Liam Llewellyn has quit ITV's Love Island after less than a week as he says he hasn't been "100% Liam".

The masters student, from Newport in south Wales, told his fellow contestants: “Obviously we all came here for the same reason but I haven’t really been feeling I have been giving 100% Liam.

"I know what 100% Liam looks like and I am miles off that.”

He added: “I’ve been thinking long and hard, this isn’t a spur of the moment thing. “I have made the decision that I am going to leave the villa. It has been a breeze, and absolute ball.”

The contestants were in tears as they said their goodbyes to the Welshman.

Speaking in the beach hut, fellow contestant Andrew said: “We all love him, we are all going to se him when he gets out 100%. It sucks but he has to do what he has to do.”

“I absolutely adore Liam and I hope he does find someone special one day," contestant Tasha said. "We will definitely have a cheers to Liam tonight because he will definitely be missed.”

Liam has been single in the villa after the arrival of Davide who chose Gemma to couple up with. She left Liam for the Italian.

Ahead of going into the villa, Liam said: "I think Love Island is a great opportunity to meet someone, you’re in with a load of different types, so you can get to grips with what you really like about people."

He added friends and family would describe him as: "Quite generous, quite caring, happy, chatty, chirpy, bubbly. I wear my heart on my sleeve, I can’t hide how I feel about anyone. I’m probably quite emotional as well come to think about it."

Love Island airs on Friday night at 9pm on ITV2 and the ITV Hub
