Natalia Zoppa has denied losing Luke Mabbott to get into the main Love Island villa — and taken a fresh swipe at him.
The 20 year old was one of the current series' Casa Amor bombshells, making a beeline for Luke, 24, who had been unlucky in love during his time in the villa up until that point.
However, viewers turned on her once she arrived in the show's main villa, when she almost instantly decided she didn't have feelings for the Justin Bieber lookalike and called off their romance.
After being dumped from the villa alongside partner Jamie Clayton, Natalia has defended her actions, and insisted she didn't use the hunk for airtime.

She said: "In Casa Amor we were in our little bubble and it was very private.
"Then when we got into Main Villa, even a little kiss in bed, that made me realise maybe I don't like him as much as I thought.
"I feel like at least I told him and was fair to him. If I was playing a game, I wouldn't have done that.

"I was more worried about how he was feeling, I didn't want him to be too upset."
Although she wishes her ex well, she doesn't have high hopes for his new relationship with co-star Demi Jones.
She continued: "They're really sweet together – they're both such nice people. They're too nice! They get along really well.
"I'm not in their relationship so I can't really say much. I don't think it'll work as they live so far away from each other."
However, discussing her own relationship, Natalia hopes her romance with Jamie will continue.
She added: "I would like to go on a date. He's got to plan it, not me.
"I'd like to do something fun like bowling. I don't want to just sit down in a restaurant and talk."
Wednesday night's episode of the hit ITV2 show also saw Callum Jones and Molly Smith dumped from the villa.
Discussing his break up with Shaughna Phillips, Callum said: "I never thought that deep into it. I thought I'll just chill out and enjoy it. Then I brought Molly back – so a bit different to what I thought would happen."

He added when asked if he was worried about coupling up with Molly because of Shaughna: "As bad as it sounds, I didn't really think about anything else.
"I knew I was happy, so I just went with that decision. It's not nice for Shaughna. At the end of the day, we were all in there to find something and I've found it."
Love Island continues Sunday to Friday at 9pm on ITV2.
