Joe Garratt

Ex-Love Island star Joe Garratt has sent the internet into a frenzy after teasing a return to the Spanish villa via his Instagram stories.

The star was coupled up with Lucie Donlan but was voted off the show last week alongside Elma Pazar, which cut their romance short and left Lucie single.

The sandwich seller headed back to the UK, but is on his way BACK to Majorca after sharing a mysterious Instagram photo.

The photo shows an airport screen with the word 'Palma' alongside a palm tree and love heart emoji. It's definitely a hint if we've ever seen one. The second image showed him touching down in Palma de Mallorca.

His news comes just as Casa Amor is kicking off, with 12 new singletons set to join the show in a rival villa.

Joe previously revealed that he would wait for surfer chick Lucie on the outside, but she's partnered up with fellow single contestant Anton at the moment.

After he was voted off by the public, he told The Sun; “I would love to get more time with Lucy in there. It is such an amazing experience and when you’re doing it with someone you care about its just perfect.

“I would never rule out the possibility of going back in. I met somebody who I fell for so I have already won that in that sense. I would love to go back in and see her."

He added: “I think that would be really nice and I think she would love that.”

Would Lucie be happy to see her former couple partner, who was besotted with her? Or is she moving on?

She caused a stir in the villa this week after saying "Never say never" to a future romance with Tommy. Molly-Mae has since asked for boundaries to be set on their friendship, which Lucie definitely isn't pleased about.

Lucie has often mentioned that she's hoping the surfer dude of her dreams will walk through the door, which doesn't sound positive for city boy Joe. Tune in tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media for updates.

A study has figured out which of the Love Islander contestants have fake Instagram followers, and the answer is ALL of them. But who has the most?

Amber Gill apparently has 535,000 followers on Instagram, which will surely increase when she leaves the Spanish villa, but she may want to ditch some of the fake ones.

Data analysis carried out by Instagram influencer marketing service Takumi allege that the Geordie had the highest percentage of fake followers when she entered the villa.

Herself and new boy Jordan Hames both had 65 percent fake followers, which is pretty damn dodgy if you ask us.

The recently axed Islander Joe Garratt (412,000 followers) and Yewande Biala (365,000) both had 64 percent fake followers, and Michael Griffiths (478,000) had 63 percent.

Maura Higgins had the lowest number, but almost half of her 322,000 followers aren't real. Takumi’s CEO Adam Williams made a statement on the results:

"The results of our research show the extent to which fraudulent activity can take place on Instagram. Yet influencers are still powerful marketing tools due to their ability to resonate deeply with their core audiences."

He continued;

"Brands must carefully consider who they work with and how they assess their worth. The scale of someone’s social media following doesn’t necessarily equate to real influence among consumers."

In order of who had the most followers, the list was;

Amber Rose Gill, Jordan Hames, Joe Garratt, Yewande Biala, Michael Griffiths, Callum McLeon, Tommy Fury, Danny Williams, Amy Hart, Lucie Donlan, Anna Vakili, Molly-Mae Hague, Anton Danyluk, Curtis Pritchard, Tom Walker and Maura Higgins.

Every contestant ranged between the 45 percent to 65 percent fake follower mark, which is shameful.

The amount of Instagram followers heavily influence who the stars work with as influencers when they leave the show.

Love Island's Joe Garratt has released a statement regarding his treatment of Lucie Donlan in the villa, and it's fairly stubborn.

The sandwich maker has refused to apologise for his behaviour on the show, and insisted that he never tried to 'control' his fellow contestant.

Over 300 complaints were made to television watchdog Ofcom regarding how Lucie was treated by the hit ITV2 programme.

Joe was axed this week along with Elma Pazar, and left Lucie in tears after telling her to avoid male friendships on the show, mainly with Tommy Fury.

The 22-year-old has since denied any wrongdoing, telling The Sun; “I didn’t manipulate or abuse her and I’m gutted it’s been perceived that way.

