Amy Hart's dad can't watch her Love Island heartbreak as she quits villa
Amy Hart’s father Ian ‘cannot watch his daughter on Love Island’, following her heartbreak at the hands of Curtis Pritchard which forced her to leave the show this week.
The flight attendant quit the villa yesterday, with many viewers worried for her after Curtis began flirting with Maura Higgins.
Amy previously put her heart, so to speak, on the line when she admitted she had fallen in love with Curtis, only for him to admit he had second thoughts while she was in Casa Amor.
This is where things began to get a little dramatic and emotional and the sight of Amy in tears was apparently too much for her dad to bear, according to sources.
The Sun has reported a source as claiming: ‘Ian’s a normal father who finds it concerning to watch his daughter go through the rigours of Love Island.
‘He can’t bear to read all the upsetting opinions on the internet about her. He has taken down his Facebook account and now refuses to watch the show.
‘Any father would find this sort of thing very tough to watch while powerless to intervene.’
Yesterday it was confirmed Amy had left the Love Island villa, after claiming she had nothing left after Curtis dumped her.
We can’t lie to you, it was tough to watch her have her heart broken – even if it is the nature of the show at times.
A source close to Amy told The Sun Online yesterday: ‘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.’
Ian appeared on This Morning last week alongside Amy’s mother Sue where they said they backed their daughter’s decision to go on the show in a quest for love.
However now it’s become apparent they’ve questioned whether it was the right thing to do, as the source this week added: ‘How things have changed in less than a week. Maybe he’s having second thoughts about her entering now.’
Still, as we’ve seen showcased in the villa she’s not one to back down from following her heart.
Yesterday the source said of her leaving: ‘She is a strong woman who knows her own mind and the show has given her the confidence to give finding love on the outside a go.’
Love Island returns 9pm on ITV2.
