The Love Island scenario can change a lot in the space of a few episodes… since our last best bits; Liam left of her own free will on Friday night after being reprimanded by Gemma, two new girls Afia and Ekin-su, and the powers that be in the editing suite. Who are Afia and Ekin-su? Well, the former has since been removed from the island and Ekin-su has been preparing a lot with Nadi since entering the villa.
Via a roundup, below is an overview of who’s been linked with after the boy-led reunion last week…
• Dami chose to be with Amber
• Ikea chose to stay with Indiah
• Andrew chose to be with Tasha
• After Luca, Ozzy, Paige and Tasha flip-flop like a flowing cod suddenly decide that Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma was the one for them
• With David’s transitory partner no longer available, the Italian new girl moves in with Ekin-su. Given that he was bench-pressing at the gym earlier that day. It wasn’t long before they were taking a deep dive into each other’s faces

• This left Paige and new girl Afia alone – that is, took them both on a date until Jacques arrived on Sunday night, and later decided to join the paramedic Paige. Jacques is a 23-year-old rugby player from Cumbria who dated (yes, you guessed it) Gemma Owen about a year and a half ago (so, when she was 16) and he’s not interested in her anymore…
Jax’s Attacks: Tasha, Paige, Ekin-su, Afia and Gemma entice…
While it doesn’t really qualify as the best bit, viewership was thrilled to see Gemma Owen only at the notion of her ex-boyfriend being there. However, they were dismayed: It wasn’t a fluke to 19-year-old Adyg.
As soon as she put on extra mascara for their meeting after their morning date with Afia and Paige, Gemma called her “ye d*ckhead” and it wasn’t long before they were rocking a pretty aul.
Where is Jax’s head? Wherever there is a handle to wind it, it appears. The only thing that appears to be another two-dimensional personality is his impressive set. In short, he’s a lad with boys (complete with sentences like “I want brekkie, where are the girls?”), and a mommy’s boy when he’s with girls.
Dami being Dami, just taking off her best friend’s face…
Now, clearly, we’re a little biased, as he’s the current Irish representative on the show, but isn’t he making us proud?!
During perhaps one of the best (producer-inspired) games of Never Have I Ever, he was the only man to take a sip from his drink when Ekin-su asked if anyone had engaged in a same-sex kiss.
While Ikena is all “Are you taking a sip?!” Dami casually reveals that he had kissed his best partner, and that he “would do it again if he was here”. Later, at the beach hut, he announces “So what? I’m proud of it!”
Just when you thought he might not be a beacon of ‘you do’ energy, Dami sets Luca straight when he’s giving Andrew stick for not “caring” that Tasha is pulled over by Jacques for a chat. went. He was essentially saying “You’ll care, Luca, but Andrews Andrew.”
To top things off nicely, the producers then send Demi and Amber on a date, where they share a little peck and try to pretend they care about the game of tennis, keeping them in the scorching heat. was forced to play.
For the details our knight in shiny armor shared with his fellow men upon arriving home from his date? Well, he said of winning the tennis game, “And I got a kiss. Some tongue. A little bit of tongue in there.”
Nargh, Dami, and you were doing great!
Ekin-su is just doing…
Since landing at the villa, he has taken men captive, albeit sometimes by force. Luca and David’s eyes almost fell out of their pockets as soon as they looked at her, and the 27-year-old Turkish soap actress exchanged every look. Leaving cheesy lines about Turkish pleasure, wife material, and being sensual, Ekin-su is pure chaos, she doesn’t give two hoots, and it makes for a nice change. In other words, she’s Maura Higgins playing the drums and we’re here for it.
David sprouting a personality…
Since the Italian stallion came forward at the end of the first episode, he didn’t come out in the best light, which some would consider the fountainhead of some Italian conservatism.
He continued to bang about family, marriage, and women being “traditional,” with the 19-year-old he chose another girl to swing around the outdoor gym (Eikin-su) a few hours after he arrived and cooked her. Pancakes for breakfast.
Oh, he seemed to pounce on every question during Never Have I Ever (square, sex with his best friend’s girlfriend, foot fetish, etc.).
Well, everything changed in last night’s episode. Picture this… firepit, late at night. Jax and Ekin-su turn a blind eye to each other, saying that they would love to share a bed together with someone else. Q David looked at her saying, “Is there anything I can have you before you go to bed? Drinks, Chipzzzz…”
There are more new bangs being made right now, and among them is another Italian who describes himself as a “main course” and David as a “starter.” Not likely, friend.
We’re into week one now and Twitter is finally warming up to the proceedings — mostly because last night’s episode featured at least 40 PC less Gemma Owen.
Love Island returns tonight at 9 p.m. on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
