The 22-year-old was in the running for last season, but producers decided to hold him back for the new winter series in January.

But eventually, he gave up sports all together to become a full-time model and has racked up a nice 50,000 followers in the process.

‘Dumped’ Love Islander Yewande Biala says Arabella is a 'Liar'

‘Dumped’ Love Islander Yewande Biala says Arabella is a 'Liar'

 

Love Island sweetheart Yewande Biala was dumped from the villa last night after conflicted Danny did the dirty on the scientist and dropped her to couple up with newbie model Arabella Chi.

 

 

But since exiting the Majorcan villa, Yewande has not been shy about her feelings towards the remaining people in the villa. 

After coupling up with 21-year-old model Danny, Yewande believed they had a ‘connection’ and after Danny expressed to her that ‘his head would not be turned’, Yewande felt like there was nothing to worry about.

 

 

And then enters Arabella.

 

After being booted off the show in last night’s re-coupling, Yewande has made her opinions quite clear on the 28-year-old newcomer.

 

 

‘A bombshell coming in, it’s very hard and it’s difficult to know their intention.’

‘I hate it when a bombshell comes in saying, “I want to get to know everyone” because that is a lie.’

 

 

 

‘You know who you’re going for. She knew she wanted Danny. I feel like if he does get to know her, it’s not going to work.’ 

‘There are so many factors – they’re so different, and the age gap. You have to be realistic. He’s just starting his life – he’s only 21. They are in two different phases of their lives. In the villa, it’s very easy to forget.’

 

 

Many Love Islanders were left in tears as they watched their friend make a shock exit out of the villa.

 

The 23-year-old scientist believes she has made friends for life on the reality TV show and each of them have made her time in the villa worthwhile.

 

 

 

‘I didn’t know I would meet such amazing people and I didn’t realise I would fall in love with such amazing people and I have, which is amazing.’

 

Yewande will appear on Love Island Aftersun June 30that 10pm.

Is the Lie detector back?

Due to the duty of care for the Love Islanders, the lie detector will be scrapped for the season 5 return. ITV2’s Angela Rain said ‘We are going to do some tweaks. The Lie detector is one episode and one element of the 57 episodes. It’s not even a big deal in the format of the show. We are often reacting to the narrative of the villa, so we try and be entirely flexible about that.’

How Many Contestants Will There Be?

Last year we saw the most amount of arrivals in the villa. In total, 38 contestants were swapped and changed to find the perfect match so expect a big party of Islanders this year!
