Ollie Williams has reportedly quit Love Island after less than three days in the villa.

Ollie found himself the subject of much criticism even before he made his first appearance on Love Island after social media got wind of his trophy-hunting past.

Several petitions were started to get the 23-year-old removed from the ITV show after photographs emerged of him posing with dead animals he had hunted. One such petition had amassed over 35,000 signatures.

The popularity of the wealthy Lord-to-be plummeted even further in recent days after Ollie admitted to cheating on his ex-girlfriend "eight or nine times".

Ollie, who was coupled up with singer Paige Turley, has now decided to quit the show after reportedly realising that he still still had feelings for ex, Laura Nofer.

The report comes from The Sun, with a source telling the newspaper: "The show made Ollie realise he wasn't ready to be in another serious relationship and he still has really strong feelings for Laura.

"Meeting girls who were so different to him and his background only clarified how he felt about his ex and he felt it was only fair to leave the competition and sort his head out.

"He told producers and acted on his feelings as soon as he made up his mind."
