Following another explosive episode of the reality series, Amber Beckford and Ikenna Ekwonna were dumped from the villa, as contestants learned of the results of the latest savage public vote.
Viewers of the hit ITV2 show were given the option to vote for their favourite male and female contestant, with the least popular facing the chop. In dramatic opening scenes around the firepit, Islanders were sent a text asking them to take their places, before it was revealed that Amber and Ikenna were sent packing.
Following the vote, it was announced the boys with the lowest votes were Ikenna, Jay and Andrew, while the three girls were Ekin-Su, Tasha and Amber. After Monday’s gripping ending, many fans had already Amber and Ikenna would be dumped.
Fans reacted to the news on Twitter, with many questioning the decision. Fans believed they had worked out who would be packing their bags after a chunk of the Monday night episode focused on the flourishing romance between Indiyah Pollack and Dami Hope.
