Love Island star ‘axed’ within hours after Joey Essex enters villa in shocking new twist

The shock dumping is understood to have sent shockwaves through the Love Island villa

Love Island is off to a brutal start after sending one hopeful single packing before they'd had chance to settle in properly.

It turns out there's been a very unexpected dumping but we'll have to wait to find out who.

The twist comes before viewers have been able to get their head around reality TV veteran Joey Essex entering the villa as a celebrity bombshell.

And it turns out that the shock dumping has sent shockwaves through the villa, reminding the Islanders that nobody is truly safe while embarking on the quest for love.

A source told the Sun: "The islanders were all in shock when it happened. They thought Joey coming in was the only twist.

"Nobody was expecting a dumping to happen so soon. The dumped star was gutted they hardly got to spend any time in the villa and feels like they've been cheated of the whole experience.

"There were tears around the firepit. The islanders haven't known each other long but this has sent them reeling.

"It shows that bosses aren't messing around this series and they need to expect the unexpected."

The latest series of Love Island debuted last night at 9.00pm on ITV and viewers have been told to 'expect the unexpected'.

It has also emerged that there has been a huge Hideaway twist.

Couples have been given the green light to go there for some alone time whenever they wish.

In previous seasons, they had to be invited there by producers or nominated by their fellow Islanders.

This promises to turn up the heat and give viewers plenty of drama to sink their teeth into.

Joey Essex opened up about his decision to enter the iconic villa, stating: "I just want someone to like me for me and now from what they see on TV.

"This is exactly why I’m going into the villa because you’re disconnected from the rest of the world and can focus on what actually matters on a far deeper level."

People all over social media have been swooning over Joey's entrance, while others have drawn attention to his jam-packed reality TV record.

One person wrote: "Joey Essex’s agent never stops… he has literally been on every reality show in the UK."

Another one added: "Joey Essex collecting reality tv shows like infinity rings."

Love Island continues tonight at 9.00pm on ITV2.

Tyla approached ITV and they declined to comment.
