Love Island is back tonight with what is shaping up to be a drama-filled episode.
Newcomer Arabella is making her entrance in the Spanish villa – and according to a teaser shared by ITV2, she just might turn Danny’s head. Only Danny is currently coupled up with Yewande, so he will most likely have to make some serious choices in the near future.
Meanwhile, Lucie is still recovering from Joe’s departure after her partner was dumped from the villa along with islander Elma. Lucie has appeared heartbroken over Joe’s departure, but as she remains in the villa – and still has a spot on the show to defend – we have yet to see how she will handle her newfound singlehood.
We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

Arabella: snog Danny, join Curtis, avoid Tommy.
Anna goes with: avoid Anton (poor Anton), marry Curtis, and snog Jordan.
Maura’s picks are: snog Danny, marry Curtis, avoid Anton (because of the shaving).
The islanders are getting ready for the evening. Yewande pledges to be more affectionate with Danny. Oooooh and the ladies are playing “snog, marry, avoid”.
“Don’t come to Love Island if you don’t want to be loved,” muses Danny in what is sure to become an iconic line.
Maura is urging Danny to “nip [things] in the bud” with Yewande – a “savage” take, per Molly-Mae’s assessment.
Yewande and Danny are now having a chat that is best described as chilly.
Anton tells other islanders he doesn’t see how the date could have gone any better.
Anton, meanwhile, tells Arabella he’s a “mama’s boy”, by which he means his mother shaves his bum every once in a while.

Other islanders beg him not to try to kiss Arabella.
Arabella’s second choice for a date is Anton, who is absolutely over the moon.
Danny thoroughly enjoyed his date with Arabella. Michael urges Yewande to tell Danny how she wants things to go between them.
Danny tells Arabella he and Yewande are “struggling a little bit” and he feels he’s putting most of the effort in.
Danny’s 21 and Arabella’s 28.
