Ollie's story

Ollie made his debut on the winter series of Love Island over the weekend.

However, just four days into the new season he decided to leave the show in order to follow his heart.

The Islander says he's in love with his ex and feels it would be immoral to pursue a romance with fellow contestant Paige.

The news of his departure comes just days after a petition popped up to have Ollie removed.

Prior to his debut in the villa the heir was revealed as a big game hunter.

Many feel he was urged to leave the villa by show bosses however, Maura Higgins has another theory altogether.

Maura's theory

In an interview with Capital this week, Maura admits, "I don't think [his ex was] the real reason."

She tells the station, "I reckon maybe like because of all the stuff online maybe his parents pulled him out."

"That's what I'm thinking, maybe they didn't realise there would be that much impact online."

Bosses dig through Islanders' social media accounts before they make their debut on the show.

So Maura can't understand how they never pulled him up on the game hunter images.

"Do you know what they do though...my socials were hounded so many times."

The Love Island 2019 finalist feels the twins need to include themselves more.

"I think they're at risk because they're very excluded from the group and that's not going to do them any favours..."

"And then pulling the guys for chats together, like, do it on your own, you don't need your sister by your side!"
