Breaking: Jacques has QUIT Love Island 2022 and has left the villa

He will share his reasoning with the Islanders tonight

Jacques O’Neill has quit the Love Island 2022 villa.

A Love Island spokesperson said: “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.”

This comes as Jacques had received backlash for his treatment of fellow Islander Paige Thorne in Casa Amor episodes of the show and following. In a preview of tonight’s episode, it looks as though Jacques gets heated with new bombshell Adam Collard, after hearing him talking about him behind his back.

In a preview clip of Tuesday’s episode, Jacques was seen going for a chat with Paige after Gemma told him: “He [Adam] has been proper slagging you off.” Speaking to Paige in the garden, he said: “Has Adam been slagging me off? Who the fuck is he? He’s just another geezer who’s already been on the show. He’s fucking nothing mate.”

It appears that since this confrontation, Jacques has made the decision to quit Love Island 2022. First look from tonight sees tension rise with Jacques, before he tearfully pulls Paige for chat and says: “I wish I could finish my journey off with you in here.”

More on this to come.
