The official hall of fame for the shortest Love Island appearances ever

This lot won’t be securing a clothing line


We’ve just seen Ollie Williams quit the Love Island villa after just three days. And tbh, that was a poor effort from him. He’s probably gained no Instagram followers and will not be securing a deal with BoohooMAN. What a waste of time.

But you might be shocked to know there are actually past Islanders who lasted even less time in the villa than he did. This is the official hall of fame for the shortest Love Island appearances ever.

Chris Baxter – Three days

Chris Baxter very briefly appeared in series one of Love Island in 2015. He entered the villa on day 11 and was dumped on day 14.

This season wasn’t the first time Love Island has cast twins. However, the series one twins put on a poor show. They arrived on day three and were swiftly double dumped on day six.

Idris Virgo – Three days

Remember Idris? He dressed up as a fireman in one of the challenges, but that’s about it. He appeared in series four, arriving on day 37, and then got dumped on day 40. Nobody has heard from him since.

Kieran Nicholls – Three days

This year’s winter contestant Ollie Williams dramatically quit the show after just three days. He arrived on day one and on day three said he was leaving because he’s still in love with his ex. Tragic.

James Khan – Two days

Yes, there is a fourth Casa Amor 2017 victim. Rob Lipsett (Day 26 – Day 28). Gone, quickly forgotten.

Shannen also couldn’t make it through the wrath that was Casa Amor 2017. God it really was tough on them wasn’t it? She entered on day 26 and was dumped on day 28.

And here is the final Casa Amor 2017 soldier who fell. Steve Ball was also in the villa for just two days, from day 26 to day 28.

Was Ben Porter even on Love Island? He has 2,000 Instagram followers and only one screenshot of him on the show exists on the internet. The only way of really knowing he was on the show is that there is a Love Island Wiki Fandom page for him. Apparently he was series one from day 32 to 33.

Poppy Farnan – One day

Poppy Farnan was also a one day wonder. Exactly the same as Ben Porter, she had one of shortest Love Island appearances ever. Poppy was on series one from day 32 to 33. Her and Ben were dumped together.

Oliver Maxwell Fernandez – One day

This face rings zero bells?? Oliver Maxwell Fernandez is said to have been on series two from day 30 to day 31. I’m not convinced he ever existed.

Malia Arkian – Approximately 20 minutes

Malia Arkian provided possibly one of the most shocking Love Island moments ever. She was in season two, entering and leaving the villa on day seven. She came in, said she fancied Scott (who was coupled up with Kady) and then accused Kady of spilling a drink down her. They had a massive fight and Malia was removed after approximately 20 minutes in the villa.

That has earned her the top spot in the hall of fame of shortest Love Island appearances ever.
