Love Island’s Millie hast taken Liam back after he declared her a ‘potential soulmate’ on Tuesday’s show.
The girls were in the driver’s seat in the latest recoupling ceremony – and after a lot of turmoil the girls made some surprising choice..
Although Liam and Millie were officially a couple, she called time on their romance after chatting to Lillie about what really went down in Casa Amor.
Millie learned that her man had kissed Lillie three times and tried to get cosy with her in bed. As a result, she’s kicked him out of HER bed.
But decided to take him back after a series of grand gestures including a gushing speech in front of ALL the Islanders.
Tyler wanted to keep his options open with both Kaz and Clarisse…and neither are too impressed.
Kaz decided to choose Matt because he was “trustworthy”, and even gave Tyler a little wink as Matt came to sit with her by the fire pit.
Finally, Toby has decided he wants to get back with Chloe following a massive U-turn. First he wanted Abi, then Mary and now Chloe again.
And Chloe could not resist his indecisive charms.
One couple who seem to have found their happy-ever-after is Faye and Teddy, who are back in each other’s arms following their Casa Amor hiccup.
Amy and Hugo remained together, as did Jake and Liberty, while Clarisse chose to stay with Tyler after Kaz dumped.
Other new couples included, Abi and Dale and Mary and Sam.

SPEAKING OF LUCINDA, HERE’S THE AWKWARD MOMENT SHE RAN INTO AARON AFTER HER RELATIONSHIP WITH BE WAS REVEALED
Love Island’s Lucinda Strafford and Aaron Francis endured an awkward reunion on ITV show Lorraine today as she confirmed her new romance with co-star Brad McLlelland.
The dumped pair came face-to-face after being invited on to Lorraine to discuss the hit reality show following Casa Amor‘s dramatic recoupling.
The exes were forced to confirm their relationship status and looked uncomfortable as Aaron took the heat of the question.
Playing the gent, he said he harboured no hard feelings after Lucinda chose to pursue Northumberland labourer Brad, 26, over him on the outside, and insisted Love Island fans couldn’t really blame her.
The events manager said: “We came out, we were only coupled up for three or four days, when you think about it like that, we’re like ‘calm down guys’.”
As Lucinda replied: “Yeah, I met up with Brad. It’s still really early stages at the moment but we’re seeing where things go.
“I did have a really good connection with Brad unfortunately the time got cut short, he was so mature and a gentleman. But it’s early stages and it’s still up in the air at the moment.”
Before entering Love Island Lucinda dated a Brighton & Hove Albion footballer for two years.
The Sun reported how the footie star was furious when she told him about Love Island.
DUMPED ISLANDER LUCINDA INSISTS HER ROMANCE WITH BRAD IS IN ITS EARLY DAYS
LOVE Island’s Lucinda was left red-faced as she insisted her romance with Brad is in its “early days” after they were spotted holding hands on a date.
The fashion mogul originally left the villa in a couple with Aaron but the pair split up a few days following their dumping.
Before then, Lucinda was in a couple with Brad – and it seems they have reignited their romance on a date in Brighton.
When asked about the date by host Laura Whitmore, Lucinda remained coy about where she was with Brad.
She said: “Yeahhh, was it last night? What day is it today, Sunday? Yeah last night. Yeah last night we met up and went out in Brighton. But it’s still early stages. All up in the air in my life.”
Lucinda was snapped staring adoringly at Brad as they walked along Brighton seafront.
The pair beamed with happiness as they laughed and joked together on their night out.
It was Lucinda’s first day out of isolation since returning home with Majorca.
Before being axed from the villa, Lucinda’s romance with Aaron appeared to be heating up.
But Lucinda suggested they’re going to be too busy to make things work back home – despite finding time for Brad.
LAURA WHITMORE CLAIMS TOBY WAS EYEING HER UP IN THE LOVE ISLAND VILLA
LOVE Island host Laura Whitmore has claimed that Toby was eyeing her up in the villa when she entered this week for the recoupling.
The 36-year-old, who is married to the show’s voice over artist Iain Stirling, joked the that 22-year-old couldn’t resist checking her out as he continues to work through the women on the show.
Speaking to Lucinda and Araron on last nights After Sun, she exclaimed: “I thought when I walked in that he was looking at me, actually, for a while.
“I’m like ‘Toby! No!’”
The semi-pro footballer has made quite the name for himself over the last few weeks as he’s fallen for girl after girl and then swiftly moved on.
And in a huge twist last night, it was revealed that Toby is set to do yet ANOTHER U-turn and snub both Mary and Abigail for ex Chloe.
He comforted Abi after she broke down in tears and confessed in the Beach Hut that he wasn’t sure if he’d made the right decision.
He’d previously dumped Kaz to be with Chloe.
