Love Island 2017: Two dumped contestants have got together

Love Island 2017: Shannen.

Two contestants dumped from Love Island 2017 at the weekend have found one another.

Rob Lipsett and Shannen Reilly McGrath joined Love Island last week as part of the show's two villas twist.


They never actually saw each other on the show having been living in the separate villas until they were axed on Sunday night after not coupling up with any of the original Islanders.

But it seems they've since got together on the outside.

"We met in lockdown after we left the show and got along really well," Rob told The Sun newspaper. “We’ve only known each other for two days seeing as she was in the boys villa while I was in the main villa. We said if we were both in the same villa we would have coupled up."

However he insisted there was currently nothing official going on between them, explaining: “We’re not in a relationship as we’ve just met but we are both from Dublin so we will most likely see each other around.”

The pair aren't the only Islanders this year too hook up following the show, with Harley Judge and Tyne-Lexy Clarson also dating.

They were the first to be eliminated from the show this year, both leaving singletons after not being chosen in the early recouplings.


And of course then there are THOSE rumours about Mike and Jess...

Love Island 2017 continues nightly on ITV2.
