The Love Island villa was rocked on Wednesday night’s episode during a shock recoupling when Ekin-Su had the selection of three men.
Turkish actress Ekin-Su selected Italian hunk Davide as they stood by the fireplace pit, leaving his former partner Antigoni to pair up with Charlie after Ekin-Su’s ex Jay was chosen by Danica.
Ekin-Su told the group of her decision: ‘Firstly that is going to be certainly one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever needed to make.
All change: Turkish actress Ekin-Su selected Italian hunk Davide as they stood by the fireplace pit, leaving his former partner Antigoni to pair up with Charlie after Ekin-Su’s ex Jay was chosen by Danica during Wednesday’s Love Island
‘I didn’t know whether to play it protected or take a risk. I personally would really like to provide this person a likelihood and I’m hoping he would too.
‘So the boy I would like to couple up with is Davide.’
Davide told her as she sat down next to him: ‘Nice speech.’
Last option: Looking shocked at Danica selecting Jay, Antigoni mouthed: ‘I am unable to consider this s**t,’ before standing up and selecting to couple up with Charlie
Surprise: Looking shocked at Danica selecting Jay, Antigoni mouthed: ‘I am unable to consider this s**t,’ before standing up and picking Charlie
Ekin-Su’s decision left Jay open to be picked by one other girl, with Danica saying before making her selection: ‘We have had some great conversations and I find him attractive but even when nothing comes from this I feel we could have an incredible friendship.’
Looking shocked at Danica selecting Jay, Antigoni mouthed: ‘I am unable to consider this s**t,’ before standing up and picking Charlie.
Pulling the remaining of the ladies for a chat, Antagoni said: ‘I just do not get it. Danica and Jay haven’t any connection.’
Pick of the bunch: Ekin-Su had the selection of three men – Davide, Jay and Charlie – as the ladies selected who they desired to couple-up with on Wednesday
Jay declared to the opposite boys: ‘I assumed I closed the door, I assumed it was a sure thing. I could not have closed it any more.
‘I feel I said to her, the door’s closed. Don’t pick me.’
Taking a seat with a few of her fellow Islanders later, Danica said: ‘If I genuinely knew, hands down, that Jay and Antigoni could possibly have something then I’m not saying it could have swayed what I used to be going to do however it may need been like, oh f**k.’
Honesty is the perfect policy? Jay insisted he had made it plain to Danica that he didn’t think they’d work as a pair before the recoupling, saying: ‘I feel I said to her, the door’s closed. Don’t pick me’
She added within the beach hut: ‘Have I missed something? Jay, if he smack bang closed that door romantically, then I assumed he would have closed that door romantically. I’m so confused.’
Danica then told Antagoni: ‘Today has been a bit wild and I feel me, you and Ekin were all in a little bit of a weird thing. I’m genuinely apologetic when you feel a certain way.’
Antagoni replied: ‘I do not have a problem with you in any respect, you’ve got to go along with your gut. It is not even like me and Jay are a thing. We’re just a possible conversation thing.
Checking in: Pulling the remaining of the ladies for a chat, Antagoni said: ‘I just do not get it. Danica and Jay haven’t any connection’
‘With Charlie, there isn’t any potential in any respect. Jay had said to me there was a possible romantic thing so it could have made more sense so that you can go along with Charlie.’
Meanwhile, Davide admitted he hoped Ekin-Su would select him within the recoupling despite him sneaking a kiss with Jay on the villa’s terrace while she was previously coupled-up with Davide earlier within the series.
Davide said: ‘To be honest I do not know what I would really like at this exact moment. I’m just having fun with Ekin-Su but perhaps if I can change my opinion about Ekin-Su.’

Elsewhere, Paige once more selected to couple up with Jaques, saying: ‘Since he’s been here he’s made my experience 100% higher … To this point, every thing is heading in the best direction and I’m excited to see it proceed.
As Tasha selected Andrew, she said: ‘Our connection gets stronger and stronger each day. I can stand here and say I have not felt like this about anyone ever … It’s crazy things have come this far despite every thing that is happened but without it we would not be where we’re.’
While as Indiyah selected to stick with Dam, she said: ‘From our first conversation we caught a vibe and we definitely had a connection … After I’m around him and I speak to him it literally seems like no person else is within the room.
