Is Roxy Wellard From Tracy Beaker Actually Amber Davies?!

Is Amber Davies Roxy Wellard? The winner of the second series of ITV2’s Love Island has only gone from strength to strength since her time on the show.

Still, fans have raised questions about the dancer and her past after a familiar face was brought to our attention from the Tracy Beaker tv series…

The story of Tracy Beaker and the dumping ground brings back happy memories for the millenials out there and according to an article in OK! magazine, ITV2’s Love Island fans have been asking the internet seriously strange questions about the dancer…

Whilst on a date with Kem Cetinay, a fellow islander, Amber Davies discussed her dream of performing in the West End.

With this in mind, fans have been questioning whether the reality star once acted in the children’s TV series as young Roxy Wellard, given the shocking resemblance between the two…

The facial structure and the slightly prominent ears are the spit of the reality star…

…but it turns out that the feisty Roxy Wellard was played by actress Sophie Borja between 2005 and 2006.

Trying to couple up be like…

Sophie Borja-Edwards is actually a vegan and has never made any appearances on reality TV; she went on to appear in BBC’s medical drama Casualty and has also starred in a couple of films.

Sophie Borja played the role of Roxy Wellard in series 4 of the CBBC show The Story of Tracy BeakerRoxy was the younger half-sibling of Chantal and Rio. She is a bristly character and a troublemaker in the care home.

Before becoming the 2o17 Love Island winner after meeting Kem Cetinay, Amber Davies used to work as an entertainer at a London nightclub called Cirque Le Soir.

Funnily enough, previous Love Island winner Cara De la Hoyde also performed at this club before joining the reality show. Coincidence? We think not!

Meanwhile, Amber has her own profile on Dancers Pro, stating that:

‘I have always been 100% sure I was going to be a performer from a little girl.’

After growing up in the small town of Denbigh in North Wales, Amber always had big dreams of making it as a performer and she most recently starred in a West End production of 9 to 5: The Musical.

The star actually turned down the lead role in musical Hairspray back in 2017 so that she could instead appear as a contestant on Love Island.

Bizarre Theatre Critic Benjy Potter said:

‘Her superb voice and excellent comic timing left the audience stunned and earned her a place alongside seasoned West End pros.’

We still can’t get over how uncanny Sophie Borja and Amber Davies look when they’re put side by side. No wonder fans were getting them mixed up!

We can clear things up, however, when we take a look at the two star’s birth dates. Sophie was born on 23rd September 1993 whereas Amber was born three years later on 4th October 1996.

Only it turns out the pair do share the same birth sign: Libra. This is just too weird!

Maybe at some point, Amber will take on an acting role alongside her doppelgänger and our minds really will be blown…
