“No I f***ing ain’t,” Luca responded.
“I think you’re definitely punching and you should be proud to say it because Gem’s unreal,” Paige retorted.
The atmosphere turned from jokey to sour as Luca told Paige that she was the one punching with Adam.
Over by the poolside, all the girls agreed that Luca was out of his depth but Adam played peacemaker saying that “all that matters is yous two”.
Paige, meanwhile, admitted that while she might be punching physically, she has a superior personality, which Adam agreed with.
In a recent podcast appearance, Love Island star Coco Lodge, who was voted off the show shortly after coupling up with Andrew, called out male contestants for making “sexist” remarks about her appearance.
Speaking on The Murad Merali Podcast, the 27-year-old said that she had been called “a four out of 10 by some of the boys” during filming.
“I don’t know who said it, Summer heard it,” she said
Last week, the ITV2 show received more than 3,500 complaints via Ofcom following the controversial “Mad Movies” episodes where the cast watched clips of their fellow contestants in potentially compromising situations.
During the episode, Luca was seen to be “egging on” other boys to stray from their partners during Casa Amor.
In response to Luca’s behaviour, his family issued a statement that apologised on his behalf, as viewers expressed their upset with the scenes on social media.
Love Island continues nightly (apart from Saturdays) on ITV2 at 9pm.
