However, one of the season's most shocking turn of events actually happened outside of the villa, and it involved a family reunion.

That's right, Brad McClelland has shared that his stint on the show helped him connect with his long-lost sister.

During an appearance on ITV's Lorraine, the Northumberland labourer said that his 15 year-old sister reached out to him for the first time.

"I grew up with my nana, my dad wasn't on the scene," Brad explained.

"I always knew I had a younger sister. I tried to get in contact with her for years, searched for her on social media, all I had was her name.

"She reached out to me and I FaceTimed her a couple of days ago.

"If anything has come from my Love Island experience... I found love in a different way. She's 15, and that's the first time I've ever seen her. It means the world to me."

He added: "I'm one of six, and my brothers and sisters are massive for me. I try to spend as much time as I can with them. To have another sibling is a massive thing."

Brad also talked to ITV's Ranvir Singh about his close bond with his grandmother.

He said: "I’ve lived with my nana since I was four years old… we’ve been together, just me and her and our little dog for 21 years."

Brad said that while they argue a lot, he has enormous respect for her.

"She basically ended her life to look after me," he said.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media One and the Virgin Media Player.
