“It is what it is” doesn’t really cut it after the shock results of Tuesday’s recoupling left Amber single and Love Island fans reeling.
Michael sent viewers of the ITV2 reality show into a spin by choosing to recouple with newcomer Joanna after the pair shared a kiss in the villa earlier in the episode. Amber had chosen to stick with Michael and was left shocked and single after returning from Casa Amor.
Friends who are running Amber Rose Gill’s Twitter account didn’t hold back either.
A tweet from @AmberRoseGill posted after the dramatic recoupling was aired said: “Wouldn’t trust Michael the firefighter to save me from a burning building... might change his mind halfway through, say I’m too young, and leave me there.”
The tweet soon went viral.
Earlier, the same friend tweeted: “As one of Amber’s friends, that was hard for me to watch. It’s not nice to see your friend in pain and biting their tongue not knowing what to say. But it looks like tomorrow Amber and Anna rip him a new arsehole, so it’s all good.”
As Caroline Flack strutted into the villa, Jordan also became single as he chose to stay loyal to Anna, who returned to the villa recoupled with Ovie.
Elsewhere Danny coupled up with Jourdan, who had fended off Curtis’s affections. This meant Curtis recoupled with “half-girlfriend” Amy.
But trouble could be brewing for the pair after Curtis revealed doubts about his relationship with Amy to the rest of the group.
Predictably Anton coupled up with Belle and his previous “friend couple” partner Lucie chose George after being split between him and Stevie, who she shared a kiss with on Monday.
After being undecided between Marvin and Dennon, Maura eventually chose to recouple with Marvin.
The only couple who managed to swerve any head-turning during the Casa Amor twist were Tommy and Molly-Mae who both chose to stick with each other.
The new Love Island couples are:
- Danny and Jourdan
- Anton and Belle
- Curtin and Amy
- Tommy and Molly-Mae
- Lucie and George
- Maura and Marvin
- Anna and Ovie
- Michael and Joanna
This means Amber and Jordan are now single, while Maria, Nabila, Lavena, Stevie, Dan and Dennon were dumped from the Island.
Love Island airs nightly at 9pm on ITV2.
