Former Love Island star Joanna Chimonides has revealed that she and Amber Gill were close friends during their time in the villa, despite being involved in a love triangle with Michael Griffiths.
Joanna was voted off out of the villa by her fellow islanders and famously dumped Michael immediately when he refused to leave the villa after claiming he had found everything he was looking for in Joanna.
Now, speaking to Metro.co.uk after settling back in the UK, Joanna has suggested that there were parts of her stay in the villa that weren’t shown by producers.
‘My personality wasn’t shown as much throughout my time in there,’she says, ‘but also mine and Amber’s relationship wasn’t shown enough’.
‘We really got along. We did each other’s make up and hair, and it would have been nice for viewers to see that.’
Joanna came into the villa during the Casa Amor twist and Michael’s head was immediately turned, telling Joanna that things had never been right between him and Amber.
But the 22-year-old adds that she began to realise Michael was ‘not being truthful’ when he insisted he had no feelings left for Amber.
‘When I questioned things, it was because there are always still feelings there when you split with someone and the fact he was denying it made me think “you’re not being truthful”,’ she says.
As for Michael’s decision in the last week to crack back on with Amber, Joanna says that she has been left ‘disappointed’ in the 26-year-old firefighter.
‘All in all I was disappointed in Michael,’ she admits.
‘He couldn’t be honest with me or Amber, it’s the lack of communication that gets me.’
Love Island viewers were left stunned on Friday when a recoupling ceremony saw Amber shun Michael, choosing instead to couple up with newbie Greg O’Shea.
Joanna however was full of praise for the 21-year-old on her decision; taking to her Instagram story, Joanna told her 344,000 followers: ‘I am actually really proud of her, I’m not going to lie.
‘That was probably one of the hardest decisions that she was going to have to make and she did so well. Good on her!’
Love Island continues at 9pm on Sunday on ITV2.
