It’s big. It’s taken over weekday nights. It’s seeing plenty of people going home. Love Island is stepping things up a notch for tv specials betting fans as we’ve now had over a month in the Villa and the manoeuvres are coming from all sides. Here’s a breakdown of what happened in the thirty second episode of Season 4.
Two new boys, Kieran and Idris joined the Islanders and got to work on trying to couple up with the girls. Kieran went straight for it with Georgia and Kaz and Idris both had a flirt with Laura, who's seems t be having a hard time lately.
The two had to pick two girls to bring on dates with Idris choosing Laura and Kieran choosing Georgia. There was also fury from many late on as new boy Idris lied to Laura about Jack and Georgia Steel. Laura was taken on a date with Idris in last night’s episode when he claimed Jack had made a move on Georgia, not the other way around, stirring what has become a very stirrable pot.
Megan was at it once again she bedded Wes Nelson twice in the Hideaway – while wearing Eyal Booker’s jumper in a move that once again saw the explosive use of the phrase ‘Muggy Megan’.
Laura, who we’ve talked about being heartbroken by Wes earlier, has now been the subject of interest from two of the new arrivals and is very much back in the game.
Samira, who has suffered a lot at the hands of many events in the villa, was once again left heartbroken last night as Frankie Foster was dumped from the island yesterday, cutting her first real shot at love short. She was devastated – and she let us know it with a tear-filled show that could not be stopped even by the arrival of two new bombshells, Idris Virgo and Kieran Nicholls.
This saw many social media users show their ire at her and given that she didn’t look like she was moving on anytime, soon, she could end up losing a fair few fans through the coming week if she can’t get over Frankie.
Idris’s lie to Laura at the end of the episode is likely to come back to bite him, if not through public perception then surely through gossiping around the villa, which has become commonplace. In other, very unsurprising news, Georgia told every person in earshot that she was loyal. If she was brought into Number 10 she’d tell Theresa May that she had her entire confidence.
There is an unexpected arrival to the villa in the shape of Alexandra Cane, a 27-year-old makeup artist from Hertfordshire. She has her eyes set on plenty of the Villa’s big players already. According to the Daily Express, she’s got big plans for Josh: I’d love to meet someone. I’m setting my sights on Josh. He is so my type looks-wise.” This could have big issues for his budding relationship with Kaz which has already blossomed – doesn’t Georgia feel an awful long time ago eh?
She’s also very interested in Doctor Alex: “I feel like we’d have some really in-depth conversations, I’m knowledgeable, he is knowledgeable. Hopefully I can bring out his personality a bit. I’d like to get to know him”.
After Casa Amor, Jack and Dani look as strong as ever as a couple and it’s not a surprise that they’re 1/7 with 888sport and Ladbrokes to walk away with the prize. The couple either have the hearts of viewers or the wholesome nature that is in such short nature on the Island – see Dani’s comforting and protecting of other girls in the Villa.
Kaz and Josh have been getting on brilliantly, and it’s interesting to note that recently dumped Frankie Foster thinks they will be engaged before national sweethearts Jack and Dani who have all but solidified their golden couple status in the tabloids.
There’s plenty of potential there, and the dates have gone off without a hitch so far, but the arrival of Alexandra could have serious implications for them given the pre villa quotes from the new arrival (as seen above) although Alex would surely jump at the chance if approached given his luck in the villa so far.
The threat of Alexandra makes the 9/1 at top specials sites about Kaz being top woman less appealing suddenly and if those of you are looking to get something a little more outlandish, then perhaps Laura could make another bid. She appears to have her mojo back and more than one option, a game changer she hasn’t had before.
