'It was hurtful' Love Island's Samantha says Grace and Joey 'giggled and smirked' about her dumping


Samantha Kenny's time in the Love Island villa was cut short after a tense recoupling, which saw her lose partner Joey Essex to new bombshell Grace Jackson. She was immediately dumped from the island, leaving her fellow Islanders devastated.

Samantha, 25, has now unveiled how Joey, 33, and Grace, 25, really reacted to her exiting the ITVBe show, admitting their actions - which weren't shown on the TV show - were "hurtful". Speaking exclusively to new, with Glamify Fashion, the make-up artist said: "It wasn’t shown, but when I was stood up there on my own [at the recoupling], they were giggling and smirking. It was hurtful."

Samantha spent two weeks getting to know ex-TOWIE star Joey but when his ex Grace entered the villa, he immediately rekindled his romance with her. The pair failed to hide their chemistry and openly kissed in front of Samantha in the villa, and even enjoyed a night away in the hideaway with no prompting from TV producers.

The 25 year old admitted she thought Joey would have had more respect for her rather than flaunting his relationship with Grace in front of her, especially after she'd made it clear how upset she was over the situation that had proceeded to unfold. She said: "He could see how visibly upset I was and he just disregarded my feelings."

However, there seems to be no hard feelings. Samantha still thinks of Joey as a "caring and kind person" but acknowledges how "insensitive" he was towards her and her feelings.

"I still think he’s a caring and kind person, I just think he was insensitive to my feelings. I’ve now seen the things that he said behind my back, like when he said the handbrake wasn’t completely on [after the date]. Seeing that hurt me," she told new.

Should she be given the opportunity to head back into the villa, Samantha said she wouldn't "give Joey and Grace the time of day" - seemingly confirming she's put her failed romance with the TOWIE lothario behind her.

Samantha was the fourth Islander to be dumped from the villa, following the exits of Sam Taylor, Patsy Field and Munveer Jabbal. Shortly after Samantha left, two new bombshells - Matilda and Konnor - arrived in the Love Island villa, ready to shake things up even more amongst the Islanders.

The ITVBe show, hosted by Maya Jama, tends to run for eight weeks each summer, meaning the final could take place around 31 July. One couple will take home the £50,000 prize fund, which is split between them.
