Ollie Williams has quit Love Island after just three days, it has been confirmed.
The 23-year-old decided to walk from the villa after he realised he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend Laura Nofer, who he dated for 18 months before splitting last year.
“The show made Ollie realise he wasn’t ready to be in another serious relationship and he still has really strong feelings for Laura,” a source told The Sun. “Meeting girls who were so different to him and his background only clarified how he felt about his ex and he felt it was only fair to leave the competition and sort his head out.”
Ollie was coupled up with Scottish student Paige Turle but a preview of tonight’s show reveals some drama between the pair after he confessed feelings for a rival girl.
With all that said, Ollie’s time on the show was not without controversy. Before entering the villa, he was exposed as a game hunter who posed with dead animals he killed in Africa. Photos were revealed by The Sun and over 35,000 people signed an online petition to get him kicked off the show.
Love Island airs nightly at 9 pm on ITV 2.
