*Warning - Contains spoilers for Love Island 2024.*


Love Island has only been back on TV for two weeks, yet there has been plenty of drama and a number of chaotic dares and challenges that'll keep the gossip mill churning for the next six weeks.

Amongst those in the villa is Ciaran Davies, who has found himself in some hot water after revealing the truth about a comment he made to Nicole Samuel. While honesty is the policy, Nicole did not take to it too well.

In a first look at tonight's episode (17th June), Ciaran admits to Nicole that when asked if he could have chosen someone else to kiss in the challenge, he would've chosen Grace. Understandably so, Nicole is not impressed.

She asks: "Why? Right…why would you say something like that?" Assuring Nicole, Ciaran responds: "I didn't mean it, it was out of pettiness because I don't fancy Grace."

It appears Nicole thinks otherwise, as she replies: "Well you obviously do… I don't know what to say… crack on with her…"

Before walking away from the conversation with Ciaran, Nicole says: "Comments like that just shows how immature you actually are."


As he hopes to find a real connection with someone in the villa, here's everything you need to know about Love Island 2024 contestant Ciaran Davies.
