LOVE Island cast members are facing a gruelling couple of weeks, as eliminations loom – just ask Callum Macleod, who was the first to be kicked off the show.
There can only be one couple crowned the winner of the ITV2 series and take home a whopping £50,000 prize. Here’s what we know about the Love Island eliminations.
When was the first Love Island elimination?
The first elimination of series five took place on June 7 and saw aircraft engineer Callum become the first islander to leave the competition.
None of the female cast members chose to couple up with him, leaving him single and ultimately sent home.
Speaking after his elimination, Callum said: “It’s unfortunate that I didn’t meet anyone that I connected with but I had such good fun in there.
“Even though I didn’t meet anyone that I could potentially be with on the outside, I loved it, which is a great bonus.”
Who’s now in danger of being sent home from Love Island?
Yewande Biala is tipped to be the first girl to leave the series, perhaps because she has struggled to make a connection with any of the boys in the villa.
Bookmaker Coral has odds of 6-4 for the Dublin-based scientist to be the next star kicked off the show.
When is the next elimination taking place?
It’s unclear when Love Island will hold its next elimination showdown, especially since it doesn’t always happen on the same night.
However, what we know at this point is Danny Williams entered the villa on Sunday, June 9, 2019, which means he’ll evidently need a partner to couple up with.
Considering there are only six female contestants to seven male competitors it’s possible the next elimination is near.
Also, given that the women got to pick who they wanted to couple up with last it’s likely the men will choose on this occasion.
Then, with the boys Anton Danyluk topped the list to be the second boy to leave the villa at 7-4.
Dancing with the Stars professional Curtis Pritchard‘s chances of leaving are low, with odds of 50-1.
How does the voting system for Love Island work?
When the elimination happens next it will be decided by the Islanders.
However, usually Love Island viewers can take part in all public votes via the free app, once per device.
At the end of an episode, Love Island will reveal if there is an active vote which is usually used to allow viewers to pick who leaves, who returns and which pair will be sent on a date.
The official Love Island app is available to download for Android and Apple iOS users.

What days in the week is Love Island on ITV2?
You’ll be able to get your fix of the show every night on ITV2 where the main programme, hilariously narrated by Iain Stirling, will give us the lowdown on all the goings-on in the villa – from couples cracking on to singletons getting mugged off.
Saturday night’s show differs from the rest of the week, as it is a round-up of all the best bits from the villa that week – and maybe some unseen footage.
If that’s not enough, you can also watch Caroline Flack‘s spin off show Aftersun on Sunday nights at 10pm after the main show has aired, where she discusses the latest action with celebrity guests, as well as those eliminated from the villa.
