recoupling

Love Island's Francesca Allen has given us an inside look into the reunion of Joanna Chimonides and Michael Griffiths following their Aftersun appearance, and it's spicy enough,

A video emerged of the pair getting cosy in the green room, despite the awkwardness between the former couple and Caroline Flack.

Francesca was obviously asked whether they're getting back together, because everyone thinks that they will, and she said;

"Possibly, they seem to be getting along fine. I wasn't there for too long after because I was shattered."

She added; "They were speaking, everyone was being civil and nice. So we'll see what happens!"

Well, that's dull. We wanted WWE drama for Michael's sins.

Francesca also tried to defend Michael, who she was coupled up with as friends at the end of her time in the villa, saying:

"Michael's great, he's just made a few mistakes I think. He's actually a really good person. I got along with him really well."

Michael recoupled with Joanna following Casa Amor, as I'm sure we all remember, and left Amber to walk alone into the villa.

The gaslighting firefighter then insisted that he had no interest in Amber anymore. He pied her TWICE in an embarrassing fashion, treating her like dirt in the process.

Joanna was raging after she was dumped from the island alone, without Michael leaving with her.

The model branded him a 'snake', with most of us agreeing that the term was well deserved.

Michael then tried to crack on with Amber again after Irish charmer Greg brought her on a date, with Michael lying at every turn about his feelings.

Will Joanna give him another chance? She'd be some fool to let him slither his way back in, but we suspect she will.

A former ITV2 employee has claimed that Love Island bosses "fix the show based on who they want to win", according to The Sun.

An anonymous former worker took part in a Reddit Q&A, and claimed to be a producer from 2018's show. Moderators for the site allegedly confirmed their identity.

The employee referred to the popular programme as "constructed reality at its finest" in the resurfaced chat. Show bosses really do pull all the strings, huh…

The insider curtly replied; "Yeah, absolutely" when asked if showrunners "manipulate the show based on who they want to win".

Their "favourite couples" are benefitted with shock twists and orchestrated dumpings, according to the source;

"They’re deciding who makes best TV, who is the most frustrating to work with and such things. It’s not just one person saying 'oh no I like them'."

Fans only last week accused the show of fixing a dumping after Joanna was dumped from the island, meaning that Michael Griffiths could try again with ex-flame Amber Gill.

The source said that a lot of the time Islanders are asked to have certain conversations "to give the viewer a better experience".

When asked about last year's contestants, the ex-ITV2 employee said Georgia Steel "was so annoying and demanding of attention from everyone including producers".

The insider added that Laura Anderson wouldn't have reached the final if viewers witnessed how "annoying" she was, and that Dr Alex George was "just sh*t":

"He was given everything and offered nothing".

The one former contestant who was praised was Megan Barton-Hanson, with the source saying that her "lovely, vulnerable side that didn't get shown"; 

"She was really likeable. She was so insecure and vulnerable and was genuinely sweet."

A rep for Love Island replied to The Sun's digging, saying:

"As anyone who watches the show regularly would know, Love Island is a combination of reality and produced elements that are reflective of what's happening in the villa, and is a fair and accurate representation of villa life.

"We have always been completely transparent about this and the way the show is produced. This is often acknowledged in the voice over by Iain Stirling," they added.

"The opinions they have and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves," ITV bosses continued.

"As we have said since series one, Love Island is a combination of reality and produced elements."

Now that was some seriously scalding hot tea, we wonder if ITV know which former employee is spilling their secrets?

Amber Gill looks on her way to be shoved back into villa villain Michael's arms tonight, by none other than the King: Ovie Soko.

Well, we're about to snatch that crown right off his head for encouraging her to back to a toxic ex who is CLEARLY manipulating her to stay on the show for as long as he can. 

In a shocking first look at tonight's Love Island, Ovie sits Amber down for a 'chinwag' (lol Curtis) about the upcoming recoupling.

We all know that Gorgeous Greg from Limerick is the correct choice, and in a world of Michael's: Always pick Greg. Trust us.

We have to remember, however, that Amber is only 21-years-old, and is most likely going to return to the bad boy that broke her heart before she learns some valuable lessons.

The girls must decide tonight who they want to recouple with, and Amber has a decision to make. Manipulative Michael, or Gorgeous Greg? My Lord, it's so difficult to choose. So difficult. *Sighs*

Audiences are positive that the firefighter is choosing Amber so he can remain in the villa after refusing to leave with Joanna, for no reason at all. Hello, he wants the £50k.

Charming Irish rugby player and solicitor Greg O'Shea was sent in to put a smile back on Amber's face after Michael stomped all over her heart by dumping her for Joanna, and the pair get on super well.

Fans are devastated to see that Ovie is Team Michael, seeing as Ovie is one of Amber's closest friends and confidantes. 

He tells her: "Greg's come in and he's been absolutely wonderful but ok, if you pick Greg you're playing it safe. Going back with Michael, you heart could get shattered again but you like him more than Greg. That's the reality."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Greg O’Shea (@gregoshea) on

Amber comes face to face with Michael and Greg in tonight's recoupling, with the two boys as the final pair standing. Does this mean that whoever she doesn't choose will be dumped from the villa?

