After Brad McClelland and Lucinda Strafford were received the lowest number of votes from the public who voted for 'most compatible couple', they were dealt another shocking blow after it was revealed they had to decide amongst the two of them who would be dumped from the Love Island villa.
Original Islander Brad decided to dump himself from the villa in Wednesday's episode, leaving Lucinda behind for to embark on "other opportunities."
"Are you sure? Oh my God," the 24-year-old said to him, before asking: "Do you not think we should go together?"
She added: "Should I stay and see where it takes me? I'm just numb, completely numb."
As Brad packed his belongings and said his goodbyes, fans flocked to Twitter with many confused about Lucinda's teary reaction and why she didn't opt to leave with the 26-year-old labourer from Northumberland.
One fan tweeted: "If he was your dream person why are you not leaving with him #LoveIsland."
Another viewer shared a picture of Theo Every time this type of thing happens like the Lucinda and Brad situation I just remember Theo Campbell from series 3 in 2017, who famously called out Tyla Carr for not leaving with Jonny Mitchell after the pair faced a similar decision. They tweeted: "Every time this type of thing happens like the Lucinda and Brad situation I just remember Theo."
A third Twitter user said: "I am SHOCKED that Brad immediately said Lucinda could stay. Oh my days."
While another person shared: "Lucinda isn’t even trying to fight Brad going."
After leaving the villa, Brad said he is hopeful that the pair can continue getting to know each other and meet each other's families. "I’d love to go to Brighton and meet these people we’ve spoken about, put the faces to names," he said. "Vice versa, bring her to Amble. Just see how we are on the outside.
When asked whether he regrets his decision, Brad said: "On the night, it was one of them situations where, I didn’t want her to leave [with me]. The way we had a connection, it would be really nice to take what we had and continue it on the outside.
"I woke up this morning and I wish we had left together. I want to see where that could have went. Not being able to speak to Cind, or ask her where she’s at, I want to know how she’s woke up this morning.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
