Viewers of the hit show, that puts a group of young singletons hoping to find love in a luxury Majorca villa, were left feeling sad for the former St Augustine's RC High School, Billington, pupil, when he lost his place in the villa along with three other contestants after fellow islanders chose to save two others.

The four islanders found themselves packing their bags during Thursday’s episode of the ITV2 reality show, after they were revealed to be at risk of being dumped earlier this week following a public vote on the favourite couples.

Hugo and Amy, Sam and Mary, and Tyler and Clarisse were the three couples who received the fewest votes, and it was then up to their fellow islanders to save one girl and one boy.

The remaining boys chose to save Mary, while the girls picked Tyler, meaning the other four were sent home.

And Sam – who coupled up with Mary after his former partner Faye Winter reunited with Teddy Soares – added: “It’s a difficult one to say, but at the same time I’m happy to be going home. My journey has been what it is, and I’ve made some memories that are going to last a lifetime. I literally would not change a thing.”

Sam (23) made his debut in the show as the notorious Casa Amor stint began when the main contestants are tempted to stray from their chosen partners by a new group of lads and girls. Chosen by Faye, Sam's won a place in the main villa but his stay was short lived.

Sam appeared in a live link up on Love Island' s 'Aftersun' last night where he revealed he had no regrets about taking part in the show and wished fellow contestants well.

A keen cricketer and footballer, Sam is a welder who was works at Hanson Cement, formerly Castle Cement,

Love Island airs every evening, apart from Saturdays on ITV2 and streams on the ITV Hub. It began on Monday, June 28th and is expected to run for until the end of August. Viewers vote for their favourite couple who will win a £50,000 cash prize.
