Love Island star reveals least genuine couplesITV

Former Love Island star Martin Akinola has revealed which couples he thinks are the least genuine in the villa.

Martin, who joined this year's Love Island as a Casa Amor bombshell, was dumped from the island on Friday (February 24) after an eventful few days with Tanya.

During their time in Casa Amor, Tanya and Martin grew close, and Tanya eventually recoupled with Martin, bringing him back to the main villa leaving her former partner Shaq alone and heartbroken.

Things didn't last between the pair and Tanya, after stealing a secret kiss from Shaq, eventually recoupled with her old flame sending Martin packing.

When asked who he thinks isn't genuine out of all the couples on the show, Martin named Claudia and Casey and Tanya and Shaq, saying he doesn't think they will stay together once the show finishes.

"If I was a gambling man, I don’t think Claudia and Casey or Shaq and Tanya would work on the outside."

Recalling his own fling with Tanya, Martin said that Tanya is unlikely to remain faithful to Shaq once the cameras have stopped rolling.

"Shaq and Tanya because so much has happened, especially with Tanya," he said. "On the outside there are going to be more and more tests. On the outside, there’ll be more and more temptations."

Giving his reasons for choosing Claudia and Casey, Martin said: "Claudia and Casey because they give me friend vibes, I think they are more suited to friends. They don’t really give me couple vibes."

However, when quizzed on who he thinks are the most genuine couples, Martin said: "I would say Kai and Sanam. Or Will and Jessie. Maxwell and Olivia are fairly strong but not as strong as the rest of the couples."
