Casa Amor bombshell Lillie Haynes has admitted that she felt “mugged off” by Liam Reardon during Love Island’s explosive recoupling on Friday night.

The 22-year-old from South Shields caused a stir around the firepit when she revealed that Liam had been unfaithful during his stay at Casa Amor, telling the others that they had shared a bed and kissed outside of a challenge.

Friday night’s episode of the ITV2 dating show saw Lillie make a surprise appearance in the main villa and reveal to her love rival that Liam had been unfaithful to her.

After leaving the show, the trainee accountant, 22, told the Sun on Sunday: “When I found out Liam hadn’t chosen me, I felt ­misled. He’d been giving me what I wanted to hear and I was convinced he was the one.

“He made me feel as if I had a really strong chance of going back to the villa with him. He was very hands-on — we were like a couple in there.

“So, I definitely thought I was going to get picked. When he chose to go back alone, I was shocked.

“Then when I walked into the villa with the other girls, I didn’t like how Liam had Millie’s necklace and his arm around her after how he’d been with me.

“It wouldn’t have been nice of me to stand there and let her be happy and lovey, thinking: ‘Oh, he’s come back’ when she was being mugged off.”

Lillie said she “spoke up as one girl to another” and wanted to put a “question mark” in Millie’s head because she doubted whether Liam would reveal the full extent of their time together.

"Because he is going to have to say something about what happened between us. And I don’t know if it’s going to be the whole truth.

“I didn’t do it to cause drama or be petty, but I wanted her to know to be a bit wary of him. I had nothing to lose and nothing to gain at that point.”

On Saturday a message posted on Lillie’s Instagram account called for viewers to “think hard” before directing hate towards her on social media following the conflict in the villa.

It also praised her for “going into the villa and dropping the truth bomb."

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media One and Virgin Media Player.
