Amy Willerton's got it all – beauty and brains to boot - so it’s no surprise she’s recently bagged herself a dishy American businessman, Rob Gough
Posing up a storm in the scorching hot sun in Ibiza, beautiful model Amy Willerton shows off her incredible beach body – the abs, curves and enviable tan – not to forget that hair! And yep, we’re pretty envious. ‘I’m so happy, it’s a really nice time for me at the moment,’ Amy, 22, tells Now, as she parties with friends DJ Vogue Williams, fellow I’m A Celeb campmate Nadia Forde and new boyfriend Rob Gough, at the Lipsy Spray Party at Ocean Beach. Here, Amy talks for the first time about why Rob’s making her so ‘super-happy’…
You look very happy Amy.
At the moment everything is great. I’m very happy!
How did you meet your new boyfriend Rob?
We met in Vegas. It’s so romantic isn’t it? (laughs). We had our first date at the fake Eiffel Tower after a Calvin Harris concert. He’s amazing.
Was it love at first sight?
We clicked instantly. He shares my zest for life. He’s a cancer survivor, you see, he had bone cancer for two years, so we’re lucky to have him. I’ve always been someone who lives everyday to the max, probably because of my brother Ross – he’s severely disabled and growing up with him made me want to grab every opportunity and go, go, go! Rob’s very appreciative of everything too, he likes to go out and have adventures and so we have a lot of fun together. We are super-happy!
And now you live in California too?!
Yes, it’s a really nice time. I feel like me again… when I first started getting into this media world I felt under pressure from people who told me I needed to do this or that, or they didn’t like the way I dressed. I’m used to being judged because I have done model pageants but when I took my crown and sash off nobody knew who I was and I could get on with my life and I thought that it would be the same but it wasn’t.
Might we be hearing wedding bells soon?!
I’m only 22. I’m a very ‘present’ person, so I live each day as it comes, and enjoy it. We have so much fun every day.
