Liam Llewellyn's father flew to Majorca to comfort his son after his dramatic 'Love Island' exit.

Viewers on Friday's (10.06.22) show saw Liam, 22, explain to his fellow contestants why he was leaving the villa and Liam's dad David got straight on a flight to provide support for his son.

A source told The Sun: "Liam's confidence was totally knocked when he lost Gemma [Owen] so when he then also didn’t manage to catch Ekin-Su [Cülcüloğlu] or Afia’s [Tonkmor] eye he started to totally overthink everything he did.

“He just began to worry about everything and then felt guilty that he wasn’t enjoying the whole experience like he felt he was meant to, so called it quits.

“At this point Liam feels really upset. His dad David flew straight out to Majorca to be with him.”

Liam previously admitted his greatest fear on the show was being rejected.

He said: "Something I am most nervous about is probably the feeling of not being wanted , in a recoupling or something, not being picked.

“Everyone wants to be wanted, and wants to be picked.

“So it’s the feeling of not being picked that is a nerve-wracking thought for me.

“It puts you in a vulnerable position and that’s in front of the whole world.

“I think that’s a position I don’t think anyone would want to find themselves in.”

‘Love Island: Unseen Bits’ airs Saturday night (11.06.22) at 9pm, with new episodes of ‘Love Island’ broadcast every night at 9pm except Saturdays on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
