‘Play with Monopoly, not with me,’ Davide vented to the boys, which came after antics such as Ekin-Su sharing spaghetti with Jay across the table and confirming she would like to get to know him.

After the arrival of bombshells Jay and Remi, Luca and Ikenna were on very different pages. 

‘No one is safe,’ the fishmonger remarked, while salesman Ikenna claimed: ‘I’m not threatened.’ 

Never the time-waster, Ekin-Su told Jay her woes with Davide: ‘There have been times when he hasn’t been putting effort in. You know when you’re just like, “are you here?”‘. 

The Italian stallion also dropped in his own version of her remark on arrival: ‘I’m not here for seasonal boyfriends.’

‘Remi’s friends are bad,’ one penned, ‘no one told him not to rap on national TV?’

Of her relationship with Ikenna, she said: ‘We are both on the same page and we both know that it’s early days and we’re not completely closing ourselves off, so it’s not a done deal, time will tell.’

Remi replied: ‘That’s good to know that, as soon as I came in here I had my eyes on you, you know. I can’t lie. So, what’s your type?’

Indiyah flirted back: ‘You’re obviously a good-looking boy.’
