After Love Island's 2023 winter season delivered its most dramatic episode to date, there's a lot to catch-up on after the islanders made the most of their Casa Amor mini-break.


From Will Young and Tanya Manhenga surprising everyone with their turning heads, to Cynthia revealing the truth about Casey O'Gorman's Casa antics, it's been an eventful few days in the South African villa – and with just a few weeks left, we're hoping Movie Night will return to stoke up the firepit flames.

Back to unpack the islanders' drama-filled suitcases is's Love Island Lowdown – and this week, Entertainment and Factual writer Lauren Morris is joined by Associate Editor Helen Daly to spill all the latest gossip, news and predictions.

Kicking off as always with Can I Pull You for a Catch Up, Helen and Lauren discuss the biggest moments from the last week, from Olivia Hawkins and Kai Fagan's tense exchange during the Casa Amor recoupling to the heart-breaking moment Jessie Wynter learnt about Will's betrayal.

The pair then move on to deliver the Factor 50 Forecast, predicting what's to come from the upcoming sixth week – and if the producers decide to bring back Movie Night, you'll want to get your popcorn at the ready.
