Love Island: Jess Shears has been hit with claims she cheated on Dom Lever when she left the vila [ITV]
Jess and Mike left the Love Island villa on the same night after receiving the fewest public votes.
While Jess was paired up with Dom Lever at the time, Mike was paired up with Olivia Attwood.
But rumours circulated the pair had hooked up after their exits from the show, something they both strongly deny.
Jess and Mike both appeared on Caroline Flack’s Love Island spin-off After Sun on Sunday night to reveal the truth about what happened.

Dom was seen in turmoil during Sunday night’s episode of Love Island as Marcel Somerville broke the news to him about the rumours.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, Harley shared his view on the rumours having spoke to co-star Jess about the claims.
While he had not met Mike, Harley spent a few days with Jess before his elimination, and has since been in contact with her.
Addressing Dom’s view that Jess is “innocent until proven guilty”, Harley confessed he too was willing to believe her claims that the rumours were false.

Harley told us: “It’s exactly what Dom said, innocent until proven guilty. What Jess said last night [on After Sun] was brilliant.
“A lot of things do get twisted and it escalates very quickly. If both said it didn’t happen then I believe them. We just have to wait and see when Dom comes out and they have that conversation.
“For now I’m just gonna say innocent until proven guilty. I think the right person told Dom too. Marcel told it how it was.
“The other islanders probably would have gone. ‘Oh yeah, Jess slept with Mike’. Marcel dealt with the situation appropriately and just say there was a rumour going around but he doesn’t know if there is any truth in it.

“It’s up to Dom now. He’s gonna be thinking about it but he can’t deal with it so he just has to go about as normal.”
Harley also dismissed claims he was dating fellow dumped islander Tyne-Lexy Clarson after their exits from the show.
