With Love Island fans sensing the big Casa Amor twist approaching, talk is focused on when exactly the villa will be split in two and the couples faced with their toughest test yet.


Amid speculation the moment might be just around the corner, ITV entertainment reporter Radzi Chinyanganya seemed to let slip when Casa Amor is happening on Good Morning Britain today (Thursday 30th June).

After recapping all the drama from last night's recoupling, Radzi ran through the bookies' current odds, with Jacques O'Neill and Paige Thorne and Dami Hope and Indiyah Polack favourites to win.

"With Casa Amor coming next week that could all change in an eye blink," he said. has contacted ITV asking for confirmation.

Last night saw the fallout from the previous episode's heart rate challenge continue, with Dami and Andrew Le Page both having some making up to do to get back in the good books of Indiyah and Tasha Ghouri respectively.

Serving the girls breakfast seemed to do the trick, while Jacques also made a beeline for Paige to apologise for how he'd behaved the night before when she had tried to talk to him about his heart rate being raised the most by his ex, Gemma Owen.

But the real action came later in the day, when the girls found out they'd be picking their boys in a recoupling that night.

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu was in a position of power as she weighed up her options: Davide Sanclimenti, Jay Younger or Charlie Radnedge.

In the end, she appeared to lay her cards on the table by picking Davide – could the pair rekindle their romance after all?

Things got rocky, however, when Danica Taylor chose to couple up with Jay, who Antigoni Buxton had her sights set on, leaving a less-than-pleased Antigoni to pair up with Charlie.
