Dumped islander Arabella reveals which couple she doesn't think will last in Love Island (and we're so surprised)

Another one bites the dust.

27 Jun 2019

One love triangle, several fire pit chats and less than seven days later, Arabella Chi has been dumped from the Love Island villa.

Both Arabella and Tom were left packing their suitcases after the islanders chose the save Danny and Maura, leaving Arabella and Tom on a flight back to England.

Here's what Arabella had to say about her time in the villa...

How would you sum up your time in the villa?

My time in the villa was eventful, it was full of a lot of emotions, and I met some friends for life, especially Lucie. I had an amazing time, it was the experience of a lifetime, which was why I signed up. I would have loved to have stayed longer and carried on the journey with Danny, and kept getting to know him better, but on the whole it was an amazing experience which I’ll never forget.

What were some of the highlights of going in?

The highlights were becoming so close to Lucie, which was a bit of a shock to me. She was the one I thought I might have less of a friendship with because of having dated the same guy outside of the villa (Charlie Frederick). Obviously getting to know Danny on a romantic level as well. Every day with Danny we were getting closer and closer to one another.

If you had your time again would you have coupled up as you did?

100% - I found somebody that I had a romantic connection with. I was attracted to him before I even went in the villa. Getting to know him more and more those feelings developed every day.

The aim of the game is to find love but is there anyone you would say is just game playing?

No I actually wouldn’t. Having got to know everybody in such a short space of time, I wouldn’t say anyone in there is a game player. All their feelings are genuine. I would maybe say Amber and Michael may struggle when they are tested – they are quite different in their personalities and Amber isn’t as open as Michael. They will either be made much stronger as a result of being tested, or will go the other way.

What was the most challenging aspect of being in the villa?

Taking Danny from Yewande and the tension with the other girls. I knew there would be friction but at one point it felt like the villa was very divided, after Yewande left. It felt like I was being looked at as a big bad wolf, even though I had just gone in there and followed my feelings.

If you could see one of the couples going the distance, who would it be?

Amy and Curtis – I feel like Amy is a bit misunderstood but when you’re with her 24/7 you can see how into each other they are. They just connect. They are different but the same. Their quirkiness makes them who they are. They are the most unique couple I have ever seen.

Do you think you made any mistakes along the way?

No I think I did everything in the right way. Going in there I knew it would be difficult going for Danny but I did it the right way. I had a chat with Yewande first. All the girls reassured me when I left that I had done everything right. I feel like everybody saw me and Danny blossom so will understand we were right for each other.

How surprised were you by the dumping? Did you expect to leave?

I knew that I was in danger because I was the newest islander. If there was one person they would miss the least it would be me. I was still surprised though. I think the boys thought the girls would choose Danny, because of the Yewande situation. I don’t know if Danny will stay now I’ve gone. That decision is with him. He was gutted when I left and said I had given him the best week of his life. It’s up to him though. If he does stay he might be scared of jeopardising things with us.

Arabella appears on Love Island: Aftersun on Sunday 30th June at 10pm on ITV2.
