Love Island stars in shock as one boy is DUMPED from the villa


The Love Island villa has been rocked by a dramatic recoupling that has seen one Islander booted from the show after a mere few days. 

Following the arrival of bombshells Tom Clare, Zara Lackenby-Brown and David Salacko there was an uneven ratio of Islanders in the villa, with one boy needed to be axed. 

Despite the threat of a recoupling looming, the news still ‘sent shockwaves around the villa.’

Who will it be? The Love Island villa has been rocked by a dramatic recoupling that has seen one Islander booted from the show after a mere few days

A source told The Sun: ‘One of the Islanders was left red-faced after they weren’t chosen and has gone home.

‘The first recoupling is always tough and it is fair to say this one will have viewers on the edge of their seats.’

Removing an Islander will leave the villa with space for new recruits, with show bosses said to have lined up two former contestants from international versions of Love Island to enter and cause ‘serious drama.’

A source told the publication: ‘The two new international recruits are essentially professional bombshells and won’t just shake up the villa – they’ll blow it apart.

‘Both of them bed-hopped, bonked and had blistering rows on their seasons of Love Island and neither has a shred of British restraint about them.

‘They’re going to create explosive telly, just like they did the first time round.’

There are currently 25 international versions of Love Island and it is not known where the bombshells will come from. However, fans of the series will know Islanders from the American and Australian version of the series, which has been streamed on ITV. 

The news comes after Love Island fans were shocked by explosive scenes on Thursday when a huge fight erupted between Haris Namani and Shaq Muhammad after the beer pong game. 

It’s only been a matter of days in the villa, but the two islanders had to be held apart by the other boys as they almost came to blows in a tense stand-off as they boys had a debrief about the earlier challenge.

The drama kicked off as Haris commented on new bombshell David’s steamy kiss with Shaq’s partner Tanya, causing Shaq to brand the TV salesman a ‘s**t stirrer’.

Newcomer David had earlier been dared to kiss the islander he fancies the most for 30 seconds, and after flirting up a storm with Tanya, it was inevitable that he was going to pick her – much to Shaq’s chagrin.

And as the boys sat down later to discuss the events of the game, Haris asked David what he made of the kiss, causing Shaq to accuse him to trying to cause trouble. 

The two then begin arguing and throwing insults at each other, with things becoming more and more heated.

Haris was heard telling the airport security officer to ‘Shut the f**k up’, to which Shaq angrily responded: ‘You shut the f**k up you f**king p****’

Haris then ordered Shaq not to speak to him like that, with Shag fuming: ‘I’ll speak to you however I want!’ 

The other boys were then forced to then step in and stop things from escalating, with Haris and Shaq dragged to separate parts of the villa to keep them apart.

The girls, who were having their own chats elsewhere, watched on in shock as things kicked off among the lads.

Taking to Twitter following the shock scenes, viewers were quick to share their thoughts on what went down.

One tweeted: ‘Haris knew he was wrong for that. If he really cared to know he could have asked David alone. Showed he has no respect for Shaq. And low key Tanya is mugging Shaq off. I won’t blame him if he starts exploring his options.’

While another commented: ‘Haris wanted a reaction from shaq.’

‘So Haris purposely asked a question that would trigger Shaq and he also told Shaq to shut the f up first,’ wrote a third.

‘That fight between shaq and haris was so random but I’m here for it,’ shared a fourth fan.

With another adding: I don’t believe this tension between Haris and Shaq came out of nowhere. They’re editing out the good stuff.’

It comes after Love Island fans went wild earlier in the episode after Tanya snubbed both David and Shaq in a kissing challenge.

As the series pushes on, Tanya Manhenga is slowly revealing her creative streak, by drawing a very impressive love triangle.

A full week is yet to pass, but the scouse student has already pied overzealous airport worker Shaq Muhammad on two separate occasions, despite being coupled up with him.

And now, as she has her sights set on a potential recouping with Essex boy Ron Hall, she’s only gone and pied new bombshell David Salako. 

Love Island fans couldn’t contain their shock as Tanya snubbed both islanders during a beer pong challenge, despite the pair trying to crack on with her.

After taking a sip of her drink, Tanya was instructed to: ‘Snog three boys who you think are the best kissers’.

Up first, Tanya walked over to an unsuspecting Tom and leant in. 

She then made her way to Ron – at which point other Islanders started screaming.

With one final boy to choose – and presumably either Shaq or David in line for the kiss – Tanya instead went for Kai.

Love Island continues Friday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