But then Chloe took him back during Tuesday’s recoupling ceremony
LOVE ISLAND RUNNER-UP SIANNISE FUDGE SLAMS SHOW FOR ‘PLAYING PEOPLE’S EMOTION’S
LOVE Island’s Siannise Fudge has slammed the show for “playing with people’s emotions” after Teddy Soares “got done dirty” in Casa Amor.
The dreaded sister villa was introduced last week and it certainly tested a number of relationships.
Producers decided to send a postcard into the main villa, which showed the girls what the boys got up to during their “lads holiday”.
Siannise exclusively told The Sun Online: “I thought it was really playing with people’s emotions.”
She added: “Teddy got done dirty there… he stayed out on the day bed.
“But then they’ve obviously made Liam look not bad. I just think that’s a bit poor from the production.”
But it’s all ended well as Teddy won Faye back and she chose to recouple with him on Tuesday’s episode.
LOVE ISLAND FINAL DATE REVEALED – AND IT’S JUST DAYS AWAY
Love Island’s final date has been revealed – and fans don’t have long to wait.
Viewers will find out the king and queen of the villa on Monday 23, leaving just under three weeks of drama to go.
Jake and Liberty have been front runners for the £50,000 prize from early on in the show and their chances will only have been boosted by Liam and Millie’s shock split after Casa Amor.
However, there will no doubt be plenty of twists and turns before viewers vote for their favourite couple.
The most recent Love Island winners were Finn Tapp and Paige Turley, who triumphed in the first-ever winter Love Island.
Before that Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea took the prize in the summer of 2019.
And their victory is a reminder that anything can happen as Irishman Greg was a very late arrival and yet came out on top.
Here’s a look at what happened to the other winners after the show finished.
LOVE ISLAND SEES RECORD RATINGS AS VIEWERS TUNE IN FOR CASA AMOR DRAMA
Love Island is celebrating record ratings as it draws in 200,000 viewers overnight who were desperate to watch the Casa Amor drama.
The popular ITV2 reality show had its highest audience since its launch on Sunday night with an overnight TV audience of 2.3million viewers.
An ITV spokesman said the audience included 1million 16-34s with a 51 per cent share of 16-34 year-olds.
If ITV Hub viewing is included, 2.7million people have so far watched Sunday’s episode.
Viewers saw Chloe find a postcard sent to the main villa from Casa Amor – and it reveals what the boys have been up to away from home.
LOVE ISLAND CONTRACTS SHOW EXACTLY WHAT STRICT RULES THE STARS ARE EXPECTED TO FOLLOW
Love Island 2021 contestants hoping to crack the big time after their stint in the villa will be blocked from going on another TV show for eight months unless ITV say they can.
All islanders from this year’s series signed a lengthy contract prior to jetting out to Majorca which gives strict guidelines on what they can – or rather can’t do – after leaving the show.
The extensive document states that the islander “must not apply, audition for, or appear on any other programme until February 22”.
ITV bigwigs are also given a veto over any commercial deal made to islanders until a month after the show finishes – regardless of how long they were on the programme for.
The contract even extends to the islanders voice, with the document stating the islander “cannot contribute or appear on any podcast without approval”.
The legal document means that ITV effectively has full power to control the contestant’s future by green lighting or refusing deals.
An industry source said: “Islanders will have been able to read what they are signing up for but it’s one of the strictest contracts I’ve ever seen – they have no experience of the industry so I doubt they would have understood the implications.
“Everyone knows as soon as you leave any reality show you have to strike while the iron is hot but ITV’s demands make that really hard.”
HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE TEDDY
Teddy Soares shocked fans when he revealed he was a real life prince.
“I’m going to say something so shocking,” he teased partner Faye Brookes and ousted Islander Lucinda Strafford in a recent episode of Unseen Bits.
He then told them he was a prince of Nigeria’s Delta State.
“You’re a prince of what, sorry?” asked Lucinda Strafford, as Faye added, “Sorry, one more time, just run it past me.”
It’s like a village, it’s within the Delta State village,” he explained.
“So my grandad has obviously passed away so I’m no longer actually prince, I was a prince,”
Faye couldn’t believe it and rushed to the Beach Hut.
“Teddy was once a prince! Are you joking?” she said, “I mean I’ve definitely got to stop with burping now, I might have to just stop and lay off the swearing so much but I think I’ve got this y’know.”
Nigeria’s Delta State sits in the country’s south and is is an oil and agricultural producing state with a population of about 5.6million.
LOVE ISLAND SPOILER SPOTTED AT BEGINNING OF THE EPISODE
Some very observant Love Island viewers picked up a spoiler potentially planted by show bosses at the very start of tonight’s episode to indicate how the recoupling would go.
Everyone knew a dramatic recoupling ceremony was going to happen tonight and was filled with surprises, including, Kaz picking Matt over Tyler.
