I guess we’ll just have to tune in tonight.
This week, fans have been less than impressed with Love Island, to say the least.
For starters, viewers were upset with the show for sending the girls a postcard which showed an uncontextualised photo of Teddy kissing another girl. Many thought this would unfairly jeopardise his relationship with Faye, despite the fact that Teddy’s been sleeping on the day bed all week.
Last night, however, after expecting some closure, viewers of the show were privy to yet another cliffhanger. Worst of all, it happened mid-recoupling, meaning we still have to wait to see how things stand with Faye, Teddy, Liam and Millie.
As the episode came into its final quarter, we saw Chloe couple up with Dale, while Hugo returned to the villa with Casa Amor’s Amy.
Next up, it was Abigail’s turn to make her decision. Admitting that she didn’t get to know the new boys, Abigail told Laura Whitmore that she hopes to recouple with Toby.
However, those hopes were dashed when Toby walked in with Mary from Casa Amor, leaving Abigail single. Admitting that he felt it was early days, he said he was surprised she hadn’t picked one of the new guys.
By this point, the recoupling felt like it had found its stride, and viewers were confident that we’d see the rest of it play out.
However, last night’s episode ended right there and then.
Many took to Twitter to vent.
“you guys are annoying man,” one fan wrote. “Tomorrow is FRIDAY. We have LIVES you could have fit it all in an hour.”

Another felt that it was tactical to leave viewers wanting more.
“The producers knew to leave the Kaz/Tyler/Faye/Teddy recoupling until tomorrow”, one fan tweeted.

One Twitter user saw the writing on the wall.
They wrote: “Oh my god, they’re not going to reveal Liam’s choice till tomorrow are they”.
