Loyalties were tested all over the villa as our couples had to choose the Islanders they thought were least compatible, putting Anton and Elma and Joe and Lucie at risk.
Anna and Maura cosied up to new boys Jordan and Tom on a couple of hot dates, and despite Maura feeling pretty smitten with model Tom, our new arrival also showed an interest in Elma, leaving both Anton and Maura feeling awks. Elsewhere it was a romantic new beginning for Molly-Mae and Tommy, who put a dramatic few days behind them and shared their first romantic snog. Here's what we learnt on day 15.
1. Your true feelings come out when your place in the villa is at stake
We like to keep the Islanders on their toes, and having to choose the least compatible couples among your mates is one way to do it. An agonising decision for any Islander, there were plenty of truths shared among our pairs as they weighed up their options.
"On the outside, I just don't see them working," Molly-Mae told Tommy.
"Anton and Elma. I love Anton but I don't see how they're compatible," Amber said to Michael, who was in agreement.
Meanwhile across the garden, Danny said of Tommy: "I feel like his head will always be turned."
2.You need serious glasses for serious business
Behold: the look of an Islander making a very important decision.
3. Curtis is a superstitious soul
10 years bad sex? We’re not taking any chances, and neither is Anna.
*furiously taps glass on the table*
4. We can’t move for professional mannequins
The villa is choc full of beautiful people, and we've popped two more models into the mix just to keep the eye candy on point. Both of our new hotties Tom and Jordan are "professional mannequins", as Tom put it. We're not complaining...
5. Thank u, next
There's nothing like a date with a hot model to help you forget that beautiful boxer back at the villa…
“I’ve seen you’re into Tommy," asked Tom as he got chatting to the Irish beauty.
“Ah, don’t go there. I’m not into Tommy anymore!” she replied.
6.Do Bits is so 2018
After a night that saw Curtis and Amy get a little closer under the covers, the dancer was quick to debrief the boys on the previous night's... action. But there will be no resurrection of the Do Bits Society if Curtis has got anything to do with it.
"We’re all gentlemen here so we’re not going to say bits or whatever," he stated. A gentleman never tells, after all.
"He hasn’t taken off yet but he’s checked in. He’s in the lobby," remarked Michael.
7. Islanders who wear orange together… flirt like mad together
They'd only known each other for one evening, but the matching outfits were already out for Anna and Jordan. We're taking this as a good sign, right?
8. Anton can’t catch a break
Poor Anton. He's finally got himself in a romantic couple and a hot new model has come in and declared he's got eyes for Elma.
Our Scot was very gracious when Tom pulled him for a chat, and gave our new arrival his blessing to get to know Elma. Even if his body language here tells a different story...
9.The tables have turned on Maura
Maura enjoyed a lovely date with new Islander Tom, helping her to mend her wounds after Tommy chose to couple up with Molly-Mae despite some serious grafting from Maura. But the new arrival admitted he also liked the look of Elma, who declared she was willing to keep her options open, much to Maura's horror.
“I’m p***** off. She’s coupled up with Anton, she has the chance. I’m not coupled up with anyone. Why can’t she give her friend a chance?”
10. It's a new day for Tommy and Molly-Mae
He's king of romantic declarations as well as king of the ring, and Tommy did not disappoint when he declared his feelings to Molly-Mae leaving her (and us) melting.
"I’ve never met a girl I’ve got on with this much. Every time I wake up next to you it just makes smile because I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve waking up next to you," he told her.
Romance Factor: 3000. Cue the couple's first kiss...
