Oh Ekin-Su, where would we be without you? Charlie said he loved a firecracker, and Love Island's gift that keeps on giving got up to her old tricks again last night, meddling both at home and away. Keep reading to find out how to watch Love Island 2022 online from anywhere, with new episodes airing every day of the week. 

Gemma and Luca were all swept up into the Ekin-Su vortex, but was any of it really her fault, or was it all actually Dami's dastardly plan? It was definitely Ekin-Su, who's suddenly all eyes for the Italian Stallion again, and determined to reshuffle the pack again.

Elsewhere, Paige made it clear to Jay that nothing's ever going to happen between them... as has been pretty clear to everyone from the moment he tried to split her up from Jacques, Tasha shut down the Charlie rumors and reaffirmed her commitment to Andrew, and Luca gave Gemma her marching orders. Just kidding, he's still wrapped around her finger.
