Babes, this is not a drill. We are 99.9 per cent certain that our current Love Island loves are about to be thrown into Casa Amor chaos.

Not only are we approaching the halfway mark for Love Island 2024 (which, historically, is when Casa commences), but this year's special guest music star (this year, it's the legendary, Eve) just sauntered into the villa for a one-off performance – another telltale sign that Casa is on the horizon.

As Love Island experts (if we do say so ourselves), here are our predictions for what chaos will inevitably go down in Casa...

Queen, we're glad you asked, because we're feeling Mystic Meg levels of clairvoyant right now and we just need to expel our predictions...

  • Ciaran will meet another Welsh beauty in Casa Amor and be forced to choose between her and Nicole

  • Grace will realise she can do better than Joey Essex

  • Ayo and Mimi and Wil and Uma will remain loyal af

  • Jess will have OPTIONS in Casa Amor

  • Harriett will meet a MAN giving straight line vibes

  • Things will go sour for Sean and Matilda and they will both recouple

  • One poor Casa Amor bombshell will receive a total of 23 seconds of airtime

We're going to stop predicting things now as we're starting to spoil it for ourselves.

Sadly, we can't officially confirm any of the above, but here's what we can confirm: this year's Casa Amor will deliver. Doesn't it always?

What is Casa Amor?

Casa Amor is the place created for hearts to be broken; or sometimes beautiful, naughty romances to be sparked. It's also the place where drama is a GUARANTEE.

Casa Amor has become a staple on the ITV2 dating show since it was introduced in the third season of Love Island in 2017, with fans always expecting an explosion upon the reunion of all the contestants.

The twist is the ultimate test of loyalty where the boys and girls are separated for a few days in two villas – meeting brand new contestants in the meantime. The recoupling after the twist is often the make-or-break moment for couples as they wait to find out if their partner's head was turned by temptation.

We might not have an exact date for Casa Amor - cause, frankly, we'd book it off work - but it's safe to say...she's coming.

When will Casa Amor start?

We're not too sure yet, but we're predicting things will kick off this weekend.

How long will Casa Amor last?

The twist normally lasts around three to four days, sometimes a week, with a huge recoupling on the last night (that will feature host Maya Jama), where the Islanders have to decide whether they want to stick with their current partner or recouple with a new one.

The ramifications of the show last a lot longer though - remember how Michael Griffiths treated Amber Gill when he recoupled with Joanna Chimonides?

CHALDISH.

And lest we forget that Callum Jones deciding to couple up with Molly Smith after Casa Amor created the living legend that is 'congrats, hun' Shaughna Phillips.

In previous years, Casa Amor has been criticised for "playing with Islanders emotions and feelings". Dani Dyer famously broke down when the girls received a video of the lads' antics in Casa Amor - and Jack Fincham's shock reaction when his ex-girlfriend arrived.

Amy Hart, who appeared on the 2019 series of the show, previously labelled it as "the most horrendous thing ever".

She told Metro, "It’s horrible. That’s what I’d say [about] after care, I would say get rid of Casa Amor. I know it does well for people and it’s good drama but as a person living through Casa Amor? No.

"And you don’t think it’s going to be that bad. When it gets announced, you’re like, Oh that’s sad'. When you’re there, it’s torture, like torturous."

Bring. It. On.
