The Island went all Big Brother last night out of completely nowhere. But despite this, one of the contestants found themselves being voted off.

For the first time on Bear Grylls's Channel 4 show, the islanders came together to vote for whether or not to remove 50-year-old cameraman Phil Coates.

After six voted in favour of him to leave, Phil was told to leave and never come back. Phil hadn't exactly made himself an indispensable member of camp, but did he actually deserve this treatment?

Viewers were not best pleased with Phil's treatment, after Jane called a meeting and put together a plan to get rid of Phil once and for all.

Phil's crimes? Getting his willy out for a skinny dip, having another argument over the camp fire, 'chopping his finger off' and spending the day sleeping on the beach.

But what do you think? Do you think the campmates went too far with this one? Or did Phil deserve his marching orders? Let us know in the poll below:

The Island continues next Monday at 9pm on Channel 4.
