ve done that to swoop in, you’re very wrong.’
Just days before the tense showdown, the ring girl was a pillar of support for Amy, who was left devastated to learn Curtis was tempted to break off their romance during her time in Casa Amor.
Fans praised Maura for being ‘the friend everyone needs’ after her ‘brutal honesty’ when she told the air hostess: ‘Babe I’m sorry but you’re better than that and this is a f*****g joke.’
And after Lucie Donlan asked Amy whether she truly loved Curtis, Maura firmly added: ‘Why are you asking her that? Does he love you? It’s harsh babe but I’m serious, he wouldn’t have done that if he did.’
Turning to face her friend the brunette added: ‘Do you honestly think that you deserve this? I’m sorry but seriously?’
But now Amy thinks Maura’s interference was a deliberate ploy to steal her man right from under her nose.
On Sunday night’s main show the Irish native told Curtis she had feelings for him during a heartfelt chat.
And it appears that Maura’s feelings are only intensifying as she revealed to Caroline that she’s had her eye on ‘handsome’ Curtis from the get go on Aftersun.
She said: ‘You know what, I said when I came into the villa in week one, that he was one of the guys that I would have stepped forward for.’
Addressing his messy split with Amy, she continued: ‘He is single now and I know he’s done awful, he has done awful to Amy, but I mean he’s a handsome man. If I like him, I have go for it.’
Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm on Tuesday.
