LOVE ISLAND TONIGHT: FRIDAY 20 JANUARY 2023
ISLANDERS RECEIVE A TEXT ABOUT TONIGHT'S RECOUPLING
In the morning the Islanders receive a text about an impending recoupling set to take place later that evening. They learn that it will be the girls who will be choosing who to couple up with and that the boy not picked will be dumped from the Island immediately.
Reacting to the news, Will, who isn’t in a couple, says: “I’m not even being funny I’m sh*tting it”. Shaq, who isn’t sure who Tanya will pick, replies: “My heart is racing.” With one of the boys vulnerable they turn their attention to grafting.
THE RESULTS OF THE FIRE PIT SHOCK THE VILLA
It’s time for the Islanders to gather around the fire pit for the results of the recoupling. Are the dynamics about to drastically change? With Tanyel having connections with both Kai and Ron, which boy will she pick?
Torn between Shaq and David, who will Tanya choose to couple up with? Who will new bombshell Zara choose having set her sights on both Ron and Tom?
The last girl to pick stands to make her decision, which boy will she choose to couple up with and who will be leaving the villa immediately?
HARIS AND SHAQ TALK IT OUT
Haris and Shaq catch up after last night’s beer-pong fallout. Speaking to Shaq in the garden, Haris says: “The only thing that got to me is to call me a ‘sh*t stirrer’, that’s a big thing.”
Shaq explains to Haris how he’s feeling about the situation and whether he’s happy to put it to bed. Will the boys reach an understanding?
ZARA PULLS RON FOR A CHAT
Keen to know where Ron’s head is at, Zara pulls him aside and says: “Are you still open to getting to know me?” With Zara, Tanyel and Lana all seemingly vying for his affection, which girl is Ron most interested in? Will he cool things off with Zara or keep all of his options open?
Later that evening Ron is honest about which of the girls he wants to move forward with. And he’s got romance on his mind, telling one of the girls: “I want to focus all my energy. You’re the whole picture.” But which girl is it and are the feelings mutual?
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
