Love Island's Tom Powell and Liana Isadora Van Riel have been DUMPED from the villa.

The two islanders got their marching orders from Caroline Flack at the end of Thursday night's (30 June) episode, when the results of the latest public vote were revealed.

It was Adam and Liana v Tom and Sophie.

It means Tom's been split from girlfriend Sophie Gradon…

The islanders all recoupled on Wednesday, and were then tasked with nominating the two weakest couples in the villa. They chose Tom and Sophie, who had just split, and Liana and Adam Maxted, who are just friends.

What the islanders didn't know, however, was instead of one couple being dumped, it was just one person from EACH couple who would be axed.

Tom had to say goodbye to Sophie.

Unfortunately for Tom and Sophie, who reunited after they were voted a weak couple, that means they've been separated, and Tom's on a plane back to the UK.

Sophie had admitted being voted as a weak couple didn't surprise her, saying: "I think because me and Tom had broken up, timing was just a bitch on this one."

Tom added: "I haven't got much to say really. I think because we'd broken up, everyone thought we wasn't strong because of that."

Adam and Liana had been coupled as friends.

Adam and Liana weren't surprised either, with Liana saying: "We know we're the only couple who are on a friendship basis when everyone else is romantic, so we saw it coming."

The results mean Sophie and Adam have the chance to find love again.

Neither Adam nor Liana have found love in the villa: Adam, who has been single for six years, was previously coupled up with girls, but hasn't formed a romantic bond with anyone. Liana, meanwhile, has been coupled with Adam as friends since she arrived, and did not get romantic with anyone either.

Sophie and Tom got back together tonight.

Now, we're all thinking the same thing... will Sophie do a Terry Walsh now that Tom has left?

Terry had been coupled with Malin Andersson - and they were officially boyfriend and girlfriend - but after she was dumped last week, he swiftly moved on to newcomer Emma-Jane Woodham, having sex with her in the latest episode.

Tom has said he's worried Sophie will dump him on the outside world...

"In my head I'm 90% sure she's going to end it when we get out," he told the boys earlier tonight. "I think she's going to end it from the outside."

Tom said tonight he's worried Sophie will dump him after the show.

Sophie and Tom split over the weekend, with Sophie saying she'd lost patience with Tom's mood swings and having to walk on eggshells around him. The arrival of his ex-girlfriend Emma-Jane Woodham to the villa didn't help things either, with Tom having to watch Sophie and Emma form a tight bond.

That bond, however, was broken tonight when Emma had sex with Terry Walsh, who was previously coupled with Malin Andersson. Sophie seemed incredulous that Emma had vowed to never have sex on TV but broke that promise just a few days later.

Love Island continues nightly at 9pm on ITV2.
