Love Island 2018 star Savanna Darnell's dad has admitted that he attempted to pay his daughter to not go on the ITV reality show.

Savanna dismissed his worries and went on the show anyway as part of the Casa Amor segment of the programme, which she later regretted doing. 

The singer and dancer was 22-years-old at the time when she entered the season four villa, but she was dumped only four days later.

Kid Creole's August Darnell spoke to Christine Lampard on Lorraine today, saying that he was completely against the idea of Savanna taking part.

He said: "I should point out that I paid her money to not go in to do Love Island.

"I said, 'I will pay you this amount of money if you don't do this show'. She said, 'I want to do it.' And I said, 'You're old enough to make your own decisions' and she did it."

He couldn't list all of the reasons why he didn't want her on the show; "That's a long story. If we had a longer time I would tell you all the reasons I was against her doing it."

"But as you say, she's an adult, she makes her own decisions, I just gave her my opinion."

Savanna posted a YouTube video on her experience as a Casa Amor participant earlier this year, referring to her time on the show as "horrific".

Apparently, she had originally been told she would be one of the first girls on the series, but was sent back to the UK after 10 days of isolation in a Mallorca hotel.

"I remember them saying 'Keep your bags packed, we’re going to call you very soon, you’ll be back before you know it', she said. "So I couldn’t take any jobs in case they call me and say you’re going on."

"I spent three weeks at home, doing absolutely nothing. I didn’t want to leave my bed and my mum was really worried about me."

Savanna said she began to get "stress spots" after one month of this experience, and put on weight because she was binge-eating after having weeks of no carbs.

She was eventually flown out to Love Island as one of the Casa Amor bombshells but left after just five days after failing to couple up with anyone.

She was shocked that scenes between her and Wes had been cut and that she had minimal screen time. She also experienced trolling and bullying online about her appearance and personality.

"I remember reading some horrible comments about how I was the ugliest Islander ever, that I should get breast cancer and die," she said. "That was a horrible time it my life, it was just horrendous."

Winner of Love Island 2019 Amber Gill is heading to Limerick to visit Greg O'Shea this weekend, and we can't WAIT to have the Geordie on Irish shores.

The pair were crowned the winning couple after Greg had only entered the villa 12 days previously in a shock decision, beating favourites Molly Mae Hague and Tommy Fury in the process.

Gill will fly over to Ireland to spend the weekend with rugby player Greg, after he was spotted visiting Amber's family in Newcastle and surprising her with a huge birthday cake.

The charming Irishman received a massive homecoming when he arrived in Shannon airport last week following his big win, earning 25,000 pounds in the process.

The stunning beautician has since landed gigs with British Vogue, Loose Women and Dancing On Ice, and answered fan questions via Instagram about her 'lush' beau.

She said: "I'm going to see Greg this weekend. I'm going to fly over to Ireland and spend the weekend with him." When asked: "Is Greg as lush in real life?" Amber confirmed he's "10/10."

She said: "Greg, oh my god, he is lusher in real life he is so fit." *Swoons* He really is a keeper.

The pair were spotted Facetiming after spending their third night apart since Greg's return home.

He told the MailOnline: “I asked her about fifty times to come home with me but she's so busy, everybody in Britain wants a bit of Amber, I'll get her over very soon.”

He made sure to mention that he only has eyes for the 22-year-old beauty.

“I definitely will be faithful, I've always been a one woman kind of guy and Amber is a great girl.

“I’m lucky to come out with her so I can't wait to get her over here to meet my family and friends. To use the Love Island phrase, all my eggs are in Amber's basket right now, I'm only looking at her.”

Love Island 2018 winner Dani Dyer has revealed that she needed therapy after an emotionally controlling relationship left her "trapped".

The 23-year-old reality star spoke to Stella magazine, and said that she dated a 'prince charming' from 16-years-old until the age of 19, who turned out to be the "worst part of her life".

"It was because of him that I lost my confidence in acting," she said, noting that her weight dropped by seven stone.

"He became my whole world and I just wanted to please him, but if I got a good part – like a role in We Still Kill the Old Way – he’d shake his head and say: 'Why do you want to do that?' He’d make me feel I couldn’t really do it.

"But it didn't just make me stronger, it made me realise how important my family were, how important I was, how much I needed my friends and how easy it is to get trapped like that if you don't watch out and put up little rules."

Back in 2018, Dyer won the ITV hit show with then-boyfriend Jack Fincham, after 80 percent of voters chose the couple to win the £50,000 cash prize on Love Island.

The pair lasted six months outside of the villa before splitting up, after being shot to instant stardom.

