It’s said that the Geordie beauty, who won the show last year alongside now-ex boyfriend Greg O’Shea, has been on a string of dates with Chelsea and England footballer Fikayo Tomori.
The pair had already been linked earlier this week thanks to a suggestive comment Amber left on one of his Instagram posts.
But now it’s said that their romance is much more than just a bit of online flirting.
A source close to Amber told The Sun: “They’ve been on two dates in as many weeks in London.
“He’s even met her really good friends, so that tells you how serious she’s taking it. They’ve been chatting for quite a while now but only recently met properly.
“They are both really busy and she doesn’t go on many dates, so it’s a really good sign.”
The insider added that the fact Amber posted a flirty comment on his Instagram is also a very good sign that she’s very into him, as she doesn’t usually show her feelings so quickly.
Amber has been single since her split from Greg, who she says savagely dumped her over text message.
They broke up five months ago, not long after winning the show together.
He came into the ITV2 dating show as a late arrival, mending her heartbreak after she was dumped by Michael Griffiths, who chose another girl over her during the Casa Amor twist.
Fikayo is a regular in Chelsea’s first time this season. He landed the spot after impressing bosses while he was on loan at Derby during the 2018/19 campaign.
The defender first played for England last November in the Euro 2020 qualifiers which saw the team win 4-0 against Kosovo.
Amber, who moved to London after her split from Greg, previously said she had no time for dating.
“I haven’t got time for it,” she remarked. “And I don’t want to take the shine off what I’m doing because it really is an amazing opportunity.”
Amber’s fans had been hoping to see her couple up with fellow Islander Ovie Soko, but they have insisted all along that they’re just friends.
Mirror Online has contacted Amber’s representatives for comment.
