Love Island's Joanna praises Amber Gill for Michael snub

Share article:

Joanna Chimonides has praised her "Love Island" love rival Amber Gill for snubbing Michael Griffiths during Friday's (19.07.19) recoupling.

Amber chose new boy Greg O'Shea, despite her ex Michael - who dumped her for Joanna before Joanna was evicted from the villa - claiming he still has feelings for her and Joanna took to Instagram to share her reaction.

Joanna said: ""I am actually really proud of her, I'm not going to lie.

"That was probably one of the hardest decisions that she was going to have to make and she did so well. Good on her!"

Amber was torn about who to partner up with after the firefighter declared he still had feelings for her but ultimately decided to choose the rugby player because he makes her happy.

She said: "I've got one boy we've had history, we've had ups and downs but I can't deny there's a connection there and then I've got another guy that's come in and put a smile back on my face when I've been miserable.

"I didn't shut him down after five minutes which was a good sign! It's been hard for me to handle and it's hard to choose whether to go with your heart or your head. Or whether you should go for a mixture of both, it's been hard."

Speaking to Greg after the recoupling, Amber said: "It was really hard ... but if I'm genuinely honest I wouldn't accept it on the outside so why would I accept it in here."

Although Michael was devastated that Amber didn't pick him, he told his friend Anton Danyluk that he's not worried because the recoupling "doesn't mean anything."

He said: "I knew it was going to happen ... It doesn't mean anything the fact they're coupled up. I'm not going to sit back and say I don't have feelings for Amber when I do.

"I might have f**ked things up on the outside [with Joanna] and I might have f**ked things on the inside [with Amber] but I got everything off my chest."

Amber was left heartbroken a few weeks ago when she came back from Casa Amor to find out that Michael had dumped her for Joanna.

He's continuously claimed he has no feelings for Amber and could only see a future with Joanna, but refused to leave the villa when the social media influencer was kicked out earlier this week - even though he said he'd "found" what he was looking for in her.

Hours after Joanna left, Michael pulled Amber aside and told her he still liked her.

But it coincidentally came after she returned from a date with Greg.
