Love Island’s Yewande dumped in controversial recoupling

Yewande Biala has been dumped from Love Island after a controversial recoupling.

The Irish scientist was given the boot after none of the boys chose to couple up with her – and fans are outraged.

The power was in Danny Williams’ hands as he was ultimately given the decision of who to send home.

In a seemingly unpopular choice, Danny picked model Arabella Chi to couple up with instead of Yewande.

Yewande, 23, didn’t find love in the villa but made some close friends and was forced to say some emotional goodbyes.

The eight girls had all gathered around the fire pit for the big reveal.

Yewande and Arabella couldn’t even look at Danny and were staring at the ground when he revealed his decision.

Danny said: “This hasn’t been an easy decision. So the girl I would like to couple up with is Arabella.”

The rest of the recoupling was fairly straight forward, with Tommy Fury choosing Molly-Mae Hague, Curtis Pritchard picking Amy Hart, and Michael Griffiths going for Amber Gill.

Despite their bust-up Tom Walker went for Maura Higgins, while Jordan Hames chose Anna Vakili.

Anton Danyluk remained a gentleman and coupled up with Lucie Donlan as friends.

Speaking after her exit, Yewande admitted she would not have changed anything in retrospect.

She said: “I think I would have because Danny was the only person that I had a connection with in the villa. At that time I couldn’t see myself with anybody else.

“I really believe that everything happens for a reason and I wouldn’t change anything. If I did, I wouldn’t know the outcome and I wouldn’t know if it would be any better or worse.

Yewande also discussed which couples were not being honest and revealed who was ‘faking’ their romance.

The 23-year-old said: “I think there are a couple of people in there playing a game – a lot of people aren’t there for the right reasons.

“I’d probably say there are only two genuine couples. Michael and Amber and Curtis and Amy.”

Summing up her time in the villa, Yewande added: “It was a rollercoaster of emotions, up and down. I learnt so much about myself. I made amazing friends and I wouldn’t change anything.

“The biggest thing I learnt about myself was that I can open up romantically and I can show a little bit of affection, which is something I struggled with in the past.”

Love Island airs all week at 9pm on ITV2.
