The guys in the villa are left gutted by Niall's exit, with Dr Alex telling the Beach Hut cameras he was looking forward to seeing him again.
Alex explained: “I’m obviously sad that Niall’s left the villa. We got on really, really well.
"He’s such a great guy. And I look forward to catching up with him and having some fun with him outside.”
Georgia Steel, who was partnered with Niall told the cameras: “Obviously I was coupled up with him so obviously I came closer to him than most people in here but it wasn’t just that.
“He was actually my friend, my buddy.”
With the recoupling possibly just hours away, fans could be in for an explosive episode as it's all change in the villa.