The aftercare initiative helped Dani cope with the sudden fame, as well as her actor dad Danny Dyer's advice.

"It can be very tough but everyone is so different in the way they handle things. I spoke to a psychologist from the show before I went on and afterwards," she said.

"I had several calls from the producers checking if I was okay. And a few weeks after the show when I felt overwhelmed and said I needed to speak to someone they put me in touch with a psychiatrist.

"Initially when you come out everyone is lovely and then you start seeing a few negative stories and it can be hard to handle."

Dani believes that she has a role model status because she doesn't have the same party girl lifestyle as other reality stars.

"I had loads of people on Instagram asking me about boys and relationships. I realised people were thinking of me as a role model, something I never expected, and you have to take that seriously," she said.

"I think of myself as a pretty moral person. I don't go out drinking, I've never been interested in drugs or parties. I don't like nightclubs because I like being able to talk to my friends."

Dani is now dating 23-year-old stockbroker Sammy Kimmence, who she briefly dated as a teenager. The pair have moved in together.

"Within five years I want to be married with a baby," she said.

"I've told him I want to get married. I've told him I want him to propose to me on a boat. I've even told him what kind of ring I want. I don't hold back, I put it all out there. He's totally up for it," she laughed.

The winner of Love Island 2018 has opened up about his split from Dani Dyer, blaming their break-up on the intensity of moving the relationship along too fast.

The reality star is currently searching for The One on Celebs Go Dating, and got candid about what went wrong with his previous girlfriend.

After admitting to dating experts Anna Williamson and Paul Carrick Brunson that he doesn't think he's ever been in love, he spoke about having a relationship that's totally in the spotlight.

"Dani is the one I was attracted to. We just sort of clicked, like, personality-wise. Then we just spent every day together for two months. That's intense," he said.

"This was like the ideal scenario," he added. "But when we lived together… I think if we had lived in Love Island forever we'd have been fine. But we didn't. We rushed it, we moved straight in together straight away."

Jack admitted that he did initially want to move in with Dani straight away, but said: "I wish we'd have waited. I let her rush it a little bit.

"We had a genuine connection in there, and I think anyone could see that. I mean this from the bottom of my heart, I wish her all the happiness in the world, I'm not a bitter person."

He made sure to mention that he's "100%" over Dani and is definitely ready to start dating again. "I want to find someone now," he said.

Dating experts set Jack up on a date with Chiara in last night's episode, but it got fairly awkward, to say the least. Jack interrupted Chiara constantly, asking her a barrage of questions.

There was a mix-up when he believed she wanted to leave with the waiter, and then actually tried to set her up with one of them. *Sigh*.

The date didn't end well, with Jack labelling it 'a disaster': "That's the most surreal date I've been on. That was really weird," he said.

"You know, that's the first dating disaster I've had – I'm going to call it a disaster. That's the first date I've been on that I've thought, 'f**k that'."

Considering every single Love Island couple from season four broke up within six months, we don't have high for series five's lovers. Not even Greg and Amber (hello, Limerick to Newcastle?).

New data has now revealed that the couples will break up after only 69 days, and our jaws ain't hitting no floors. The show really doesn't produce romance, just pure lust and instant fame.

Watches2U have analysed the length of time that the couples usually stay together within one year of leaving the villa, and the Islanders are set to pie each other off by October 6, 2019.

The data analysed how many of the top three couples were still an item after their series ended, and just three of the 12 couples were staying strong 365 days after the series they starred in finished.

Cara and Nathan broke up 273 days after the show finished, but got back together a year later. It's clearly not an easy feat to make it as a couple 'on the outside', as the study proves.

With each series that goes on, surviving outside of the villa appears to be causing more problems- most likely because of the ITV reality show's massive growth in popularity.

Series two couples were going strong for an average of 334 days, and one relationship even ended with marriage (Olivia and Alex) and a baby for one lucky pair of Islanders (Cara and Nathan). 

Season four pairs were loyal for just 159 days on average, barely making it to Christmas.

The pilot season was considered an anomaly, as only two romantic couples placed in the top three and lasted only three months. It's no formula for catching a long-term boo, that's for sure.

Instagram/@loveisland 

The team predicts that the top three season five couples will last a total of 69 days on average, which is pretty measly.

There was a huge amount of tactical recoupling this year, and more than the villa's fair share of fuckboi snakes (Danny, Michael, Jordan- looking at you).

The lack of strong couples and exclusivity are the reason for such a small prediction, but we're praying that #Gramber survive longer than that.

