LOVE Island beauty Arabella Chi has been sensationally dumped from the villa after being voted out by her fellow contestants.
The model has revealed she’s “gutted” to leave after just eight days but vows to wait for partner Danny Williams – unless he cheats.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, she said: “I’m upset. I was in there for eight days. I’m honestly gutted to be leaving.
“I tried to make such an effort with everybody in the villa and I feel like I spread my time evenly among the Islanders.
“But I was the latest person in. They probably thought I would be missed the least. I’m trying not to take it to heart.
“My journey with Danny has only just started so I was really excited to see where that was going to go and be given more of an opportunity to get to know him better so I am feeling gutted about leaving.”
Arabella, 28, hopes her and Danny can “carry on from where we left of” when he leaves the show – but she isn’t prepared to take him back if he romances any of the new Islanders.
She added: “It was so tough having to say goodbye to Danny. Hopefully on the outside when he comes out we can carry on from where we left of but that depends what happens with him in the villa now.
“I will be watching him a million per cent. It will show me his character because he was coupled up with Yewande before me and then me – if he jumps ship again from my point of view I’ll come to the conclusion that it wasn’t as genuine.
“I need to see if he has a romantic connection with anybody else in there but time will tell.”
Arabella stole Danny, 21, from love rival Yewande Biala, 23, who predicted the couple would get their comeuppance.
Just days later, after being taunted and singled out by the rest of her Islanders, Arabella was chosen by the group to leave.
But she claims there are no hard feelings between her and Yewande or the rest of her female Islanders, after 192 viewers complained to TV watchdog about their “pathetic behaviour.”
She said: “I have complete respect for Yewande. It was just the situation. I always knew the girls were going to show their loyalties towards Yewande – having only been in there for a week now I understand how quickly friendship forms.
“They were obviously very close to her and I completely understand their loyalties to her. I completely respect that’s why they did what they did. I wouldn’t say they were ganging up on me.
“Tensions were very, very high as it was obviously it was the night of the recoupling.
“ I knew there was going to be a natural tension when I went in but at the end of the day you can’t hide feelings and Danny and I had feelings towards each other. It took me a few days to find my feet.”
Despite their undeniable chemistry Arabella claims her and Danny didn’t have sex – but only because of the small size of the communal bedroom.

She said: “I went in there with such an open mind but when you’re in the villa you realise how close the beds are and it’s not that dark in there.
“All of us girls had a chat saying it’s a lot harder to have sex in there than what you think.
“All Danny and I did was kiss. When you’re kissing and in bed together on the outside world things would be different but in there you’re sharing a room and no – it would be hard. I don’t think any other couples have had sex in the villa.”
