Matthew MacNabb has opened up about his time in the 'Love Island' villa.

Hailing from Co Down, Matthew MacNabb was brought into the villa by Kaz after Casa Amor.

Kaz then recoupled with Tyler, after which Matthew struck up a romance with Priya.

However, when she coupled with Brett, that left Matt single and therefore dumped from 'Love Island'.

Here, he says goodbye to his fellow islanders and reflects on his time in the series.

Matthew MacNabb recently opened up about what was going on behind the scenes for him personally in the villa in an Instagram post.

He revealed that he was mourning the death of a friend. He spoke to a psychologist in the villa.

Matt also thanked those behind the series for their support, and encouraged others to seek help if they need it.

Matthew writes: "My life has been crazy the past few months. From one of my best friends passing away two weeks before Love Island, to entering the villa and experiencing all that came with it.

"I’m not going to lie, the first week in the villa I struggled a lot. I was thinking of my friend and wanted my loved ones around me. Meanwhile, I was wanting to be my usual happy, positive self to really show who I was.

"I haven’t told anyone this, but I met with the psychologist when I was in the villa and cried for a solid hour. She helped me so much and made me realise that this life is an adventure and with any adventure, there are ups and there are downs. However, that is the journey and as long as you realise that, you will be okay.

"So embrace it, be present, be grateful and you will start to live your adventure to the best of your ability. This life is an amazing story and you are the main character in it. Live without fear, go for what you want, because someday the story will end, so make it epic."

Matthew MacNabb ended his post, writing: "I just want to thank @itv2 and @loveisland for being so supportive and amazing throughout. You are an amazing group of people❤️
