Love Island’s Brett Staniland still hopes to strike up a romance with fellow islander Priya Gopaldas, despite her calling him ‘boring’.
Things got awkward on Monday night’s episode when Priya pied him off and asked for a selfie with him seconds later.
After being voted as one of the least compatible couples in the villa, the public vote sent them both packing.
Speaking after his exit, Brett confessed he is keen to give things a go with his former love interest but only if she puts some graft in.
He shared: ‘I’d need things to be a bit different.
‘I would love to keep getting to know her and date her properly, but equally I’d need a different dynamic.

‘I’d need more from her, I need effort from her. I want her to plan stuff. Even just a simple thing like a run and coffee date. Just so it feels that reassurance that she also wants to be there and do stuff with me.’
However he confessed that they both will be ‘taking a step back’ after leaving the villa.
‘It’s totally fine, now both of us taking a little bit of a step back will actually help our relationship, whether we do just remain friends in the future or we try and date or whatever. I think it will be beneficial for us,’ he added.
Asked what the most memorable moment of his time on the show is, he sweetly revealed it was meeting Priya, calling it ‘a blessing’.

‘Regardless of what happens, I know I’ve got a really good friend there at the very least, who I will go to in the future, and that’s a long-lasting relationship for sure,’ the former islander said.
He went on that he liked ‘just being around everyone.’
‘It’s just fun not having any distractions, not having anything else on your mind apart from the people and the place there,’ Brett said.
Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2.
