Last night's episode saw Yewande dumped from the villa after Danny chose to re-couple with new girl Arabella.

Her fellow islander Anton has been facing backlash for choosing to save Lucie over Yewande.

Lucie found love in the villa with dumped islander Joe and many felt Yewande deserved that chance too.

Anton's family jump to his defense

The islander's family have been managing his social media accounts.

They took to Twitter writing, 'Guys, I really don’t feel like it’s fair to say that Yewande’s elimination was down to Anton.'

'He’s been very close friends with Lucie throughout his time in the villa and she made it clear to him that she wishes to stay.'

'We’re gutted that Yewande is no longer in the villa... we love you @yewande_biala.'

Fan reactions

While some fans believe Anton made the wrong decision...

Others feel he's not to blame for Yewande's exit...

'totally not antons fault !!! he chose the right person.'

Meanwhile, Joe has said he would have the left the villa if it was Lucie that was dumped and not him.

The former islander opens up in a brand new interview which you can read about here.

Love Island returns to Virgin Media Two tonight from 9pm.
