Dami asked the hotel waitress, 23: ‘You’ve never been in love?’

Indiyah replied: ‘I feel I’ve had loads of love for someone but I don’t think I was ‘in love’.’

In a move that may be Dami’s way of hoping to win Indiyah’s heart, he asked for her to elaborate.

‘What would it take for you to be in love,’ the senior microbiologist, 26, then questioned. 

Indiyah answered: ‘A lot of contributing factors. 

Goodbye: Speaking as he left the villa Ikenna said: 'I will miss the boys and Dami so much and I wish them all the best!'
