Love Island star Millie Court's dad has revealed he "wanted to dive into TV to cuddle her' after she was left in tears during Friday night's episode.

The latest instalment of the ITV2 dating series saw the boys return to the main villa from Casa Amor, and Millie was delighted when Welshman Liam Reardon walked in alone.

The pair enjoyed an emotional reunion, but Millie's grin soon turned to tears as new girl Lillie Haynes strolled in and admitted she was shocked to still be single.

Millie was aware that Liam had shared a bed with another woman thanks to the arrival of a postcard featuring pictures, but she didn't know that Liam had kissed Lillie on several occasions.

She was later seen crying as she confided in the girls and admitted she felt mugged off by Liam.

"I wanted to dive into the TV tonight and just cuddle My Girl real tight. #itwillbeokdarling," he wrote.

"Mils will shed her tears and it is difficult for me to helplessly watch. But I know deep down nothing will diminish her beautiful smile long term, she is too much of a 'Happy Soul'.

"Millie has a large loving family and a fab group of friends behind her for support. We are all so proud of her. XX"

Millie's father also said people should still "be kind" to others online and thanked fans for their continuous support.

"THANK YOU ALL for the support you have shown towards my Daughter Millie since her entrance to the villa. She will be so thrilled to read it all when she comes out.

"Thank You, Thank You, Thank You."

Liam seems determined to work things out with Millie and even told her that he wants to make their partnership official.

As they sat down on the swing chair together, Liam told her: "Coming back through them doors, I wanted to make you and me official."

Making a face, Millie responded: "Well, that ain't gonna happen now, is it?"

"For that, I needed to know 100% where I'm at," he continued.

Baffled, Millie said: "So, in order for you to make yourself my boyfriend you thought, 'Let me just kiss another bird.' Like, you mustn't have liked me that much!" to which Liam replied: "Course I do."

But she replied: "No you don't! Why would you kiss someone else if you like them that much? If I'd kissed another boy then I'd know that I had doubts with you, so then I wouldn't come back here on my own because I clearly don't like you that much if I'm kissing someone else!"

Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