“I’d do everything and anything to help her as she had a hard time in there and didn’t get on with the girls. I thought I did right.”

He also had no idea that "snakey" Amy Hart was slagging Lucie off behind her back.

The 21-year-old surfer chick broke down several times on Love Island, leading to criticism of ITV for a perceived failure to offer her guidance and support.

The broadcaster insisted that it provided psychological support to any upset contestants.

Joe was targeted for telling Lucie to avoid other boys on te show, which led to Women's Aid to release a statement about his 'abusive behaviour'.

Joe has refused to apologise, but admitted that he “may have worded things wrong”;

“I may have worded things wrong and the cameras are on you 24/7. I’m young and inexperienced. I’m not going to say sorry," he added. 

"I didn’t know how I was coming across on the outside. I’d no idea I was being perceived in that sense.”

Concerns over Lucie's well-being come amid heightened worries over the welfare of reality TV stars. 

Two high-profile suicides of ex-Love Island contestants, 32-year-old Sophie Gradon and 26-year-old Mike Thalassitis , have led to widespread criticism of the show. 

Bosses of ITV have also been slated for failing to show accurate portrayals of sexual orientations, gender-identities, body diversity or racial representation on the show.

MPs on the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee have launched an inquiry into the problems surrounding reality TV.

Love Island's Joe Garratt has been hidden in a 'safehouse' since he was voted off the show after severe viewer backlash to his relationship with Lucie Donlan.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old has been transferred to another location with two security guards and has been briefed about the online fury over his apparent 'possessive' behaviour towards Lucie.

"Joe has been in the safehouse since leaving the villa," an insider from the hit ITV reality show told the publication. Joe's friends and family have slammed the "unfair editing" of the show.

“There has been a backlash against him and as part of ITV’s new duty of care, they’re doing everything they can to help him deal with it when he comes out.”

Lucie was devastated after her coupling partner was voted off the island, along with Elma Pazar. The surfer spoke to cameras after his eviction, saying;

"I'm gutted. You could clearly see that me and Joe had feelings for each other. I don't know what I'll do without Joe. He's literally been my rock in here."

Joe promised to wait for the 21-year-old model/surfer outside of the Spanish villa. Joe's mum is said to be 'devastated' by the claims that her son is emotionally controlling Lucie.

The sandwich maker fell hard for the Cornish gal in the villa but was booted out, thanks to fellow islanders saying himself and Lucie weren't compatible.

Speaking to the Mail Online, Joe's mum said: "I know my son and he’s not like how he’s being portrayed."

Women's Aid charity expressed their concern over Joe's actions, and viewers branded his behaviour "abusive", after he told her that her male friendships were 'weird' and that he wanted her to bond with the girls instead.

His mum, Rachel, has denied the claims; "Both myself and his sister are his best friends. He doesn’t emotionally control anyone. What has been said in the newspapers today is just sheer rubbish, that is not my boy."

She continued: "I see him every day of the week and there’s no way he would make a girl cry. He’s a normal, loving 22-year-old lad."

She described his everyday life as a reason for his behaviour being different to what he was portrayed as on the show, which is a bit irrelevant? You can go to the gym and be emotionally controlling but alright…

"He’s got hundreds of friends, he goes to the gym every day. They all love him. He goes and plays rugby at the local club, they all love him.

"No friend he’s got, boy or girl, nor any of his ex-girlfriends have got a bad word to say about him," she added. "It’s a real shame this has happened."

The ITV2 show has received over 800 Ofcom complaints over Joe's relationship attitude toward Lucie. Women's Aid described Joe as having "possessive behaviour."

Donlan’s mum has also come out in support of her daughter's relationship with Joe. Speaking to the MailOnline, Celine said that her daughter is “very happy” on the show

Celine also praised ITV for the support they've been giving to both Lucie and the family.

"Lucie should stay on the show," she said.

"We've got no worries over her what so ever, she's very happy. The support given to her and us as a family by ITV has been amazing."

