Niall Aslam’s time in the Love Island villa was glitzy and gold from the outside.
On the inside, it was torturous.
Despite an initial fan favourite, the 23-year-old had to walk out on the chance of winning £50,000 little over a week into the show.
Citing personal reasons, Niall quit Love Island on day nine. In a heart-touching Instagram post, he later revealed that he had Aspergers Syndrome, and struggled to cope with the pressure of being in the villa.
Now, however, Niall is flourishing – and it’s all thanks to a beautiful bromance with Eyal Booker!
