'Love Island' bosses are desperate for Charlie Frederick to make a shock return to the villa as part of a last-minute twist after he was given the axe too early last week.

The handsome blonde was given the boot from the dating show over the weekend after he was partnered up with hard-to-please model Hayley Hughes, but now producers would like to bring him back because they don't think he was given enough time to shine.

A source told The Sun Online: "Charlie was a hit with viewers and behind the scenes everyone thinks it's really unfortunate he had to leave.

"There's been a lot of talk about how he could possibly make a comeback - just like Mike Thalassitis did in last year's series.

"What they don't want to happen is make it predictable though, so if Charlie does come back to the villa it's going to be in an explosive way. Bosses know what the public want and they have listened. Watch this space when it comes to Charlie."

After he was given the boot, the 23-year-old hunk admitted he was "gutted" to leave the competition so early and was convinced he'd still be there if he wasn't paired with Hayley.

However, Hayley claimed Charlie was "bitter" and he was naive to think he would have been saved by the public if he had been coupled up with someone else.

But Charlie was adamant it was Hayley's fault because she wasn't "liked as a person" and they ended up in a big war of words on the spin-off show 'Aftersun'.

And the pair were still at loggerheads the next day as they refused to sit next to one another while being interviewed by Lorraine Kelly on TV show 'Lorraine'.
