In episode 26, the girls were fooled into thinking that a night out away from the boys was on the cards, but that was actually the producers' covert plan to get the Casa Amor ball rolling.

With the original cast members now split up in separate villas, and a raft of new male and female bombshells entering the mix in a bid to turn their heads, things are about to get very, very interesting.

Will the established couples survive their biggest test yet? Tradition dictates it will be anything but plain sailing...

Fans are certainly expecting the twist to cause carnage for this year’s contestants, with RadioTimes.com readers predicting that Dami Hope and Indiyah Polack will be the only couple to survive the show’s next big challenge.

Viewers think there’ll be trouble in paradise for Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page, and Gemma Owen and Luca Bish, who chose to remain together at the latest re-coupling.

What's more, 60 per cent of Love Island fans think Casa Amor will break up Paige and Jacques.

Read on for everything we know so far about Casa Amor 2022.

On Friday 1st June, Casa Amor was officially announced, with Sunday's night's episode set to be the juiciest yet.

"Just when the islanders start to get comfortable in their couples, they are going to get a real shock as they are torn apart," a source told The Sun.

"This year’s Casa Amor promises to be the most explosive yet thanks to some seriously fiery characters, who have already shown their heads can be turned."

What is Casa Amor?

In Spanish, Casa Amor means Love House, and while you could say love does happen here, it's also the cause of a lot of drama.

Introduced in 2017, the twist sees the contestants split into boys and girls, with one group sent to a new villa.

Each house is then joined by a new batch of singles, and the islanders will get to decide if they want to leave their original partner for someone new. The issue is, their other half won't know whether they've chosen to stick or split until they're reunited in the main villa. Cue lots of fireworks!

How long are the cast in Casa Amor for?

Casa Amor usually lasts around three to four days, with the girls and boys getting to know their new islanders while away from their original partners.

They then get to decide if they'd like to stick with their partner or recouple with one of the Casa Amor bombshells, after which all islanders are reunited.

New episodes of Love Island air at 9pm on ITV2 and the ITV Hub every day except Saturdays. Check out our Entertainment hub for all the latest news, or find something to watch tonight with our TV Guide.
