Ollie Williams has revealed he is back with his ex-girlfriend after quitting Love Island for her.
The 23 year old left the villa of the hit ITV2 show in emotional scenes last week.
He admitted to his fellow castmates — including Paige Turley, who he was coupled up with — that he still had feelings for Laura Nofer and was leaving the show to try and win her back.

Ollie and Laura had dated for 18 months after meeting at university in London but split in September due to distance.
The land owner's attempts were successful, as he has now opened up on their relationship and revealed the pair are planning on moving in together later this year.
He said: "I now realise that Laura is the girl I want to marry. I'm so grateful she has taken me back. We're going to move in together in London over the next few months. I can't wait to start a life with her.
"I obviously didn't want to start dating other girls before Love Island, so Paige was the first girl I got to know. She was lovely and easy to talk to, but it didn't feel right.
"I suddenly realised I was trying to develop feelings for Paige and my brain was telling me to do it but I knew my heart was elsewhere. It wasn't going to change.
"Blonde is my type, but trying to develop romantic feelings for someone else made me realise. I couldn't risk losing the love of my life.
"The girls in there made me realise just how special Laura was to me and unless she had walked through the doors then it wouldn't matter.
"I turned to the producers and said, 'I don't think I can be here anymore' they said to give it 24 hours and my feelings got stronger and they supportive about me leaving."
Discussing his reunion with Laura, Ollie continued to tell The Sun Online: "As soon as I landed in the UK I rang Laura to tell her I was deeply in love with her. We were both crying and she was like, 'Why has it taken it this to realise?' I asked her straightaway to be my girlfriend again.

"My main worry is that she could be seeing someone else — the longer I left it I felt she could have met another guy. I couldn't risk losing the love of my life.
"I was ready to couple up just not with anyone on the show. I didn't want to waste anyone's time. My main focus now will be repairing my relationship with the love of the my life."
