Love Island‘s Liam Llewellyn has finally broken his silence in his shocking exit from the show.

The 23-year-old was part of this year’s original cast but left the villa just after six days as he told his fellow islanders he was not himself.

In his first interview since leaving the show, Liam told MailOnline: “I thought I was going to have the summer everyone dreams of but now I live with no regrets, I took a chance but I realized I couldn’t live on TV.”

“I was expected to do things for a TV show and I couldn’t be myself. I didn’t want to do it. It’s a TV show and it’s produced. It’s not all natural . »

“In my head, I was not in the right position to participate in a TV show because that’s what you do. You have to go on dates, do challenges, and you have no control over any of that.


“On my dates, they asked me to rehearse things because it didn’t quite go,” he explained.

“I had many meetings with the executives, the series editor and professional physiologists, but after a few days of feeling what I did, I decided on my own that it was not not good for me to continue.”

Liam admitted he was “very emotional” backstage and said: “It was a big decision to make, and you don’t make those kinds of decisions without having this mental battle with yourself.”

“I was confused and disgusted with how I felt. My body was there but my head was miles away. I couldn’t limit myself to just one word but I was so overwhelmed.

“I’ve never felt like this before and I don’t think I ever will because being on Love Island is the greatest stage of all.”

“When you have that intuition and you think you’re not yourself, you can’t be afraid to make that choice, even if it’s scary at first.”

Liam was originally in a relationship with Gemma Owen on the show, who is currently partnered with Luca Bish.

In recent weeks, Luca has been criticized for his behavior on the show.

However, Liam insisted that Luca looks nothing like how he is depicted on Love Island.

“I know Luca and what he really is and that’s not how he comes across,” he said.

“It’s hard for me to sit here and watch this while viewers make up their minds when if you spent 10 minutes with him that would change.”

“Any opinions people have about the show, I think you have no idea, I think if only you knew. You see such a small segment that they really don’t know what’s going on.

“It’s a TV show, they have to do drama and turn something small into something big and viewers get lost in all of that.”

Liam also expressed his sympathy for Jacques O’Neill, who left the show earlier this month after admitting he was struggling with his emotions.

Love Island continues tonight at 9 p.m. on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
