Love Island’s Luca Bish was left devastated over his best friend Jacques O’Neill leaving the villa, saying he would have left with him if it hadn’t been for Gemma Owen.

Despite Jacques being Gemma’s ex, he and Luca were close friends throughout their time in the villa.

So when Jacques decided he needed to leave, Luca was heartbroken.

‘F**king hell Jacques. I don’t even think I’d get this upset if Gemma left. It ain’t gonna be the same without you,’ he told him.

‘If Gem weren’t here, I would have walked out that door with him,’ he added in the beach hut. ‘He’s made the right decision at the end of the day, and as long as he’s happy I’m happy. He means a lot to me and I can’t wait to see him on the outside.’

Fans were heartbroken for them both, with one writing: ‘NOT ME SOBBING OVER LUCA LOSING JACQUES.’

Another said: ‘luca and jacques is killing me,’ while one more added: ‘Why did I cry watching Jacques and Luca say goodbye to each other.’

Jacques decided to leave the villa for his mental health, after admitting he hadn’t been himself.

Paige confessed that she felt ‘guilty’, while Jacques reassured her that she had nothing to feel guilty about by choosing to stay.

‘It’s the only way I’m gonna get back to myself… I can’t carry on like this,’ Jacques told Paige, before calling the rest of the islanders to the firepit to announce he was heading home.

A Love Island spokesperson said: ‘Jacques has made the decision to leave the Villa.

‘He will explain his reasons to the Islanders during tonight’s episode. We fully support his decision and look forward to seeing what’s next for Jacques.’

Love Island continues Wednesday night at 9pm on ITV2.