Image: Watches2U

Watches2U created a graph to depict how long the final three couples lasted within the first year of leaving the villa.   

From this, the percentage decrease in relationship length between each series from two to four was investigated, calculating an average percentage decrease of 24.065 percent.

This means that the data predicts series five's couples lasting 19 percent out of 365 days- just 69 days in total. Sob. Come on Greg and Amber, prove them wrong.

Dani Dyer has revealed one of the Love Island villa's more…interesting…safety rules and we're pretty surprised by it.

Despite the gig looking like one of the easiest in the world, with everyone lazing about in the sun all day, the daughter of Danny Dyer has revealed that their time in the sun was monitored.

The 23-year-old said that the health of contestants was hugely important to the team, with the producers placing strict regulations on the amount of time they spent in the sun and their water consumption.

The actress explained to Hello Magazine that; "It is so hot and you have first aid that come in like twice a day" adding that "they are always on your case, there is sun tan lotion everywhere, they are always on at you about drinking water."

The former Love Island winner, who coupled up with Jack Fincham last year, disclosed that:

"They really do look after you in there, you are like little babies. You come out and you want someone to say to you 'Dani, do you want some water?'."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@danidyerxx) on

The 2018 winner opened up about facing reality when she emerged from the villa; 

"When I first came out, that was really surreal to me, like the first moment I came out the villa, because obviously I had no contact with the outside world, I had no idea what was going on and to come out and get everyone sort of knowing you and thrust into it all, that was probably the most difficult moment."

Other rules involve no masturbating, eating lunch and dinner at specific times, no reading books or magazines, no showering at night, only two alcoholic drinks (no spirits though) on a 'big night', no unprotected sex, chats must be scheduled and interesting, no nudity allowed, no discriminating, no drunken sex and no waxes.

Former Love Island contestant and model Megan Barton Hanson has come out as bisexual (hey, Pride month is June after all…) and opened up about falling in love with women.

Speaking candidly to The Sun, the reality star said she feels 'deeper connections' with women, and claims that she auditioned unsuccessfully for the show in 2017, but believes that being open about her bisexuality 'put them off' casting her.

"I just felt like I needed to get with a guy because society said so but after the shit I've been through, I just want to see how it goes with a woman." Fair play, gal. You do you.

The star was coupled up with former beau Wes Anderson, but the pair have since split up. Though she never spoke about women on the show, she has had love in her life with those of the opposite sex:

"I first fell in love with a girl when I was 16, but it wasn't even in a sexual way. I never saw her just in that way, but we'd like hang out, and one thing led to another.

"We would do everything together. I found her more and more attractive, and not even the way she looked, just like the way she was in general," she continued.

She added: "I've slept with girls, but I've never had long term romances with girls. It's not just a sexual thing for me, I feel like I have a deeper connection with women…

"I think long-term I would get with a woman, but it's hard. I really want kids, so that's something I'd need to look into when the time comes," she expanded.

Megan was also asked about her audition for the infamous ITV2 show, and she claims:  "I was super open and said I feel like I'm more into girls, but I think that's what put them off in 2017."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@meganbartonhanson_) on

She went on to reference her 2018 audition, which led to her casting;

"In Love Island I already felt I had a stigma attached to me because of being a stripper. I didn't want to like add to it by revealing I like girls as well!

"But now I feel like everyone has accepted that and to be honest, I don't care what people think. I'm 25, I want to find someone, maybe not the one, but the one for now," she said.

In terms of looking for a partner for life, Megan said: "I want to find someone to travel with and enjoy life with, so I feel like I just need to be a bit brave now and say it how it is.

"It's so easy to let fear of people's opinions stop you from being true to yourself."

The model felt under pressure "by society" to reveal her sexuality and claims that she's decided to come out now because the public can still be negative and narrow-minded about sexual identity.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@meganbartonhanson_) on

"If it's right, you've got one life, live it, enjoy life," she said. "Just live. Although we're much more open-minded and less judgmental now, there is still a lot of judging around people's sexuality.

"If you have any type of platform I think it's important to use it for people who don't have a voice.

"There's a lot of people who fear they can't come out – but the more it's spoken about the more it becomes less of a thing."

Love Island 2018 winner Dani Dyer has made her first public appearance with her new beau, Sammy Kimmence, and couldn't look happier.

The television personality let her outfit do the talking this time, sporting a white blazer emblazoned with the word 'honest' on the back.

The star was working the camera from every angle, and pulled out all the stops for the evening.

After uploading a picture of herself and Sammy over the weekend, fans berated her for moving on quickly after her break-up with fellow Love Island winner and ex, Jack Fincham.

