Ex-Love Island star Tyne-Lexy Clarson has revealed details about her new television job, six years after she took part in the hit ITV2 dating show.

Tyne-Lexy, 26, appeared on Love Island back in 2017 and entered the Majorcan villa as a bombshell alongside Gabby Allen, but she failed to find a romantic connection and was dumped from the show after one week.

Six years after her reality TV debut, she has returned to screens as part of the cast of ITV sitcom Buffering, which is written by Love Island narrator Iain Stirling and comedian Steve Bugeja.

Tyne-Lexy announced her latest acting gig on Instagram and shared a series of behind the scenes snaps.

"It's absolutely brilliant and it was such as pleasure to be apart of it," the ex-Islander wrote on social media and revealed she's taken on the role of a character called Amber.

In the photos, the actress could be seen filming a scene alongside comedian Iain, 35, with the pair appearing to be sat in a bar.

Tyne-Lexy wore a stunning green dress for the scenes, which featured a plunging neckline and ruching across the middle. She sported a glam make-up look and wore her dark blonde locks in loose curls.

All episodes of the second series of Buffering landed on ITVX on 29 January, following the release of the first season in August 2021.

Tyne-Lexy previously opened up about her life changed after her Love Island stint, describing the weeks after she left the villa as "the highest highs and the lowest lows".

Speaking to OK! in 2022, she said: “The first weeks were a complete whirlwind filled with the highest highs and the lowest lows. I only knew I was going on the show a couple of days before my entrance so I didn’t have an agency set up or anything.

"I was given a list of agencies by ITV on my departure but I just handled it myself. I didn’t want to join a reality agency, because acting was my passion. I didn’t even know how much to charge for an Instagram ad and I didn't know who to ask!"

She continued: "I moved back to my parents' house, where I was before the show. Parcels were constantly showing up at my door filled with free stuff – I got so many clothes that I was on first name basis with the delivery people.

“I was being invited to lots of events too, and I was using the money I earned from Instagram to travel to London and attend them. Now I’m much more selective as I don’t want to be the person known for turning up to the opening of an envelope!"

Buffering is available to stream on the ITV Hub.
