Yesterday (June 12) it was announced Love Island contestant Niall Aslam had abruptly left the show.
His reasons for leaving have remained a mystery, with fans of the show desperate for an answer for his quick exit.
While nothing has been officially confirmed – other than a short statement sighting ‘personal reasons’ – observant Love Island viewers believe they’ve spotted a clue as to why he left. This is thanks to a passing comment made by fellow contestant Rosie.
During last night’s episode in which lawyer Rosie labelled Adam ‘dishonest’, after finding out he had called her ‘clingy’ behind her back, she made a reference to Niall.
In her furious rant to Adam she said:
You say about Niall not being honest the other night, but you literally did what he did… and didn’t have the balls to tell me before that you were going to do it.
According to The Sun, it was a blink and you’ll miss it moment – if you happened to be deeply invested in the trivial drama between a group of contestants who act like 15 year olds dealing with the pitfalls of puberty. But it didn’t go past the observant viewers.
Those on Twitter who were quick to link Niall’s exit with Rosie’s passing comment.
One person who noticed her comment wrote:
Did anyone else notice Rosie reference Niall’s dishonesty in her confrontation with Adam, I reckon he’s broke the rules in some way and that’s why it’s so hush hush #LoveIsland.

Someone else Tweeted:
Am I the only one who heard Rosie say ‘you went on about Niall not being honest but you did what he did’. Is the personal reason a girlfriend….? #LoveIsland
Why did Rosie say “you say about Niall not being honest the other night” when she was having her showdown with Adam? I’m so confused #LoveIsland

It seems the mystery surrounding Niall’s hasty departure and Rosie’s passing comment has only added fuel to the fire. It’s like the Roswell conspiracies meet Ibiza. Is there a Love Island version of Mulder and Scully lurking around who can put this matter to rest?
Prior to leaving 23-year-old Niall had become one of the favourites to win the ITV show but had to leave due to ‘personal reasons‘.
The Islander’s departure was seen on last night’s episode where Alex says, in the simplest terms:
For personal reasons unfortunately he can’t continue or come back to the Villa.
Georgia, who had been coupled up with Niall, says:
Obviously I was coupled up with him so obviously I came closer to him than most people here but it wasn’t just that.
He was actually my friend, my buddy.
Georgia and Niall shared a smooch on their first date. However, she became irate when Megan Barton Hanson took Niall out on a separate date after arriving in the villa on Sunday night (June 10), as reported by The Metro.
Megan has previously described her type as ‘Dark and tanned looks wise but I’m definitely more about personality..’
I like Niall and Eyal. Niall is perfection – I have a thing for mouths and he has such a good mouth.
Prior to joining Love Island, Niall said:
I am going in there and I want to find love.
I don’t care who a lad is if he is big, better looking, I’m still going in there and I’ll still rock up and try and chat up his missus.
I’ll put my hands up and say I don’t watch this show. I’m not the target audience and there is nothing wrong with that. If you like the show it’s your prerogative and I won’t judge.
Anyways good luck to Niall in whatever he decides to do post-Love Island.
