Tensions in Love Island villa after dramatic dumping

Love Island continues on 3e on Friday at 9pm.


The Islanders are reeling after Adam, Darylle, new Ellie and new Alex were dumped from Love Island.

In the Beach Hut, Wes says of the difficult decision he had to make: “Today was the single hardest day of my whole Love Island experience.”

Later, Megan tells Wes: “Apparently Laura has been saying ‘Wes deserves better than Megan.’”

Megan goes to confront Laura and they talk on the swing seat. Laura says: “The way I see it is anyone that goes back to an ex… I don’t think that someone who has been [messed around] by someone else should go back there.”

Megan says: “I had a day with the boy and then another guy came in and I spent three days with him. Of course I’m going to have a better connection with the guy I spent three days with.”

In the Beach Hut, Laura admits: “I have constantly bit my tongue and now I’m being told to bite it even more. No, I have an opinion.”

Later on the terrace, Wes and Megan have a heart-to-heart after Wes chose to couple up with her and save her from being dumped.

Megan says: “I’m glad you did pick me. I rate you massively for doing that. You could have picked the easy option but you didn’t.”

Wes tells her: “I’ve put a lot on the line.”

Megan says: “I haven’t stopped smiling. Alex is a nice guy but I’m glad I’m here with you.”

Meanwhile when checking that Laura is okay, new Jack brings up his date with Georgia: “It was a nice date but I don’t really see it working with me and her and I did make that clear. Then when we got up to leave, I’ve gone in for a kiss on her cheek and she came in towards me straight on and she kissed me on the lips. Then she went for a two kiss thing and I pulled away the second time because I thought ‘This is so not what I need right now.’”

In the Beach Hut, Laura says: “I’m done with Georgia. I’ve been there for her but she is a little girl and I don’t rate her as a person anymore. I am gobsmacked and fuming. Again my mate - actually my best mate - has gone behind my back and tried to snog the guy that I’m coupled up with. I’ve just got over the situation with Wes and now Georgia is cracking on with Jack.”

Laura and Georgia have a chat on the day beds. Georgia says she chose to take Jack on a date because she wanted to choose someone she could have a laugh and banter with: “But I said, however my loyalties lie with Laura because she is one of my best friends in this villa. I’m not ever going to jeopardise that ever. I don’t understand why you’ve been touchy with me all night.”

Laura says: “So you didn’t try and kiss him then?... All you say is you’ve got loyalties. Taking out your best mate’s guy, telling me that it was purely because he made you laugh, then all of a sudden you fancy him, you’ve got a connection and you’re trying to kiss him. Now you’re denying trying to kiss him calling him a liar?”

Georgia calls Jack over. He says they did not kiss on the lips on purpose. He says to Georgia: “Unintentionally, we kissed on the lips. Agreed. After that kiss, you went in for another little kiss and I backed away. If you didn’t feel that or see that, I don’t know why.”

In the Beach Hut, old Ellie says: “Practice what you preach, Georgia. You’re only as loyal as your actions are. Just by saying you’re loyal twenty times a day, doesn’t make you loyal.”

In the kitchen, Laura tells Ellie about Georgia lying to her. As Georgia walks past, Ellie says “it’s b*llshit” and Georgia tells her to “wind your neck in.”

Things are getting heated in the villa. Wes who was also on the date tells some of the other Islanders that Georgia and Jack did kiss each other. He says to Dani and old Jack: “I don’t care if she has leant in or he has leant in, they’ve kissed each other.”

Standing up for her mate Georgia, Dani goes to tell the Islanders gathered in the kitchen that it wasn’t one sided.

Wes comes to the front: “Yes she may have instigated it, yes she may have started it but you kiss someone, you kiss each other.” To new Jack, he says: “I’m not saying you’re wrong for doing it. I’m not saying Georgia is wrong for doing it.”

Dani gets involved, saying in front of Laura: “Two people kissed for a reason! You can sit there and blame one person but two people kissed for a reason.”

Old Ellie gets involved: “But then she shouldn’t have come back and said how loyal she is to Laura.”

Georgia has already stormed into the villa. Now Laura walks away, upset. She is miffed at Dani sticking up for Georgia so much.

In the Beach Hut, Laura says: “Everyone always gets involved with everyone’s situation in here but choose your battles. If you don’t know and you weren’t there, then why would you think you would know over the people involved. What is going on?”

Josh tries to end the arguments by telling everyone they are all adults. In the Beach Hut, he says: “All this drama, all this madness, it’s only between two people and I think a lot of speculation is going on and speculation equals nonsense!”

