Niall’s fellow Islanders are informed by Dr Alex, who announces: “For personal reasons unfortunately he can’t continue or come back to the Villa.”
Reacting to his departure in the Beach Hut, Georgia says: “Obviously I was coupled up with him so obviously I came closer to him than most people in here but it wasn’t just that. He was actually my friend, my buddy.”
And Alex adds: “I’m obviously sad that Niall’s left the Villa. We got on really, really well. He’s such a great guy. And I look forward to catching up with him and having some fun with him outside.”
The 23-year-old construction worker from Coventry was one of the first Islanders in this year’s show, first coupling up with Kendall before pairing with Georgia.
