Love Island’s Mike flirts with two islanders ahead of recoupling in first look

He’s not wasting any time

It looks like Love Island’s Mike Boateng has definitely put yesterday behind him.


ITV has delivered a first look at tonight’s episode, and judging by the Cheshire Cat grin on Mike’s face, he’s completely forgotten about his split with Leanne Amaning the day before.

In the preview clip, the 24-year-old can be seen cracking on with not one, but two islanders.

At the end of last night’s episode, viewers were teased with a clip from tonight showing the former police officer chatting up Sophie Piper.

And in the latest video, Mike can be seen fully working his magic, as he tells the 21-year-old: “I’m not going to close my mind to any possibilities.”

Sophie is later seen in the Beach Hut, telling the camera: “I was like ‘woah’. I didn’t even know what to say to him because it’s just unexpected.”

But Mike’s flirting doesn’t stop there, as he moves on to Jess Gale, who he was previously coupled up with.

As they chill by the pool, Mike tells her: “You and Mr Luke looking all cosy.”

Jess then asks: “Do we look cosy?” to which Mike responds: “You do look cute, but you know what it feels like I’ve just almost come back in brand new getting to know people again.”

The camera then switches to Leanne, who is lounging on a cabana with Sophie nearby.

And it’s safe to say she’s not enjoying her view, as she tells Sophie: “Why have they gone right there? The villa is so big by the way.”

Completely unaware of Leanne’s comments, Mike continues his chat with Jess and reveals that he’s still interested in her.

He says: “I feel like we have a good connection already and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to explore that a bit further.”

Later in the clip, Luke Mabbott receives a text, which shakes everyone up.

He announces that there’ll be a recoupling, in which the boys will pick and the girl not chosen will go home.

What a difference a day makes…
