Love Island's Emma reveals status with Joey EssexITV

Love Island's Emma Milton has opened up on her relationship with Joey Essex following her brutal dumping.

The Casa Amor girl made it past the show's annual twist after Konnor Ewudzi decided to pursue a relationship with her. However, in a shocking twist, Emma questioned where their romance was going and ended things with Konnor, sleeping in bed alone.

Last night's episode saw the villa thrown into more chaos, with a mass dumping that saw Emma pack her bags alongside Casa Amor residents Blade Siddiqi and Hugo Godfroy, as well as day one Islander Jess White.

On entering the villa, it was revealed that Emma had a previous connection with one of her fellow contestants: The Only Way Is Essex star Joey.

Since leaving, she has shared more about their connection and how she believes his relationship with Jessy Potts will pan out.

"It was so nice to see him again. I’m just honestly so happy as his friend to see him find something so good with Jessy," she said during her exit interview.

"The second I got in there, the vibe was friendly. We only had a very brief fling before, so it was never going to be anything for me. I’ll always be there for him as a friend and so happy he’s met a lovely girl.

"Before I left, I gave him some advice so I’m hopeful that will stick with Jessy."

Her fellow Casa Amor pals, Diamanté Laiva, Lucy Graybill and Ruby Dale, have also shared why they think Emma ditched Konnor after seeming so smitten.

When the trio appeared on Love Island podcast The Morning After, Diamanté said: "I think it's the snoring, because Konnor snores and Emma does not like snoring.

"She wears earplugs and I don't think she could cope with the snoring any longer. Other than that, I genuinely cannot think of any issues with Konnor at all. He's too genuine."

Love Island airs on ITV2 and streams on ITVX.
