Mike Thalassitis has ruled out getting with Olivia Attwood on Love Island 2017.

Mike returned to the villa in tonight's show alongside Sam Gowland after the pair were voted back into the show by viewers.


The duo made their entrance at the end of the latest episode with all the drama from their return set to air in Thursday night's show.

But before that, here's what Mike had to say about entering...

Love Island 2017: Mike and Olivia

How does it feel to be returning to the villa?
I always hoped, but I never in a million years thought it would happen.

Who are you most looking forward to seeing again – or not?
Obviously Marcel, I think he is the only one in there who I got on with before. Montana as well. But I’m mostly looking forward to seeing the two new girls, Tyla and Georgia. I am not looking forward to seeing Kem, Chris or Olivia but it doesn’t phase me.

Last time you were involved in a love triangle with Chris and Olivia – how do you feel about that now? Will you try it on again with Olivia or do you have your eyes on someone new?
Olivia will never get near me again, trust me. She and Chris are suited, she got on well with him in there, a lot better than she did with me, we’re just different. We tried to give it a go and it didn’t work.

The day I came out, I got myself out of the triangle, she told me she liked Chris more so I thought, “You crack on.” Then I was voted out that same night. No hard feelings towards them.

I’ve got my eye on Tyla and then Georgia.


How do you think the Islanders are going to feel to see you again?
I think they are going to look like they’ve seen a ghost but I think it’ll be very fun to put me in there and see what happens - they’ll never expect it in a million years. It’ll ruffle some feathers, even more than the first time.


What are you most looking forward to about going back in?
I was truly gutted when I came out last time, but I’m just looking forward to the opportunity to experience it again. Being in that villa is crazy, it’s a bubble and there’s no feeling like it so I’m looking forward to it.

Love Island 2017 airs nightly on ITV2.
