We can't keep up with the twists and turns Love Island has been offering us lately.

Between Dr Alex snubbing the babe that is Alexandra, then her trying it on with Paul, but he's holding out to see what happens with old Laura – *ARGH and breathe* – it has been a whirlwind this past week. 

Now, it has been confirmed that two people have chosen to leave the villa.

You've probably guessed it from their cheeky shenanigans in the bathroom…Georgia and Sam have quit.

Their decision came after an intense recoupling, which will be aired this evening.

According to reports, nobody could deter the pair from walking.

Georgia and Sam were "unhappy" with the outcome of the recoupling so they packed their suitcases shortly after filming ended, alleged The Mirror.

A source dished the dirt to the publication, saying: 

"They filmed the recoupling and afterwards Sam and Georgia weren't happy so walked out of the villa.

"None of their fellow Islanders could persuade them to stay. The explosive scenes will be aired tomorrow [Thursday] or Friday."

The other contestants were "stunned" by the news.

However, it doesn't come entirely as a surprise.

Georgia and Sam were forced earlier in the week to split or face eviction.

Initially, they chose to break-up and remain in the villa, with intentions of getting to know the new faces.

Clearly, it has become too much for the pair after we saw Georgia confess that they had broken the rules in the bathroom.

In addition to the explosive scenes, we are set to be treated to this evening – their departure makes sense.

Get the popcorn ready, their exit is expected to air tonight or Friday.



Being unhappy in work can be very difficult.

You wake up every weekday morning with dread, and sometimes your issues can spiral into a knotted web if they don't become resolved.

So much so, you think the best thing for you is to quit.

But, hold your horses. Don't do anything rash and have a long sit-down with yourself before you make any major life decisions.

We totally get that it can feel like you're falling into a deep hole, but rather than trying to escape, ask yourself this question (while you have a bag of chocolate in one hand and a glass of vino in the other):

'What exactly is making me miserable?'

New York Times bestselling author and happiness guru, Gretchen Rubin, says that this question might seem quite obvious, but it can often be overlooked.

"This sounds so obvious," she told Business Insider. "But I've found over and over, it really helps people."

According to the guru, you need to go through every aspect of your job with a fine tooth comb until you hit the exact thing that's making you unhappy.

"You're walking in the door in the morning and you're thinking, 'Oh, you know what? I don't like this anymore. This is a drag. I don't want to be here,” explains Gretchen.

"But there are a lot of reasons that that could be true. And the solutions that you would try in order to fix the situation would be really different depending on what the problem is."

So whether it's your working hours, a tricky co-worker or your salary, try to tackle the problem on a step-by-step basis.

“Once you actually pinpoint the precise nature of what's driving you crazy, it's often a lot easier to fix it than you think."

Talk to that disgruntled colleague; see if you can work flexible hours or talk to your boss about bumping up your salary.

You never know what a simple chat can do for you.


Whether you started smoking in college or you're a life-long pack-a-day person, quitting the habit can be really tough.

It's going to be a process, but once you have the right game plan and will power, you can kick the habit for good.

Many people are fond of the START method, so hopefully by following this plan, you'll have a cigarette-free 2017.

S – Set a quit date

First, choose a quit date. Try pick a date within the next two weeks so you can prepare yourself enough, yet, you won't lose your motivation.

If you normally smoke a lot when in work, try pick a weekend to quit so you have a day or two to get used to it.

T – Tell your friends, family and co-workers

By telling people that are close to you, you will be able to get their encouragement and support, as well as give yourself a little bit of motivation.

And if possible, try find a quit buddy so you can go through the motions together.

A – Anticipate the challenges

On average, people who begin to smoke again do so within the first three months of quitting.

Prepare for the challenges, prepare for the drawbacks and prepare for the cravings. So many cravings.

R – Remove cigarettes, tobacco and all other products

Remove them from your home, work, and your car. If your sitting in rush hour traffic and find a cigarette in the glove box, it'll be a mighty temptation.

And freshen everything up too; wash your clothes, clean your curtains, steam your furniture.

T – Talk to your doctor

Your doctor will be able to prescribe medication to help with any withdrawals you might have.

If you're not able to get to your doctor, a simple chat with your local pharmacist on whether you should take any nicotine gum or lozenges will help massively.

If bets are anything to go by, it looks like Niall Horan could be the next member to leave One Direction.

Despite Niall saying last week that a reunion is in the "foreseeable future," bookies believe that he'll soon say goodbye to the lads.

Since the Mullingar man dropped This Town, there has been a huge surge in bets on him quitting.

Tim Reynolds, Sun Bets spokesperson told The Sun: "We've seen money this morning on Niall to leave One Direction, and a most of it has come from Irish punters, we think they might know something we don't.

"We had Niall as the 5/1 outsider to be the next band member to leave 1D, but after the number of bets we've seen today we've now suspended betting.

"One way or another, I suspect this could be the end of One Direction," he added.


A lot of the original cast of Geordie Shore have moved onto greener pastures, and after Holly revealed that she's ready to quit the show, it looks like her co-star Scotty T is going to follow suit.

The reality star has revealed that he's going to give himself two more years to party with the Geordies until he calls it quits.

"I don’t intend to leave Geordie Shore until I’m 30. There are definitely a couple of years of Scotty T left partying," he told The Sun.

"At the minute, this is my time to make money for the next few years, to set myself up for the rest of my life.

"I'm not going to go on like this, I'm still going to be me, I'm still going to go wild, but there's going to be a point when I need to calm down," he added.

Two more years, ladies. That's all we have.



Uh-oh… Things don't seem rosy at all for Demi Lovato at the moment.

Not only did she break up with her boyfriend of six years last week, but now she's announced that she's quitting Twitter and Instagram.

She took to social media last night to say she doesn't like the response she receives on some of her posts, and then later took to Twitter to share a message about why she's quitting Twitter and Instagram for good.

“But why do people actually give a f**k what I say?? like if you don’t care the gtfo haha (sic).

"That one time I started my own charity providing mental health care for people who can’t afford it and this is what y’all talk about,” she shared.

She then told her followers to follow her on Snapchat to keep them updated.



Cara Delevingne has spoken out about her future in modelling, and it doesn't sound promising. 

The model/actress said that the modelling industry has now resulted in her hating her body after first beginning when she was just ten years old.

Although she seems to be at the top of her model game, Cara has spoken out and said she is "not doing fashion work any more".

She opened up about her struggles as a catwalk model for some of the biggest brands in the world saying it made her 'hate' her body. 

In an interview with The Times, Cara said ""It didn't make me grow at all as a human being. And I kind of forgot how young I was. I felt so old."

She continued saying "I was, like, fight and flight for months. Just constantly on edge. It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse."

Cara also explained how the stress of the catwalk model life also led her to developing psoriasis which is a skin disease that can be quite uncomfortable for sufferers.

She said: "People would put on gloves and not want to touch me because they thought it was, like, leprosy or something."

It seems the 23-year-old is now going to focus all of her energy on her new acting career. She holds one of the lead roles in Paper Towns and she is also starring in next year's hugely anticipated movie Suicide Squad.
