Love Island 2016: Zara Holland has QUIT the villa

Love Island 2016 Zara

Zara Holland has QUIT the Love Island 2016 villa, ITV2 have revealed.

It follows her losing the Miss Great Britain title last week which show bosses informed her of on Friday.

In scenes set to air in tonight's show, Zara is seen sobbing as she tells the other Islanders about losing her crown after getting intimate in the hideaway with Alex.

However ITV2 say that Zara's decision to leave is NOTHING to do with all that drama.

Rather, a member of Zara's family has sadly been taken ill over the weekend.

A spokesperson for ITV2 said: "Owing to an illness in the family, Zara Holland has left the Love Island villa to return to the UK.

"Our thoughts are with her and her family and we send all of our best wishes."

Zara herself said: "I'm so sad to leave the villa but it's important for me to get home and spend time with my mum while she gets better.

"I've had the time of my life on Love Island and would like to thank all of my fellow Islanders and the production team for all their support."

A close member of Zara's family was taken ill suddenly and she was informed of the news yesterday (Saturday).

A spokesperson for the show explained that in light of the nature of her departure, they would leave the door open for Zara to return should she wish to depending on circumstances in the villa.

Love Island 2016 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
