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.'

Anton had to pick before Danny so how could it possibly be Anton’s fault?! He couldn’t pick Yewande when Danny was still to pick! Honestly some people on social media are completely ridiculous ♀️

He’s done everyone proud, it’s not his fault or Lucie’s at all. I think they both really care for each other and may stick too, I wish them the best of luck x