Coming home: Davide said: ‘To be honest I do not know what I would really like at this exact moment. I’m just having fun with Ekin-Su but perhaps if I can change my opinion about Ekin-Su’
‘Sometimes it feels too good to be true but I really like like that and I would like it to feel like that without end.’
Gemma selected Luca, saying: ‘Since day one I used to be initially drawn to him. He keeps me on our toes … Our connection just gets stronger. I would really like to see where this takes us because I feel this could possibly be something special.’
Earlier within the episode, Ekin-Su spoke of the likelihood she may recouple with Davide, saying: ‘We just had a chat. I said, “How you’re feeling? Your heart obviously raced for me.” He said, Yeah, yeah it’s just game.”‘
Pondering on why she and Davide struggled to search out a real spark once they were previously coupled-up, she said: ‘I said prior to now, it was simply because I used to be pushing you. It was only a game.’
Unexpected? Danica shocked her fellow villa residents as she selected to couple up with Jay, prompting Antigoni to say: ‘I am unable to consider this s**t,’ before standing up and picking Charlie
Quizzed on whether he liked Ekin-Su by the boys, Davide said: ‘It is not about fancying. I’m not going to lie, I fancy her, she’s looking girl. In the event you asked me, would I shag her, I’d say yes. But not as a girlfriend.’
Following last night’s heart rate challenge, some boys were keen to make amends with their partners after a lot of guys set their sights on a number of the other girls in the course of the steamy dances.
Andrew surprised Tasha with a homemade breakfast after Tasha was left annoyed when he was seemingly too impressed by Danica’s moves.
Meanwhile on the day beds, Jacques pulled Paige for a chat to apologise for a way he reacted within the moment last night.
He said: ‘Whenever you actually opened up and told me why, I used to be like okay, I apologise. I should’ve had your feelings first before mine.’
Awkward: Danica said within the beach hut after learning of Jay’s disappointment: ‘Have I missed something? Jay, if he smack bang closed that door romantically, then I assumed he would have closed that door romantically. I’m so confused’
Within the Beach Hut he reflected: ‘Last night with Paige, I used to be quite selfish at first – I realised that pretty quick after I spoke to her. I should’ve been there for her right away.’
Back on the day beds, he told Paige: ‘I’d like to prove to you ways much you mean to me.’
Relaxing within the bean bag area, the Islanders discussed last night’s antics when Ekin-Su received a text which read: ‘Islanders, tonight there will probably be a recoupling wherein the ladies will select which boys they need to couple up with. #girlsontop #bigchickenergy’
With the facility firmly in her hands, Ekin-Su was confused about her next move, prompting her to talk to Gemma about Davide, asking: ‘Do you’re thinking that he’s serious about me?’
Gemma said: ‘I feel he’s but it’ll be an extended process, there still definitely is chemistry. Everyone can see it.’
Unwanted coupling: Antagoni told Danica of the recoupling results: ‘With Charlie, there isn’t any potential in any respect. Jay had said to me there was a possible romantic thing so it could have made more sense so that you can go along with Charlie’
Later within the Beach Hut, Ekin-Su pondered her decision: ‘I even have these three boys in front of me, all of them have given me something great. Charlie is amazing, I’m myself with him- every thing flows, nothing is forced. Jay obviously there’s a really big sexual chemistry with him, then you’ve got Davide who we did start something… what do I do?’
Talking to Jay before the recoupling, Danica said: ‘If I’m honest, you were in my top three after I first got here in, looks sensible, so it’s not like I’d be completely closed off to being in a pair with yourself. I feel it’s necessary for me to let you already know that you simply’re anyone that I might consider.’
Antigoni was seen chatting to Jay after he spoke to Danica, with Antagoni telling him she ‘is not going to be second best’ ahead of the recoupling.
Sailing through: Gemma and Luca were certainly one of the couples who selected to remain together within the recoupling
Unsure of her next move Antigoni, discussed her options with the ladies: ‘With Davide, I’m super comfortable – we actually get along. Whatever it ended up being, it could be authentic.
‘With Jay there was an initial attraction there but obviously I got here in as this whole saga with Paige was unravelling and now he’s turned round in the previous couple of days and is like I would like to get to know you on a more romantic level.
‘A part of me would really like to get to know Jay still’
