‘I don’t want to be thought of as a sex symbol. Oh, God, no! I don’t want to be that because there’s more to my personality than that.’
Amber insisted that she has a lot more to offer than just her looks and doesn’t want people jumping to conclusions based on her appearance or stint on the reality show.
She added: ‘I would roll my eyes if someone came up to me in a pub or club and started going on about how gorgeous I was, rather than engaging me in a proper conversation.’

Amber won the hit reality TV show and £50,000 prize money last year with Irish rugby player, Greg.
The couple met towards the end of the show after she was sidelined by her previous love interest, Michael Griffiths, who began dating Casa Amour newcomer, Joanna Chimonides. They have since split.
Greg appeared to be a true gentleman and a breath of fresh air for Amber which made him an instant fan favourite, but their romance was short-lived as he decided to dump her over the phone just weeks after winning the competition.
