Ollie Williams breaks silence on real reason he quit Love Island

Love Island contestant Ollie Williams has broken his silence to explain the real reason he left the villa.

Viewers had been calling for Ollie to be booted out by producers amid accusations he's involved in trophy hunting after shocking pictures surfaced of him posed alongside dead animals.

Despite growing calls for him to leave, in his first statement since leaving the villa, Ollie insisted he had decided to walk due to personal issues.

The aristocrat said he realised he was in love with somebody else and it 'wouldn't be fair' to waste anyone's time if he was to stay on the ITV2 dating show.

  • Love Island's Ollie Williams could be most complained about contestant ever

In his first statement since quitting, Ollie said: "I have to be honest with myself, and everyone, that I do still love someone else… I have to follow my heart in this scenario and it would be wrong for me to ignore these feelings.

"At the end of the day, this is Love Island and it’s about finding love. If I carried on anything with Paige, or any other girl that might come into the villa, it wouldn’t be fair on them."

A Love Island spokesperson confirmed it was Ollie's decision to leave.


Despite series six being only two episodes in, there had been concerns that Ollie would become the most complained about contestant ever.

Just two episodes into the first ever winter edition and close to 500 viewers took to Ofcom to complain to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom about the wealthy landowner's game hunting past.

People were upset when pictures emerged online of Ollie proudly posing with dead animals, despite him calling himself an animal lover.

Ollie is the son and heir of Andrew Williams, Viscount Clifden, the Lord of the Manor of the Lanhydrock Estate, in Cornwall.

But the Viscount recently turned down the chance to defend his son.

When asked if he wanted to say anything in his son's defence, he told the Daily Star : "This is Oliver's journey and we won't be commenting."

Ollie's stint in the villa had been short but explosive with the heir set to come between two of the girls on Wednesday night's episode.

On the first day, he chose to be paired with Lewis Capaldi's ex Paige, after none of the girls stepped forward for him.

But the Scottish beauty admitted later that day he 'wasn't really her type' and things soured even more with Ollie admitted he'd cheated on his ex girlfriend eight times.

A preview for tonight's episode sees Ollie come between Paige and Siannese after admitting he fancies the Bristolian beauty therapist.

It's thought the episode will be the last time Ollie appears on the dating show after deciding to leave.

His three day stint in the villa makes Ollie the fastest contestant to quit Love Island since it began in 2015.

Last year Sherif Lanre agreed to leave after nine days for playfighting with Molly Mae Hague.
