Over the past few days, the boys have been spending time in Casa Amor with six new girls, whilst the girls have been getting to know new boys in the main villa, and on Thursday’s (06.02.20) episode of the ITV2 reality show, the two villas rejoined with each Islander taking part in a recoupling.
And in a shock twist, one of the show’s strongest couples has been split up, as 25-year-old Shaughna decided to stick with her partner Callum, but he wasn’t loyal to her, as he instead chose to bring Molly, also 25, back to the main villa.
Speaking as she made her decision before knowing the outcome of Callum’s choice, Shaughna said:
‘I’m nervous. I’m preparing for the worst, but hoping for the best. I don’t have much faith.
‘The past few days have definitely been an eye opener. They’ve definitely made me realise that I probably moan at him way too much and I just miss having him around. So I do want him back, preferably on his own.
‘He had his loyalty tested with Eve [Gale], he had his loyalty tested a little bit with Rebecca, my luck’s been good up until here, so I’m hoping that it’s still there’.
Host Laura Whitmore then asked Callum to come out, and he emerged from the villa with blonde beauty Molly on his arm, leaving the original girls shocked.
But fans will have to wait until Friday’s (07.02.20) show to see Callum explain himself to Shaughna, as the recoupling ended on a dramatic cliffhanger before the 23-year-old scaffolder could give his side of the story.
There was more heartbreak for the girls too, as Demi Jones chose to stick with her partner Nas Majeed, only to find he had recoupled with Eva Zapico.
Strong couples Paige Turley and Finley Tapp, and Siannise Fudge and Luke Trotman survived the ultimate relationship test by staying loyal to each other and were emotionally reunited.
Whilst previously single Rebecca Gormley chose to couple up with Jordan Waobikeze, and Mike Boateng – who had also been single before Casa Amor – came back with Priscilla Anyabu.
Jess Gale and Luke Mabbott had been in a couple before the Casa Amor split but had already decided they were not a good match, and so they recoupled with Ched Uuzor and Natalia Zoppa respectively.
