LOVE Island's Amy Hart, 27, has been forced to deny she's dating Heart Dance DJ Toby Anstis, 50.

The reality star from Worthing was reported to have enjoyed a number of dates with the broadcaster, including "a trip to see the Lion King and dinner at Soho House".

But, sources close to the former flight attendant have insisted there's no romantic connection between the pair, adding she's not ready to date again following her relationship with fellow Islander Curtis Pritchard, 24.

An insider told The Sun Online: "Toby is far too old for Amy. He took to the Lion King to say thank you for being on his show as a last minute guest.

"She's not ready to be dating anyone."

The pair were spotted outside the Lyceum Theatre on Saturday and exchanged a friendly hug before they headed inside the venue.

Although they were seen together in a cab after the show.

The Argus:

Appearing on the Heart Dance Breakfast Show on August 26, Amy spoke to Toby about how she would love to appear on this year's I'm A Celebrity.

The ITV2 star has been one of Love Island's big success stories this year after her emotional split from Curtis prompted her to quit the island.

She's given up her job with British Airways following her new-found fame and is already eyeing up her next reality show.

Speaking to Toby about the jungle, she said: "I would love to. I’d absolutely love to.

"I hate rats. I hate rats. That’s the only thing. Like I can deal with the spiders and stuff. I can deal with all the creepy crawlies but it’s the rats. They put me in that coffin with rats."
