Yewande dumped from the Love Island villa

Our Irish scientist Yewande has been dumped from Love Island and we're devastated.

Check out her first interview since leaving the villa here:

She referred to her experience as, 'a roller-coaster of emotions, up and down.'

'I learnt so much about myself. I made amazing friends and I wouldn’t change anything.'

She admits the biggest thing she's learned about herself on the show was that she can open up romantically.

Her coupling with Danny began to fall apart over her inability to show affection.

'I can show a little bit of affection, which is something I struggled with in the past.'

Friendship goals

The scientist gushes over her co-stars remarking that she never knew she would meet, 'such amazing people.'

'I didn’t realise I would fall in love with such amazing people and I have, which is amazing.'

Speaking of her relationship with Danny she says he was, 'the only person that [she] had a connection with in the villa.'

'At that time [of the re-coupling] I couldn’t see myself with anybody else.'

Despite her misfortune in the villa, she made some amazing friends.

She said she was closest with Amber and Anna because she started the journey with them.

'I think we clicked straight away.'

Some people are playing games

Yewande believes there are a couple of people in the villa that are just playing games.

'A lot of people aren’t there for the right reasons. I’d probably say there are only two genuine couples.'

'Michael and Amber and Curtis and Amy.'

She says the most challenging part of the whole experience was, 'throwing yourself into an environment that you don’t know.'

'Every day is different, different personalities and characters, and you’re always guessing what is going to happen.'

Michael and Amber

Yewande thinks Michael and Amber are end game.

'I walked in and coupled up with Michael, he said ‘there’s something about Amber that I love so much.’'

'I was friends with Amber and she was like ‘he’s not my type.’'

8/8 would put a ring on it #LoveIsland

She said of Amber, 'Gradually you could see her getting nervous around him.'

'The way it’s developed is so organic, which is the way it normally happens on the outside. It’s so magical to watch it happen.'

Yewande would do it all again

The islander says if she was given the chance to go back she, '100% would.'

'I feel like I haven’t finished my journey. It came to an end quite abruptly.'

'I would love the chance to find someone that I feel is genuine.'

'Also just continue the friendships I have made.'

Her initial reaction to the Love Island experience

The former islander says she felt the beginning of the show was much easier.

'You’re on a journey with five other girls and five other boys who are nervous and excited, and I wasn’t the only one in a friendship couple.'

She feels it was easier because everyone was in the same position.

'No one knew who they wanted to be with and a lot of people were struggling so you were never alone. I’m very happy that I came in first.'

Yewande is in need of a pep talk from her girls #LoveIsland

Danny and Arabella

When asked whether she thinks Danny and Arabella have a future she said, 'maybe.'

'A bombshell coming in, it’s very hard and it’s difficult to know their intentions.'

Yewande says she hates when people come into the villa and hold their cards close to their chest.

'You know who you’re going for. She knew she wanted Danny. I feel like if he does get to know her, it’s not going to work.'

There’s no denying it: This is an excellent date. #LoveIsland

She thinks their seven year age gap might be an issue, 'You have to be realistic. He’s just starting his life – he’s only 21.'

'They are in two different phases of their lives. In the villa, it’s very easy to forget.'

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