Two new islanders have already sent shockwaves through the villa – and they haven’t even entered yet.
Scott received a text and started to scream, which created both excitement and trepidation amongst the islanders. Scott revealed that the boys were to host a welcome party for a new girl coming into the Love Island villa.
When it became clear that Scott was excited at the prospect of new people entering the villa, Zara said: “Yeah, Scott’s reaction was brilliant wasn’t it? Great, wonderful, fantastic. I knew it. My gut feeling is always right and I know she’s going to be Scott’s type. I just know. And it’s done me in, I’m literally fuming. He’s a lovely guy and I believe him, but sometimes things change.”
Scott said: “If a girl comes in and she’s absolutely stunning and my type to a tee, then that puts me in a position where I feel like I’m holding back from making the right decision for me. I’m in a position of power. I can probably go out there, have my pick and then come back to a safe situation.”
But the boys’ delight was soon to turn to shock when another text came in telling the girls that a new boy would also be entering the Love Island. Tom was clearly devastated: “I’m scared, nervous and freaking out a little bit. I’m shaking.”
Sophie confessed to Javi and Scott that she was having reservations about Tom: “It’s early days. I feel like, I don’t know if Tom might be coming on a bit too strong. Part of me feels like ‘argh!’ and I’m being swept away. I don’t want him to change, because he’s lovely. But I maybe want to slow down a bit because you never know what’s round the corner. I’m looking out for myself a little bit. Tom’s already talking about coming up to Newcastle and how it’s going to be when we leave. For me, it’s a bit full on. I should stop it now before I commit myself verbally.”
Excited at the prospect of meeting a new love interest, Olivia said: “The guys were going mental over their new girl and now we’re hosting a party for a new guy. I feel like it’s going to kick off again. I could be swayed; I haven’t had that spark yet.”
As the champagne corks fly, will any of the islanders have their heads turned?
