Amber Gill says Amy Hart wished her luck for "Loose Women".
The "Love Island" champion - who won the ITV2 dating show this summer alongside Greg O'Shea - has played down reports of a rift with her former villa co-star after it was claimed Amber stole Amy's spot on the daytime TV favourite.
Speaking to Heart.co.uk, she said: "No, Amy actually texted us just before I was on wishing us all the luck. There's definitely not a feud there, definitely not."
The 22-year-old beauty therapist has impressed viewers and bosses alike recently after appearing on the programme as a guest panellist, and she "would love to" take on the role full time.
She added: "You know what? I felt more comfortable on there than what I thought I would as a panellist, so I would love to.
"I had such a good time and I like being able to say my opinion and have my point of view and have different points of view. So, yeah, it was loads of fun."
Appearing on the show last week, Amber confirmed she and Greg are "exclusively dating" after taking home the £50,000 prize - which they will share between them - but the reality TV pair are still taking things slowly because they have only known each other for a few weeks.
She said: "We're exclusively dating, we're not official yet, "Love Island" is such a weird situation, we've only known each other a month."
Last month, Amy, 27, also made her debut on the "Loose Women" panel, and admitted she had been watching the show for 15 years.
She gushed at the time: "I'm so excited, I've been a fan of "Loose Women" since I was 12. It's my birthday tomorrow so this is the best present ever. I can't wait to see the see the ladies next Wednesday."
