A second Love Island wannabe has left the show – before he has even entered the show.
Zach reportedly decided not to go on the show because he wanted to protect his modelling career, having posed for the likes of Jack Wills, Ralph Lauren and ASOS.
He was supposed to ruffle feathers as a late arrival but wasn’t due to enter the show on Tuesday night’s episode.
Oh no! A second Love Island wannabe has QUIT the show – four days after islander Liam sensationally left the villa
Shock: Islander Liam Llewellyn made the decision to leave the villa on Friday after not ‘feeling himself’
The site reports that he told pals: ‘I was meant to be going on Love Island this year and flying out this week.
‘After long conversations with my family and thinking about what I wanted out of my career, I decided against it.
‘Would’ve been an easy year to win seeing as none of the guys have any game on there. But I’ve got to do what’s best for me.’
It was first reported that Zach had been lined up for the show in May and had wanted to take a hiatus from fashion modelling to embark on a summer of love.
Tough choice: Zach hadn’t entered the show yet but was due to be a late arrival – however, he has decided to focus on his modelling career instead
A source said at the time: ‘Zach is really good-looking and is a real charmer when it comes to the ladies.
‘But he has a heart too. He used to carry a bit of extra weight when he was younger but he hit the gym and trimmed down after cleaning up his diet.’
Zach is signed to Nevs Modelling Agency and is also the owner of STOWAWAY – an in-the-making clothing brand.
No more: Zach is a keen boxer and DJ, with his Instagram grid filled with content from his shoots, fitness regime and everyday life

Meanwhile, Liam, the first Islander to leave the show, spoke candidly about his decision to leave the show during an emotional interview on Sunday’s Aftersun.
On Friday, the student gathered everyone around the firepit ahead of the first recoupling, where he admitted he was not giving 100% of himself and was having a ‘hard time’ with his struggle to find a romantic connection.
Luckily the show is able to draft in last minute replacements due to its popularity and Liam has already been replaced by Scotsman Jay Younger

The reality star also revealed how he always knew Gemma Owen, who the public chose to couple up with him, was not feeling a romantic connection with him.
Speaking from Newport, he said: ‘I was buzzing when I coupled up with Gemma. I got the feeling her head was elsewhere. I can’t believe who her dad was, [footballer Michael Owen]. I can’t believe I didn’t work it out.
‘It’s crazy. I didn’t expect the support. It’s a big eye-opener for me how many people were on my side and had my back.
‘I was looking at Gemma when I walked in and hoping it was her I would couple up with.’
Discussing the arrival of Italian bombshell Davide Sanclimenti, who recoupled with Gemma before recoupling once more with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Liam said: ‘The minute he walked in I had a gut feeling he would go for Gemma.’
Liam’s father jetted out to Mallorca to be with his son following his shock departure from the show.
Devoted dad Dai, a professional rugby player, set off to comfort his son – after the family said they couldn’t be ‘prouder’.
Not to be: Liam revealed how he always knew Gemma, who the public chose to couple up with him, was not feeling a romantic connection with him
