"I had loads of meetings with the execs, the series editor, and professional physiologists but after a couple of days of feeling the way I did, I made the decision on my own behalf that it wasn't right for me to carry on."

During his time on the series, Liam was partnered up with Gemma Owen, who is still in the villa and coupled up with Luca Bish. Unfortunately for the Welsh Islander, his feelings towards Gemma were unrequited.

When he exited the series, Liam summoned his fellow contestants to the fire pit and explained: "Obviously we all came here for the same sort of reason, but I haven't been giving 100% Liam. I know what 100% Liam is and I'm miles off that.

"Trying to find someone you leave the villa with that you love, that's the goal. But when you're not feeling that, it makes it a very hard sort of time to find that. I've been thinking long and hard, it isn't spur of the moment, so I've made a decision I'm going to leave the villa."

Liam's decision would mark the first of two Islanders who chose to leave the show of their own accord this year. Jacques O'Neill left Love Island after he returned from Casa Amor. Since leaving the show, Jacques has been outspoken on its impact on his mental health. You can read more about his exit here.
