We are a few weeks into this year's series of Love Island and it has come to the point where Islanders are being dumped from the villa at an alarming rate.

Sam Taylor was the first to be booted out, followed by Munveer Jabbal and Patsy Field who were sent packing when their Love Island 2024 villa mates were forced to pick who they wanted gone.

Sad times for them but fab times for us here at Closer HQ as it means we can pull them for a chat, and that's exactly what we did with Munveer and Patsy.

It turns out that Patsy's short-lived Love Island experience almost never came to fruition because the office administrator found herself a tad, let's say distracted, when she was in her holding villa.

Although Munveer claimed the week he spent in a hotel BEFORE starting Love Island was "tedious", Patsy disagreed.

"Mine was really fun," she confessed before dishing all the deets on what made her stay so enjoyable.

"There was a holiday rep, like a young man working as a holiday rep and he was really onto me," Patsy confessed.

Not Patsy finding romance before she even stepped foot into the villa.

She added, "I was actually thinking 'shall I just scrap Love Island and go running off with the holiday rep?'" - and, honestly, we don't even think she was joking.

"Luca," she went on, "I think his name was, if you're out there I'm coming for you. I'm coming back for you."

Just IMAGINE the tea if it was in fact Luca Bish of Love Island 2022 fame who had decided to ditch the influencer lifestyle and sun it up as a holiday rep in Spain instead.

Unlikely, but stranger things have happened. Former TOWIE icon Joey Essex taking part in Love Island for example.
