Jacques O'Neill has said that going on Love Island was the worst decision of his life

Jacques O'Neill has revealed that going on Love Island was the worst decision he has ever made as he opens up about mental health issues during his time in the villa.

Following his shocking departure from the villa, after clashing with new boy Adam Collard and former flame Paige Thorne, Jacques has revealed that Love Island was the worst decision of his life.

'Doing Love Island was the worst decision of my life'

In a first interview since quitting Love Island, he explained that he suffered greatly all throughout the process of the show. He explained:

I was ready to break down. I was feeling so mentally drained, I just wanted to go home and get myself right. It broke me and I was already broken. I was crying my eyes out. I couldn’t cope. I was literally feeling awful. It was the worst I’d ever felt in my life.

Before adding:

Doing Love Island was the worst decision of my life. Any little thing in the villa, in the end, started bothering me and I was just getting in so much of a rut. I know the way I spoke to Paige was wrong. I tried to apologise and she kept asking why I did it. ADHD isn’t just about not being able to concentrate. It’s also about feeling anxious quite a lot, being on edge a lot.

In response to the shocking revelations made by O'Neill, an ITV spokesperson has said:

We cannot comment on any individual's medical records owing to confidentiality and our own duty of care towards the Islanders, however we have rigorous and extensive checks in place to assess Islanders' physical and mental health in advance of being cleared to enter the Villa.

And added:

This is something we take extremely seriously. As we said at the time, Jacques made the decision to leave and we respected that decision. Islanders are welcome to leave should they choose to do so and we would never put pressure on someone to stay in the Villa.
