Ekin-Su and Nathalia had an explosive bust-up over pineapple on pizza – before Danica ditched Reece for Jamie in a surprise recoupling on the latest ‘Love Island’ episode.
The food row erupted when Davide found himself at the heart of a battle for his affections.
It came after new bombshell Nathalia made no secret she wanted to get her hands on the ‘Italian stallion’, currently paired with Ekin-Su.
The love rivals clashed on Friday night’s (22.07.22) episode over their differing attitudes towards pizza toppings and took part in a pancake cook off.
Nathalia said: “Italian pizzas are the best – not the ones with the pineapple.”
Ekin-Su said she and Davide like pineapple on their pizza, before the Italian businessman denied it was to his taste.
The row rolled on in the kitchen, with Ekin-Su asking Nathalia: “You alright? Have you got an issue with me?”
Nathalia replied: “No, I haven’t got an issue with you,” prompting Ekin-Sun to say: “Are you sure?.. because if feels like you’ve got an issue with me.”
Nathalia added: “If I had an issue with you, I’d let you know babe. Maybe you have an issue with yourself?”
Ekin-Su told her to “drop the attitude as things got more heated, adding: “I hope you’re happy, you got a little show of the night.”
They finally settled their dispute in a pancake making competition where Davide was chosen to judge the winner – after Nathalia branded her rival “Ekin-who..?”
Davide picked Ekin-Su as winner, but Gemma said in the Beach Hut: “As much as I'm team Ekin, I personally preferred Nathalia's. She is never to know that but Nathalia's were better by a lot.”
Viewers blasted Gemma’s comment “shady” as one couple is now at risk of being dumped on Sunday. (24.07.22)
