Love Island fans will be shocked to hear that Jacques O'Neill has quit the villa.

The news comes following his rocky relationship with Paige Thorne after his time in Casa Amor.

Not much is known about the exact reason for his decision but a Love Island spokesperson confirmed the news in a statement by saying, "Jacques has made the decision to leave the Villa.

"He will explain his reasons to the Islanders during tonight’s episode. We fully support his decision and look forward to seeing what’s next for Jacques."

Arriving as an early bombshell in the 2022 series, and as Gemma Owen's ex, Jacques set his sight on Paige and the pair have been coupled up ever since.

However during Casa Amor he had the ultimate test and failed because Casa Amor bombshell Cheyenna Michelle Kerr exposed what really happened while the OG girls were away.

Jacques and Paige then had an argument after he failed to apologise about his behaviour and instead admitted he wanted to "test himself".

The drama then resulted in Jacques receiving a lot of backlash and it led to his family speaking out and revealing that the 2022 has ADHD.

"Jacques was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 9 years old. By no means is this a get out clause for his actions but it is to show that he can fundamentally struggle with his emotions at times," they explained.

"He is an amazing person who I'm proud to call my friend/little brother. All the hate thrown towards Jacques doesn't go to him directly….It comes to his loved ones who have always supported him and not just whilst he is on Love Island.

"Love Island, although real. Is still a show where the producers do have control and we see 45minutes out of the 1440 in 24hours. Please be kind♥️."

The following day Jacques apologised and it appeared that Paige had forgiven Jacques but in last night's teaser it seems that Jacques and Adam Collard (who has returned four years following his first stint), have a row.

Jacques' exit comes weeks after Liam Llewellyn quit the show.
