At this time of the year, a blonde beauty, usually called Charlie, enters the villa to win over the girls with her aristocratic accent and somewhat vulgar character.
In 2019, we had model Charlie Frederick. Last year, “Charlie” appeared as hat designer Chuggs Wallace. What do they have in common? They rarely stay at the villa for long due to the complete lack of “chatter”.
As for this year’s Charlie? He is a real estate developer from London. It’s either him or Charlie Frederick from 2019, who can say more?!
Tuesday evening challenge…
Now that Ikenna and Amber have been thrown off the island, the remaining bunch of great things have embarked on an intricate battle of truth and dare, involving a bucketful of balloons that some poor runner had to spend puffing up all day.
Aim? For the islanders to burst said balloons through the majesty of clumsily climbing into a sexy pose.
Among the most revealing nuggets to appear in the game were Dami and India getting the green light to have lap dances and lash out at each other.
Ekin-Su was also usually angry when Jay decided to kiss Paige when his balloon burst asked him to kiss the islander he loved the most besides his partner. Oh, and Jacques is an islander who drives Tasha to the point of absurdity and Dami is able to disrupt the evil robot dance.

The lion castles of Antigoni…
While there might be Charlie’s spread on the tips Island of love producers, of course, there is only one Cypriot singer-songwriter named Antigoni. True, you could bet that she has Lucy’s hair from 2019, but her personality is a winner – straightforward, completely carefree, and very calm.
Once she kicked off those tear-inducing plastic stripper heels she wore to the villa, she was asked to pick three guys to go on a speed date with.
She immediately chose Davide, Dami and Jay. As it turns out, she has more of a brother-sister relationship with the first couple, while Jay decided to get dirty during their date, and it seems to have been mutual.
She may be looking at Jay, but I think that his talk about middle management will start to bother her in time. This, and he hastened to tell the boys when he returned that Antigoni was the one who was lying. Pot. Kettle. etc.
However, the best moment in all three dates is when Davide and Dami create serious Statler and Waldorf vibes from the side during Jay wuaton’s attempt.
Luka greets Charlie…
All the boys were delighted when they greeted the newcomer, Antigoni, yesterday morning. They swarm around, each stating that they are not “marrying” anyone, and everyone is clearly weighing their options. Love Island, right?!
However, upon learning of the newcomer’s imminent arrival (from Gemma; Ekin-Soo wanted to keep Charlie’s entrance a secret, stating that all the excited squeals from the locker room were caused by “the bug that landed on my ass”), all the boys grumbled in the bedroom, and Luka even proclaimed, “Fuck off, Charlie.”
Davide, as usual, was more philosophical.
The boys were then left to interrupt from the terrace while Charlie tried to access his chat algorithm under the gaze of five steely gazes.
Davide’s training program…
The producers may have only given us a snippet of Davide and Jay squeezing each other (in an effort to induce some form of hernia?), but we’d like more of that kind of stuff, please…
Davide burns Ekin-Su…
I could very well be accused of favoritism, given the amount of coverage I seem to be pouring out on David in these two weeks of Best Beats (from now on, dear readers, moving on to Monday and Thursday nights), but can you blame me?
While physically he’s not a bowl of proverbial scalding, he can come off as arrogant and somewhat preoccupied with girls having “values” and generally self-absorbed considering he often refers to himself in the third person – ALL that aside, he still makes me laugh.
For example, on the way to the boys’ mandatory three-way date after he, Dami, and Jay returned, Davide managed to turn a killer span. He only shouted to Ekin-Su: “You should have seen a kiss, very passionate.” He really knows how to hit Ekin every time.
In today’s episode, we’ll see another British Soap Award-worthy performance by Ekin-Su when she criticizes Jay for essentially acting like he’s on Island of love with other options, pffff, ON THE CHEEK!
Island of love returns tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