The sandwich seller is now holed up in a Majorcan hotel where he will remain in hiding before flying home to the UK. This is standard Love Island procedure for the reality stars.

ITV bosses brought in new standards of aftercare this year, so it's looking likely that they are protecting Joe from the online anger against him.

He was bombarded with furious messages online over his romance with Lucie, and was accused of being "abusive" for asking her to spend less time with her friend, Tommy Fury.

Lucie is now distraught, and appears to be on the verge of voluntarily leaving the show. Lucie isn't sure how she'll cope without her partner, and is shown in tears in a clip from tonight's episode.

Many fans were also left raging over Amy's treatment of Lucie, after spotting her pulling a face when Lucie was saved.

We need to talk about the absurd behaviour of Joe from Love Island, which is starting to give us MAJOR Joe Goldberg from You vibes.

Reminder: Joe Goldberg is the infamous stalker/murderer who narrated the Netflix show involving his obsession with Guinevere Beck, a poetry major.

It begins with a few hundred red flags, and escalates with terrible consequences. Love Island's Joe Garratt seems to believe that he has some type of claim on Lucie, despite knowing her 24 HOURS.

What if Joe Garrett ends up trapping Lucie in a glass box and murdering her so that she doesn't end up with boxer Tommy Fury?

Lucie is now coupled with Tommy despite herself and Joe getting on extremely well, with flanter flying.

Tommy had to choose a lady, and chose the 21-year-old surfer/model, because all the boys are addicted to her. Joe's reaction was that of a borderline possessive psycho boyfriend.

Mr Garratt, future stalker, is now acting as if Lucie should have something to feel guilty about, and we're THIS CLOSE to cancelling him forever.

We've seen his type before, the jealous guy who loses his cool when he even sees you speaking to another man.

Then he acts as if it's your fault, rather than realising it's his own lack of self-worth driving these jealous and damaging emotions. We see you, Joe. 

The chap is seriously about to propose to a girl he's known one day, and is clearly just in lust with the gorgeous Lucie and sees winning her as a competition, as all the other boys want her too.

The sandwich seller has become ridiculously attached to the surfer in a short space of time, and viewers of the show were deeply concerned about his attitude.

Joe told Lucie that he "didn't know if he could trust her" with absolutely zero evidence that she isn't a loyal or compassionate person. Poor Lucie was left in tears as she was forced to choose between Tommy and Joe.

Amy and Curtis rightfully pointed out to the blonde beauty that it's WAY too early to cut off her options, and Joe seems keen to lock her down like she's a prize-winning horse or something. 

Rather than choose who to sleep in a bed with, Lucie ended up on the couch. She can't even sleep in a damn BED without guilt because of Joe.

She then told Tommy that she's swaying towards Garratt, who was manipulating her the entire time.

While the caterer isn't yet in the same league as Joe Goldberg, played too well by Penn Badgley, they both have similar behaviours after meeting the girl of their dreams.

Joe Goldberg comes across as endlessly charming and caring, which the Islander has been trying with Lucie to win her heart, but they take down anyone who stands in their way.

Of course, Joe Garratt isn't a serial killer, but it's important to spot the red flags early on in relationships like this. 

Twitter was aflame with viewers slamming Joe's behaviour and comparing him to darker characters from film and screen.

While Twitter are showing a sense of humour about it, the point is to remain aware of the traits of obsessive people. as red flags are (sometimes!) a precursor for more serious actions.

Who knows how Joe would react, but we're guessing very very very badly. He has the emotional capacity of a two-year-old, and it's tantrum o'clock.

Lucie has still got a few days left to choose her man to couple up with, and plenty more twists and turns are due to come. 

The first dumping will come at the end of the week, and stunning model Molly-Mae Hague has landed in the villa to stir things up.

Time will tell what drama will happen between the love triangle of Joe, Lucie and Tommy. Maybe we'll find out tonight?
