Love island 2019: Michael Griffiths breaks his silence after leaving the villa

Michael chats to the boys.

Michael Griffiths has broken his silence after leaving Love Island 2019 on Sunday night.

It was Michael and Francesca Allen who left Love Island tonight after a public vote put three couples in danger.


Alongside Michael & Francesca, those in the danger zone were Chris & Harley and Anna & Jordan. The saved islanders then have to decide, in their couples, on one couple to keep in the villa.

All of the couples voted for Anna and Jordan, bar Ovie and India who decide upon Chris and Harley. With no votes, Michael and Francesca left.

Speaking after his exit this weekend, Michael said: "It’s been the most amazing experience of my life. I’ve made tremendous friends who I would now consider family. The people in there have been the easiest people to get along with, and at the same time the toughest.

"They have helped me through certain situations when I’ve been at a low point and also been understanding of when I’ve made decisions that were right for me."

Despite the ups and downs in the villa, Michael insisted: "I would never change any of the couplings I was in. Yewande helped me realise what a nice girl she was and we got on really well as time went on. I wouldn’t change anything with Amber and Joanna.

"I wanted to couple up with Joanna as the interest was there. And ending things in a couple with Francesca – I never realised how funny she was until that recoupling."


On Amber's current coupling with Greg, Michael admitted: "I did say I didn’t see Amber and Greg lasting but having spoken to her since I have seen more of them and seen how nice he is.

"Any conversation I’ve had with him has been really sweet and he has been so respectful about the situation. I said she needs to get to know him and give him a chance. Having seen them together more I see it working. He makes her smile and makes her laugh and she hasn’t instantly put her walls up with him. When I see him make her smile, it makes me smile."

Reflecting on his decisions over the past few weeks, Michael continued: "Everybody makes mistakes. Personal mistakes no. Everything I did was for me, but did I go about things in the right way? Not all the time.

"But I have reconciled things with Amber and at the end of the day I’m only human. People make mistakes. I always said to Amber I never wanted to hurt her."

And on Joanna, Michael revealed: "I’m going to try and talk to Joanna but I know that she’ll have seen what’s gone on and I hope she understands I needed to make up to Amber. There was always going to be a natural draw between me and Amber because of how friendly we were.

"I did think about Joanna every day that she wasn’t there. She was always on my mind and I will try to speak to her."


Michael appears on Love Island: Aftersun on Sunday 21st July at 10pm on ITV2.

Love Island continues nightly at 9PM on ITV2.
