Who left Love Island? Callum Macleod is first cast member to leave villa
He says he wouldn’t do anything differently
He's had so little airtime that fans are wondering if it's a conspiracy, so it's no surprise that Bridgend's finest Callum Macleod was the first islander to be booted off Love Island 2019. Honestly, tomorrow we'll all be asking: Who left Love Island last night?
Callum Macleod joins the ranks of Kendall Rae-Knight and a load of other islanders we literally can't remember.
Still, for four days in the villa he's managed to go from 26k to 118k followers on Instagram.
After leaving the villa, he's said he wouldn't do anything differently, and that anyone except Curtis could have been the person who left Love Island tonight.
However, he will actually get some screen time on Sunday's first episode of Love Island Aftersun.
Here's what Callum Macleod, who left Love Island tonight, said in his exit interview:
What were some of the highlights of going in?
Some of the highlights – meeting the people. I had a great friendship with Curtis. The challenges were great, and the whole experience of getting to know everyone.
If you had your time again would you have coupled up as you did?
I don’t think I would do anything differently in person. I genuinely think I was true to myself. I didn’t fake anything. It’s just unfortunate that there was no one in there that I connected with. There were definitely people in there that I was closer to and maybe if the opportunity had come to speak to those people more it might have been a little bit different. But ultimately I’m 28, I’ve had a couple of serious relationships, I know what I’m looking for and it just didn’t come through the door on this occasion.
Who would you say you were closest to?
Definitely Curtis. Literally from the minute he walked in, we just had a great time. It felt like I had known him for ages, he’s a good guy.
The aim of the game is to find love but is there anyone you would say is just game playing?
I don’t think I was in there long enough to work that out. It was too hard to work out. A lot of us were in friendship couples. There was only one solid couple in there, and maybe a couple of love triangles. It’s too hard to tell, but I didn’t notice it if I’m honest.
What was the most challenging aspect of being in the villa?
To be honest I just really enjoyed it. It’s the sense of unknown because you’re cut off from the outside world, but once you’re in that mindset, it’s actually quite nice. After a day you switch off and get used to not having a mobile phone etc. I thought it was really refreshing and enjoyed it.
If you could see one of the couples going the distance, who would it be?
Definitely Curtis and Amy – they’re so well suited, it’s like they’ve been together for ages already. You could definitely see them working on the outside. I hope they do. They’re both really good people.
How surprised were you by the recoupling? Did you expect to leave?
We all knew there would be a couple of surprising choices because we didn’t have a clue who would pick who. It could have gone either way.
I definitely saw it coming. Apart from Curtis, anyone of us could have gone. We weren’t sure what the girls were thinking, I didn’t know what was being said, but like I keep saying, I didn’t want to force it and fake it because I didn’t think it was the correct manner to do so.
