This year’s Love Island villa was full of secret quitters.
Since leaving the villa, Laura Anderson has admitted she left three times because of ‘overwhelming’ atmosphere.
But that was just the tip of the iceberg as Mirror TV can reveal that ALL of the girls threatened to quit during the series.
The dramatic recouplings and shock dumpings became too much for the female Islanders.
However, Frankie Foster has confessed it was "just girls being dramatic" and no one actually expected them to leave.
So it came as a massive shock to him when now girlfriend Samira Mighty did walk out to be with him.
"Yeah it’s a girl thing," said Frankie. "I think all of the girls must have had a moment in there where they were like ‘I’m not doing this I’m going to go blah blah’.
"The funniest thing about Sam[ira] actually leaving was, and anytime anyone ever kicked off, I was like ‘they’re never going to leave the show’."
More on Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham…
Frankie admitted he "massively" didn’t expect Samira to give up her place on the show to be with him.
On whether he secretly wanted her to walk, Frankie said: "Yeah it was a bit of both. I didn’t want to be the one to cut her experience short.
"I didn’t want her to feel pressure to leave just because of me so I tried to make it clear – ‘look we’ll see each other when we get out, just enjoy whatever time you’ve got left’."
Samira, Niall Aslam , Georgia Steel and Sam Bird were the only contestants that actually walked from the villa.
Some of the empty threats did air on-screen, such as Dani Dyer telling Jack Fincham she was leaving after he failed a major question in the lie detector test.
Laura secretly quit multiple times and even stayed out on the beach all night as she was so unhappy – but the scenes were carefully shielded from the public.
The air stewardess was so upset at being dumped by both Wes Nelson and Jack Fowler that she walked out of the house.
Laura had to be coaxed back by producers who were keen to keep the original Islander.
"I didn’t sleep all night. I went to the beach most of the night and I smoked 24 cigarettes," she told the Sun .
"Loads of stuff happens and you’re just stuck there and you have to chat about it so I just a bit overwhelmed. I was like, ‘I’ve had enough’.
"Everyone has a wobbly, it’s like cabin fever. At one point there was 20 of us in there. I think all of the originals found it a bit much towards the end.
"When you get into relationships, and you see your friends getting upset you need to take some time to step outside and not be filmed."
