The lads' masterplan to get Alex into Megan on Love Island had everyone in stitches

All’s fair in love and war? Our recap.

(Spoilers if you haven’t watched the episode which aired June 14)

WITH THE DUST settling on Adam and Rosie’s blow-out from the night before, our Islanders were asked to recouple, with no one being dumped due to Niall’s exit earlier this week.

Dani picked Jack, Laura picked Wes, Hayley picked Charlie, Georgia picked Josh, Megan picked Eyal, Samira picked Alex …

… Which meant Rosie had to pick Adam.

Watch the clip below to see Adam’s ego bruise in real time.


However, Laura really made it clear to Adam that his past behaviour with gals in the villa won’t be tolerated any further.

I just want you to have a bit of a kick up the arse. It’s fine if you decide then that you don’t like Rosie, you don’t have to like everyone but it’s just these girls have feelings as well and the way that you’ve acted is just stupid and you don’t need to be like that.
You don’t want to be with someone who is insecure, you’ve already said that, but your actions are making girls insecure. Just take some responsibility.”


Anyway, with peace restored to the villa, the producers decided to further torture viewers by making contestants compete in the most horrific challenge in the show’s history – transferring a full course meal across an obstacle course via their mouths.

“Look ma! I made it!”

Also, can anyone spot the difference here?

Uncanny. I think it’s the eyes.

Somehow, Laura and Wes “won” that challenge, and got to go on a romantic date outside a church. Kind of weird, but ok ITV.

Both of them got straight into it – Laura made it clear she wants babies in the future, while Wes pretty much asked her to move in with him (and his parents). The things we’ll do for love/£50,000, eh?

Meanwhile, despite Megan not picking him at recoupling, Alex is still vying for her affections – but this time, he’s brought back-up.

For ‘Operation: Doctor Do More’ (get it?), Adam and Charlie attempted to distract Eyal while Alex made his case to Megan.

Charlie: “Quick, neither of us can relate to Eyal’s deep fake bullshit, what should we do?!”

Adam: “Eh …”

An absolute masterclass in shite talk.

Meanwhile, Alex was giving a Dragon’s Den-worthy pitch to Megan.

I think there’s a lot we have in common. I think you’re really hot. [Eyal's] a great guy, but did you come here because you want your usual type?
And if you do the same actions, if you might change you action you might get different result. Sometimes you’ve got to grasp the opportunity.”

Go off, Doctor Alex.

Will Megan EVER make her bloody mind up? Only time will tell.

And all the other stuff that happened in the villa…

  • Alex let Laura cut his hair.
  • Jack said Alex was a ‘peng sort’. Don’t worry, it’s a compliment! (We think).
