Love Island's Craig Lawson would love Camilla Thurlow to be his wife

Love Island: Camilla and Craig

Dumped Love Island contestant Craig Lawson wants Camilla Thurlow to be his wife.

Craig enjoyed a brief time coupled up with Camilla on Love Island this summer, before getting the boot from the island last week.

While Camilla had seemingly ruled out taking things any further with Craig in the villa, he is keen for their possible romance to continue on the outside.

"Me and Camilla made plans to meet up outside of the show and I’d even love to have Camilla just as a friend," he said, “But it would be a shame if there wasn’t any romance.

“I’d love to get to know her more as a person. I feel the same about her now as I did when I went into the show, if not even more."

Speaking to the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper, Craig added: “She’s the ultimate wife. I suppose I’ll have to wait and see when she’s out.

“What’s not to love about Camilla? She was my favourite, just like she was for everyone else.”

Although since his exit, Camilla has moved on to Jamie Jewitt, Craig still feels as though he had a "connection" with her.

“I liked her just like the nation did. I know that it came across as strong," he explained. “I was a fan of Camilla before I went in and after meeting her I’m an even bigger fan.

“I was one of the people who felt for her in the Jonny situation and wanted to be a shoulder for her to cry on and wanted to protect her. When I got to know her she was even better in person.”

Love Island 2017 continues nightly on ITV2.
