Dumped Love Island star Joe Garratt has been shrugging off the drama over his stint in the show and was all smiles as he greeted fans after leaving the villa.

Sandwich seller Joe, 22, was torn away from his partner Lucie Donlan and dumped from the show this week.

The dumping came after the Londoner was bombarded with viciously trolled and even accused of being “abusive” over his treatment of the surfer babe.

However, Joe has been trying not to let all the fuss get him down and was in a chipper mood as he headed home.

One of the fans who spotted him at Palma airport in Majorca got chatting to the telly star, who seemed happy and relaxed and was in a “good mood” as he waited to board his flight.

She told Mirror Online: “He seemed like a really nice guy!”

She added that he came across as “lovely and genuine”.

Since his shock departure, Joe’s family have spoken out to claim he was “unfairly edited.”

In a message posted on his behalf, they explained: “Speaking on behalf of Joe’s best friends, we acknowledge Joe will come out to some warranted criticism.

“However, we deem the majority of it to be unfair and non representative of Joe’s true character.

“The producers have the ability to show someone in a particular light, choosing just 45 mins of footage from 24 hours to tell a certain narrative.”

Lucie and Joe kept fans hooked with their on/off romance

Lucie has been left distraught after Joe was dumped from the villa last night amid rising tensions with the other girls.

She’s fallen out with Amy Hart, and despite several attempts to make up, Lucie seems to have become even more isolated.

In tonight’s episode, she is seen sobbing on camera and worried viewers have flocked to Ofcom to complain about her treatment by the other contestants.

Love Island bosses have released a new statement insisting all the stars of the show are being given the right support.

It reads: “We take the emotional well-being of all the Islanders extremely seriously.

“We have dedicated welfare producers and psychological support on hand at all times who monitor and regularly speak to all of the Islanders in private and off camera, especially if someone appears to be upset.

“All the Islanders are therefore fully supported by the professionals on site and by their friends in the villa.

“This means Islanders are always able to reach out and talk to someone if they feel the need.

“We will of course continue to monitor all of our Islanders in line with our robust protocols.

“Love Island holds a mirror up to relationships and all the different dynamics that go with them.”
