Amber Davies talks split from Kem Cetinay: “I used alcohol as a coping mechanism”
Love Island winner Amber Davies has confessed she turned to drink after her split from Kem Cetinay.
The pair of reality stars announced their split in December after meeting on the ITV2 series last summer, and now Amber has opened up about the break-up.
Appearing on today’s Lorraine, Amber admitted to partying too much after the relationship ended.
She said: “I definitely used alcohol as a coping mechanism for the heartbreak.
“You know you drink, drink, drink, you let your hair down and have fun but I took about four steps back when I should have just powered through.”
However, Amber hasn’t completely ruled out a reunion further down the line.
“I’m not ruling anything out for the future,” she said. “We both need to concentrate on our careers.
“We both – well I need to grow up a bit before I commit to anything too serious.
“But I’ll always have a place in my heart for him.”
Amber also revealed she had watched Kem’s first performance on Dancing on Ice last Sunday and was backing him to do well.
She said: “I was probably more nervous than he was, I was like ‘Kem please don’t fall’ but I thought he was brilliant. I was so impressed.”
Lorraine airs weekdays at 8:30am on ITV.
