Amber Davies has dubbed the Love Island 2019 cast fame-hungry and insists everyone in the villa knows exactly what they're signing up for.
Amber, who won won Love Island 2017 with now-ex Kem Cetinay, was asked by Lorraine Kelly about ITV's duty of care towards its stars in the wake of Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis' tragic deaths.
The 9 To 5 stage star said she personally found the aftercare provided by the ITV2 show "amazing", and pointed out that "no-one's holding a gun to your head" when the Islanders apply to go into the villa.
"When you went in it was still quite new, people were going in there looking for love," Lorraine said on her show this morning. "Now though, are they not going in looking for fame?"
Amber replied: "I think it's inevitable. Now they know exactly what they're going in, and they know exactly what's going to happen when they come out.
"They're signing up for fame. We necessarily didn't sign up for fame, we didn't. So this year I think they know what they're going in there to do, they know what kind of money they're going to be coming out to."
Amber went on: "You do sign up for it yourself, you do know what you're signing up for, no-one's holding a gun to your head."
The 22-year-old star also claimed the life of fame isn't always what it's cracked up to be.
"It looks like we're living the dream but it's really not at times," she admitted. "Jobs are slim for reality stars at the moment. Your life changes completely when you come out."
Amber also addressed speculation she's due to sign up to BBC1 talent show Strictly Come Dancing this autumn, after finding success in the West End with the Dolly Parton musical.

"I've seen this in the media, I'd love to do it but it's definitely not on the table," she confessed.
"Maybe in a couple of years. I'd love to do another musical – or Broadway! I've had more to prove because of the reality side, but the feedback I get from the fans, it's a weight off my shoulders. I'm looking forward for the next job."
