Cornwall's Ollie quits Love Island after three days

Cornwall's Ollie quits Love Island after three days

Published by Emma Carton at 4:41pm 14th January 2020. (Updated at 9:00am 15th January 2020)

The Love Island contestant from Cornwall has quit the hit dating show, just days into the new winter series.

Ollie Williams reportedly made the decision to leave the villa whilst being coupled up with Paige Turley.

According to Sky News, a show spokesperson said the 23-year-old realised he still had feelings for his ex-girlfriend.

The decision comes amid calls for him to be axed, following claims he has been involved in 'trophy hunting'.

Ollie is apparently due to explain his reasons for leaving from the show's beach hut, by saying:

"I have to be honest with myself, and everyone, that I do still love someone else… I have to follow my heart in this scenario and it would be wrong for me to ignore these feelings.

"At the end of the day, this is Love Island and it's about finding love.

"If I carried on anything with Paige, or any other girl that might come into the villa, it wouldn't be fair on them".

However in a scathing tweet after the news broke on Tuesday, a former contestant said she was not convinced!

Replying to another post on Twitter, Olivia Attwood said she did not believe Ollie had left because of feelings for his ex.

"If you believe that is the real reason he left the villa then you probably believe in Father Christmas".
