Fake Michael Griffiths account ‘releases statement’ following THAT Love Island recoupling

Love Island recoupling

by Alex Ross |

After the massive kick off following last year's Casa Amor drama (featuring Georgia 'Loyal babes' Steel and Josh Denzel), we didn't think anything would be able to top it, but the latest Love Island recoupling was one of the most dramatic in the show's history

Despite Curtis Pritchard choosing to recouple with Amy Hart, Michael Griffiths had his head well and truly turned, coupling up with new girl Joanna Chimonides, and in turn leaving Amber Gill to walk back into the villa on her own.

As the nation watched on in UTTER shock, waiting for Amber's response, Michael's 'friends and family', released a statement on Twitter.

Sharing a 'logging out' meme, the first message read, 'Right everyone, see you in a few weeks, it’s been fun.' They then shared another meme of a male throwing away money, writing, 'Throwing away £50k like:'. [sic]

However, despite initially making fun of the situation, the 'family and friends' then decided to back Michael's decision, writing, 'Some thoughts: Like it or not, Michael followed his heart, he confronted Amber several times for being childish. It wasn’t behind her back.

'Anna needs to mind her own business #bye. From now, Curtis giving advice is about as useful as Stevie Wonder taking an eye test'. [sic]

HOWEVER, it has now been revealed that the account shown above is in fact a fake account that has generated more followers than Michael's real Twitter.

Check out the most dramatic Love Island transformations:

Age: 28 From: LondonOccupation: Pharmacist What's your definition of girl code? This is really difficult because the island isn't a normal place, the real world is different. I don't know how close I can get to a girl in a few weeks. If a guy likes me, I'm there for love at the end of the day, not girls.
