It has been confirmed that Samira Mighty has left Love Island. She has decided to “follow her heart” after Frankie Foster was eliminated earlier this week.
The 22-year-old dancer was heartbroken following Frankie’s exit from the popular reality show.
Samira originally planned to stay on the show, despite her beau’s departure, but she said being surrounded by other couples was too much for her to handle.
She opened up to Megan, Ellie and Dani about her decision: “My beautiful girls, you guys know that I've had a really rough couple of days here recently and I've been umming and ahhing about leaving.”
“I've not had any connection in here with anyone and I had a little taste of that with Frankie and it's gone abruptly and I think I'd always be thinking 'what if'.”
Samira said she knew she had to go with her gut feeling: “I woke up this morning and I thought it's my time to go, I have to do this for me. I've never felt so strong.”

"This decision is so, so hard. I'm devastated by it. But I think that it is the right thing to do. Just follow my heart because I've never done that before.”
She is planning on pursuing her relationship with Frankie outside of the villa: “'I've always taken the back seat and now I need to go for it head on and leave and just go for Frankie."
