Liam Llewellyn has quit 'Love Island'.

The 22-year-old MA student had been taking part in the hit ITV2 dating show - which returned to screens last Monday (06.06.22) - but has reportedly walked away from the Mallorca villa, with “huge” scenes to be played out on Friday night's episode.

A source told The Sun: "The reasons behind it are unknown so viewers will be glued to their screens tonight to find out. Whatever Liam tells the Islanders, there’s nothing like a fire pit announcement for high drama - it has to be something huge!"

During his brief time on the show, Liam was first coupled up with Gemma Owen, 19, - who is the daughter of football legend Michael Owen - but on the second night of the programme, she hastily dumped him for the self-styled 'Italian stallion' Davide, 27, when he arrived as a bombshell on Tuesday.

Liam - who hails from Newport, South Wales and is the son of former rugby star David Llewellyn - initially faced eviction upon finding himself single but his luck seemed to be improving when he went on a date with both Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Afia Tonkmor on Thursday night's edition.

On the show, he told club lounge host Afia: "I like your vibe. You’re just a laugh, a bubbly, outgoing girl and that’s exactly what I want. You’re definitely my type, 100 %.”

Liam was also seen to be flirting with Turkish actress and influencer Ekin-Su from the offset when they met.

She says: “You’ve got really nice eyes, the colour of the sea, almost like you can kind of swim in it and get lost.”

Liam jokes back: “Are you getting a bit lost?”, prompting Ekin-Su to admit: “Maybe I am. Your eyes are just hypnotising me, I love blue eyes.”

'Love Island' airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.

The dating reality show can be seen in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
