Love Island’s Amber Gill cuddles up to girlfriend Jen Beattie after red carpet d
Love Island star Amber Gill has been spotted cuddling up with girlfriend Jen Beattie after the couple hit the red carpet together for the first time.
The 2019 Love Island winner, 25, had been linked to the Arsenal star, 31, since they were seen on a date at Winter Wonderland in December.
On Valentine’s Day Amber appeared to confirm they were dating, but it was this week that they made their red carpet debut, at Radio 1’s Big Weekend Launch Party on Wednesday.
Now photos have shown them right after the event, cuddling in the back of a cab.
In the snap, Amber has her arm wrapped around Jen’s neck, while the footballer rests her hand on Amber’s leg as the two leant into each other.
Earlier, the pair posed for photos at the event, with Amber wearing an all-white outfit with a corset and cut-out jeans and a black Chanel bag, while Jen wore a tee with jeans.
At the event Amber also spoke about how she was ‘so happy’ and praised her loved ones for being progressive and open-minded about her new relationship.
‘I think England is progressive in ways because for all my friends and family it was a non-thing,’ she said. ‘I didn’t “come out”. I was fine.’
‘We are slowly getting there,’ she told The Mirror.
‘What the people before me have done means that I can come out with my girlfriend, I can say I’m in a relationship with a girl and everything is fine, which wasn’t a thing before.’
She added: ‘People were scared of that. I feel in a good position.’
Although she said some ‘close-minded’ followers on social media hadn’t been as supportive, Amber has shrugged it off.
Amber won Love Island with rugby union player Greg O’Shea, beating the bookies’ favourites Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague in the final.
Love Island is streaming on ITVX.