After a heated night in the villa, the Islanders all go to bed with tension still in the air. Relationships and friendships are all up in the air but will they be able to resolve this?


The next morning, Laura says: “I feel like all my mates have gone against me.”

In bed, Georgia talks about old Ellie to Sam: “She is so annoying. Why did she even get involved?”

Sam says of Ellie: “You and her will not get on now. I think she’s just insecure and you’re loud and a big character and I don’t think she likes it.”

In the Beach Hut, Ellie says: “I don’t really want to speak to Georgia today because she is not someone I want in my life. I don’t care. I don’t need to have a conversation because I don’t want to make up with her. I just want to keep my distance and move on. I don’t need to waste any more energy on that girl because I don’t like her.”

Georgia and Dani talk on the terrace about the commotion last night. Georgia is still insisting that she didn’t go in for the kiss with new Jack: “On that date, Jack was very forward with me. I’m not going to lie to you. He was completely going for it and everything and then at the end of the date we had a kiss. And then he left. It was a kiss. I don’t really think much of it if I’m honest with you. Anyway and then Laura went ‘You kissed him at the end of the date’ and I went, ‘Yeah I did’ and she said ‘Apparently you went in for another kiss’… I don’t graft anyone. He came to kiss me.”

Dani says: “Why would you lie to her?”

Whilst getting ready, Laura says to old Ellie: “The truth always comes out in the end.”

Charlie goes to speak to old Ellie about the drama last night and her involvement. He says: “I’m not having a go at you but when you kick off like that, it looks bad on me.”

Ellie says: “If everyone wants to say Georgia is the angel and I’m in the wrong then…”

Charlie tells her: “They’re not saying Georgia is an angel. No one is saying that. I’ve stuck up for you.”

Ellie says: “All I did yesterday was try to have Laura’s back. Why is nobody actually looking at what Laura is going through again?”

In the Beach Hut, Ellie says of getting involved in the previous night’s drama: “I shouldn’t have got as heated as I did but I stand by the reasons.”

In the Beach Hut, Dani says: “I just think Laura needs to have a little bit more trust in Georgia. I know that when you hear something about a boy you like, you instantly might want to believe the boy but realistically I don’t think your friend is going to lie. I am going to stick by Georgia and I do believe that Georgia is telling the truth… I’ll have to fight Georgia’s corner until everyone believes her.”

Laura pulls new Jack to one side to have a chat about the situation. She says she feels disappointed he didn’t try to comfort her more after the drama of last night. He questions why she hasn’t been as clear with her feelings for him. He says: “I’ve told you that I like you, I’ve told you that I fancy you and I’ve told you that I’m getting to know you every day and I’m enjoying doing that but there’s never been a time where you’ve said to me, ‘I do actually like you.’ Never. It’s only come out of your mouth when I’ve had to ask you and there was the date on the horizon. I’m just asking why it’s taken that for you to tell me.”

Laura says: “I’m just trying to be chilled for once in my life. I just can’t be bothered telling you I like you and then you go off with someone else.”

Jack says: “If anything, yesterday’s date solidified the fact that that’s not the case. If I wanted to kiss Gee, I would have kissed Gee. I’m sorry that I didn’t console and make you feel like everything is okay, but I thought everything was okay.”

Laura has had her fair share of ups and downs in the villa. Will she and new Jack be able to sort things out and get over this hurdle or is another break up on the horizon?


Josh gets a text: “Islanders, tonight you will get each other’s hearts racing in a boys vs girls challenge #GetDownAndDirty #DanceOff”

The boys sit around the fire pit in preparation for the challenge ahead. The girls and boys will have their heart rates monitored as part of the challenge to see who raises whose heart rates the highest.

The girls are up first and one by one will try to get the boys pulses racing. Ellie says: “In my head, I looked like Beyonce.”

Samira says: “People think I’m going to be fantastic because I’m a dancer but honestly, I don’t do freestyle!”

When the girls have finished, the boys will strut their stuff. The team who raises the other teams collective heart rate the highest will win.

In the Beach Hut, new Jack says: “If every boy gives it 100 per cent and not 50 per cent and gives it everything they’ve got, we will win. I have every belief that we will win.”

In the Beach Hut, Charlie says: “I’m absolutely buzzing!”

In the Beach Hut, Alex says: “I smouldered, I did a bit of smouldering. I was having a bit of fun with it. That is the first and last time you’ll ever see Dr Alex stripping, that’s for sure.”

In the Beach Hut, Jack says: “This is 15 stone of South East London beef so I thought let’s let them see it.”

At the end of the challenge, results will be revealed. Who got whose heart racing and which team will win?
