Love Island is heating up tonight as the second contestant of the season has decided to walk. 

It has been announced that Jacques O'Neil has left the villa and will explain why in tonight's episode.

Last night's preview saw the Cumbrian-born rugby player lose his temper as previous Love Islander, Adam Collard, was getting to know Paige.

Adam surprised both viewers and the islanders by entering the villa for a second time, first appearing in season four.

A Love Island spokesperson confirmed his departure and said: "Jacques has made the decision to leave the Villa. He will explain his reasons to the Islanders during tonight’s episode. We fully support his decision and look forward to seeing what’s next for Jacques."

Jacques was in a couple with Paige after partnering up with her when he entered the villa.

After his behaviour in Casa Amor upset Paige the two had been on edge but had recently made up.

It is currently not clear why Jacques has left the villa.
