Love Island catch up: 3 talking points as Connor and Sophie are on the rocks ahead of tomorrow’s recoupling

Ellie Harrison

Tonight’s episode of Love Island saw Connagh and Finley enter the villa, the twins suffering quite a bit of rejection and Connor and Sophie’s relationship continue to be on the rocks after their tension on Wednesday night.

It wasn’t the most eventful episode but it was all paving the way for a recoupling in the next instalment…

Check out the biggest talking points from the episode below.

1. Connagh and Finley arrive

Two new boys arrived in the villa, and they could each choose two girls each to take on dates. Connagh chose Sophie (who said he looked like Anthony Joshua’s brother, although I wasn’t convinced) and Shaughna, who is definitely keen on him and enjoying giving Callum the cold shoulder. Finley, meanwhile, went for Siannise and Paige, who both clicked with him but were a little put off by how young he is: 20. Neither of the twins were picked, and they seemed a little bruised by the rejection.

2. Connor and Sophie are on the rocks

Last night’s episode ended with tense scenes between Connor and Sophie after she made a joke about being excited for new boys to arrive and Connor had a bit of a sense of humour failure. Then they made up in tonight’s episode, but not for long, as Sophie had to explain to Connor the difference between a joke and a non-joke and it became awkwardly clear he is more into her than she is into him.

3. The next recoupling is announced

Laura Whitmore will be strolling back into the villa tomorrow night for the next recoupling. And the one girl who is not picked will be sent packing. My bets are on one of the twins…

Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2.
