What happened in tonight’s episode?

The Islanders started off their morning talking about their sexual frustration in the villa, with Arabella Chi explaining to Lucie, Anton Danyluk and Jordan Hames about the danger zone.

“When you’re in bed smooching but you can’t have sex, I feel like that is between a 6 and a 10 [in the danger zone]. When you pet someone, that is a 1.

“I feel like it’s building up. Last night, we were at a 6 and now I’m at an 8 and I’m thinking, I don’t want to get to that 10.”

Meanwhile, on the terrace, Maura Higgins and Anna Vakili were discussing similar topics as the pharmacist recalled her steamy night with model Jordan.


“It’s hard… it was passionate let’s just say, and frustrating,” she said before Maura weighed in, saying: “I’m keeping my hands to myself… it’s tough in here.”

Anna then went on to mention how she’d grown a genuine connection with Jordan and she found him very attractive, leading Maura to assure the bombshell that she had absolutely nothing to worry about with how things were going between the two.

Elsewhere, Amy Hart and Curtis Pritchard’s relationship were deemed as goals by Danny Williams and Arabella – it seemed everyone in the villa had wondered whether they would end up sharing something that substantial while on the show.

Amy later told Molly-Mae that she felt somewhat ready to leave the island and start living her life with Curtis by her side, mentioning how “my godsons are going to utterly adore him.”

On the daybeds, Jordan had informed Anna about his chat with Tom Walker the night prior – when the model had confessed that Maura was not exactly ticking all of his boxes.

“He said that he feels that Maura is not his usually type and sometimes when she says stuff in the group, it makes him cringe a bit which sort of puts him off her,” Jordan gushed.

The conversation later led Anna to have a word with Maura, letting her know how Tom had been going to Jordan for advice on their coupling – and to no surprise, it infuriated the grid girl.

Further on, Molly-Mae had received a text revealing how the Islanders would take part in the Online Buzz challenge, with contestants finding out what the public thought of them.

Lucie and Anton – who were the hosts – read out a viewer’s tweet and the couples had to guess who the message was referred to.

Some of the tweets included:

“What BLANK said about Molly playing a game was bang on.”

“BLANK and BLANK are meant to be, look at them.”

“BLANK is buff. Michael is BLANK by Amber. And BLANK is the perfect man.”

The tweet that caused the most controversy was: “Nah BLANK deserves more than BLANK she doesn’t like him, she likes 50k”

When Tom correctly answered Tommy and Molly-Mae, the blonde beauty stood in absolute shock before venting in the Beach Hut: “Wow. I’m actually fuming.”

“I’m annoyed because I just feel like to bring money into it, what am I meant to say? I’m speechless, to be honest.”

The task had definitely shifted the mood in the villa, with certain Islanders paranoid about how their actions on the show had impacted people’s perception of them.

Maura later tried to assure Molly that she shouldn’t work herself up over a tweet, but nothing could stop the 21-year-old from thinking about the task.

On the beanbags, Tommy took the time to have a chat with the boys, asking them if he felt as if Molly-Mae was playing a game with him, before Danny chimed in, saying: “We’d tell you.”

Anton stunned the group when he shared his personal opinion on the matter, telling the boxer: “It’s not for me to say, mate, it’s got nothing to do with me. You know what your relationship is like, it’s not for me to say.”

On the terrace, Maura asked Lucie what she thought about the chance of her getting back with Tommy, and instead of shutting her down, the surfer admitted that her male friends usually end up dating her.

Lucie didn’t rule out a potential reconciliation with Tommy if the opportunity had presented itself.

In the Beach Hut, she revealed: “Obviously I went on a date with him so I was considering it back then so I mean, you can never really say never.

“Sometimes when you’re best friends with guys, sometimes you end up together so I’m never going to say ‘No.’”

Tommy later had a chat with Lucie about his romance with Molly and people’s perception that they were “meant to be” while Molly shared her concerns to Amy about the situation.

“Obviously I don’t think there is an issue, I don’t think there’s anything I need to be worried about but at the same time they are very close and if it’s coming across to people that they are meant to be,” she said.

Does Molly feel threatened by Lucie’s closeness to Tommy now that she knows how viewers have felt about their chemistry?
