Love Island’s Afia Tonkmore missed filming on Thursday night’s reunion show — she insisted she was taking part in the show.
The 25-year-old lounge host was instead partying with her friends in London and shared videos of them having fun on TikTok.
Afia entered the villa with Ekin-su Klkuloglu as the first two bombers, but when the 27-year-old Turkish actress was chosen by David Sanklimenti in the recital, Afia failed to find a relationship with anyone in the villa and she was the first that was removed from there. Heaven.
Snub: Love Island’s Afia Tonkmore missed filming on Thursday night’s reunion show — she insisted she was taking part in the show.
Afia confirmed her absence on TikTok as she posted a video of her partying with her friends at a nightclub.
In the comments, a fan asked if she would reunite with her former co-stars at the reunion and she replied: ‘No.’
She said that she was ‘over now’ after appearing on the show about seven weeks ago and staying in the villa for only a few days.
Afia hasn’t posted on Instagram for four weeks, with her last post seeing the star posing with fellow islander Ikena.

Talking to Heat after being dumped, she revealed how she now plans to live in Bali, Indonesia.
She said: ‘I don’t have many plans, but I’m going to go to Bali. I was always going to go to Bali and then this happened.
‘Now my friends and I think this is the best time. I feel like the UK is not my vibe at the moment.’
Jacques O’Neill was the only other cast member from the 2022 series to avoid the reunion show on Thursday.

Eight stars from the series came together for the first time outside the villa to film the annual reunion show, which will be shown Sunday night on ITV2.
Nevertheless, 23-year-old Jacques opted to skip filming after his partner, Paige Thorne, went on romantically with Adam Collard and fresh claims he ‘bullyed’ fellow islander Tasha Gouri.
A source told The Sun: ‘Unfortunately Jacques has decided he is not ready to see Page just yet and specifically not with Adam.
‘After all she has done, she has decided to wait for a more opportune moment to talk to her again.’

MailOnline contacted Jax’s representatives for comment at the time.
The former rugby player left Love Island earlier this month when former contestant Adam, who has a reputation as a womanizer, was cast in the current series by ITV producers and quickly began flirting with Paige.
Hours before the reunion was filmed he appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss life after the dating show, admitting he ‘just wanted my mother’ after his traumatic experience.
Host Kate Garraway began by asking Jax: ‘How are you feeling now because the episode you left was emotional to watch.’

Jacques replied: ‘When I first came out it was very different for me, I was scared of life and what was to come next for me.
‘When I was at Holding Villa all I wanted was my mother. We were getting death threats. I thought to myself that I am going to delete social media.
After Adam’s arrival the reality personality decided to remove himself as he declared: ‘Love Island was the worst decision of my life.’
While Jacques received widespread sympathy after her interview, the public’s mood changed rapidly during the day when she was found mocking fellow Islander Tasha in a private Instagram story that was leaked online.
Jacques filmed himself watching Tasha’s speech to Andrew Le Page at the Love Island final at the Summer Ball.
Above all he quotes David Sanclimenti’s now iconic words: ‘You’re a liar, an actress, go f**k out!’
After the video leaked on Twitter, fans began to turn to Jax, arguing that he had left the villa over his mental health, but did not care about the mental health of others, especially women.
Many said they felt little sympathy for her plight, and claimed that he was bullying Tasha.
One tweeted: ‘So Jacques left the villa to protect his mental health, but is still bullying one of the girls outside. Does mental health matter to girls?’
Tasha’s father lined up, taking to Twitter to share a sly dig at Jax.
Responding to the video clip, he wrote: ‘Some people grow and mature from their island experience, some don’t. It is what it is.’
