Love Island reject George Rains has come under fire for “using” fellow Love Islander Yewande Biala to stay in the limelight.
George failed to make an impact when he joined the cast of Love Island during Casa Amor. Despite being brought back to the main villa by OG Islander Lucie Donlan, he lasted just a few days before getting dumped by the surfer chick and swiftly leaving the show.
He was then linked to another original cast member, Yewande Biala, but he’s now been accused of faking the romance to stay in the limelight and had been dating Instagram model Nicole Tamerian while he was seeing Yewande.

George and Yewande seemed happy to feed the rumours they were dating back in September, both sharing pictures of each other on their social media accounts, with one tell-tale video by Yewande showing her foundation clearly visible on George’s lip and nose.
A source told the same publication at the time, “George didn’t have much luck in the villa with Lucie but kept trying with her once she left.
“He used to comment on all her pictures and tried to pin her down for a date but it didn’t happen.
“He’s moved onto Yewande now because he knows she’s got a big following. It’s almost like he will do anything to stay in the limelight."
Closer has contacted George's representatives for comment.
