On Monday night’s episode of Love Island, Rachel Finni became the third 2021 Love Islander to be dumped from the villa. After the rest of the villa had coupled up, new boy Teddy was left to choose between Rachel and Faye—and decided to couple up with Faye, leaving Rachel single and out of the villa.

Rachel Finni reacts to being dumped

In her first interviews after leaving the villa, Rachel revealed that despite her hopes that her spark with Teddy would lead to something more, she saw her dumping coming. She said:

I wasn’t in a friendship couple that was strong enough for me so it was my time.

She admitted that with hindsight she would have chosen Chuggs Wallis to couple up with over Brad McLelland when she came in. Rachel saved Brad after her first day in the villa, only for him to have his head turned by new bombshell Lucinda Strafford just a few days later.

Rachel said:

I would have picked Chuggs over Brad knowing what I know now. You have to graft to stay in there. I was stupid enough to fall for Brad’s graft, because it wasn’t genuine. The day after we coupled, he told me to get to know other people. He wasn’t interested... Chuggs would have actually made the effort to get to know me. I went for Brad because he was more physically attractive.

Would Rachel Finni return to the villa?

She described her time in the villa as a ‘rollercoaster’ but, like Shannon and Chuggs, she’d be raring to go back in if she got the opportunity. She said:

Honestly, I would beg to go in. If you want to send me back in at any point, I’d do it. I’d be unapologetic, strong and forthright. I would definitely go back in and be ready to stir the pot until the pot broke.
