Danny Williams' Ex Claims He Left Her To Go On 'Love Island'

Love Island's Danny Williams has been accused of dumping his girlfriend so he could 'find fame' on the reality TV show.

Beth Griffin claimed she was "falling" for 21-year-old Danny when he called her up to tell her he was going on the hit ITV2 show. She also claims Hull model said he would "pretend to couple up with girls on the show" and that he was only going on to "make some money" for his family.

"What he has done is worse than cheating because I can't get away from it," the 24-year-old told The Sun on Sunday.

"I have to see and hear about him getting with other people on a daily basis because the show is on all the time and everyone is talking about it.

Beth says Danny's decision to go on the show came as a complete shock, but he reassured her he wasn't going on to find love.

"He called me out of the blue and said he was going on 'that show'," she said.

"He claimed it was all for his career and that I had to understand. He said he wanted to improve the lives of his family and that he didn't want to hurt me.

"He told me: 'No one falls in love, it's all fake.' He also said, 'It's purely a game and a career move that could be a really really good thing for both of us.'

"But I have been crying ever since and I am completely heartbroken. Danny only cares about himself and what he has done is just vile."

Since going on the show, Danny immediately took a liking to Yewande Biala who he coupled up with, before leaving her for model Arabella Chi. Currently, Danny is coupled up with Jourdan Riane, who he met while the girls were at Casa Amor.

Beth says that her relationship with Danny began casually, before a romantic getaway to Malta took things to the next level, with Beth saying Danny "told me he loved me and that he wanted us to be exclusive."

"We became much more coupley and affectionate in public after that," she said. "Danny was a gentleman back then and he would never flirt with or even look at other girls.

"He told me he loved me and that he wanted us to be exclusive. I felt the same way. Now I realise that everything he told me was lies."

Beth said she first realised something was wrong when Danny took a modelling job in Milan, and then failed to contact her for a few days.

She revealed: "We were talking as normal when he got there but suddenly he stopped messaging. I assumed it was because he had such a heavy workload but as time went on I became more concerned.

"Two days later he got back in touch. He sent a text saying: 'It's been the craziest few days I'll explain more when I speak to you.'

"Then he phoned me and told me he was going on Love Island. I was shocked. I burst into tears straight away and my mum had to put down the phone and ask what was wrong.

"I cried all night that night. I was completely heartbroken. I cried so loudly that my brother messaged Danny to ask what was going on."

Beth explained Danny said she "should not worry" and that he was only doing it "to make a name for himself and to make some money so he can provide for his mum and dad".

She added: "I kept asking why he would hurt me like that and put our relationship at risk.

"He said it was all fake and he would just pretend to couple up with the girls on the show, but I don't believe him.

"I know what Love Island is like and these couples often end up having sex and starting real relationships.

"Also, Danny told Arabella that he'd "had the best week" of his life with her. That was exactly what he told me when we got back from Malta."

Beth finished by calling Danny a "rat", saying: "He's jumping from girl to girl and I guess he only cares about boosting his profile and cashing in. I won't take him back and I think Love Island fans should know what he is really like.'

Danny's agent Robert Wilson told The Sun: "Beth was a holiday fling and nothing more. Beth clearly has stronger feelings. We wish her all the best."
