Love Island’s Amber wins over viewers with impressive geek cred – digitalspy.com

12 July 2019 NEWS

Love Island‘s Amber Gill already has a huge fanbase because she’sunquestionably loyal, hilarious, has lightning-sharp wit and… now we know she has some serious geek cred too.

The 21-year-old beauty therapist thrilled Ringers from Middle-earth and beyond by sharing her love of J.R.R. Tolkien during Friday’s edition of the ITV2 reality show.

Amber was being chatted up byNick Grimshaw lookalike Chris Taylor, when he tried to impress her by sharing that he’s well intoHarry Potter(unlike a certain other Islander).

Chris knew his date was a “cool cat” but was surprised when Amber revealed: “I actually once went to the cinema to watch all threeLord of the Ringsfilms back-to-back for nine hours, becauseThe Hobbitwas coming out, so don’t put that label on me… I’m multi-faceted.”

She also shared that her ideal Disney princess would be Moana, which is pretty amazing!

We didn’t even think it was possible but viewers’ love of Amber just skyrocketed higher than the Magic Castle because of her fun fact:

She also correctly pointed out to Chris that pigs can swim, which he thought was impossible.

Chris seemed impressed by Amber’sLord of the Ringsmega-marathon too, revealing: “I didn’t know that about you. We might have a lot more in common than we thought.”

As long as Chris doesn’t go all Gollum on Amber after the next recoupling, we could definitely get behind these two as a couple! Anything to get Amber’s mind offall the Michael dramafor a while…

Love Islandairs at 9pm on ITV2, and you can catch up on the show via ITV Hub.
