Love Island bosses axe ‘several’ islanders in brutal dumping following Uma and Wil’s shock exit

Love Island bosses axe ‘several’ islanders in brutal dumping following Uma and Wil’s shock exit

ITV producers reportedly have several other plot twists in store on tonight's episode of Love Island

Following last night's bombshell episode - which saw Wil Anderson dumped in a shock recoupling, and his partner Uma Jammeh follow him out - viewers are set to see even more plot twists unfold tonight.

Apparently, producers have a 'mass cull' planned, in which 'several' stars will be axed from the show.

Currently on the show, viewers have been watching 17 Love Island couples cracking on, seven of which consider themselves to be 'single'.

During last night's episode, as well as seeing Wil and Uma dumped, we saw Emma and Grace call things off with their fellas Konnor and Blade, and Hugo expressed his doubts about his relationship with Jess.

As a result, ITV producers are reportedly set to ditch numerous contestants during tonight's episode.

According to The Sun: "Logistically there are too many people in that villa right now, but in terms of the flow of the show the sheer amount of singles is a big no-no.

"The central premise of the show is to remain on Love Island, you have to be in a couple. Bosses staged a mega cull and it shook things up."

During last night's episode - prior to the controversial double exit - the show's narrator Iain Stirling was even heard making a joke about the sheer mass of islanders taking up the bench surrounding the firepit, joking that it was only intended to seat 10.

At the end of the episode, viewers were then invited to vote to save their favourite girl and their favourite boy, implying that a handful of the stragglers will be ditched tonight.

The news comes after viewers were blown away to see fan-favourite Uma's premature departure, after she was selected by Reuben during last night's recoupling, and her parter Wil was sent packing.

Following a rocky period for the duo - triggered by Wil's controversial lip-locking antics during Casa Amor, which were exposed during Sunday's night 'Movie Night' - the pair finally looked as though they were getting back on track earlier this week.

Sadly, however, Uma was subsequently dragged away on date with a duo of new fellas, including Reuben Collins, who sparked a particular interest in her.

Before we had the chance to observe the drama unfolding, however, a shock announcement made by the MailOnline yesterday, which reported that Uma had left the villa after Wil was dumped.

Speaking of her reasoning, a source told the publication: "She knew at this last stage in the competition that she wasn't going to develop feelings for anyone else and she couldn't see Wil leave on his own."
