Love Island’s Niall Aslam Finally reveals his reason for leaving the show


23-year-old Love Island contestant Niall Aslam described himself as “quirky and funny” he managed to win over current contestant Georgia with his classic chat up lines “do you like chicken dippers?” but then shocked viewers with his sudden exit.

Niall has now revealed on Instagram that the reason why he left Love Island was actually due to him having Asperger syndrome, something he never wanted to accept.

“For far too long I have suffered in silence and not acknowledged a massive fact about my life which going into the villa has led me to finally realise and accept.

Niall Aslam has revealed the reason he left Love Island

“When I was a young child I was diagnosed with asperges syndrome, a fact that until this post has never shared outside of my close family. Growing up was extremely difficult for me and I often felt out of place. I always felt that people didn’t understand me, yet I was afraid to reveal my true scales as I did not want the label or stigma that was attached to it.

“But now I think it is important that I come forward, not only so that I can finally be honest with myself and to those around me, but also so that other individuals in my position can embrace their true colours. It’s not been an easy ride for me to come to terms with this fact but I am glad that I can now accept who I am, and am looking forward to my next chapter.

“I would just like to thank the team at ITV for always backing me and giving me the opportunity to rid my myself of my insecurities and embrace the fact that I am different yet I am still a rainbow fish. I can’t explain how grateful I am for the support from the whole team over this period.

“I would also like to thank the British public for the love you have all shown me over the past few weeks, it has been overwhelming.

“Now it’s time for this rainbow fish to dive deep into the big blue ocean and show the world what I’m all about – there’s more layers to come!
