Eliminated ‘Love Island’ contestants Tony and John Alberti have hit out at their fellow islanders, branding them “desperate” and “embarrassing”.
The twins became the first participants to be booted out of the show on Thursday night, just days after making their late arrival to the villa, when Lauren Richardson chose to save Chris over them.
However, it doesn’t sound like they’re particularly sad to be away from their “desperate” fellow islanders, who they have been pretty scathing about, following their elimination.

Speaking to The Mirror, they revealed they “don’t think any of them are real”, adding: “Once they're on the outside they probably won't see each other again.
“They're just saving their own skin to stay in as long as possible.”
Tony and John also criticised the remaining boys on the show, claiming they found watching them trying to save themselves from elimination by “running around, trying to chat” to the girls “embarrassing”.
Shortly after the twins’ elimination, two brand new contestants entered the house, with Naomi Ball and glamour model Daisy Muller arriving to shake things up.
Meanwhile, ‘Love Island’ producers were recently forced to deny rumours the show was fixed, after a year-old photo of two of the contestants, Hannah Elizabeth and Jonathan Clark, surfaced online.
A spokesperson for the ITV2 show said: “The opening episode of ‘Love Island’ featured a scene in which Jonathan acknowledged in the Beach Hut that he had met Hannah before the show.
“As far as we are aware, neither knew of the other’s involvement in Love Island until they met in the villa.”
