Love Island's Curtis Pritchard was reduced to tears when Amy Hart told him she was leaving the villa so that he could meet someone else and be "happy."

The air hostess decided to walk out of the sun-soaked shack earlier this week after the professional ballroom dancer broke her heart when he told her that he couldn't promise her his head wouldn't be turned if another woman took his fancy.

Amy - who believes she was in love with Curtis - spent three days sobbing over the hunk before her heart was crushed even more when her friend Maura Higgins told her that she wanted to get to know him because she's always fancied him.

Realising that the only way she could heal from the heart ache was to leave the villa, Amy told Curtis: "When you love someone you have to let them go."

A tearful Curtis said: "Do not leave this place, please."

To which Amy replied: "I have to go."

Speaking in the beach hut, Amy - who was half-boyfriend and girlfriend with Curtis - added: "I have been on such a huge journey... I did not imagine that first night I would meet this boy [Curtis] that would change my life and change my mindset.

"I want him to be happy and I want him to meet someone else so I'm leaving here today not holding any grudges against anyone, not against Curtis, not against Maura, no one. I never thought I would fall in love, I never thought someone would make me feel so special that I would fall in love with them and I did and it makes me realise that that will happen for me again, just not in here."

Curtis and Amy then walked down the Fire Pit hand-in-hand before announcing her decision to the rest of the islanders.

She said: "I have made some of the best friends I have ever had... I love you all dearly. Obviously, as you all know, I did fall in love. And when you love someone you have to let them go.

"My 'Love Island' journey finished last night when I sat at that fire pit and I looked at it and thought, 'Even if I had to take the last week, I would take it if it meant I could take those first four weeks over again.'

"I want to leave in a positive way, surrounded by the people I love, like this... I love you all so much and I cannot tell you what you've all done for me."
