Love Island’s heart-rate challenge is back and it’s bound to bring the drama

Sarah McKenna Barry

Will heart-rates flutter?

Tonight’s episode of Love Island will see the highly anticipated return of the heart-rate challenge, and it looks like it might ruffle some feathers.

That’s right, the islanders will don their sexiest outfits and perform routines in a bid to get the heart-rates of the other islanders in a flutter.

As the girls dance their socks off, the lads begin to see a different side to the ladies of the villa.

After Liberty’s performance, Tyler says, “I’m used to the jokey, silly side of Lib, but she comes out looking sexy and bossing it.”

The challenge also sees things heat up between new islanders Priya and Brett.

After Priya’s turn, Brett says: “Priya definitely surprised me. I don’t know what I’m going to say that won’t get me into trouble!”

Afterwards, it’s the boys’ turn to take to the stage, but will it see heart rates flutter? We’ll have to tune in to find out.

On top of that, tonight’s episode will see Tyler try to take his relationship with Kaz to the next step.

It hasn’t exactly been smooth-sailing for this couple, particularly since Casa Amor. However, it looks like they’re moving in the right direction, as Tyler enlists Jake’s help to ask Kaz if she wants to be exclusive.

In the Beach Hut, Tyler gets candid about his feelings for Kaz.

He says: “I usually have nerves of steel but I have never sweated over a girl like this before. It’s crazy.”

Tyler’s approach sees him bring Kaz on a trip down memory lane as they revisit all the places in the villa that were significant in their budding relationship.

But, will it be enough to make Kyler a thing? We can only hope.

Love Island continues tonight at 9 pm on Virgin Media One and on the Virgin Media Player.
