Love Island new Islanders

On Monday 15th July, just two weeks before the final, Love Island bosses put THREE brand new Islanders into the villa, in the form of 20-year-old Harley Brash, 28-year-old India Reynolds and 24-year-old Greg O'Shea.

Harley Brash

Harley, who is an Estate Agent from Newcastle, has her eye on both Ovie Soko, and newly single Michael.

She said, "I think Ovie is absolutely beautiful, he is stunning so he is basically my perfect man. I also think Anton comes across really funny so I’d be open to getting to know him. I really fancy Michael but I think he is a bit misunderstood. He’s lovely to look at though, I could definitely just look at him."

The 20-year-old is no stranger to the world of Love Island. As well as knowing of Amber Gill, she's also best friends with 2018 Islander Ellie Brown, calling her a 'sister'. She's also good friends with Adam Collard, and was even romantically linked with him when the pair went out for dinner in London earlier this year.

India Reynolds

28.year-old model India also has her eye on both Ovie and Michael. She said, "Ovie! And Michael is good looking."

After being single for over a year, India is ready to find love. She added, "I want to have a good time and I don’t like falling out with people so hopefully I can be friends with the girls and gorgeous Ovie will still be single for me.

Greg O'Shea

Greg is a professional rugby player from Limerick!

Greg reckons he'll get on well with Irish beauty Maura Higgins, saying, "I’d say me and Maura will hit it off straight away, being two Irish people and she’s hilarious. She’s very naturally funny and she’s gorgeous as well so you never know."

It sounds like Greg is as loyal as they come, admitting he's a 'one girl kind of guy'. He told producers, "I’ve always been a one girl kind of guy… If I see a girl I tend to fall for her hard. Hopefully that can happen again. After my last relationship I lost my faith in love so hopefully going into the villa can get my belief in love back.

Who did Curtis pick on Love Island?

Despite admitting he would like to get to know both Maura Higgins and Francesca Allen, on Monday (15th) night's show, ballroom dancer confessed his feelings for Maura, in turn putting Francesca in the friend-zone.

Did Michael leave with Joanna?

Nope! After Joanna Chimonides was dumped from the villa in a shock twist, many viewers expected Michael Griffiths to leave with his girl. However, admitting he thinks the time apart will do them wonders, the fireman decided to remain in the villa.

Joanna didn't take kindly to this! She fumed, "If you found what you want then you better leave mate. But you clearly aren't so you're a f---ing snake."

Speaking after her exit, Joanna said, "Part of me expected Michael to leave with me, however I don’t want to be in control of someone’s life journey and if he wants to continue in the villa, to get to know someone else or see where things go, I’ve got respect for that. It is a bit disappointing but I’d never hold that against him."

Who did Amber couple up with on Love Island?

On Thursday 11th July, Amber Gill chose to couple up with basketball player Ovie Soko. After getting her heart broken by Michael Griffiths, Amber coupled with Ovie 'as friends', but fans of the show are shipping their romance, with many wanting the pair to WIN the show!

However, after new boy Greg O'Shea entered the villa, Amber had a smile put back on her face following her heartbreak over Michael. During the recoupling on Friday 19th July, Amber chose to couple up with Greg, instead of old-flame Michael.

Who has recoupled on Love Island?

With just a few weeks to go until the Love Island final, the most recent recoupling on Friday 19th July was certainly a dramatic one!

Has Amy Hart quit Love Island?

On Tuesday 9th July, Amy Hart made the tough decision to leave the Love Island villa, after ending her romance with ballroom dancer Curtis Pritchard.

Speaking to Curtis about her decision, she said, “I came in here and I thought I was going to meet some nice people and I’d probably date one of them and they’d be alright and then I met you and you completely turned my whole world around… We made each other happy… I want us to be best, best friends but we both need to move on and we both need to find someone that is going to make us as happy as we make them.

"Realistically for me, I’m not going to be ready in the next three weeks to meet someone else. Realistically for you, you will not be happy all the time here because you’ll always put me first because you’re such a good person. That’s why I love you so much and that’s why I want you to be happy. You are not going to be happy whilst I’m still here. So, I’m leaving today but it’s a positive thing because I’m going to go and start the rest of my life today… I’m going to let you go and you pursue whoever it is you want to pursue and hope that you find whatever you are looking for. Once this is all done we will have the best friendship you have ever seen in your life.

