The second week of Love Island has seen relationships hot up while the first major controversy has hit the villa.
The well documented exit of Sherif Lanre dominated the headlines but was pretty much glossed over during the show, as Anna Vakili was left as a singleton with a recoupling just days away.
Curtis Pritchard and Amy Hart are going from strength to strength and were the first couple selected by the islanders to spend some intimate time in the hideaway.
Hot tub and Champagne followed before they disappeared under the sheets to get to know each other a little more carnally.
While full-on nookie may not have been achieved, the pair declared that each other were the ones that they want and heads will not be turned, no matter who walks through the door.
Let’s hope that this is true as two new girls are arriving to test the resolve of the boys in the villa.
Joe Garratt and Lucie Donlan are the other couple that are showing the most solidarity in the show and their togetherness was rewarded with a special date that involved a paddle board and a secluded cove.
Pledges to be with each other for the rest of the process were given, though there is some worry for the future in the preview of tonight’s episode, with Lucie in tears and Joe looking apologetic – what have you done, Joe?
Meanwhile Michael Griffiths thought it was time to take his fledgling romance with Amber Gill to the next base and get a sneaky snog out of her.
After taking her to a quiet spot in the villa, he made his move only to be pied off by Amber, who cited bad breath for not wanting to lock lips.

Some soul searching was the order of the day as Michael tried to live down his own embarrassment of trying it on, only to be rebuffed.
Round two was a far more successful affair though and after Michael and Amber went for a lie down on one of the outdoor beds, they soon got down to some tonsil tennis.
Molly-Mae Hague continues to be a slight enigma for Tommy Fury, who declared his hand only to find that he might not have the ‘deep and meaningful’ side that, say, Danny Williams has.
Tommy regrouped and brought his ‘deep’ game to the table and it might be enough to start sparking some buds of romance despite the shadow of Danny hanging over him.
Talking of Danny, who admitted to Yewande Biala that he felt a connecton.
Unfortunately, who till has one eye on Molly-Mae, so there is going to be someone coming into the recoupling feeling nervous and disappointed.
*Love Island airs all week at 9pm on ITV2.
