Jess Shears and Mike Thalassitis dumped from Love Island
The islanders knew something was amiss when host Caroline Flack made an unannounced appearance in the villa.
Jess Shears and Mike Thalassitis were voted off Love Island in a dramatic episode of the matchmaking show on Wednesday night (21Jun17).
The islanders knew something was amiss when host Caroline Flack made an unannounced appearance in the villa, at which point she told them that the public had been voting for their favourite couple, and the three least popular couples face being dumped from the island.
Mike and Olivia Attwood, Jess and Dom Lever and Chloe Crowhurst and Chris Hughes found themselves in the lowest position, at which point the remaining girls - Gabby Allen, Montana Brown, Amber Davies and Camilla Thurlow - were given the task of choosing which man to send home. They decided on Mike, before the remaining boys, Marcel Somerville, Kem Cetinay, Sam Gowland and Jonny Mitchell, had to pick a woman to say adios to. They chose Jess, at which point the pair were told to say their goodbyes to their fellow islanders.
After their departures, Jess vowed that she would stay loyal to beau Dom outside the house, and hoped he would also stay away from any new women who enter the villa.
"If Dom finds someone else, I’m happy for him. He is an amazing guy and deserves to find someone who will make him happy," she told the Daily Mail Online. "I don’t want his time in there to be cut short, just because I’ve now left. But it would be hard to watch him with another person. I can’t see him connecting with someone else anytime soon.
"We had two and a half weeks to get to know one another after all. Unless Dom does something to annoy me, I’ll always give him the time of day. I can’t date anyone else til this has all been put to bed with him."
Meanwhile, Mike admitted he regretted getting caught up in the love triangle between him, Olivia and Chris, as he thinks that contributed to his early exit from the show.
"I still feel like I didn’t want to play it safe and I did want to take a risk, but I ended up out in a week, so getting involved in that love triangle and allowing it to go on probably didn’t do me any favours," he explained.
"Truthfully I am a bit gutted (to be leaving). I feel like I had more to give and my time was cut a lot shorter than I thought it would be."
Two new islanders, Tyla and Simon, will be making their big entrance on Thursday night's show.
