LOVE ISLAND: Niall has left the villa

“Niall has left the villa for personal reasons”

Why has Niall left Love Island?

Niall left Love Island due to “personal reasons”.

Alex said on Love Island: “For personal reasons unfortunately he can’t continue or come back to the villa.”

A statement by ITV reiterated the same message: “Niall has left the villa for personal reasons.”

However, now The Sun have claimed the hunk had to leave the show for "health reasons".

Niall supposedly fell ill nine days into the programme, leading to producers deciding it was time for him to go.

A source told The Sun: "Duty of care is the most important consideration on shows like this and as soon as he felt unwell, ITV would have had a discussion with him about leaving.

"The decision they took would have been taken between all parties with Niall's health being the only consideration."

A separate source told Mail Online the reason Niall had left was due to his insecurities.

These are supposed to have stemmed from being self-conscious about his ears before getting them pinned back.

The source claimed: "Niall left for personal reasons regarding himself only. He doesn't deal well with stress or criticism, and would hate to have situations where he's involved in conflict publicised.

"It's an emotionally stressful environment and he over worries to the point where he gets stressed.

"Before he got his ears pinned back, if anyone wasn't interested in him or made a joke he'd assume it was about his ears and put a hat on for the rest of the day just to avoid people seeing."

LOVE ISLAND: Niall had an operation to pin his ears back

Niall himself has yet to clear the air on why he had to leave.

A spokesman for the show told Mirror Online: “We’re not saying anything further at this point.”

Some fans on social media believe they have sussed out the mysterious reason for him leaving.

During yesterday's confrontation between Rosia and Adam, Rosie could be hear saying, in a throwaway comment: "You say about Niall not being honest the other night, but you literally did what he did... and didn't have the balls to tell me before that you were going to do it."

One person on Twitter wrote: "Did anyone else notice Rosie reference Niall’s dishonesty in her confrontation with Adam, I reckon he’s broke the rules in some way and that’s why it’s so hush hush."

Another commented: "Rosie said to Adam 'you had a go at Niall for lying the other night and you've done exactly what he did', what did Niall do?!!!!"

“He was actually my friend, my buddy.”

He said: “I’m obviously sad that Niall’s left the villa.

“We got on really really well. He’s such a great guy. And I look forward to catching up with him and having some fun with him outside.”
