Love Island ended on a bit of a cliff-hanger yesterday, with news that tonight’s episode features another re-coupling, with the ‘boys’ getting to choose who they want to be with.
What we know so far is: Paige and Jacques are on the rocks, Ekin-Su and Jay are at loggerheads and Tasha’s ‘head may be turning’ since the arrival of Charlie… Apart from Luca and Gemma and Dami and Indiyah, is any couple truly safe? Only time will tell…
One thing I ‘love’ about Love Island is the memes… The other is the way Iain Sterling absolutely drags the cast, his comedic puns make the programme all the more watchable.
Fans of the show have struggled to get into it this year though, because it seems like they’re ‘recycling’ the alumni by replacing them with doppelgängers. They’ve also praised Ekin-Su’s dramatic antics, stating: “her back must be hurting from carrying the whole show!”
She first made headlines very early on since her arrival by sneaking off to the terrace for secret kisses with Jay (whilst coupled up with Davide). However, the honeymoon period didn’t last because, in yesterday’s episode, Jay pulled her aside to explain that he’s planning on getting to know Paige…
To be fair to him, Jay did the decent thing by speaking to both Ekin-Su (and Jacques – who Paige is currently coupled with). But, the way Jacques was so quick to accept Jay’s proposition really hurt Paige, unsurprisingly.
If that’s not enough drama, Tasha [who has been coupled with Andrew since the beginning of the series] has recently been on a date with newcomer Charlie, and she’s thinking of jumping ship. Fans were routing for them since day dot, so for them to crumble would be a real shame.
Love Island airs on ITV2 at 9pm, all week for two months.
PSA: 2023 is going to be a long, hot year with not one, but TWO seasons of Love Island set to air. The first of which will launch in January, taking place in South Africa, and then the usual Summer season in the Spanish Villa.
