Two Love Islanders have been booted out of the villa just days ahead of the final, where we'll see one couple crowned the winners.
Just hours after the remaining Love Island contestants took part in the Graftie Awards, they were told that one couple would be getting sent home. Ouch.
Speaking to the Sun, an insider claimed: “No one was expecting the result of the dumping. There was a lot of very shocked faces.
“It was one of the most dramatic dumpings yet and there were lots of tears.
“The man in the couple was pretty angry about being sent home, before accepting his fate, while the woman cried her eyes out.”
Tyla has reached out to ITV for comment.
But this isn’t the first brutal twist we’ve seen across this season of the hit show - last week, the Islanders were left reeling after four of them were sent packing in a shock dumping.
The gang were lulled into a false sense of security when they found out they were being treated to an ‘exclusive party’, having been whisked off to a beach club where they enjoyed a live performance from Rita Ora - but then were left gobsmacked after host Maya Jama turned up and revealed that four contestants would be going home.
On last night’s episode, we saw dramatic scenes break after after things got a bit heated between Lochan Nowacki and Tyrique Hyde following the award ceremony.
The duo clashed after Tyrique accused Lochan of gossiping to his partner Whitney Adebayo.
After seeing a clip of Lochlan talking about Abi Moores and Scott Van-Der-Sluis connection behind their backs, Tyrique hit out: "Lochan be pillow-talking with his girl too much."
Defending himself, Lochan fired back: "His points are irrelevant. He's piping up for no reason."
However, Tyrique showed no signs of backing down, telling Lochan: "Don't say what I'm saying is irrelevant because it ain't irrelevant."
To which Lochan bluntly replied: "That's fine then. You're built like that - men are built different."
Despite accusations of being a gossip, it seems Lochan is still a hit with fans as he and partner Whitney are the current favourites to win this series, with Betfair placing them at 8/13.
Tyrique and Ella Thomas are in second place with odds of 23/10, while Sammy Root and Jess Harding are at 9/2.
Whoever you’ve got your fingers crossed for, there’s not too long to wait, with the show set to wrap up next Monday (31 July).
