Last night’s Love Island was pretty momentous, with on-again-off-again couple Megan and Wes finally making it official and deciding to become boyfriend and girlfriend (for those not in the know, a step above the usual “coupling up”).
- That Love Island kiss between Jack and Georgia was filmed TWICE
- Did Love Island new boy Idris get to see the episodes with Georgia and Jack’s original kiss?
- Fakery claims and staged scenes: has Love Island become too manipulative?
After the shock of Megan sacking off Eyal, Wes leaving Laura for Megan, Megan turning her back on Wes for new Alex then Wes winning her back, it finally seems like there might be a happy ending for the couple – but it’s fair to say that Love Island fans still haven’t forgiven them for their muggy actions thus far.

The producers may be trying to make us like Megan and Wes but listen, she’s been in the bottom 3 a few times now – she knows the public doesn’t like her. She’s now doing the absolute most… From being a girl’s girl with Samira and being all over Wes. Stay woke. #LoveIsland

So no, they haven’t quite won the nation’s hearts like fellow official couple Jack and Dani (or even Josh and Kaz). But elsewhere, some viewers were actually willing to give the pair a chance.
Props to Megan. I feel like she's just very insecure and is constantly seeking validation from men to feel more confident. But she found someone is fully obsessed with her and helps her feel secure in a relationship. Took a lot of balls for her to ask Wes, congrats #loveisland

Unpopular opinion: but Megan and Wes are actually really well suited and I think they’ll actually last longer than most people think x #LoveIsland

So who knows? Maybe Wes and Megan could still turn a few other peoples’ opinions on their heads, and even have a shot at winning the eventual 50 grand prize at the end of the competition.
OK, yes, that’ll still be Jack and Dani but listen, we have to at least pretend it’s still a competition.
Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9.00pm
