Love Island: Ex-islander Rykard Jenkins has told fans he WANTS Tom Powell to leave the villa and head home.

In last night's episode of the show, Tom threatened to quit after the arrival of his ex-girlfriend Emma-Jane Woodham caused problems for him and his current girlfriend Sophie Gradon.

Fans are yet waiting to hear if Tom follows through with his exit, and taking to Twitter, his pal Rykard has said he hopes he does go.

Reacting to Tom and Sophie's fallout on Twitter, Rykard showed his support for his co-star and claimed Love Island producers had been unfair to him, by allowing Emma to join the show.

Rykard tweeted: "Tom hasn't done nothing wrong. He's acted amazing. #LoveIsland.

"Oi @LoveIsland YOU F**KED TOM OVER! He was one of the best people in there... LoveIsland needs to stop f**king off their best cast-members!!! #TEAMTOM All day @TomPowell1992."

He then added: "It sounds harsh but I hope Tom does leave. Because he deserves better than that. Such a sh*t situation to be in!"

Tom was left shocked when Emma turned up in the villa, and was later left on edge when Emma and his girlfriend Sophie appeared to hit it off with each other.

Their blossoming friendship led to Tom and Sophie arguing, with him telling her: "This is just as awkward for me, as it is for you. It's my ex in here and you're spending so much time with her, not with me. It's like you're teaming up against me, that's what I feel like, can you not see that?"

Sophie, however, said she wasn't interested and claimed Tom was finding something to row about. She was particularly annoyed he'd told her the boys thought Emma might have come in 'cause she still had feelings for him and told her beau he was "pushing her over the edge."

Tom then told Sophie it would be best for him to leave, and despite Sophie and his fellow islanders trying to persuade him to stay, he began packing his bags.

We've now learned that Tom did decide to stay and slept on his decision. However, after Tom agrees to stay to work on his relationship with Sophie, the pair are at loggerheads again when she doesn't say goodnight to him.

Will Tom change his mind about staying? Will he and Sophie split?
