Wait, WHAT?

Love Island 2018 is only in its second month and we're obsessed.

What will Samira do now that Frankie has left? Will Georgia's head be turned by the new boys? And can Dani and Jack just get married already?

One of the biggest talking points has been the evictions, with Frankie and Grace, voted the least popular, voted off the show just this week.

While viewers were sad - especially for Samira who had only just got into a comfortable couple - it was nothing compared to previous exits - with reluctant couple Charlie Frederick and Hayley Hughes' exit deemed one of the most unfair - well, for Charlie at least.


Having only been in the villa for a matter of days, Charlie’s departure was seen by viewers as premature, with Love Island fans taking to Twitter to voice their sadness for the 23-year-old model.

‘Can we vote Hayley and Charlie out and then start a petition to get Charlie back in the villa like Sam last year?’ Tweeted Matt Turner, while another viewer JXD tweeted, ‘Absolutely GUTTED for Charlie! We need a petition to get the chap back in the Villa! Hayley has completely destroyed his experience.’

While some time has passed, it still looks possible that the popular former islander might be going back to the villa, with or without a petition.

In fact, according to an insider, it is quite possible that he will be brought back onto the show in the next week or so.

‘Charlie was a hit with viewers and behind the scenes everyone thinks it’s really unfortunate he had to leave,’ the insider reportedly told The Sun online. ‘There’s been a lot of talk about how he could possibly make a comeback – just like Mike Thalassitis did in last year’s series.’

The source continued: ‘What they don’t want to happen is make it predictable though, so if Charlie does come back to the villa it’s going to be in an explosive way. Bosses know what the public want and they have listened. Watch this space when it comes to Charlie.’

Could a Charlie-Samira romance FINALLY be on the cards? This would be the perfect time
