Olivia Hawkins and Maxwell Samuda are the latest castmates to leave ‘Love Island’, but there was a twist in their exit as they were told they were going to choose the next two contestants to leave the show.

Love Island

Olivia Hawkins and Maxwell Samuda are the latest contestants to get the boot from ‘Love Island’.

Host Maya Jama announced on Wednesday (01.03.23) night’s episode of the ITV2 dating show the pair, who were in a couple, were getting the chop, after Olivia was branded a “villain” by fans and “fake” by her castmate Jessie Wynter.

But there was a twist in the exit when Maya announced the pair would choose which two contestants would be next to leave.

She said: “The couple with the fewest votes and therefore dumped from the island is Olivia and Maxwell.

“Islanders, I have some more news – Olivia and Maxwell are not the only ones leaving. Two more Islanders will also be dumped tonight.

“That decision is not down to the public or your fellow Islanders. It’s actually down to you – Olivia and Maxwell.”

The identity of the two they choose will be under wraps until Thursday (02.03.23) night’s show.

Olivia and Maxwell’s exit came after Maya told the castmates there had been a public vote to decide the most compatible couples, with those with the fewest votes at risk of getting ditched from the show.

Along with Olivia and Maxwell, Claudia Fogarty and Keanan Brand, Rosie Seabrook and Casey O’Gorman and Tanya Manhenga and Shaq Muhammad were left in the firing line, before the pair got the news they were going home.

Asked about how she felt about leaving, Olivia said: “Obviously it’s sad to leave these guys.

“But I’ve found what I came looking for so I’m happy to be leaving with (Maxell.)”

Love Island continues on Thursday (02.03.23) on ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm, and can be seen in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
