Love Island is known for its awkward moments and challenges and after ex-TOWIE star Joey Essex sent rumblings through the villa, the original contestants had to perform a series of dares around the firepit.

Joey was quick to make an impact as he was told he had to choose the three Islanders he wanted to snog the most, picking Nicole, Sam and Harriet. Welsh contestant Nicole was delighted to neck a reality TV legend.

While the Aberdare accounts manager also snogged fellow Welsh contestant Ciaran Davies from Pencoed and said during a chat in the villa beach hut that it was a better kiss, Nicole truly could not get over the fact she had kissed Joey Essex - and we know this because she couldn't stop telling all the other girls.

Apparently, Nicole's mam will be equally as chuffed too the 24-year-old mused in the bright orange dressing room. "I kissed Joey Essex! My mam's gonna be looking back on this and think "my daughter just kissed Joey Essex."

Fans of Love Island were in a teasing mood as Nicole mentioned each time she was on screen in the first 30 minutes of Tuesday's episode that she kissed Joey. One wrote: "Nicole’s claim to fame is that she kissed Joey Essex. She can’t stop banging on about it."

Another added: "If you guys didn’t know Nicole kissed THE Joey Essex had to point that out since she ain’t talk about it." While a third said: "Nicole we get it. you kissed Joey Essex. I don’t think it’s a big deal to anyone but you."

Unfortunately, Nicole wasn't the steal for Joey at the end of the episode and looked downcast as Joey picked Sam. Elsewhere in the game, Islanders were also challenged to perform sexy dances and, the one which fans hate, the faking an orgasm in front of the group. Poor Nicole was up for this and did not see out the task.

Viewers at home were decidedly fed up of this task, and called out the producers for its cringey nature. One wrote on X: "I’m begging you guys PLEASE stop doing this fake orgasm dare." Another said: "I would crawl out of that villa through glass before I acted out an orgasm for 30 seconds are you mad??? The FBI could not get that out of me."

A third said: "Idk if I’m just getting older but I can’t watch these challenges anymore. I ran out the room when she had to pretend to orgasm for 30 secs."

Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV1, ITV2 and ITVX.
