Gone: Love Island fans were quick to share their anger after Tanyel Revan was dumped from the villa in emotional scenes on Thursday night
‘Tanyel left too early. Such a pretty girl to watch on my screen’ commented one watcher.
While another shared: ‘As if tanyel is going home???? why is it always olivia’s victims.’
‘I get Tanyel didn’t have a romantic connection but neither did Ellie, and Tanyel brings so much in terms of vibes and friendships. Big mistake! HUGE!’ ranted a third.
‘Nah I just switched off, that’s me done. I ain’t watching these dry as unbuttered toast people over Tanyel. do better bruv coz this is damn near ridiculous’ fumed a fourth.
A fifth livid watcher wrote: ‘I’m literally done with this love island like are you kidding me?? Tanyel is gone??? Jordan picked Ellie over Tanyel lmao.’
‘Tanyel gone is this a sick joke’ questioned another angry viewer.
With another adding: ‘I’m done with this show, Tanyel was the one! Why is she going home.’
Speaking after leaving the villa, Tanyel revealed that she had a feeling that she was going home after not feeling a ‘spark’ with Jordan.

She said: ‘Going into the fire pit, I just had a weird feeling that I was going to be leaving the Villa. I like Jordan as a person, but I knew that if he had chosen to couple up with me, I’d have been forcing it. I knew there was no spark.’
Speaking further about Jordan choosing Ellie over her, she went on: ‘I was expecting him to pick Ellie. She’d given him more time and I didn’t.
‘I think he knew in his heart that I was making an effort just for the sake of it. I wanted to be open and give it a go but I think he knew that I didn’t fancy him.’

And while the stunner didn’t share a bond with Jordan, she soon addressed fan speculation that she had a soft spot for her pal Ron.
When asked if there was a romantic connection between them, she responded; ‘No. I’m glad I coupled up with him the first time around because if I hadn’t done that I wouldn’t have realised how good a friendship we could have.
‘What made me realise it was just a friendship between us was as soon as we coupled up, we couldn’t flirt. It’s like the flirting went out the window. I didn’t expect to get on with him that well.
‘He’s my best friend. When I get married one day, I want him to be there with Lana! Genuinely, I think he’ll be my friend for life.’
Love Island continues Friday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