Show bosses chose to play Krept & Konan’s Don’t Waste My Time in the beginning of the episode.
Many thought it was a reference to Tyler asking if he was ‘wasting my time’ picking Kaz over Clarisse.
Viewers thought it was a clue about what would happen in the recoupling and took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One fan tweeted: “Whoever picked this song for the love island intro, DESERVES A RAISE! I’m cackling.”
While another took it as a premonition: “Not Krept and Konan as the intro song, tonight is gonna be drama-filled.”
And a third wrote: “Music producer understands the assignment with the opening song today.”
LOVE ISLAND VOICE OVER GUY, IAIN STIRLING, WORRIED WHAT TWITTER HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIS NEW SHOW
We’re very familiar with his voice, but we’ve been seeing his face a lot more recently as ads for Iain Stirling’s new TV show pop up during episodes of Love Island.
But he’s worried what Twitter will have to say about the sitcom called, Buffer, and hopes it doesn’t ruin it for him.
“I remember doing an interview with James Acaster, the comedian, and I remember him saying that he’s never looked at the sales figures of his book because he had made it, and he was proud of it,” Iain told Digital Spy.
“At the minute, the thing I did, I’m proud of it, and I think it’s good, and it’s a body of work that will be there long after me. It’s a nice representation of me. “
Iain added: “Once it’s on telly, and Twitter is one click on your iPhone, I don’t know if I’ll have the mental fortitude to stand by that, but I’d like to think I do.”
“It’s genuinely the worst place in the world. It’s insane how awful it is,” he said.
In Buffer, Iain plays a children’s TV presenter who doesn’t like kids very much.
Buffer premieres on ITV on Thursday 5 August at 10pm.
HUGO AND AMY – WILL THEY BE THE ONES TO GO?
There is a rising call from social media to vote Hugo and Amy out.
It comes as the pair, especially Hugo, got very little screen time over the past few episodes.
Fans are not convinced at their therapy and want ‘get Hugo out’ trending on Twitter.
One fan wrote: “Get Hugo out the villa trending but that boy is going nowhere.”
Another chimed in: “Omg how could I forget Hugo and amy . Guys seriously. Let’s get Hugo out their time yeah? Enough is enough.”
And a third wrote: “Hope Hugo goes no point of him being in the villa.”
KAZ’S CHEEKY WINK TO TYLER
While a few of the girls opted to take back their cheating boys (Chloe and Millie), Kaz stood her ground and refused to recouple with Tyler.
She instead chose to stay with Matthew after Tyler came back with another girl, Clarisse, from Casa Amor.
They had heated arguments as Tyler tried to tell Kaz he really liked her, but still wanted to get to know Clarisse.
Kaz wanted all or nothing from him, but it did seem at one point she may in fact choose Tyler.
But she shocked everyone, including Tyler himself, and decided to stay with Matt.
Tyler looked gutted, but Kaz had the last laugh when she shot Tyler a little wink as shse sat besides Matt.
And it did not go unnoticed by fans.
“Kaz said CHECKMATE B**CH,” wrote on fan.
Another added: “Kaz winking at Tyler after recoupling with matt was savagery at its finest.”
And a third wrote: “Nah. Kaz chose violence with that wink! I am still reeling.”
BED HOPPER TOBY SEEN EYEING UP MABLE AND HER DANCERS
Fans were quick to joke that Toby Aromolaran would want to couple up with pop star Mabel after she made a surprise visit to the villa.
The stunning Swedish-English singer, 25, performed to the Islanders at a special party and viewers couldn’t help but rib Toby.
Despite ditching Abi for Mary at Casa Amor, he now thinks his heart lies with his former flame Chloe.
Taking to Twitter, one fan mused: “She’s got style, she’s got sophistication and she’s got security on standby to stop Toby getting within 10ft of her..”
Another said: “Toby would sack off Chloe for Mabel if he could!”
A third wrote: “Toby tomorrow: I really like Abi and I really like Mary. My head is with Chloe, but my heart is with @Mabel.”
FANS ARE RAGING AS MILLIE RECOUPLES WITH LIAM AND THE CASA AMOR CHEAT GETS A SECOND CHANCE
Love Island fans were fuming tonight as Millie Court forgave Liam Reardon after he snogged another girl three times.
It was a good night for the Casa Amor bed-hoppers, with Toby Aromolaran also given a second chance by Chloe Burrows.
Millie recoupled with Liam after changing her mind about binning him – saving the 21-year-old from being sent packing back to Wales.
Earlier she let him kiss her on the cheek and they shared a hug in the wake of a speech he made about her.
It was a remarkable turnaround for the couple, who had looked to be totally finished after Lillie Haynes revealed what went on in Casa Amor.
Millie told the group during the recoupling: “The speech tonight – I would be lying if I said it didn’t make me smile. The boy I’d like to couple with is Liam.”
