Lever was booted out of the villa after Montana Brown decided to ditch him, opting to couple up with newcomer Alex Beattie instead.

Viewers watched with bated breath to see whether Lever would walk out with another girl, meaning he would be part of a new couple.

But he appeared alone, meaning that he had wanted to stay with Brown, and was given his marching orders.

Fans were divided about Lever’s departure.

“'Dom you have been dumped' the words I have been waiting for,” said one, while other viewers said they were 'heartbroken' to see him go.
