LOVE Island star Anton Danyluk has been DROPPED from Ex On The Beach just days before filming was due to commence.
The reality TV star, who was a contestant on the ITV dating show in 2019, had signed up to take part in the MTV series this autumn.
But now sources have exclusively told the Sun Online that Anton, 27, was "flown home" after his exes refused to take part in the show.
"Anton flew out to Tenerife, quarantined for three days and was then told he wouldn't be going onto the show and flow home again," the insider said.
"They couldn't get any of his exes to confront him on the show, and that's the whole point! It's a pity but they hope he can join another series."
Anton's exes include Denise Wilkie, 28, who he split with before heading into the villa in 2019, and fellow islander Belle Hassan, 26.
It comes as part of a major crises for this season of the MTV show, as many of the exes began dropping out before filming started last month.
A source previously revealed: "One of Anton's exes has already dropped out of filming because she's got a new boyfriend and doesn't want to be away from him.
"Another Towie star couldn't make filming because of a schedule clash. A Netflix star signed up – but also dropped out before filming."
The inside spilled on how bosses were having to also cope with "the ever-changing travel rules" which caused "nightmare" quarantine schedules.
In September, The Sun revealed that Towie's Yazmin Oukhellou pulled out of Ex On The Beach just hours before she was due to confront ex James Lock.
The 27-year-old star got cold feet about living with her former flame for the show, leaving bosses in the lurch.
An insider told us at the time: "Yazmin was all set to fly out to confront Lockie but pulled out at the last minute.
"She told pals that she couldn't face living with him in the villa and had second thoughts about the show."
The insider went on: "Bosses are now desperately trying to draft in someone else to fill her spot."
Despite the shake-ups, the long-delayed 12th series of the hit MTV show is finally underway, and bosses have padded out their cast.
Drag star A'Whora are said to be among the new names, as well as former The Only Way Is Essex star Ella Rae Wise.
ANTON'S NEW LOOK
Meanwhile, Anton denied having surgery on his face after startling fans with a new look insisting "he would say" if he had.
The handsome Scot, one of the stars of the hit 2019 series of the show, looked chiselled in the new snap.
Speaking to Fubar Radio's Access All Areas, Anton said: "Recently, I've been getting a lot of hate and it's a lot to do with my face.
"A lot of people are accusing me of having work done to my face.”
He told hosts Stephen Leng and Bobby Norris: “I genuinely haven't had work done to my face.
"I'm honest, I will say if I have, I don't care. If I want to have work done to my face, it's my face, it's my body. And if that makes me feel good about myself and I want to do that, good.
“It's my life, I can do what I want. If you want to go out and drink every night and that makes you feel good about yourself, go do that.
"If you want to go to the gym, you go do that, that's your life.”
Anton, who disabled comments on the picture, said: "It's not our business what other people think of us, and we can't control what other people think of us.
"That's it. I can go to my Instagram and I can say: 'Guys, I've not had this work done to my face', but they're either going to believe it or not going to believe it.
"I can't change their opinion on that and that is ultimately what they think. So why waste the energy?”
Speaking about criticism online, he added: “All I do now is simply delete the comment and block the person.
"Remove it, it's that simple, it's gone, forget about it. That person does not impact my life.”
He added: “I've been bullied as a kid. I was a fat kid at school. I got it all the time, so I'm thick skinned now. It would take something drastic to bother me.”
