Lucie Donlan struggles on Love Island after Joe Garratt axed

Women's Aid offer statement on show

Joe said: "I think the intense nature of it all, when fellow islanders said stuff to me - it would never bother me normally - but because you are in there and you get told things constantly you are like 'am I OK with these things?' and I generally was, but you feel that heightened pressure and you have these conversations and you have to address things".

The 22-year-old sandwich maker is still hopeful that the 21-year-old surfer who he was coupled up with before his exit from the ITV2 reality show on Tuesday (18.06.19) still wants to be with him and he hasn't ruled out the "possibility" of returning to the show to see the blonde beauty.

Dumped "Love Island" star Joe Garratt hopes he still has a chance with Lucie Donlan outside of the villa.

Revealing her decision in the privacy of the Beach Hut, Lucie admits: "I am finding it hard this morning".

Joe said he was "gutted" viewers perceived his actions as abusive, and insisted he was only "trying to help her" because she was having "a hard time" on the show.

Joe was one of two Islanders booted off the show in this week's Love Island 2019 results.

Viewers called out Joe for gaslighting Lucie but his friends and family have jumped to his defence, blaming it on editing.

He seemed to use her feelings toward him as leverage, stating: "You know I like you so much but I do doubt things at times".

Domestic abuse charity Women's Aid also raised concerns.

"I am not going to say sorry", he said. I may have slipped up a bit but I am only human'.

Joe's dumping comes after he branded Lucie's close friendships with the other males in the villa as "strange", prompting hundreds of complaints. I do hope there is a future for us.

"I don't know what he would have done", she explains the following morning. I am not that person'.

In spite of all the criticism, Joe is sure that him and Lucie still have potential.

'It's a shocker because we did get on so well and everyone can see that'.

"They do take precautions in there".

In tonight's episode, speaking on the day beds shortly after Joe was given the boot, Lucie's frienemy Amy says: "We've all had our differences but situations like this make you realise that we all need to stick together".

Viewers will have to tune in tonight at 9pm to find out whether one, two or even three cast members will be dumped from the Love Island 2019 villa.
