Love Island's Keenan hopes to continue relationship with Claudia after undeniable spark



Love Island star Keenan Brand is hoping to stay close to Claudia Fogarty following their shock exit from the villa.

ITV viewers saw four Islanders dumped on Thursday night, as Olivia and Maxwell chose which boy and which girl would be leaving the villa with them for good.

Claudia and Keanan lost their place on the show ahead of the final, after host Maya Jama returned with some huge news.

All of the Islanders were gathered in their couples, and they were told more than one person would be sent home in a mass dumping.

Initially, Maya confirmed there had been a public vote and that one couple was to leave immediately.

Maya confirmed that Olivia and Maxwell were being dumpedthen and there, after getting the lowest amount of votes from the public.

The carnage continued as she quickly confirmed the power was now in their hands and no one else's.

This was because while they were going home, they now had to pick two more Islanders to leave with them.

Claudia, Keanan, Rosie, Casey, Tanya and Shaq were therefore at risk, but Olivia and Maxwell decided that Claudia and Keenan should be the ones to head home.

It was then time for all four Islanders to say their goodbyes to the rest of the group, before leaving the show and the villa for good.

After leaving the villa, Keenan shared his hopes of continuing a close bond with Claudia on the outside.

"Claudia and I had the best chats but we both quickly realised we were just going to be good friends. It was nice to get on with someone on that level, she’s a great girl and she deserves the best.

"I think Casey was on her mind during the ‘Snog, Marry, Pie!’ challenge so I thought I would give her a nice snog. We are very good mates now, we have a few nights out planned so I’m sure we will continue our friendship."

Keenan went on to admit that he felt a spark with Claudia while in the villa, despite having his eyes on Samie and Jessie before entering the villa.

"When I went in and spoke to the girls I felt that Claudia and I got on the best which is why I picked her," he explained.

"I fancied Rosie so it was weird watching Rosie and Casey together because Claudia liked Casey and I liked Rosie.

"Before I went in I fancied Samie and Jessie but when I went on the date with them both I didn’t feel any sparks, it was more friend vibes."
