Love Island winner Amber Gill has said that she and Irish rugby player Greg O'Shea are "taking things really slowly" in their budding romance.

The Newcastle native and Limerick sports star won the reality TV show last month with almost half the public vote, despite being only coupled up for a matter of weeks.

Gill has now opened up about their relationship on ITV's talk show Loose Women. 

"We're officially dating but we're not official yet," she said.

"That's the thing, because Love Island is such a weird situation, it's quite intense, we have only known each other a month."

Gill is gearing up to meet O'Shea's family in Ireland this weekend, and she said that was one of the reasons they aren't official just yet.

"I think that is probably the reason we are not official, I haven't met any of his family", she explained.

"I haven't been over to Ireland yet, so that is the next step, but we are taking things really slowly."

She added: "I think that, if you want to make something work, you put the effort in. If you really like someone, you are going to go to the ends of the earth to be with them."

Gill coupled up with 24-year-old O'Shea after a turbulent relationship with firefighter Michael Griffiths.

The 22-year-old beautician said that she believes her generation has a low tolerance for bad behaviour and infidelity.

"It's one strike and then you're out. Cheating, anything like that, you're gone, and I'm a bit like that as well", she said.

"I think it's probably because we're younger at the minute but even people that have been with (someone) two years, you're gone if you put a foot wrong.

"It's good in a way because I know myself and I know what I want and I want better, but you might catch people throwing away a good thing because they've got this guard."
