Pierce Brosnan has ignited a debate after calling for "men to get out of the way" so a woman can play the famed spy.

Pierce Brosnan is calling for a woman to succeed the role of James Bond after Daniel Craig hangs up his suit as 007 when the final movie No Time To Die is released next year.

The 66-year-old actor, who played the martini-loving spy in five movies from 1995 to 2002, including Die Another Day and Tomorrow Never Dies, says the prospect of a female Bond is "exciting".

Asked if a female should replace Daniel Craig, he said: "Yes! I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there.

“I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting.”

Daniel Craig is set to retire from his role as James Bond after the next sequel.

The winners of this year's Love Island are the latest couple to split, making them the fastest ever show winners to part ways.

Amber Gill is reportedly 'devastated' after her boyfriend Greg O'Shea dumped her by text message just 39 days after they first got together.

According to The Sun newspaper, Greg had used their busy careers as the reason to split, with Amber blindsided as she was due to fly to Ireland to stay with him this weekend.

The insider revealed: "Amber feels used by Greg. He was always aware of the distance and his career in their relationship, and yet he chose to seek out Amber in the villa knowing there would always be the distance.

"Amber is devastated, she thought he was a lovely guy, but he's made his feelings clear over text, which isn't very sensitive.

"She had a feeling he was going to make the decision to end things but only because she'd been hearing things - he hadn't the decency to tell her himself."

The Irish rugby player won over the hearts of viewers when he appeared to save Amber from heartbreak after she was brutally dumped by fellow islander Michael following his return from Casa Amor.

Amber and Greg went on to beat villa favourites, Tommy Fury and Molly Mae to take on the £50,000 cash prize despite having only dated for two weeks in the villa.

The reports comes after the couple reunited over FaceTime following speculation of a split from fans who questioned why they hadn't been seen together since her trip to Ireland last month.

Amber and Greg are yet to comment on the reports.

Yewande Biala believes Curtis Pritchard has been playing a game after he was dumped by Amy on last night's show.

Axed Love Island contestant Yewande has spoken out after Curtis Pritchard sensationally revealed he had been 'lying' to Amy 'from the start' about his true feelings.

When host Susanna Reid asked if people genuinely enter the show to find love, Yewande replied: "I think some people are really genuine and some people have a game plan."

Curtis, who is the younger brother of Strictly Come Dancing's AJ Pritchard, had been a favourite to win the show after coupling up with contestant Amy in week one.

The pair appeared to be the strongest couple in the villa, with Curtis even calling her his 'half-girlfriend', but his head was turned after meeting newcomer Jourdan Riane while Amy was over at villa Casa Amor.
