Love Island USA star Josh Goldstein has quit the show, which is filming in the States now, following the tragic death of his sister.

Josh, 24, was woken up by producers who told him the news, before he was filmed telling his co-stars.

The Massachusetts native broke down in tears as he told his on-screen pals how much his sister meant to him, saying she was the reason why he joined the show.

He said he'd found "the love of his life" with Shannon St Clair, 25, who also left the show with him.

The official Love Island USA Twitter account shared a statement which read: "We send out love and condolences to Josh and his family from all of us at Love Island."

Josh and Shannon, who had been together since the first day of the series, had been tipped to win the show.

They made the decision to leave the series, which is being filmed on location in Hawaii, on day 31.

Fans have since shared their sympathies with Josh and Shannon, with many applauding the blonde beauty for sticking by her man's side.

"Wow Shannon is a real one," one said. "First time on Love Island USA where a couple leaves together.

"If they had just met maybe Shannon would have stayed but they were so close she needed to be with him. Love that Will and Shannon apologised too. Condolences to Josh."

A second said: "They woke up Josh in the middle of the night to give him that news. Imagine waking up to something like that."

And another wrote: "Wow this is incredibly sad. May Josh's sister rest in peace."

Meanwhile, others slammed the channel, CBS, for airing the moment Josh told his co-stars.

One said: "Not gonna lie CBS is really s*** for making Josh go on TV and announce to everyone his sister's passing and then move on with the episode like nothing happened."

Another said: "Cancel the rest of the season 'cause there's no interesting people left. RIP to Josh's sister."

This year's is the third season of the US version of Love Island, filming in Hawaii after first being filmed in Fiji before relocating to a Covid-secure hotel in Las Vegas for season two.
