Who left Love Island 2022? Full list of dumped contestants and those who quit

Love Island season is in full swing with viewers tuning in to ITV2 at 9pm every night to catch the latest from the villa. The popular dating show is in its eighth series and sees a group of singletons spend a summer in Majorca trying to find love and win £50,000 in the process.

Among those in the original line-up were Swansea paramedic Paige Thorne, international dressage rider Gemma Owen, who is the daughter of football legend Michael Owen, and student Liam Llewellyn from Newport, who quit after the first week. You can read more on his decision to leave, here.

There have also been many bombshells entering the villa this year, including Davide Sanclimenti, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Danica Taylor. The show has also seen the return of series 4 contestant Adam Collard. You can read more about the twist here.

And while there are no doubt more new contestants to come, the series has also had to wave goodbye to some Islanders.

But who has left the Love Island 2022 villa so far? Here's everything you need to know and we'll keep this article updated as the series continues.

Lacey, Reece and Nathalia left the villa together after a brief stint on the show. Deji, who was a Casa Amor bombshell, was also dumped from the show.

While Reece and Nathalia failed to find a romantic connection on the show, Lacey and Deji were getting closer before the dumping. Upon her exit, Lacey said: "I am just honestly really grateful that I got to be a part of the show. I've made really good friends and I am excited to see what happens with me and Deji."

While Nathalia added: "I am happy that in a short space of time I experienced a lot of the Love Island journey. I am actually excited to go outside and see my friends and family again."

Summer Botwe and Billy Brown - dumped

Summer and Billy were dumped during a twist that saw host Laura Whitmore crash a VIP party and announce the public had been voting for their favourite contestants. Summer and Billy were in the bottom four alongside Dami Hope and Danica Taylor, who were then saved by their fellow Islanders.

Billy said of his exit: "I felt that if it was my time then it was my time. It is what it is. Not happy, not sad, I’m just going with the flow with it and whatever happens, happens. "

While Summer added: "It’s bittersweet, I would have loved to have made it until the end but I am absolutely over the moon with how far I’ve got. I am definitely leaving on a high with my head held high."

Coco Lodge and Josh Le Grove - dumped

Casa Amor bombshells Josh and Coco were voted the least popular boy and girl in the villa and were forced to pack their suitcases in double dumping. They were in the bottom alongside Tasha and Andrew and Summer and Deji.

Coco said: "When I heard that viewers were voting for their favourite Islander, I did expect to be at risk based on the fact I didn’t have a connection there." While Josh added: "Everything happens for a reason and I'm just glad those guys get another opportunity, especially Tasha and Andrew because if they’d have gone home, that would have been sad - they’d just become official.

"And Deji hasn’t had his chance to really flourish yet so happy for those guys."

Jacques O'Neill - quit

Love Island confirmed Jacques O'Neill quit the show in a statement on Tuesday, July 12. He is the second Islander to walk from the 2022 series after Liam Llewellyn left the villa in the first week.

A Love Island spokesperson said: "Jacques has made the decision to leave the Villa. He will explain his reasons to the Islanders during tonight's episode. We fully support his decision and look forward to seeing what's next for Jacques." You can read more on this here.

Jay Younger and Chyna Mills - dumped

Jay and Chyna were dumped by their fellow Islanders after finding themselves in the bottom two alongside Dami Hope and Summer Botwe following a public vote.

Jay was a bombshell early on in the series who recoupled with Chyna during Casa Amor. Upon her exit, Chyna said: "It’s a bit bittersweet because my time was cut short. But, I think they definitely made the right decision."

While Jay added: "I feel great, I feel like it was my time."

Casa Amor recoupling

The explosive Casa Amor recoupling saw six new couples form but also sadly sent home six new bombshells. Those that were not chosen in the recoupling were sadly sent home before their Love Island journey really began.

Among those who left the villa was Cheyanne Kerr, who had been getting closer to Jacques O'Neill. Viewers at home were shocked when Jacques decided to stick with Paige Thorne, sending Cheyanne home, despite them getting to know one another. You can read more on this here.

Charlie said: "Short and sweet. It's been great though. So good, such an experience." While Antigoni added: "I was having so much fun and the right guy didn't come in for me. But there are plenty more guys on the outside.

"My time on the island has been so fun, intense, emotional... and quick."

Ikenna and Amber were third and fourth to be dumped from the villa during series eight as the public voted for their favourite boy and girl. The boys with the lowest votes were Ikenna, Jay and Andrew, while the three girls were Ekin-Su, Tasha and Amber.

After learning she would be going home, Amber said: "It was definitely a shock but I’m excited for the future. I’m excited to see the other islanders but hopefully not too soon! I’ll be rooting for all of them.

While Ikenna added: "I didn’t find romance but it was nice to be in the villa, nice to have a pool in the heat, couldn’t really complain. Obviously short-lived but that’s cool though."

Remi Lambert - dumped

The model and rapper was the second Islander to be dumped from the 2022 series. The 22-year-old entered the villa as a bombshell alongside Jay Younger but his journey was short-lived.

Remi was dumped from the show during a recoupling that saw Danica Taylor choose Luca Bish, while Gemma Owen — who was left single after Luca was stolen — chose to recouple with Davide Sanclimenti.

With all the other pairings confirmed, including Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Jay Younger, bombshell Remi was ejected from the villa. Following his exit he spoke to host Laura Whitmore on Love Island: Aftersun, you can read more about that, here.

Afia Tonkmor - dumped

Afia was the first contestant to be dumped from the villa. The 25-year-old was sent home after bombshell Jacques O'Neill chose to couple up with Welsh paramedic Paige Thorne.

The dumping came after Liam Llewellyn quit the villa, leaving more girls in the villa than boys. Paige and Afia were thrown a lifeline in the form of Jacques, but the newcomer ultimately decided to pair up with Paige, sending Afia home.

Liam Llewellyn - quit

The student, who hails from Newport, left the show in the first week after telling his fellow Islanders he hadn't been giving "100% Liam".

The 22-year-old student, who is the son of a Welsh rugby international, announced he was leaving the ITV2 dating show after just five days. Gathering his fellow Islanders around the fire pit, he said: "Obviously we all came here for the same sort of reason, but I haven't been giving 100 per cent Liam. I know what 100 per cent Liam is and I'm miles off that.

"Trying to find someone you leave the villa with that you love, that's the goal. But when you're not feeling that, it makes it a very hard sort of time to find that. I've been thinking long and hard, it isn't spur of the moment, so I've made a decision I'm going to leave the villa."

Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox. For more showbiz and television stories get our newsletter here.
