Amber has been continuously rumoured to be dating a number of people, including her ex-boyfriend Rory Colhoun, and AC Milan and England footballer Fikayo Tomori.

She admitted to The Sun, that she had a fling with Manchester City star Jack Grealish, but was allegedly left heartbroken as it was revealed that he was also dating TV’s Emily Attack at the same time.

Following on from this drama, the reality TV star took to Twitter, writing: "Switching teams was the best decision I made in my life," before adding: "Watching men makes me feel ill. I couldn’t put myself through it again."

Amber later addressed the tweets on a showbiz Access All Areas show on FUBAR Radio, and confirmed that, although an accident, it was how her bisexuality was revealed.

She has since been open about her sexuality with public displays of affection for her new girlfriend Jen Beattie.

She is the daughter of former Scotland and British Lions rugby player, John Beattie, and is the sister of former Scottish rugby union international Johnnie Beattie.

In October 2020, Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer and had surgery to remove the lump, before it had the chance to spread. She also opted to undertake radiotherapy instead of the more aggressive chemotherapy, and despite the treatment, she continued to play for Arsenal and Scotland.

She went on to win the Helen Rollason Award for 2021, in recognition of her work since the cancer diagnosis. This year, she was appointed as a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), in the 2023 New Year Honours for services to association football and charity.
