LOVE Island Australia is left in shock on tonight’s installment after John James Parton quits the villa in a surprise walkout.
The former Big Brother UK star will not only leave viewers reeling about his decision but his fellow female contestants when he doesn’t tell the girls he’s left.
The hunky reality star explains that he hasn’t found a connection with any of the villa’s ladies and doesn’t want to “play a game” for the sake of staying on the show.
Speaking in the Beach Hut on Love Island Australia, John James says: “I know what I came here for. I’m true to myself.
“I came here looking for a connection and not only can I not see one with any girl in the villa, I don’t want one with any of the girls in the villa at the moment.”
The 34-year-old DJ adds: “I’d be lying to myself and I’d be playing a game in front of everybody if I stayed here on the island.”
After his chat in the Beach Hut, John James asks Eden to gather all the boys in the bedroom.
The TV star is keen to avoid drawing attention to his departure, so he doesn’t tell the girls he is leaving.
Speaking to the boys, John James says: “I’m going to go.
“I wanted to say thanks for all your support in the time I’ve been here. I wish you all the best.
“I do really hope you all find what you’re looking for and I believe you’re all here for the right reasons.”
John James arrived in the villa last week alongside fellow bombshell Elias Chigros.
The TV star was picked to go on a date with Cassidy in the wake of her fallout with Grant.
UK fans will remember John James was just 24 when he entered the Big Brother house and fell for Josie Gibson.
