Explosive! Love Island viewers have lauded Tuesday night’s episode as the ‘best ever’ following a series of explosive rows
Confrontation: Liv decided to confront Tom about his kiss with Ellie which kicked off a string of different arguments including with Zara, Ellie, Tanyel with Kai, Aaron with Tanyel, and Lara with Ron
Tom was getting it from all angles from early on in the episode when Liv found out about her love interest smooching Ellie on the terrace days earlier.
She pulled him for a chat where he attempted to weasel his way out of his secret kiss.
During Monday night’s episode, Model and property developer Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown, 25, seethed as she learned of Tom’s kiss with Ellie, 25, just hours after the pair had decided to end their coupling.
Letting rip: Tanyel also let rip at Kai for his head being turned for new girl Samie as their situationship begins to break down
Argument: He admitted to the boys and Samie herself that he was no longer interested in Tanyel, and she took the tension of the night as an opportunity to give him a piece of her mind
And on Tuesday, semi-professional footballer Tom, 23, shocked Olivia, 27, as he attempted to cover his tracks when it came to kissing Ellie, claiming he kissed her on a different day than Olivia stated.
When Olivia got wind of his antics, she confronted him, asking: ‘Do you have anything you want to tell me?’, before adding: ‘Nothing about the terrace today?’
Appearing baffled, Tom asked: ‘No, what?’, prompting Olivia to clarify: ‘Yeah, with Ellie.’
Overjoyed: Fans were all left saying the same thing, that all the drama coming within just an evening segment of the episode was exactly what they were waiting for
Buying time, Tom asked: ‘The terrace today?’, adding: ‘Nothing on the terrace today.’
Olivia asked: ‘No kiss?’
Attempting to back out of the situation on a technicality, Tom said: ‘Well we had a kiss the other day, not today.’
Unimpressed, Olivia asked: ‘Didn’t fancy telling me that?’ before slamming him for claiming the blonde beauty was ‘just a friend’.
Feud: Ellie was awkwardly placed in the middle of the dispute between Tom and Liv after she and the lothario kissed on the terrace days before
Awkward: After speaking to Tom about the whole ordeal, Ellie headed up to the dressing room where the girls discussed Liv’s situation and how she feels
Elsewhere, Lana Jenkins hit back at Ron Hall after he confessed his head had been turned by new arrival Sami Elishi.
The blonde beauty admitted that she’d finally had enough of Ron’s indecision about their future, insisting he doesn’t ‘make her feel like he’s number one.’
Her reaction led many fans to declare that it was finally time for her to sever ties with Ron and pursue a connection with someone else, with many noting she deserved ‘so much better.’
Tanyel also let rip at Kai for his head being turned for new girl Samie.
