Mitch and Mark regularly clashed with Tanya and Vito on the show, but urged fans of the show to "give her a chance".

"She made a mistake. Have you ever made a mistake & tried to cover it up, it gained momentum and before you knew, there was no way out, you’d dug such a big hole you couldn’t see any way out," they wrote.

"Imagine doing this on the biggest show on Australian television … This is what happened to Tanya."

"If you’ve ever made errors in judgement in your life that has embarrassed you, please consider what Tanya has gone thru & is dealing with before you judge her, she deserves a chance," they continued.

"We know this is difficult and we’ve had time to talk with Tanya and support her to move forward, please join us and give Tanya a chance, we all deserve it."

Tanya commented on Mitch and Mark's post, writing: "A million thank you's to you both for this post. Truly you could have shared anything and you chose to be kind and understanding. Thank you.

"We know we had our moments but it's just a moment captured in time - it's not forever... I'm so grateful to call you friends. Your forgiveness means more to me than money."

Her comments on social media come a day after a source told Daily Mail Australia that Tanya had dropped out of all media interviews in light of her involvement in the scandal.

In the end it was Luke and Josh who finally revealed the true story behind the cheating scandal.

In their final sit-down interviews with producers before leaving their completed houses for the final time, the Love Island twins decided it was "time to share the truth", with Josh explaining it had been Tanya who took a photo, after they had seen the schedule in the production office.
