Love Island Australia twist as contestant gets booted after power theft in episode one… only to make a surprise return with the invaders
Love Island Australia star Claudia Bonifazio has made a surprise return to the Spanish villa after getting the boot in the first episode.
Claudia was knocked out of the competition after her rival Holly Oakes Ferguson stole her partner Jordan in a tricky pair swap.
The drama began when host Sophie Monk had the ladies ask the gentlemen a series of questions before the couples hooked up.

The first round couples were Claudia and Jordan, Phoebe and Mitchell, Jessica and Conor, Layla and Austen, and Stella and Andre.
Holly was left without a partner because women outnumbered men—only to learn she had the power to steal a man.
The blonde bombshell kept stealing from Jordan, saying she felt he was a “real” guy who was in the villa for all the right reasons.

“Well, I’d love to hook up with this boy because he’s shown me a really real soul that I’m looking for,” she said.
“The boy I’d like to date is…Jordan.”
This man stealing move left Claudia without a partner and she was sent home.

She received the dreaded text message: “Claudia you are single now and need to leave the villa. Please pack your bags and say goodbye to your fellow islanders.’
The islanders were shocked when some of the girls burst into tears.
However, the next day, Claudia returned to the mansion with two handsome intruders ready to shake things up.
