Love Island’s Kem and Amber get mixed reviews for GMB presenting debut

Love Island winners Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies hit back at their critics as they made their presenting debut on Good Morning Britain.

The duo, who won the ITV2 dating reality show in July, joined Richard Madeley and Ranvir Singh as the programme’s showbiz correspondents, standing in for Richard Arnold.

During their hosting debut – which saw them read out the latest showbiz headlines – Cetinay also accidentally mentioned that they were reading from an autocue.

As the couple returned for their second screen stint on the early morning programme, Cetinay revealed their first outing an hour earlier had been criticised online.

He told Madeley and Singh: “Both of us are getting a little bit of stick. We’re giving it a go. Give us a break guys.”

Davies said they were trying their “best”.

Madeley asked what people were “attacking” them for, and Cetinay said: “People are saying we don’t know what we’re doing, we’re not very good at it, but we’re trying.”

Madeley, who is a stand-in presenter while Good Morning Britain regulars Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid are on their summer breaks, defended the Love Island pair.

“Guys, you try coming on here on live television and linking into six different clips and not talking over each other, you did really well,” he said.

Cetinay said: “It’s not like we all have an autocue at home, you know what I mean?”

Quickly rushing to quiet him, Singh said: “Shhh, you’re not meant to say that on here.”

Madeley joked: “Auto what?”

Viewers were divided over Cetinay and Davies’ hosting skills, with some praising them for their efforts as newcomers.

One wrote on Twitter: “Hats off to Kem and Amber. Did better than I’d ever be able too do! #gmb not the best but it’s not their actual jobs!”

“Its hard presenting solo and theyre doing it as a double act so fp to em, they aint gona be great but they can learn kem n amber,” another said.

But for others, their “awkward” efforts left a lot to be desired.

One viewer wrote: “Kem and Amber are not natural presenters. It’s awkward @GMB.”

Another said: “Are Kem and Amber on work experience? Jesus Christ. Please get them off. #GMB.”

A fan of the couple said: “I love Kem and amber but please stick to doing appearances not presenting, I have to watch gmb on mute and subtitles.”

Cetinay and Davies will appear on ITV’s Good Morning Britain for the rest of the week.
