She has landed the role of a lifetime in Dolly Parton’s musical 9 To 5.

And Love Island’s Amber Davies, 22, smiles and laughs alongside the iconic country singer herself in a new TV series that shows the behind-the-scenes preparations that went into the musical.

Having previously trained in musical theatre before appearing on the ITV reality show, Amber has returned to her first love in the musical.

In scenes to air on Amber and Dolly: 9 To 5 on ITVBe, the reality star travels to Nashville, Tennessee, to meet Dolly and prepare for her role in the musical.

The brunette can be seen in a mustard dress and black belt as she poses for a selfie alongside the Jolene singer, who sported a white, bejeweled jacket and a black long-sleeved top.

The one-off special will also feature appearances from Amber’s co-stars Louise Redknapp and Brian Conley.

The recent 9 To 5 gala night proved a huge triumph for many, as Dolly herself was also in attendance and gave a speech following the show’s closing number.

The musical is based on the iconic 1980 film of the same name, which starred Dolly, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, and also features the iconic song that featured in the film.

On Monday’s edition of Good Morning Britain, Dolly detailed her ‘wonderful’ experience filming the movie.

She said: ‘I think it turned out wonderful, I’m so proud of the cast! It was so wonderful to see all of my songs come to life.’
