Speaking in the Beach Hut, an emotional Priya said: ‘It’s bittersweet because Matt is such a good guy. I’ve so many positive things to say about him.’ 

Leaving the villa, Matt admitted he was surprised Priya chose Brett over him as he thought they had a ‘strong connection’.

He said: ‘Priya’s decision tonight was a shock to me, I felt like we had a really strong connection. They’re like my family in there. I love those guys, that’s the toughest part.’ 

In his exit interview, Matt admitted he wasn’t sure if Priya was always honest with him during their time together in the villa.

Priya said: ‘It’s been a really tough decision because two incredible boys have shown interest. I feel like with one of the boys, conversation flows really easily’

She added: 'I'm really comfortable with him and it helps that I could stare into his eyes all day. The boy I'd like to couple up with is Brett'

He said: ‘It definitely took me by surprise. I felt like she was honest with me at certain times and then she wasn’t at other times. I only knew her for a certain amount of time and you can’t understand a person fully in that time.’

Matt was originally coupled up with Kaz who he broke things off with after learning she still had feelings for Tyler.

Asked if he connected with any of the other girls in the villa, he said: ‘I felt like it was pretty much Kaz from the start. 

‘I did like Millie if I’m honest but I didn’t want to get involved in that situation and I’m happy I didn’t because we’re good friends and I love Liam.’

Matt also insisted he has no regrets about his time in the villa, saying: I’m a no regrets type of guy.

‘You learn from what you go through and I’m very proud of myself and how I’ve acted and how I’ve treated people. I think the course of action I took led me to where I am now and I’m happy with where I am.’

Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
