Dumped Love Island star Joe Garratt has gone into hiding after being axed from the show.
Joe, 22, was dramatically split from his partner Lucie Donlan in emotional scenes tonight as only one person from each at-risk couples was saved.
Lucie got to stay along with Anton, and Joe got booted with the Geordie hunk’s partner Elma.
He was seen leaving the villa with his suitcase before disappearing off-screen.
The dramatic scenes were filmed yesterday and the sandwich seller is now holed up in a hotel in Majorca where he will remain in hiding before flying back to Britain.
It is standard procedure for the stars of the show to leave the villa and go to a hotel, where they are looked after by show staff until it’s time to go home.
ITV bosses brought in new standards of aftercare this year, so it’s likely they are being extra protective of Joe following his vicious trolling.
He was bombarded which sickening messages online over his rocky romance with Lucie, and was even accused of being “abusive” for telling her not to spend so much time with love rival Tommy Fury.
His departure has left Lucie distraught and she appears to be on the verge of quitting the show.
In a teaser for tomorrow night’s show, Lucie is seen considering an exit of her own as she’s unsure how she will cope without Joe.
She breaks down in tears as she confesses there’s now only two people in the villa she trusts – Tommy and Anton.
Many fans were left fuming over Amy’s treatment of Lucie in tonight’s show, as they pointed out they spotted her pulling a face when Lucie was saved.
Love Island airs all week at 9pm on ITV2.