Speaking in the Beach Hut, Amy added, “I have been on such a huge journey… I did not imagine that first night I would meet this boy [Curtis] that would change my life and change my mindset. I want him to be happy and I want him to meet someone else so I’m leaving here today not holding any grudges against anyone, not against Curtis, not against Maura, no one. I never thought I would fall in love, I never thought someone would make me feel so special that I would fall in love with them and I did and it makes me realise that that will happen for me again, just not in here.”

Who is Belle's dad from Love Island?

During her cheese making date with Anton Danyluk on Monday 8th July, Belle confessed her dad is a famous actor!

Belle's dad is Tamer Hassan, who featured in season six of HBO drama Games of Thrones. He played the role of Khal Forzo, a Dothraki soldier who would not accept that Daenerys Targeryen would be his new leader. In an attempt to make him respect her, Daenerys killed the khals and bloodriders by burning them to death.

Speaking of her dad's role, Belle said, "My dad is an actor, Tamer Hassan. He’s been in The Football Factory, The Business, Game of Thrones – he is my link to the famous world."

Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague

After admitting he's falling in love with Molly-Mae Hague, boxer Tommy Fury melted the hearts of the nation when he asked the model to be his girlfriend, with the help of his BFF Curtis Pritchard.

Using Molly-Mae's teddy Ellie-Belly in the set-up, Tommy said, "On a serious note, you know how much you mean to me and you're the only girl for me. I only want to be with you. Therefore, I was wondering if you wanted to be my girlfriend?"

Are Tommy and Molly-Mae official?

As if this wasn't cute enough, Molly-Mae and Tommy then dropped the 'L' word as they were hugging in bed!

And even better, the US version of the show can be viewed by UK super-fans for free on or if they have a digital subscription to CBS All Access or YouTube TV

What happened between Michael and Amber?

Despite showing his affections for Geordie girl Amber Gill, fire-fighter Michael Griffiths had his head turned when new girl Joanna Chimonides entered the villa during Casa Amor week.

After getting to know Joanna and realising he wasn't 'being himself' around Amber, Michael chose to recouple with Joanna during the dramatic recoupling, leaving poor old Amber single as she stayed loyal.

Casa Amor

ITV finally confirmed that Casa Amor would be back for the 2019 series! Unlike past years, the GIRLS headed over to the second villa, leaving the boys in the current one.

On Thursday 27th June, ITV revealed 12 brand new Islanders, six boys and six girls, would be entering the two villas on Friday 28th June in an attempt to turn some heads, and they certainly succeeded!

Love Island footballer

We now have a professional footballer in the Love Island villa! Meet Dennon Lewis, one of the brand new Islanders who set to enter Casa Amor.

Dennon, 22, has just signed for Wealdstone F.C, but he began his football career at Premier League side Watford's academy, signing a three-year professional contract when he was just 18-years-old.

Marvin Brooks Love Island footballer

As well as Dennon, 2019 Islander Marvin Brooks is also a semi-professional footballer. Not only is he Harry Redknapp's personal trainer, but Marvin has also played for Poole Town FC.

Who did Danny pick on Love Island?

Despite telling Yewande he wasn't interested in getting to know anybody else, Danny's head certainly turned when model Arabella Chi walked into the villa. In one of the most tense recouplings of the 2019 series so far, Danny chose to couple up with Arabella, sending poor old Yewande home.

What did Tom say on Love Island?

After going in for a kiss and showing Maura his confidence, things seemed to be going VERY well for Tom Walker. Things then got even better when Maura won the task, meaning she was able to take one boy of her choice into The Hideaway, obviously choosing Tom.

However, the Leeds lad quickly put his foot in it, which resulted in Maura telling him to "go f--k yourself."

Whilst Maura was getting ready with the girls, speaking to Danny Williams, Tommy Fury and the rest of the lads, Tom said, "It will be interesting to see if she’s all mouth or not."

