It all got a bit Jeremy Kyle last night as Love Island 2018 treated us to an awkward lie detector test followed by an explosive argument.
Fan favourites Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer were seen in a fiery fight after the former was seemingly caught lying in the polygraph exam.
In particular, Dani was upset after Jack’s negative no response to the question “Could you be tempted by other girls outside the villa?” was reported to be a lie.

After confronting Jack about her worries, an argument broke out when the white-toothed pen salesman said Dani was ignoring all the questions he had answered truthfully.
The row eventually broke down after Dani walked away, with Jack calling her “pathetic”.

Worst still, the fight isn’t over yet, with the two seen clashing once again in the ‘next time’ teaser. And Jani fans are really worried about the couple…

Jack and Dani fighting is like when you’re 10 and your mum and dad have a disagreement and you start worrying that they’re gonna get a divorce and that the world with end… brutal. #loveisland

But many more are frustrated at the argument, accusing the show of trying to sabotage Jack and Dani’s relationship.
After all, although RadioTimes.com was assured last year that the results were genuine, the reliability of polygraph testing is widely disputed. Remember, the results wouldn’t be admissible as evidence in court…
the producers are using the lie detector as a way of boycotting Jack and Dani’s clear win, they’re making other couples look better so that there’s more competition bc at the moment they’re the couple that will easily win it…pathetic #loveisland

Can we have less:
– Trying to screw with Dani and Jack
– Trying to break Laura down
– Alexandra not realising how amazing she is
And can we have:
– The mugged off challenge
– The baby challenge
– Danny Dyer in the villa#LoveIsland

The producers are making up the answers for the lie detector test to try and boost other couples up for winning because atm there’s no competition for beating Jack and Dani #loveisland

So, will the lie detector split the villa’s strongest couple?
