“You could definitely see them working on the outside. I hope they do. They’re both really good people.”

Macleod has talked about his own approach to living in the villa, which he said he enjoyed despite his early exit.

He said: “I don’t think I would do anything differently. I genuinely think I was true to myself.

“I didn’t fake anything. It’s just unfortunate that there was no one in there that I connected with.

“There were definitely people in there that I was closer to and maybe if the opportunity had come to speak to those people more it might have been a little bit different.”

Macleod has said he was unwilling to fake feelings for any of the girls on Love Island as it would not be fair on his partner.

The departing contestant has said he would welcome the chance to enter the villa again .

Callum will appear on Love Island: Aftersun on Sunday June 9 at 10pm on ITV2.
