Ex-Boyzone singer leaves Island

Former Boyzone member Shane Lynch has become the latest contestant to leave ITV reality show Love Island.

"My time has come and I need to leave this place," said the 29-year-old, who said he was leaving the Fijian island to be with a former girlfriend.

"There's somebody who really owns my heart and that's where it lies right now," he told his fellow participants.

The second Love Island series has been hit by low viewing figures and early departures from some of its cast.

Lynch's exit follows those of Steve-O from MTV show Jackass and former basketball star Dennis Rodman.

Model Sophie Anderton, former Hollyoaks actor Lee Otway and Pierce Brosnan's stepson Chris are among those still on the island.