Well, there are an even number of girls and boys in the villa, so probably not. When news of the recoupling broke in the villa, Greg, grinned at her and told her: "You have a decision to make here."

Smiling back, Amber had a twinkle in her eye as she proclaimed: "F*ck." We hope that translates to: "F*ck, I can't wait to leave Michael standing there on his own like a total mug, same as he did to me."

Tonight is set to be one of the biggest nights in Love Island history, with Geordie gal Amber Gill realising she has a major decision to make. 

Will she go with her ex-flame and current villa villain, Michael Griffiths, or new charming Limerick Lad, Greg O'Shea? 

We know what the obviously correct choice is, but last night's clip may have given away a major spoiler about what will go down tonight.

The firefighter who is now an enemy of the state after dumping Amber brutally after Casa Amor for Joanna Chimondies, and treating her like dirt afterwards, only to confess as soon as Joanna gets axed that he still has feelings for Amber.

Hmmm, how convenient? We're guessing he'd do absolutely anything to remain in the show.

The manipulative 27-year-old isn't fooling anyone, especially with his lies last night about having "found what I've been looking for" comment referring to Amber.

As soon as Belle told him that Joanna wouldn't be waiting around on the outside for him, he does a 180 and heads straight over to Amber, interrupting her chat with new boy Greg.

Amid all this chaos, the islanders got a text revealing that the next recoupling was looming, and it's the girls' chance to pick the boys this time.

Viewers spotted in the teaser for tonight's episode that Amber is positioned at the fire pit announcing her choice, but Greg and Michael were the last men standing.

Yes Shannon, yes they did spoil it. The other boys were therefore already picked by the other girls, and fans are now attempting to work out who Amber will choose.

The show gave a little too much away, making it too obvious which girls were paired with which boys. 

One Twitter user wrote:

“Hate how the producers fix it so that the one torn between two people just happens to choose last and it just happens that none of the other girls have picked either of those two boys even though there's a few single girls in there?”

It's CLEARLY Michael's time to leave the island, seeing as he already should have walked out with Joanna after choosing her over Amber. He made his bed, and didn't lie in it…Rude.

Plus Irish rugby player Greg O'Shea is an absolute gentleman who could treat a lady right, and has been nothing but respectful to Amber since he met her at the Hideaway.

Maura agrees with the public's choice of Greg, after seeing how emotionally abusive Michael was to Amber over the last few weeks. We all know how dirtbag ex-boyfriends crawl their way back in, though…

An explosive showdown is set to air on our screens tonight, with a recoupling set to rock the entire Love Island villa.

The Spanish house was split in two as the boys stayed put but the girls were sent to Casa Amor, and sparks flew between certain originals and newbies.

Things look like they'll come to a head tonight, with Caroline Flack entering the villa to host a recoupling with more drama than ever.

In a teaser clip for tonight, Curtis reveals that the scales have tipped, and he currently wants to recouple with new girl Jourdan rather than 'half-girlfriend' Amy.

Michael has also sent fans into an absolute rage by kissing new girl Joanna in front of everyone, while Amber and Amy stay fiercely loyal in Casa Amor.

All the Islanders are clearly shook by the two boys getting their heads turned, and Michael calling Amber 'childish' and Curtis calling Amy 'bitchy.'

After narrator Iain Stirling announces dramatically that it's decision time in the teaser clip, Curtis tells Jourdan; "Right of this second I'd choose you."

A shocked Jourdan asks : "Are you sure?" Michael spends his time grafting Joanna and kissing her on a sofa, saying, "If I went to kiss you right now would you stop me?" SNAKE.

She replies, grinning: "Probably not." But…but Amber?! We can't believe that Michael has essentially handed Tommy and Molly-Mae (#TollyMae) the £50,000 cash prize.

Tune in tonight at 9pm to see what chaos goes down at the recoupling.

After THAT episode last night, Love Island is hotting up. 

Between the irritating Danny-Yewande-Arabella love triangle and then Tom monumentally putting his foot in it with Maura, there was a lot going on. 

And then the news came that tonight, Monday, there will be a surprise recoupling meaning that someone will be booted out of the villa. 

Our nerves. 

The clip showed the Islanders getting a message which said, ''Islanders, tonight there will be a recoupling. The boys will choose and the girl not picked to be in a couple will be dumped from the Island. #ByeFelicia #GirlCrushed."

We know that the obvious coupes are safe – resident motivational speaker Curtis and Amy, Amber and Michael, Anna and Jordan, Molly-Mae and Tommy, etc.

But who will Danny go for?

He's been coupled up with Yewande but since model Arabella arrived, he's been keeping his options open. 

Danny told cameras in the beach hut, ''I've got to make a decision. They both want me to couple up with them but I'll be disappointing one.''

He continued, ''I've got to pick one girl and whoever I don't could be leaving.''

Well done Danny, that's kinda how it all works.

Also, Tom and Maura looked set to be a solid couple after they were heading to the Hideaway.

That is, until Tom ut his foot in it and Maura heard him tell the lads, ''Let's see if she's all mouth.''

Vue Maura telling him to go f*ck himself – as she should.

We can't wait to see the drama unfold – roll on 9pm.
