Love Island is hit by an explosive double dumping as TWO fan favourites are axed from the villa after a surprise public vote
The Love Island villa was hit by an explosive double dumping on Tuesday night, as both Mehdi Edno and Mal Nicol had been axed from the show.
The pair learned that they would be leaving after a public vote to choose viewers’ favourite boy and girl.
While Mal’s exit was a sad one, Mehdi’s departure left all of the Islanders reeling, particularly Whitney, who he invited to visit him in France.
The episode saw the entire villa asked to gather at the firepit, and they were told the public had been voting for their favourite boy and girl.
Rather than keep the villa in suspense, it was immediately revealed that both Mal and Mehdi had been dumped from the villa, leaving everyone in utter shock.
He’s gone! The Love Island villa was hit by an explosive double dumping on Tuesday night, as both Mehdi Edno (pictured) and Mal were axed from the show
She’s off! Mal’s short-lived stint in the villa came to an end after being the girl to receive the fewest votes, bringing an abrupt end to her romance with Sammy
Emotional: While Mal’s exit was a sad one, Mehdi’s departure left all of the Islanders reeling, particularly Whitney, who he invited to visit him in France
Speaking after his exit, Mehdi said: ‘It’s always a sad feeling when you have to leave somewhere, but that was such a great experience, I’m so thankful for it.
‘I’ve met incredible people, and made friends for life. I feel like I could’ve found love with Whitney, so it’s to be continued on that one.’
Reflecting on his growing connection with Whitney, the hunk added: ‘I’d say it was great. We had ups and downs but if we focus on the ups they were so good.
‘Obviously it’s hard for me to leave now as we had something good going on but I’m hopeful we can make things work, for now she needs to live her experience to the fullest.’
He went onto back Ella and Tyrique as his picks to win the series, given they’ve been a couple since the first day.
Mehdi added: ‘They have been a strong couple since day one – they always make the effort with each other.
‘They are both so genuine and like each other. From inside the Villa it was so beautiful to see and I can’t wait to watch them blossom even more.’
Meanwhile, Mal said: ‘It all feels like a dream! I would say I feel sad, obviously, but I’m so happy that I got to experience it.
Emotional: Whitney broke down in tears upon learning Mehdi would be leaving the villa
Stunned: Catherine struggled to hide her shock as it was revealed that Mehdi was the boy to receive the fewest votes
Sweet: Mal added: ‘It’s not often that you meet someone that you have an instant connection with and have so much in common with like I did with Sammy’
They’re gone! The news of yet another dumping left the entire villa reeling, less than a week after Molly Marsh’s shock exit
‘It’s not often that you meet someone that you have an instant connection with and have so much in common with like I did with Sammy.
‘I do mean it when I say, Sammy was literally the boy version of me. My goodbye was so awkward, but sometimes I put on a front as it’s easier to laugh than cry.
‘I didn’t want him to see me upset and I could see he was upset. He’s there to find a connection and I’m happy if he’s happy.’
‘That connection with Sammy was just so innocent and pure, it was lovely. Short, obviously.
‘From the moment I first met him to the last night, we had a very mature conversation. He’s grown so much.
‘The most amazing thing to see in a person is growth. I could tell by the way he was acting around me. From what I’d seen before, he’s so different. I think before he didn’t really think before he spoke.
‘But it would be so weird if I was crying about Sammy, as I just met him. I met him last week. It would be bizarre if I was crying.
‘I genuinely did really like him and it could have gone somewhere but we’ll never know.’
Earlier in the episode, Kady had another awkward moment with Zach when she mistakenly called him by her ex boyfriend’s name.
The two enjoyed a double date on the new episode alongside Tyrique and Ella but things didn’t exactly go as planned.
Following Tyrique’s decision to be closed off with Ella and Zach less fortunately being rejected by Kady, the boys decided to make breakfast for Ella and Kady.
Admitting they can’t cook, the newly named ‘Zach Ramsay’ and Tyrique’s breakfast got underway as they attempt to make the girls eggs and avocado on toast.
Kady said: ‘Who would have thought, not kissing someone back and then you get breakfast the next day…it actually worked out great.’
Oops! Earlier in the episode, Kady had another awkward moment with Zach on Tuesday’s episode of Love Island
But the feeling didn’t last as Kady mistakenly calls Zach, Scott – her partner from series two.
Zach didn’t miss the gaffe, telling her: ‘My name is Zach, Kady.’
Kady quipped back: ‘Did I say Zach?’ Zachariah replies: ‘No, you said Scott.’
‘Oh my god, I swear, it’s giving me the nostalgic vibes from series two,’ Kady quipped.
Kady coupled up with Scott Thomas after entering the series two villa as a bombshell. The two carried on their romance after the show, but split after one year together.
Love Island continues on Wednesday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
