A date for Dami and Indiyah


After finally becoming an official couple, Dami and Indiyah were spoiled by the on their first date island of love gods.

The two enjoyed intimate drinks together and on their date Indiyah told Dami: “People have come and gone at the villa but we were both here the whole time so sometimes it’s like it’s right in front of you.”


When asked if she thinks her head could be turned, Indiyah told Dami that she said that while it’s still early days, she’s happy with how things are progressing with the two.

She said: “I’m getting to know you and I’m really happy. You make me laugh, you make me smile.”


Dami asked: “Why is it so simple?”

Indiyah replied, “Do you think it all fits together perfectly?”


Dami said: “Yes, but too perfect to be honest, it just feels too perfect.”

A heart to heart for Jacques and Paige


Before the reunion, Paige and Jacques had hit it off like a house on fire – however, Paige now shares a bed with Jay and Jacques with Danica.

In a conversation that couldn’t wait until morning, Jacques pulled Paige to the stairwell to talk while the rest of the islanders slept.

After initially trying to play it cool, he finally admitted that it bothered him to see her with Jay, especially seeing her sharing a bed with him.

He said: “Tonight it made me mad as fuck, it literally made me mad and I didn’t like it at all.”


Paige told Jacques that he had “nothing to worry about,” after which he said he trusts her completely and that he’s “never felt like this in my life.”

So who likes who?


It can be difficult to keep up with who is actually interested in each other in the villa, so here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know.

After the last reconnection, our official couples are:

  • Charlie and Ekin Su
  • jay and paige
  • Jacques and Danica
  • Damie and Indiah
  • Andrew and Tasha
  • Davide and Antigoni
  • Luca and Gemma

Jay has had his eye on Paige ever since he stole her from Jacques during the reunion, but from the looks of it her focus seems to be solely on her former bed pal.

After the reunion, Andrew and Tasha seem to be a little on their feet, and Tasha feels betrayed by the boys at the mansion for daring to suggest that she might be open to meeting the familiar boy (although Jay is exactly that does The same was given to Ekin-Su with a handshake, but that’s neither here nor there).


Poor Danica seems to have disappeared from the show altogether after Davide chose Antigoni in the recoupling despite kissing her.

Dami and Indiyah have gone from strength to strength and are definitely the strongest couple in the villa right now – but that’s about it island of love finally and these things can change in the blink of an eye.
