Amber Gill has addressed questions around her sexuality after she declared she was 'switching teams' in a series of viral tweets last month.

In the series of tweets in question, Amber wrote: 'Switching teams was the best decision I made in my life,' adding in a separate tweet while watching this year's series of Love Island:

'Watching men makes me feel ill. I couldn't put myself through it again.'

When asked by Stephen Leng if this was her coming out, the 24-year-old responded saying: 'Accidentally, I remember looking at it [the tweet] and thinking sh**t, what have I said.'

She went on to say 'Like a lot of my friends were like if you were gonna do it any way, that's the typical way that you would do that.'

'Normally people have these lovely, beautiful stories and lovely, beautiful real Instagram posts, like just lush. I've put switching teams on a tweet and that's how I came out.'

In the interview the star was also asked if she has a lady in her life, she quickly responded saying 'I don't, not right now' but said that she was 'open to it' and 'didn't have a type' when it came to dating women.

She also admitted that she's found dating challenging since appearing on the ITV reality show: 'I find it really difficult, and I can't like I really don't know like, the reason behind it.'

'But I just, yeah, I'm very picky now. And like, very like attuned to what I like and what I don't like so I don't know if it's that's part of the reason.'

The Love Island winner, who has recently released her first romance novel, went on to reveal her biggest icks on a first date: 'I cannot stand people that are rude to waiters, people that are helping. Anything like that. I can't stand it.'

She continued: 'I would hate if someone is on Inwstagram too much, like wanting to take pictures of everything. This is for a guy though I don't have that many icks when it comes to girls, but for guys, I'm way harsher.'

In the series of tweets in question, Amber wrote: 'Switching teams was the best decision I made in my life. 

'Watching men makes me feel ill. I couldn't put myself through it again.'

Amber also responded to a follower that replied to her saying: 'Me and my gf were saying just yesterday that we predict you'll end up settling down with a woman.'

The reality personality wrote: 'That's cute. Tell me why.'

The fan wrote: 'Because you seem to be very disenchanted by men these days, and we feel like a woman (the right woman) is more likely to appreciate you for all your complexities and inner fire. 

'And treat you with the level of care/sensitivity that you deserve.'

Clearly touched by the message, Amber wrote: 'Now I'm crying.' 

Many of Amber's fans reacted to the tweet, with one writing: 'Is this the best news for all?! [rainbow emoji]'

Amber, who won Love Island in 2018, previously suggested she was open to dating women after admitting that she was attracted to them.
