Brad McClelland’s exit from the Love Island villa provided one of the most dramatic of the series so far – but it turns out his time on the show might not be over just yet.
Brad and Lucinda Strafford received the fewest votes meaning they were chosen as the least compatible couple last week, and then told to decide between themselves who would leave – or they could leave together.
Brad said that he hoped the pair could rekindle their romance outside of the show. But could he instead have a chance to return to the villa in person?
During a fan Q&A on Instagram, Brad didn’t rule out the idea of going into Casa Amor later in the series.
Given that Lucinda appears to have moved on with Aaron Francis in dramatic scenes, we can imagine it would be a reunion to remember.
Asked by a fan if he’s going into Casa Amor on social media, Brad said: ‘Not that I know of, but it’s Love Island so who knows?’

Who knows, indeed, although fans are pretty keen to see him back on their screens.
Writing on social media, one said: ‘Get [Brad] back in for Casa Amor! see if Lucinda will go back to him. Make this series more interesting, this is what the people want to seee!’
Another added: ‘Petition to send Brad into Casa Amor.’
I really want Aaron & Lucinda to get together & then they drop Brad back in Casa Amor #LoveIsland
