LOVE ISLAND TONIGHT: SUNDAY 26 FEBRUARY 2023

CLAUDIA AND CASEY REFLECT ON THE RECOUPLING

In light of the results of the recoupling, Casey and Claudia are no longer a couple after both being picked by new bombshells Rosie and Keanan. Claudia says to Olivia, Samie, Lana and Jessie: “I never thought this would happen to me, I never thought I’d get this attached.”

Later that evening they catch up as Casey says to Claudia: “I find her attractive and I think it would be silly of me not to get to know her a bit more and that’s all it is.” Claudia responds: “I know, but we were in a good place, we really were and now some pretty girl comes in and it’s just like…”


Casey replies: “I would never rub anything in your face, it's literally just me wanting to get to know her a bit more.”



ROSIE DOUBTS CASEY AND CLAUDIA’S COMPATIBILITY

As Rosie gets ready in the dressing room the following morning with Samie, Sanam and Jessie she says: “I feel like the only couple that I think weren’t compatible were Casey and Claudia.”

Samie asks: “Why do you think that?” Rosie replies: “I don’t see the sexual chemistry between them. I feel like he needs somebody who brings out his personality a bit more and I think she maybe needs someone that’s a bit more mature.”



Shortly after, Samie catches up with Claudia and some of the other girls and says: “Rosie turned around and said she didn’t feel like there was sexual chemistry between you two.”

Claudia replies: “Why would she say that?” Claudia decides to speak to Rosie directly and pulls her for a chat.


ISLANDERS TAKE ON THE SAINTS VERSUS SINNERS CHALLENGE

Later, the Villa receives a text with news of a brand new challenge, which will see the girls play against the boys in a Saints versus Sinners game.


As the Islanders make their way out of the Villa, the boys are dressed as naughty devils in red shorts and devil horns, while the girls are dressed as angels with white halos and wings.

In one round, the girls must throw a cupid’s arrow, and the boys a devil’s fork, at a large wheel in a bid to land on the face of the Islander they want to snog the most.

Rosie aims for Casey but lands on Kai. As they share a kiss Sanam looks on and says: “I don’t want to see that.” Claudia aims for Casey. But will she hit the target and get to share a snog with him? And which girl will Casey aim for when it’s his turn to throw?


Tanya says: “I’m going to go for my horny devil Shaq” before landing right on target and therefore getting to give him a cheeky kiss.

Another round sees the angels and devils play a paint-filled version of dodgeball. One Islander from each team wears a set of giant wings in order to protect the rest of their team from being covered in paint soaked sponges thrown by their opponents.

As the challenge draws to a close the Islanders can’t contain their excitement as they throw the rest of the paint sponges at each other.


CASEY TELLS ROSIE HE HAS LOTS TO THINK ABOUT

After the challenge, Rosie and Casey catch up and talk about Rosie’s arrival at the Villa, Casey says: “So much has happened in the space of an evening, you’ve definitely come in and made an impact for sure.”

Rosie replies: “Do you think?” Casey adds: “I think so, well for me you have.” Casey tells her: “It’s given me a lot to think about.” What does this mean for Casey’s coupling with Rosie and his feelings for Claudia?


RON ASKS LANA FOR A PRIVATE CHAT ON THE TERRACE

As night falls over the Villa, Ron pulls Lana for a chat on the terrace as he has something he wants to get off his chest.


As they catch up, Ron says: “I can’t stop thinking about yesterday’s recoupling and about your speech and I thought when you said that you’re falling, we are stronger than ever, I don’t think anyone comes close to us. I’ve never had a relationship or anything like that so for me it’s like a massive thing.”

But what is it that Ron wants to say to Lana?


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