Love Island's Amy Hart has hung up her bikini for a while to dabble in the dramatic arts.

Amy, 26, who used to be an air hostess, was seen strutting into London's Union Theatre on Monday, for day one of rehearsals for a play she is producing.

Looking the part, Amy donned an all-taupe ensemble - a wool dress, matching leather knee-high boots and a long jacket.

Drama queen: It seems Love Island's Amy Hart has hung up her bikini for a while to dabble in the dramatic arts, seen strutting into London's Union Theatre on Monday, for day one of rehearsals for a play she is producing

She added a chocolate trilby hat to the look and wore her strawberry blonde locks loosely falling in waves around her shoulders.

Amy wore natural make-up - a creamy foundation and an autumnal shade of lipstick.

Amy posted to Twitter over the weekend with a throwback snap from last year, captioning it: 'A year ago today I made my West End debut at the Prince of Wales Theatre... today its first day of rehearsals for the first play I'm producing!'

She also shared backstage snaps from the rehearsals, revealing that the play is a revival of Justin Butcher's Scaramouche Jones and will star Shane Richie in the lead role.

The show will be streamed online from 26 March to 11 April from the London theatre, as stage shows are still unable to welcome audiences amid the pandemic.

Shane - who appeared most recently on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! last year - plays the titular role in the one-man drama which centres around a tragic clown, who is set to celebrate his 100th birthday – and die – at midnight on Millennium Eve.

The play sees the character tell his life story. It was first performed in 2001 in Dublin and late actor Pete Postlethwaite made the role famous, reprising it again in 2014.

She was also pictured with the rest of the creative team, and lead star Shane, as they posed on stage.

According to the promo for the play, the drama 'recounts an epic and mesmerising tale of a life shaped by extraordinary misfortunes, from the shores of Trinidad to England by way of slave ships, Italian royalty, and Croatian concentration camps.

'A witness to pivotal moments of the 20th century, Scaramouche finds himself at the dawn of a new millennium, marking his own centenary and preparing for death.'

It is being produced by Thomas Hopkins and Michael Quinn of Ginger Quiff Media.