But one fan fumed: “Millie taking Liam back like that surely just sends the wrong message that if you’re partner messes up, as-long as they’re nice to you after, they’ll be forgiven.”
Another predicted: “This Liam and Millie thing is going to end in tears, He cheated when he was in a villa down the road with cameras.”
However, some backed the relationship, with one fan writing: “I’m sorry but I LOVE Millie and Liam.
“I don’t get why some people are annoyed Millie’s gone back to him. What he did wasn’t right AT ALL but they’re weren’t official and you could tell he really regretted it so just move on.”
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN TO HAVE YOUR SAY!
Finally our voices can be heard beyond Twitter.
The voting lines are open for viewers to vote for their favourite couples. Those with the lowest votes will be sent packing. Here’s a reminder of the couples:
Liam’s cheesy gestures – including declarations of admiration – seem to have kinda won over Millie.
She described them as a bit ‘misguided’ but decided to take back Liam after he cheated on her in Casa Amor.
Tonight’s recoupling has definitely been a victory for the boys who played around A LOT on their girls.
Chloe then forgave Toby for dumping her for Abi and then ignored the fact he savagely dumped Abi for Mary in Casa Amor, only to go running back to Chloe.
And fans are FUMING.
“Cannot believe that worked. What invincibility cheat code is Toby using,” wrote one fan.
WE WILL BE SEEING MORE OF HUGO… AT LEAST FOR TONIGHT
Amy’s actually a bit of laugh, pointing out how her and Hugo dress the same and that he can’t make an iced coffee to save himself.
He seems relieved and might get some more camera time after being basically MIA the past couple of days.
KAZ – WE DID NOT SEE THAT ONE COMING
The Essex influencer chose Matt because “he’s trustworthy” and “trust is important to me.”
Tyler looks absolutely gutted, but it’s not all lost for him as Clarisse decides to choose him because of their “instant connection.”
As Tyler walks over to give her a kiss, neither look to thrilled that they’re together…
HERE WE GOOOOOOOO… IT’S RECOUPLING TIME!
The girls are wielding the power! They will choose which guy to couple up with in what could be a major shakeup of the series.
The only sure things are Jake and Libery, and Faye and Teddy.
Will Millie go back to Liam? And will Kaz stay with Matthew?
And in what would be a huge moment, will Chloe forgive Toby and go running back to the flip-flopper who’s now been with four women in the villa?
WE WERE PROMISED A ‘BLOODBATH’ TONIGHT
Fans are complaining tonight’s episode is boring, especially because it seems multiple girls are going to run back to the guys that did them dirty (see: Millie, Kaz and Chloe).
The past few night’s of Love Island have been filled with such drama it feels like ‘whiplash’ that the episode is going so slowly.
But hopefully the recoupling in only a few minutes time should shake things up.
“How has this season gone from dead, to DRAMA, back to dead again… I’ve got whiplash,” wrote one fan on Twitter.
LIAM’S GRAND GESTURE
Liam did not expect to find his ‘soulmate’ in Majorca in the Love Island villa.
He’s taking a shot at a ‘grand gesture’ by reading out a love note on stage to Millie in front of all the Islanders.
Filled with soppy gems such as, ‘You’re one in a Millie, and one in a million.’
He said that being away from her in Casa Amor – where he kissed Lillie multiple times and slept in bed with her – made him realise how special Millie was to him.
The blonde beauty is mad she found it cute, but admits ‘it’s not enough’ to win her back.
KEEP AN EYE ON THE DANCING
If any of the girls in the villa are not too sure about which boy they want to couple up with, I would suggest watching their dance moves.
Can they bust a move? If so, then maybe they’re the guy to pic.
As the Spice Girls once said: “If you can’t dance, you can’t do nothing for me.”
MABEL THE BOMBSHELL?
Pop star Mabel is performing for Islanders in the Villa tonight, but is she really there for a massive plot twist?
Will the Don’t Call Me Up singer actually enter the Villa as a potential love interest?
Now that is something that could really shakeup the series.
But probably highly unlikely as she’s already admitted to giving the Love Island girls a secret signal when she was in there.
SAM AND ABI JUST OUTED THEMSELVES AS NARCISSISTS
As the singletons hustle to find someone to recouple with Sam and Abi sat down for a chat.
“I just want someone to be obsessed with me,” Sam tells Abi.
“Me too,” she adds. “Is that too much to ask for?”
I’m not a psychologist, but that seems super unhealthy, but maybe it means they’ll be perfect for each other?
THE GRAFT IS ON AHEAD OF TONIGHT’S RECOUPLING
Now Dale and Lillie are flirting via skipping?
“I like chatting to you,” the Glasweigan tells her, only minutes after saying he fancied Abi.
“Vice versa,” Mary assures him.
The big smile on her face makes me think she wants to recouple with him.