Instagram users made their opinions clear, saying things like, "How do people move on so quickly? I’d love to know!” and "What you playing at? Jack is so fit.” (People are shockingly quick to judge women they don't even know…)

Dani didn't hold back with her reply, revealing that she's happier than ever and doesn't care what anyone else thinks; "“I’m not going to delete anyone’s comments. You can all say what you want to say honestly we live in a free world.

"But I’m so happy. I ain’t living a life to prove to people or to fake to people I am something I am not I’ve always been real."

She continued: “Some people like it some people don’t. I’m focusing on number one. No time for anything no plans made it’s just happened and you can judge all you want.

“But come on I’m the real judge Judy.”

Dani split up with her ex, Jack Fincham, in April after 10 months together. He has recently signed up for the next series of Celebs Go Dating, so his love life mustn't be as successful as Dani's…

We're glad Dani has the sense to ignore the online trolls, people most likely wouldn't be as quick to harass Jack online if he had a new girlfriend…

We genuinely thought that reality television stars in this day and age earned their fare share of cash, otherwise why are they so hell-bent on staying relevant?

Apparently not this year. According to The Daily Star, the stars of 2019's Love Island will be paid just £250 a week this summer. That's not even minimum wage, so it's fairly surprising.

Thousands of young men and women have applied to appear on the ITV2 show this year, despite the recent suicides of ex-contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.

The winners of the cash prize receive £50,000… which is quite the step up from their weekly wages. Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham won the competition last year, and earned plenty more through sponsorships and appearances,

However, some past contestants claim the show fails to properly prepare the participants for the difficulties of appearing in public and on social media.

Mental health struggles, trolling and depression have been raised as issues which the series allegedly contributes to. Many who made the final line-up have quit their jobs or been granted extended leave to join the Spanish villa, but is it worth it?

The Daily Star have affirmed that the ITV bosses are paying the islanders just £250 a week to  “compensate” for giving up time to be on the show. If they last the entire eight weeks, they bag £2,000, which isn't much.

The majority of contestants only last a couple of days, and get just £250 as a result. One source said: “Everyone now knows that stepping into that villa brings good and bad things.

“They risk coming out and being trolled on Twitter, their dreams of being a big reality star dashed, work dries up and ending up feeling depressed and having issues.”

According to The Sun, ''Sammy has the gift of the gab – he does well at work and makes good money. The only reason he’s reconnected with Dani is that she has a lot going for her at the moment – she has money, a clothing range and endorsement deals, he will feel like he’s hit the jackpot.''

The Love Island UK Twitter account spilled the saucy secret, after presenter Caroline Flack revealed earlier in the month that she had begun filming for the ITV show and would soon be meeting the new stars.

"What’s really exciting about this week is that we start filming for Love Island 2019," she divulged to her followers on Instagram.

"And by the end of the week I’m going to have potentially seen the cast for this year, which is really exciting and mad that it’s come around this quick." 

She continued, "So I’ll let you know what happens, it’s going to be a long, hot summer and all that." There's only about three weeks to go until the show prep begins.

During a workout, she added, "I’ve just trained with Bradley Simmons, he put me through utter hell. Making me do weights I should not be lifting, but he says we’ve only got three weeks before Love Island starts, so we’ve got to work hard."

We'll have to work hard to wait another 26 days for the next season's debut. Fingers crossed the producers reveal who the cast are soon enough, we're DYING to see them.

Well, that's it lads.

The final couple  of Love Island 2018 has called it quits so love is offish dead.

Nah jk, they were never gonna get married were they? 

Poor Jack and Dani, they seemed like the most solid and obvs were as they were together the longest.

But Jack took to Instagram last night to announce the news that they were no longer a couple.

Jack Fincham posted about his split from Dani Dyer on Instagram

The pen salesman wrote, ''There is no easy way to say this and it isn't going to be an easy time but me and Dani are not in a relationship anymore. We will always care a lot for each other and have love for each other and I mean that from the bottom of my heart and I wish her nothing but happiness."

He continued, ''We have some amazing memories together and have been through a lot but sometimes things aren't meant to be and we really did try to make it work but it unfortunately didn't and that is life. That's all I have to say, a break up is hard enough as it is for both of us let alone in the public eye so I hope everyone is considerable and understands this.''

Dani meanwhile is keeping schtum on the break up and focusing on the launch of her book, What Would Dani Do?.

PR stunt? Don't even THINK about it.

And sure look, it won't be long until the new batch of Love Island contestants will be everywhere for us to obsess about.
