Love Island star Lillie Haynes has returned home to the North East in the wake of being at the centre of huge drama on the show.

A week after she made her first appearance on the ITV2 programme, Lillie is back in South Shields, days after THAT Casa Amor recoupling, when her revelations about Liam rocked the villa and left viewers at home wishing they had more popcorn.

Trainee accountant Lillie went into Love Island as one of six girls for Casa Amor, all with the aim of trying to turn the heads of the boys as they left the girls behind in the main villa.

She instantly had an attraction to Liam, with the Welshman kissing her during a game of Truth or Dare, after identifying her as the girl he fancied the most.

Despite the fact he'd been coupled up with Millie for a few weeks prior to Casa Amor, Liam and Lillie two went onto share a bed over consecutive nights before he kissed her for a second time.

Ultimately, Liam chose to go back to the main villa alone but Lillie did not leave quietly, spilling the beans on just how close she got to him.

The fallout led to Millie being sent from the villa to meet with Lillie as she sought answers on what exactly happened.

And now, just a day after their chat played out on screen, Lillie is safely back home.

She first shared a post about coming home to her mam on her Instagram story before uploading a picture of her with one of the other Casa Amor girls after landing back in the UK.

She followed that with a picture of her in her living room, standing with a bouquet of flowers in front of a balloon arch, adorned with the words Love Island 2021.

After Friday's explosive recoupling, Lillie's family took to her Instagram account to urge viewers to 'be kind.'

They wrote: "Just like every other islander Lillie was perfectly entitled to get to know everyone. Only one person has behaved badly towards Millie and it most definitely was NOT Lillie.

"Better still, Don’t hate #bekind and remember these are just a group of gorgeous young people enjoying the holiday experience of a lifetime for an entertainment TV show."
