Liam Llewellyn has QUIT Love Island in tonight's show, leaving his fellow co-stars stunned.

Viewers will see the Welsh contestant, 22, leave his housemates stunned after asking them to gather around the fire pit and delivering a 'life-changing' reason why he's chosen to leave ahead of tonight's recoupling.

A show insider has told The Sun, "The reasons behind it are unknown so viewers will be glued to their screens tonight to find out."

Liam had originally been chosen to couple up with Gemma Owen by the public but was left single after 'Italian snack' Davide Sanclimenti entered the villa ad it was pretty much game over for Liam with Gemma.

He then proceeded to go on dates with the two new bombshell Islanders Afia Tonkmor and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, but the girls later admitted they were interested in other Islanders.

Turns out that Gemma and Liam have more in common than we first thought - they've both got famous sportsmen in their family.

Yep, Liam's dad is Welsh rugby star David Llewellyn who was huge in the 1990s but is now retired.

While we all know that former Manchester United and England player Michael Owen is Gemma's dad (she still hasn't let it slip in the villa, yet), Liam has kept his rugby link on the down low.

David has been full of praise for his boy though, telling Wales Online, "It brings a lot of emotions out in you as his father.

"I'm missing him for one.

"But I'm very proud of him. I didn't realise how big this was until this week. It's big in America, Canada and all around the world."

Could this revelation bring Gemma and Liam back again? We kinda hope not, as he was picked to go on a date with both Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Afia Tonkmor. A man in demand.
