In fact, sources claiming to be friends of the popular islander tell the Sun they 'can't get hold of him'.
Niall fell ill inside the villa only nine days after arriving, leading to producers deciding it was time for him to go. It's a shame as he was doing really well and taking the show by storm.
The news of the quirky Islander's sudden departure is set to be announced on Tuesday night's episode of the ITV2 reality show, and will be revealed to the housemates by a visibly surprised Dr Alex George.
After just one week in the Love Island villa, there has been adequate drama to make the case for LAMDA opening a school in Majorca.
Georgia Steel, 23, who was coupled up with the Love Island contestant before his exit, admitted: "Obviously I was coupled up with him so obviously I came closer to him than most people here but it wasn't just that".
Alex added: "I'm obviously sad that Niall's left the villa".
'He was actually my friend, my buddy'. We got on really well. "And I look forward to catching up with him and having some fun with him outside".
If you didn't watch it past year, here is everything you need to know about the show - from how it works, if 2017's contestants are still loved up (clue: no) and what "melt" actually means.
Initially, Niall paired up with Kendall Rae-Knight, 26, before newcomer Adam Collard, 22, stole her away from him in the first week.
Niall had said before entering the villa his biggest fear was being dumped first, saying: "My biggest worry is being the first one voted out".
ITV have also revealed they "have no current plans" for Niall to appear on spin-off show Aftersun with Caroline Flack.
Love Island continues tonight on ITV at 9pm.
She told him: "You say about Niall not being honest the other night, but you literally did what he did. and didn't have the balls to tell me before that you were going to do it". Saturday nights sees weekly recap show The Hot List.
