Love Island’s Amy Day tested positive for COVID-19 following ‘several nights out after quarantine’, including a reunion dinner with former Islanders last week. 

Amy, 25, enjoyed dinner at STK restaurant in London on August 14 alongside Hugo Hammond, Aaron Francis, Harry Young, Brad McClelland, Georgia Townend, AJ Bunker, Chuggs Wallis, Lillie Haynes, Jack Barlow, Medhy Malanda, Danny Bibby, Sam Jackson and Lucinda Strafford. 

This comes amid claims two other former contestants have also tested positive for the virus since the dinner.

A source exclusively told MailOnline: ‘Following several nights out after quarantine, Amy started to to feel unwell at the beginning of the week and gradually worsened, feeling sick, sore throat and generally run down.’

They added: ‘She did a lateral flow test and followed it up with a PCR test which confirmed she had Covid. Amy had her first vaccination prior to Love Island and was due to have her second one this weekend. She is now in isolation but feeling better.

‘Amy has avoided getting Covid throughout the pandemic so it’s unfortunate to get it now, especially as she had some auditions coming up.’

The Sun reports that a further two islanders have tested positive.     

Despite the group adhering to strict quarantine rules once arriving back in the UK, they were ‘excited to see each other and had been hitting the town’ once their isolation period came to an end.                   

The paper has not specified which other two islanders have tested positive for the virus.

MailOnline has reached out to representatives for all other Love Islanders at the dinner for comment.

The group’s night on the town came after Hugo and Amy clashed in a post-villa chat, with Amy branding Hugo ‘fake’ for ‘friend-zoning’ her shortly after they were booted out of the Love Island villa.

The pair sparked up a romance after meeting in Casa Amor, however their relationship soon fizzled out and upon leaving the villa PE teacher Hugo described his quest for love as ‘tragic’, prompting Amy to pull a shocked expression. 

Sitting opposite Hugo while still in Spain, Amy lambasted Hugo for his behaviour, saying: ‘It’s the Hugo show, that’s all it is,’ and adding: ‘I think we need to clear up a few things because I feel like I had my time wasted a little bit, staying with you.’

The bombshell continued: ‘I thought there was something there. We leave the villa, and you just flipped and friend-zoned me. You’ve come across quite fake now.’

Hugo was quick to fire back: ‘I completely disagree with you on that front,’ with Amy quipping: ‘Course you do.’

Attempting to explain himself, Hugo continued: ‘We had the chat in there about how we had come to a cross road on our journey and I think that was clear to both of us but apparently not.’

Taken aback, Amy responded: ‘I wasn’t part of that conversation. That was massively lost in communication.

‘I never had a conversation with you where it was, ”we would go this way or we would go this way”. It was, ”let’s stop having the pressure on us”.’

At that moment, Hugo started laughing, much to Amy’s dismay.

‘You’re so patronising,’ she said, adding: ‘Why are you laughing? This isn’t funny.’

Love Island and Aftersun host Laura Whitmore later spoke to both Hugo and Amy via videocall, with Hugo berating his former flame for spending the first in Casa Amor in Tyler Cruickshank’s bed and explaining that her actions made him feel as though he was merely a ‘green card into the villa’.

Hugo has taken the opportunity to discuss the ‘tragic’ comment he made with Christine Lampard on Lorraine.

Clearing things up, Hugo explained: ‘That was more of a reflection of my journey in there. Obviously I’d been there for so long.

‘I’d tried it with quite a few girls and then some bombshells came in for me and didn’t work out, so that wasn’t a reflection of Ame’s herself but more a reflection of me and my journey, and what I’d been through in there.’

Oh dear! The pair were coupled up when they were dumped from the Island, and in a post-dumping chat Hugo branded his journey 'tragic' prompting Amy to pull a face
