Former Miss Great Britain Zara Holland has left ITV2's Love Island after her mother fell ill.

The beauty queen (20) was stripped of her title after scenes showing her having sex were broadcast on Wednesday.

ITV has since said in a statement: "Owing to an illness in the family, Zara Holland has left the Love Island villa to return to the UK."

Holland said of her departure: "I'm so sad to leave the villa but it's important for me to get home and spend time with my mum while she gets better."

ITV added that Holland can return to the show at a later stage if she wanted to and "depending on circumstances in the villa".
