LOVE ISLAND TONIGHT: MONDAY 20 FEBRUARY 2023
ONE LUCKY COUPLE HEADS TO THE HIDEAWAY
After assisting Will with his romantic gesture for Jessie the Villa receives a text which reads: “Islanders, The Hideaway Retreat is open tonight! Please choose a lucky couple to spend a romantic night together #JustTheTwoOfUs #TimeToPlay.”
Unanimous in their decision the Islanders instantly agree on which couple it should be. Excitement starts to build amongst the couple's fellow Islanders as one of the girls predicts: “I think the L bomb might be dropped.”
The boy chosen to leave the Villa for the evening admits: “I’m almost nervous because I’ve not had this one-on-one time with her.” Which couple are heading to the Hideaway and will sparks fly as they leave the Villa?
OLIVIA PULLS KAI FOR A CHAT
Olivia pulls Kai for a chat at the fire pit to ask for clarity after the re-coupling speeches. Olivia says: “I wanted to pull you for a chat because when I went to Casa things were good, things were really good and I just want to know what made you have these feelings. Thinking I’m not genuine, that I’m fake, I just want to know where that’s come from.”
Kai says: “I feel like you’re happy with Max, I’m happy with Sanam.” Olivia says: “But that’s not the point I’m getting at, you’ve said these things and I was really hurt at the fire pit when you called me fake. That’s not the person I thought I knew, they’re very strong things to say.”
Olivia adds: “I do expect an apology for those comments.” Kai says: “I’m not apologising for anything… that’s how I felt at the time.” As the conversation continues, will Olivia and Kai be able to come to a resolve?
TANYA PAYS SHAQ A SURPRISE VISIT
As the Islanders all settle in bed it seems Tanya isn’t quite ready to sleep. Sharing a bed with Martin she gets up during the night and makes her way downstairs.
Tom and Samie spot her and say: “Where is she going?” As Shaq sleeps alone downstairs Tanya pays him an unexpected visit as she gently taps him on the shoulder to get his attention. But what’s behind this middle of the night rendezvous?
MARTIN MAKES TANYA BREAKFAST
The following morning Martin makes Tanya breakfast as he is keen to know where her head is at. Martin asks: “How are you feeling today, I know yesterday wasn’t the best day for you, how do you feel? I want genuine how you feel answers.”
Tanya replies: “Today I feel good.” Martin says: “You feel good, that's good, it’s a new day, a new start.” Tanya tells him: “I think I just have a lot to think about.” Where does this leave Martin?
KAI AND SANAM GO ON A DATE
The next day Kai receives a text inviting him and Sanam on their first date. Learning it will be water-based, the text reads: “Kai and Sanam, It’s time for your first date. Please get ready to leave The Villa #Watersports #KayakForTwo
As Sanam gets ready she says: “I’m excited but nervous.”
Arriving to find a kayak for two, they take to the water and Kai says: “Since you’ve come in here you’ve completely changed my perspective. It’s just effortless, with you I’m just really happy. I hope it continues because you’re the full package.”
Sanam says: ‘“I literally love our chats so much, we have so much to talk about.”
THE VILLA HOSTS A SPECIAL VIP PERFORMANCE
Later that day, Will receives a text message announcing they are to welcome a special guest to the Villa for a performance and party. Will reads out: “Islanders it’s time to get glam because tonight the Villa will host a special VIP performer! #ThisIsReal #OutOut.”
The Islanders can’t contain their excitement as they try and guess who will be performing for them in the Villa this evening. Tom guesses correctly as he says: “It’s Jax Jones!”
Later that evening Jax Jones puts on an unforgettable set as the Islanders dance into the night. And Jax Jones has another surprise in store for the Villa as he brings out vocalist Calum Scott for a live performance of their new single Whistle. But that isn’t where the night ends.
After the performance is finished, one Islander takes to the stage for an unexpected announcement. Who has something they need to get off of their chest?
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
