Love Island couple Charlie Frederick and Hayley Hughes have been dumped off the ITV2 series after the show’s viewers voted to save Samira Mighty and Alex George.

Host Caroline Flack revealed to contestants that the couples they had deemed the two worst matches were models Hughes and Frederick as well as West End performer Mighty and A&E doctor George.

Flack then announced that the public had been voting on which of the pairs would continue on the show – and they had chosen to save Mighty and George.

Speaking after leaving the villa, Frederick said: “Maybe the public didn’t save us because they may have seen that Hayley was a bit cold towards me.”

Hughes retorted: “That was because I wasn’t compatible with anyone.”

Frederick then said to her: “You could have let me know that I wasn’t compatible with you, so I could have invested my time in someone else.”

Hughes replied: “Things don’t need to end bitter”. Frederick responded that he had only said the pair would remain as friends.

At the end of Friday’s episode, viewers were told two new female contestants would be entering the villa on Sunday night.

The new Islanders appeared on-screen for the first time in brief interview clips.

Ellie, 20, from Newcastle, said that she could fall in love with a piece of bread if it said the “right things” to her.

Government adviser Zara, 21, from Essex, will be joining her and she described herself as “a catch”.

Love Island continues on ITV2.
