Love Island 2023 returned on Monday with the contestants now settled into their couples. However, new relationships will be put to the test further in tonight’s episode as contestants get cosier, and new bombshells pick two islanders for a date.

Newly single Will kicks off the following morning by grabbing Lana for a chat on the beanbags. Fresh from the re-coupling at the fire pit, Will heads over to Tom and says of his new coupling with Olivia: “Honestly, you are well better suited.”

Will laughs and jokes as he says: “It just means that I’ve got to graft a little harder now.” Later in the Beach Hut Will says: “[I’ve] got to do a lot of grafting, do a lot of talking and try to take in as much as possible.”

Will’s interest will no doubt raise a few eyebrows, and potentially ruffle Ron’s feather’s who is currently coupled up with Lana. Fans will be eager to know how Lana will react to Will pulling her up for a chat.

As well as that it seems that Tanya and Shaq will get even cosier as they were spotted talking by the firepit. Shaq is expected to open up to Tanya with an exclusive teaser revealing he tells Tanya “I just want to keep you close…”. This could be the start of one of the strongest couples of the series.

That’s not all, Haris is keen to know where he stands with Olivia and pulls her up for a chat now that she is officially coupled up with bombshell Tom. In an exclusive reveal Haris says: “Out of every girl in here, you are the one that I’m most sexually attracted to, you’re a very good looking girl.”

Olivia tells Haris: “Looks wise I feel like he’s [Tom] growing on me but you’re more my type, I’m more physically attracted to you… And then personality, the thing that gets me so stuck is the fact that you’re both so different and I just need to decide what I want from a guy…”. All eyes will be on this love triangle as the show progresses, and Tom gets his chance to compete for Olivia’s attention.

All may seem calm as the islanders get to know each other, however, that won’t last long. In what is set to be the most surprising part of the episode, not one but two islanders receive texts inviting them out on dates with new bombshells Zara and David.

It’s time to find out how the first two dates switch up the dynamics in the Villa, as one Islander admits: “I think having the two new bombshells will definitely mix things up, it will get people sweating a bit.” Another says: “I’m absolutely buzzing a new girl is coming in!”

Tune in tonight to keep up with all the drama and see how the events unfold.
