Love Island contestant Ollie Williams has quit the show.

Here the PA news agency takes a look at islanders who have had an early exit from the villa.

The chef and semi-professional rugby player said he was thrown out of the villa for kicking a female contestant in the crotch and then using bad language to joke about his actions.

He hit Islander Molly-Mae Hague and then told fellow contestant Tommy Fury: “That’s a c*** punt.”

ITV announced his exit by saying that he had broken the programme’s rules.

Amy said she quit Love Island to protect her mental health after seeing her former partner moving on with another woman.

She had been in a relationship with Curtis Pritchard before they split up.

The former air hostess said she was “in a horrible place” and feared that watching her ex become involved with someone else would trigger her anxiety.