Little did he know, Maura had come downstairs to speak with him, and heard the whole thing! AWKWARD! 🙈

Winter Love Island

Of course, this rumour seems to come around every year, but after last year's Love Island: Christmas Reunion, it looks like ITV2 bosses are seriously considering a Winter Love Island, with the show set to follow the exact same format as the summer edition.

According to new reports by The Sun, the winter edition will be filmed in South Africa in December, so we can all get cosy with our hot water bottles on the sofa whilst the Islanders try to find love in the sun.

Who is Arabella Chi's ex-boyfriend?

Supermodel Arabella Chi entered the Love Island villa as a bombshell on Thursday 20th June, and her ex-boyfriend, former Islander Charlie Frederick was quick to have his say about the stunning 28-year-old.

Charlie, who also used to date Lucie Donlan, took to his Instagram Story to reveal he thought he was still DATING Arabella.

Taking to his Instagram Story, Charlie wrote, 'Wow Love Island you wanna have my f---ing life any more?!!! Both my exes in the villa f---ing madness.' [sic]

He then added, 'Right so this is all an absolute madness for me, finding out that a person I'm seeing/have a lot of feelings for, on a serious level has just strolled into the villa completely disregarding my feelings and our relationship or what we had, I feel like I have to air these screen shots because I feel like I've been completely mugged off.

'I'm truly upset that Arabella has lied to me about what she was doing and claiming she had a campaign but instead actioning going into Love Island.' [sic]

Women's Aid and Love Island

Domestic abuse charity Women's Aid expressed their concern about Joe Garratt's 'controlling' behaviour towards Lucie Donlan, after he told her who she should be friends with.

Adina Claire of Women's Aid said, "Controlling behaviour is never acceptable. With Love Island viewers complaining about Joe's possessive behaviour towards Lucie, more people are becoming aware of this and want to challenge it.

"Abusive relationships often star off with subtle signs of control."

Does Tom Walker have a secret girlfriend?

Following Tom Walker's entrance into the villa, eagle-eyed fans stalked his Instagram page, where they found a number of cosy photos with a girl called Chloe Rayner, who he is said to have dated for seven years!

Although the pair may have split up since, Chloe still features heavily on his feed!

Why did Sherif Lanre get removed from the Love Island villa?

On Tuesday 11th June, ITV released a statement confirming Islander Sherif Lanre had left the villa after breaking the rules.

A Love Island spokesperson said, “After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa.”

Sherif also issued a statement and said, “In a case of poor judgement, I broke the villa rules and as a result agreed with the producers that it was best for me to leave the villa. I regret that I didn’t conduct myself in the right way and, as a 20 year old guy, it’s something I know I will take on board and learn from. I really enjoyed my time in the villa and look forward to catching up with everyone on the outside."

Sherif has now spoken about his removal in an interview with The Sun. Sherif revealed he was axed from the show for accidentally kicking fellow Islander Molly-Mae Hague in the groin, before calling it a 'c--- punt'.

Sherif told the publication, “I did kick Molly-Mae in the groin area but it was an accident and she 100 per cent was not injured afterwards. She flinched and bent over to protect herself. Then she stood up and seemed fine and we started laughing about it.

“I turned to Tommy Fury and said, ‘That was a c--- punt."

Why is Love Island not on TV on a Saturday?

Despite sitting down six nights of the week, Love Island doesn't air on a Saturday night, leaving viewers gutted. BUT NOW, in news that has left us shocked to core, 2017 winner Kem Cetinay has revealed the reason why.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning, Kem revealed the Islanders actually get a DAY OFF from filming, where they can leave the villa so the cleaners can go in!

Kem said, "They give you one day off. You get one day off per week. What happens is, it gives them a day to clean the villa, and you take your mics off, and normally we go to the beach."

As Holly and Phillip appeared shocked, Kem added, "So what happens is, when you take your mic off, you are not allowed to talk about anything to do with the show, you have to talk about home life.

"You are being watched by the producers, because they don't want you to talk about what is going on. They are quite careful about what you talk about, because they want to keep it so everyone at home can see it."

Let's hope bosses over at ITV get some ideas.
