The first couple to leave Love Island 2018 in tonight’s results have spoken out.
Charlie & Hayley and Alex & Samira were put up for the public vote on Thursday after each of the couples nominated two other pairs in private.
In Friday evening’s show, host Caroline Flack dropped in to reveal the twist – and the results of the public vote.
With the most votes from viewers to stay in the villa, Alex and Samira were saved meaning it was Charlie and Hayley who left in the Love Island results.
Reacting to the news, Charlie said: “I am gutted about leaving the villa, I would love to still be in there with the boys. I do feel a bit hard done by in that sense, I don’t feel it was my time to go at all I feel like I just got unlucky and invested my time wrong.
“I can understand why the Islanders voted me and Hayley as less compatible because obviously we weren’t compatible. She is not compatible. I feel like I am a compatible person. I wanted someone to be with me but she wasn’t ready for that I don’t think. The same thing happened with Eyal.
“Knowing what I know now, 100 per cent I would have looked elsewhere but I wouldn’t have done anything differently because I did fancy her. I was trying to crack on with Hayley but I don’t feel like I was getting anything back.”
Hayley added: “It’s obviously not nice being the first couple dumped from the Island but to be honest, I feel okay because I know it’s not the end of the journey. I’m excited to see what’s going to come.”
Meanwhile, Charlie accused Hayley of playing a game.
He said: “I wouldn’t have gone for Hayley if I would have known she was playing a game. I still fancied her, she is an attractive girl. If we were doing the recoupling again, I would have liked Megan or Georgia to pick me or Rosie. We all fancied each other.”
But Hayley insisted: “I went in there and I was true to myself and my feelings and I wasn’t going to fake my feelings to stay in there. I took risks.”
Love Island 2018 continues nightly on ITV2 at 9PM.
