Love island: Shocking result Hayley and Charlie forced to leave the villa

Friday night's Love Island saw one couple ejected from the villa and, to precisely no one's surprise, that couple happened to be Hayley and Charlie - who despised each other to a level only seen before in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.

That means Alex and Samira were saved by the public vote, which is good news for Samira especially, who hopefully feels like her decision to appear on the show is worth her reportedly getting sued by the West End production she abruptly quit for it.

Dani and Jack's relationship continued to blossom - with the couple now looking like favourites to win the whole show - though change is needed if their love is going to last, apparently, as Dani declared: "I ain't going to be making him ham and cheese croissants every night."

Two new girls will arrive at the villa on Sunday: Ellie, who reassuringly describes herself as "cute but psycho", and Zara, who is appearing on Love Island and is somehow concerned people might think she's shallow. Yes, people might think you're shallow Zara.

The latest episode of Love Island comes rampaging towards us like the stampede of rhinos in Jumanji. Is it inevitable? Yes. Is there anything we can do prepare ourselves? Also yes. Read Tom Peck's recap of last night's episode here:

"While some Love Island couples do work - see last year’s Camilla and Jamie and season two winners Nathan and Cara - the likelihood of long-term success is certainly against the odds, explains behavioural psychologist, Jo Hemmings."

Let's get serious for a moment. What's with the hypocritical mockery of Laura’s relationship with 20-year-old Wes?

Is Love Island fixed? It's conspiracy theory time:

Here we go - it's happening. Two people are leaving tonight. The tension is high. High enough to leave people whispering carefully to each other in various corners of the villa.
