Love Island: Rykard Jenkins claims Nathan Massey and Cara de la Hoyde are the only real couple left in the villa?

It's all been kicking off on Love Island lately, with many of the show's couples falling apart, new couples emerging and others becoming completely friend-zoned. Fans have recently watched Tom and Sophie split, get back together and then get separated, with Tom dropping the L-bomb to Sophie and Sophie later coupling up with newcomer Katie Salmon following Tom's exit.

Similarly, Malin and Terry's official romance broke down after she was voted out of the villa, and last night, Malin finally got to confront Terry after he appeared to dump her onscreen and strike up a romance with Emma-Jane instead.

Reacting to recent events, Rykard seemed to criticise the couples left in the villa, telling fans on Twitter that he thinks the "only couple" on the show is Nathan and Cara.

He tweeted: "The only couple in there is Nathan & Cara. #LoveIsland"

Does that mean he doesn't think the other couples in the villa are genuine? Not exactly, in another tweet he decided that there are now just three strong couples in the villa.

Rykard added in a series of tweets: "Also Scott & Kady. They've developed into a wonderful couple #LoveIsland.

"You know what, Olivia & Alex have become a really nice couple to watch #HappyForThem.

"So yeah 3 strong couples. Nathan-Cara, Scott-Kady, Alex-Olivia. Good luck guys."

We know who he is rooting for, then!

Meanwhile, as for Rykard, he is currently loved-up with girlfriend Rachel Fenton. Rachel and Rykard had met on Love Island, and when Rachel was voted out of the show by her fellow islanders, Rykard shocked viewers and his co-stars when he decided to quit.

He admitted he didn't see the point of being on the show without Rachel, and he wasn't interested in the money.

Things weren't exactly plain sailing, though, as Caroline Flack then revealed to Rachel that Rykard had slept with Olivia behind her back. Rykard and Olivia had sex the night after he had enjoyed an overnight date with Rachel in the hideaway.

Rachel was visibly shocked at the bombshell and said she had felt "betrayed" by Rykard. She confronted him on camera, and Rykard told her if he could take it back, he would. Luckily for him, his decision to leave won Rachel over, as she told Rykard: "The fact that you left, it does mean quite a lot. If you had stayed in there, then I probably would have never wanted to see you again. That does make me feel like this is honestly real. I really doubted everything."

Since returning home, Rachel and Rykard have made their romance official.

Love Island airs nightly on ITV2.
