ANOTHER re-coupling showdown rocked the villa in last night’s episode of Love Island while Chris had tried his luck at getting with Amber.
What happened in tonight’s episode?
The dirty dancing challenge in episode 33 left all the Islanders talking, with Amber feeling good about the fact that she had left Michael’s heart racing with her raunchy dance routine.
Even the results proved that Michael’s heart rate was raised most by Amber’s dancing, which put the firefighter in an awkward position given that he’s been coupled up with social media influencer Joanna for the past week.
During a chat with his good pal Jordan, Michael raised his concerns regarding his feelings for Amber, having told the model: “Amber was the girl I was interested in and now my heart rate has been raised most by her. It’s not ideal.”
Jordan had expressed to Michael that he personally didn’t see the connection between him and Joanna, adding that when the firefighter was with Amber, there appeared to be undeniable chemistry.
He explained: “From what I’ve seen, you and Joanna don’t have as much chemistry as you and Amber did. If you did change your mind, there would be nothing wrong with that.”
Elsewhere, Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury were treated to a night in the Hideaway – a decision made by their fellow Islanders, following a text which read:
“Islanders. Tonight, the Hideaway is open. It’s down to you to choose one lucky couple to have a sleepover. #privatedance #aloneatlast”
In the Beach Hut, the blonde bombshell recalled how the Hideaway was the first place she met Tommy, explaining that “it was like we were revisiting an old friend. We had our first little jacuzzi date there!”
And interestingly enough, while Chris had shown a liking to Maura and Belle upon entering the Love Island villa, Amber also appeared to have been on his radar.
With an enormous amount of confidence, Chris laid it on thick, telling the beauty technician: “I actually wanted to take you on a date yesterday. But I had a think about it and I don’t know where your head is at with the whole Michael thing.”
He continued: “I didn’t want to go in too soon and start something when your heads not in it.”
Interestingly enough, Amber warmed up to Chris during their conversation, but it didn’t seem as if it was enough for her to be officially over Michael.
Meanwhile, the boys took part in the latest challenge, which consisted of all the guys going head-to-head over three rounds to obtain as many “lad points” as possible.
And lastly, as all of the contestants relaxed in the garden, they were stunned to learn that another recoupling showdown was set to rock the villa later in the evening, with the girls deciding who they wanted to couple up with.
Marvin and Curtis stressed their worries to Francesca, who they knew hadn’t really formed a connection with any of the boys yet – so, in an apparent attempt to win her over before the recoupling, it was plotting time for the fellas.
Disco fever had taken over the villa in the late hours of the evening, but all that the Islanders could think about was which boy would be dancing his way out of the villa tonight.
In the Beach Hut, Francesca definitely felt torn between both Marvin and Curtis, well aware that they both weren’t coupled up, putting them both in the danger zone.
She said: “It’s so hard. I need to go with my gut on what feels right and who I think has the potential to make me the happiest person I can be.”
The brunette from Essex ended up picking Curtis, subsequently sending Marvin out of the villa and on the next flight back to the UK.
These were the couples after the recoupling was over:
- Joanna and Michael
- Anna and Jordan
- Molly-Mae and Tommy
- Belle and Anton
- Amber and Ovie (as friends)
- Maura and Chris
- Francesca and Curtis
