Savanna Darnell

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."

Our mammies are constantly warning us about leaving our drinks down on a night out.

The reminder about keeping an eye on your drinks and buying your own is one we will never get tired of as it's so important.

This is what Love Island's Savanna Darnell is warning her followers of.

Sadly, a Christmas night out did not go according to plan for the TV star.

On Instagram, she explained what had happened and issued a reminder to everyone.

"Just a quick update. I’m fine, thanks for everyone who’s asking. I went out the other night and my drink was spiked. I cannot remember one single thing from the night, my body couldn’t function properly, I collapsed and it was a horrendous experience."

"It’s a scary thing. So PLEASE make sure you always watch your drinks on nights out!!! Be careful and surround yourself with the right people."

We will definitely be tightening up our watch on our drinks.

We are glad that Savanna is feeling better and has recovered from a very scary experience.

All is not as it seems in that Love Island villa.

First we learned that 99.5% of Samira's journey was edited out, plus not to mention 99.9% of her relationship with Frankie.

And now ex-contestant Savanna Darnell – yer one with the fab hair who got about four seconds of air time – has dropped another bombshell.

She appeared on Lewys Balls YouTube channel where she nattered away about all things Love Island.

Oh, and mentioned that she had been cosying up to one Mr Wes Nelson.

Yep, Megan's boyf wasn't as loyal as he made out to be. And we are shook.

"Me and Wes actually really got on. We shared a bed – they never showed that. We had a cuddle, we were singing the whole time, up till stupid o' clock giggling and laughing in bed – that's what you didn't see hunnies."

So the producers simply edited all their time together out?

''They just never wanted to show it,'' Savanna said. 

This hasn't been the only time recently that the ITV show has been hit with claims of deceptive editing and re-shooting.

One eagle-eyed viewer took to Twitter to expose a scene that looked like it had been filmed twice if you look at Georgia's manicure from one frame to the next. 

Bit sus, no?

As well as continuity issues a la Georgia's nails, ''The Kiss'', which quickly became the most saturated plot line of the series, was also put under the microscope.

Because I am sad and have no life, I've watched the clip below quite a few times and I'm still none the wiser.

Is the first kiss them saying hello and the second kiss them saying goodbye?

Watch the vid below and deicide for yourselves, it's a tricky one.

However, one thing is one million percent for sure: Love Island is a reality TV show and the producers know we want all the dramz, so they edit the footage to give us that.

Fair enough we say, but if any producers are reading this, we beg you – don't make us hear ''I'm loyal babes, I'm real, that's just who I am'' one more time. We just can't.
