Two Love Island favourites have reportedly been given the boot in a surprise double dumping that's left the villa in turmoil.

The hit ITV2 romance reality series has delivered a bombshell with two contestants being sent home, leaving their fellow Islanders stunned.

Friday night's unexpected twist saw the villa plunged into chaos following the dramatic elimination.

While the identities of the departed stars are being closely guarded by the show's producers, it's confirmed they've bid farewell to the villa.

A source spilled the beans to us, revealing: "Two Islanders were dumped from the villa last night in an epic elimination the couples weren't expecting.

"It has already sent shock waves through the Majorca mansion as the islanders weren't expecting it."

"With no new episode until Sunday night bosses behind-the-scenes are desperate to keep the identity of the two star's under wraps until the dramatic episode is broadcast."

Fans can expect to see the ousted duo on Love Island Aftersun, joining Maya Jama right after the main show airs.

In other news, Love Island's much-anticipated movie night is set to make its appearance a week earlier than usual, as the show enjoys a spike in viewership.

The programme is reeling in audiences, with a whopping 3.4 million viewers switching off from politics and sports to indulge in the show's latest drama.

Voiceover king Iain Stirling broke the thrilling news at the close of Friday's (July 5) show, sending fans into a frenzy as they flocked to social media to express their glee.

Over on X, previously known as Twitter, one eager viewer wrote: "Movie night is backkkk omg can't wait for these scummy men being exposed."

Another chimed in with: "No matter what it is, Nicole will 10000% be crying this Sunday on Movie Night."

This iconic Movie Night traditionally reveals how the Islanders' partners behaved during the notorious Casa Amor twist and tends to follow several episodes later.

But this time around, showrunners have opted to shake things up by introducing the challenge earlier, now dubbed Love Island's Film Festival, aiming to captivate the 3.4 million viewers who've been hooked on this series.

Cast your minds back to 2021 when the segment ignited such a heated argument it became Ofcom's most complained-about moment of the year. Who could forget Faye Winter's explosive reaction to Teddy Soares over a misleading clip, despite Teddy proving his loyalty?

In the latest instalment, voiceover maestro Iain couldn't resist a cheeky jibe at Rishi Sunak following Labour's victory over the Conservatives, with Rishi Sunak and his party facing a crushing blow at the ballot box.

He quipped: "Everyone's woken up thinking about last night. Big decisions were made. Hearts were broken and someone ended up in tears screaming 'why? ' But enough about Rishi Sunak."

Love Island continues weeknights on ITV2 from 9pm
