Love Island: Mehdi makes his move on Whitney as the Hideaway welcomes its first guest

Ellen Fitzpatrick


Tonight’s Love Island is getting steamy, love is in the air and new bombshells are showing their true colours.

It’s another eventful evening in the villa as the Islanders join together at the fire pit for a game of “Ready, Sex, Go.”

The rules are simple, a sex position is announced and two couples have to race to be the first to show it and the couple that shows the best demonstration then gets to read out a dare and choose which islander they want to complete it.

Bombshell Whitney is up first to do a dare as must give one of the boys a pole dance, Molly is later dared to snog the three islanders she has the most sexual tension with, going for Zachariah, Mitchel and Tyrique.

After kissing Zachariah first, Mitchell says: “I can taste Zach.”

Zachariah is dared to snog the Islander he’d most like to have a sneaky link with if his current partner wasn’t in the Villa, and picks Molly, which Mitchell then says: “Oi bro, come up for air yeah!”

Following the challenge, Mitchell reveals to Whitney that he only wants to get to know Molly – but does she feel the same?

The following morning, Mehdi chats to Whitney and tells her: “I like your personality, obviously you are confident”

Whitney asks: “Do you like that?”

Mehdi admits: “Yeah, I do like that. I need someone that is confident enough to know what she wants. All the girls are beautiful, but what I’m looking for is brains”

Whitney agrees: “Yeah, I like intelligence as well, I’m very intellectual.”

Asking him who his top two in the villa is, Mehdi reveals: “You.” But how will Whitney respond?

As the night comes around again, the Hideaway opens for the first time, but not for just anybody. A new bombshell has arrived and chooses three girls to take on a date.

Ella gets a text that reads: “Ella, I’m waiting to date you on the hideaway terrace. I’ll give the other two girls a shout later.”

But who else will he choose?

Love Island airs tonight at 9PM on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player, proudly sponsored by Virgin Mobile.
