We're fast approaching the final days in the Love Island villa, which means one thing – our least favourite couples are booted out.

See ya...

One dumping we didn't predict was that of Callum Jones and Molly Smith.

The pair were evicted tonight in a shock twist which saw Mike Boateng and partner Priscilla Anyabu saved and are on their way to securing a place in the final.

Callum and Molly fell for each other in Casa Amor and we watched open-mouthed as the tight lipped scaffolder forgot all about Shaughna Phillips and uncharacteristically revealed his feelings for model Molly.

Shaughna's heart was broken and THAT iconic line was forever etched into Love Island history, spawning a million memes.

Congrats, hun.

After his eviction, Callum revealed that despite being in a couple with Shaughna, he wasn't worried about coupling up with Molly.

"As bad as it sounds, I didn’t really think about anything else, I knew I was happy – so I just went with that decision."

He went on to say, "It’s not nice for Shaughna [but] at the end of the day, we were all in there to find something and I’ve found it."

He did admit to being nervous walking back into the villa with Molly, knowing he would have to face the feisty cockney, "I kind of knew Shaughna would be on her own.

"It was nerve-wracking obviously – all I could see were eyes looking at me.

"But it’s what I was feeling at the time and I’m happy."

When asked what it was about Molly that caught his eye, he revealed, "What’s not to like about Molly, do you know what I mean? Literally, everything caught my eye!"

Yes Callum, we think we can see what you mean.

So what's next for the Mancunian couple?

Molly believes they have a future together, saying, "We live close to each other at home, maybe 15 minutes apart, It’s weird we haven’t bumped into each other before."

"We also found out we were on holiday at the same time last year at the same event, how weird is that? We probably crossed paths – I’m a massive believer in fate, law of attraction, all that stuff.

"So maybe it is meant to be."


The pair are in no hurry to make things official with Callum saying," I think we will be, I’m not putting any pressure, or any time limit – It happens when it happens."

Straight forward as ever Callum...
