Love Island winner Dani Dyer has said that many of her fellow contestants struggled after their time on the reality show, but that show producers were "just a phone call away".

Dyer, who won in last year's series of the dating show with boyfriend Jack Fincham, spoke about the challenge of going from "literally being no one" to famous "overnight".

The popular dating show recently announced "proactive" changes to aftercare for its stars after the tragic death of 2017 Love Island contestant, Mike Thalassitis, earlier this month.

Last year, Sophie Gradon, who appeared on season two of the reality show in 2016, was also found dead.

Mike Thalassitis was on Love Island in 2017, while Sophie Gradon appeared on the show in 2016

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Dyer said that Mike's death was "absolutely devastating for everyone".

"It is tough going from literally being no one to then all of a sudden overnight coming out and being someone, it is difficult, you go from one extreme to the other and it's sad that it ended that way.

"Personally, for me, I've always had a relationship with the producers, they've always been a phone call away.

"And I know from the other Islanders because we have had struggles, we've had moments where we're like 'I'm struggling, this is really tough now'."

Asked by the host if she feels she has been given access to help if needed after her Love Island experience, Dyer, who is the daughter of actor Danny Dyer, said: "Yes I have had that, I have 100% had that fully.

"Before you go in Love Island you do have all that, you do go through tests, you go through loads and loads of tests. You have an STI test.

"All the other proper serious tests, all that is done and afterwards. Even when I came out of Love Island, I've got (the show psychologist's) number and she said 'Please ring me whenever' so I did feel like I had that."

ITV's chief executive, Carolyn McCall, responded to debate over Thalassitis' death by saying the show can't keep up aftercare of contestants "indefinitely".

"There has got to be a framework and it will come to an end. It can’t be indefinite," McCall said at the Broadcasting Press Guild on Thursday.

The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday March 30 at 9.45pm on UTV.
