Amy Hart has landed a "dream" TV gig following her exit from the Love Island villa - she will be joining Loose Women as a panellist next week.

The former islander announced the news on Twitter, saying it was an "absolute dream come true" and adding: "Thank you @loosewomen I won't let you down."

The show's official Twitter account said they "can't wait to welcome Amy back to the #LooseWomen panel."

She appeared on Monday's Loose Women on Monday where she revealed she was a huge fan of the ITV lunchtime chat show.

"Can I just say, I have watched Loose Women since I was about 12. So that's 15 years," she said. "I used to record it and watch it after school."

"Everyone else were watching kids' TV, and I'd be watching Loose Women. I've sat in the audience four times, and now I'm here!"
