Amber Gill won Love Island series five in 2019 with Greg O'Shea.
But despite appearing smitten in the villa, it wasn't long before the relationship was over, with Amber claiming her rugby playing partner savagely dumped her by text just after they split the £50k prize.
Now the 24-year-old says appearing on the show has put a spanner in the works of her dating life.
Amber, who has recently hinted she's open to dating women, said: "Nobody wants to hear about my dating life, with all due respect my dating life is non-existent."
Amber, from Newcastle, added: "I'd say it's worse now than what it was before. People used to comment on us all the time – now they don't.
"I don't think it's about me. But it's good because I don't have time for that anyway. I'm busy working."
Luckily, Amber said she has plenty to concentrate on.
She said: "I'm working on a book deal with Harper Collins, it's about a competition about basically giving underrepresented ethnic minorities the opportunity to have their book published and in return, I'm publishing my own romance novel.
"The first couple of chapters have been written but it doesn't come out until summer next year.
"Then hopefully, my own podcast."
Amber is not the only one who has found it more difficult to meet a significant other since leaving the show.
Joanna Chimonides, who was coupled up with Michael Griffiths on the 2019 series said: "It is harder to meet someone now. I didn't think it would be but it is."

She previously explained the difficulty of dating as a celebrity.
"You can't go on a date with them if they don't want to be photographed," she said.
"You'll end up sitting at home and then there's the pressure to have sex!"
Yewande Biala also finds it difficult to know what men's intentions are with her.
“I had trust issues before I went in, but once I left, it got even harder," she said.
“Normally if you want to meet someone, you go on Tinder, but if someone matches with me, I think it’s because they’ve seen me on TV. I’m so paranoid that now I just don’t put myself in that situation.”
