Matthew MacNabb has revealed he fancied Millie Court during his time in the villa, but never pursued her due to her romance with Liam Reardon.
The 26 year old was emotionally dumped from the luxurious Majorcan villa on Wednesday 11 August evening's instalment of the hit ITV dating show after Priya Gopaldas, 23, chose to recouple with 27 year old Brett Staniland.
Devastated, Matthew packed his belongings and left the villa, but not before confessing he had hidden feelings for blonde bombshell Millie, 24.
During his exit interview, the star was asked if there could have been a romantic connection with any of the other girls in the villa besides Priya and fashion blogger Kaz Kamwi, 29.
"I felt like it was pretty much Kaz from the start," he started before admitting: "I did like Millie if I’m honest but I didn’t want to get involved in that situation and I’m happy I didn’t because we’re good friends and I love Liam."
Millie has endured a rocky journey with Liam, 21, after his antics in Casa Amor were blurted out by Lillie Haynes, 22, which left his partner in pieces.
Since then, however, the bricklayer has been working hard to get back into Millie's good graces and his efforts have not gone to waste as they appear back on track.
Elsewhere in the interview, Matthew said he didn't regret any of his actions in the villa, despite not pursuing anything with Millie and being dumped.
Matthew, who left fans in hysterics for munching on popcorn while Tyler Cruickshank's Casa Amor escapades were shown, said: "I’m a no regrets type of guy."
He continued: "You learn from what you go through and I’m very proud of myself and how I’ve acted and how I’ve treated people.

"I think the course of action I took led me to where I am now and I’m happy with where I am."
During the recoupling ceremony, Priya decided to pick Brett and she was left crying over the decision as she felt bad that Matthew had to be dumped from the villa, she said: "I don't know why I'm crying, I'm sorry, it was really hard."
Priya said during her recoupling speech: "Well, to be honest, it's been a really tough decision as two incredible boys have shown interest and it's been such a short period of time getting to know both of them.

"But I feel like with one of the boys, conversation flows really easily… I am really comfortable with him and yeah, it helps that I could stare into his eyes all day. So the boy I'd like to couple up with is… Brett."
