AMY Hart and Curtis Pritchard are bookies’ favourites to win Love Island after a bedtime snog under the sheets in Thursday’s episode.

Amy, the former Miss United Kingdom from Worthing, along with dancer Curtis Pritchard, shared their first in kiss in the Spanish villa and are now 2/1 to win the ITV show, just five days in.

Amy’s father, funeral director Ian Hart, said: “[Curtis] is the sort of guy I would meet in the Cricketers in Broadwater and have a pint with.

“He seems like a very nice guy but we’re only five days into a 56 day process so I won’t be writing any speeches just yet.”

Speaking about the goodnight kiss, he said: “I was downstairs making the drinks when it was on, Mrs Hart was upstairs watching.

“But I’ve been around the block so I know what goes on, I’ve been on a few 18-30 holidays.”

Ian said the family had a party for the opening episode on Monday, but since then, he has been watching it an hour later.

This is so friends can watch the show and text him the bits he should and shouldn’t watch.

Ian added: “I defy any dad in my situation not to do the same.

“Amy is just being Amy in there so what you see is what you get.

“We would like to thank everybody for their support, the whole family is overwhelmed.”

Amy is one of 12 starting contestants in this year’s dating show set in a Spanish villa.

The show features a group of attractive 20-somethings, who vie for each other’s affections.

Contestants are eliminated if they are not “coupled up”.

Viewers are backing “wholesome” Amy and Curtis after they shared a kiss under the covers.

The next morning, Amy told the other girls in the house: “It was really nice actually and it wasn’t like one of us had to instigate it.

“We sort of knew it was going to happen so it just happened.”

Curtis, the brother of Strictly Come Dancing star AJ Pritchard, also revealed to the boys that they had shared a “cheeky little kiss”

The 23-year-old said he has only ever been in one long-term relationship before.

Love Island fans rushed to Twitter to express their support for the new couple.

One fan said: “Let’s just give Amy and Curtis the money now.”

And Celebrity gossip magazine OK! tweeted: “We’re calling it – Curtis and Amy to win Love Island 2019.”

Love Island, the nightly 9pm program on ITV 2, started on June 3 and runs for eight weeks.

The final is set to air on Monday, July 29.
