Controversial former Love Island contestant Malia Arkian announces pregnancy and engagement

She was thrown out of Love Island over a fight with Kady McDermott

Former Love Island star Malia Arkian has announced that she is pregnant.

The controversial contestant - who was famously thrown out of the villa just hours after she went in over a fight with Kady McDermott in 2016 - is five months pregnant with a baby girl.

And that isn't Malia's only happy news as she also revealed she is set to wed Bradford City footballer Hope Akpan.

The singer returned to the public eye earlier this week after her on-screen rival again brought up their fight, claiming Malia "punched" her in the face following their argument over spilled wine.

Kady shared a short clip of their row, which has now been removed, in which Malia branded her a "[bleep] bitch".

In response, Kady shouted: "I swear to God, if you want to get rowdy...that's a [bleep] joke. Do you honestly think I'd waste my wine over you? It was a [bleep] accident."

She's sat thinking how to make a living, I never punched her. She's a compulsive liar.

Kady then tweeted: "She punched me in the nose after and gave me a nose bleed but they didn't show it as too graphic."

In response Malia has slammed the claims and branded Kady a "compulsive liar" as she insisted she never punched her.

She told MailOnline: "She's sat thinking how to make a living, I never punched her. She's a compulsive liar. She needs professional help."
