Love Island first look: The talent show is finally making its return


After a few drama-filled episodes, we can finally take a breather on tonight’s show as the talent show makes its return.

Before the islanders show off their quirky skills, Ron and Samie have a chat.

Ron decides to pull Samie for a chat after everything Lana has told him, and Samie says: “How are you for a start?”

Ron replies: “I’m not going to lie, I’m quite livid, I’m just not going to have it… I’m not having a whole gaff think that after one challenge I’m playing a game.”

Samie says: “That’s the way it’s been perceived Ron and people were talking about it.”

Ron replies: “The only way that’s being perceived is by either you or Tom going away and taking that and making out as if it was said that way.”

As they continue to talk, Samie says: “It was weird though, it was a weird comment.”

As the conversation goes back and forth, Samie says: “Ron, you said it, all I’m saying is that’s what you said and it can be perceived as weird and everyone in here has an opinion on it.”

Ron says: “If they’ve got an opinion, say it to me… Please relay your opinion on the fact you don’t think I’m game playing because I’m not having nine other people thinking I’m game playing when I’ve got my girlfriend in here and people are talking behind my back.”

Samie tells Ron: “I can’t influence nine other people’s opinion, I’ve had the chat with you, whoever does think it, you need to talk directly to them. I’m not doing that, I’m not cleaning up all of that.”

The following morning, Samie surprises Lana with a girls’ only breakfast as she says: “Everyone loves her, the boys love her, they all hold her in such high regard.”

Jessie aims to distract Lana by getting her to do her make-up while the other girls prepare the treat at the mini fire pit.

As they eat, Sanam says: “Lana I think you’ve got the biggest heart, you’re the kindest person I’ve ever come across, we want you to know how valued you are here.”

Lana tells the girls: “I just want to say I love you all and you’re honestly a massive part of my life now and I’m so happy I’ve got you all.”

That evening as the islanders take it east, Tom gets a text which reads: “Islanders, It’s your moment to shine and revel in the limelight as tonight you’ll perform at the Love Island talent show! #NiceBitOfTalent #AllEyesOnMe.”

As they gather around the fire pit, the islanders show off their secret talents.

Shaq is first and he performs a strip tease while Ron’s talent is surrounding a Rubik’s Cube as he says: “I do actually have a nerdy side, I know how to solve the Rubik’s Cube and I’m going to try and do it in ninety seconds.”

Casey plays the trumpet but the real surprise her is when the villa suddenly gets drenched as the rain starts to pour.

But the rain doesn’t dampen Will’s spirit as he performs a rap while Kai needs his help for his own artistic moment.

Love Island airs tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
