It was another dramatic night in the Love Island villa with a double dumping AND a bombshell. The latest episode of the ITV2 dating show kicked off on Tuesday night (June 21) with six islanders at risk of having to pack their bags and say their goodbyes.
And it was Ikenna Ekwonna and Amber Beckford who were dumped from the Mallorcan villa after the public voted for their favorite islanders. Following the public’s vote after Sunday’s episode, Amber, Ikenna, Tasha, Andrew, Ekin-Su and Jay were put at risk – but it was Ikenna and Amber who placed at the bottom. After the announcement, the other contestants were emotional as they said their goodbyes.
But things were quickly moving on as Dami made his move on Indiyah. Later the next day, the islanders also took part in a game of truth or dare, which seemed to ruffle some feathers. The game saw Indiyah choose Dami after she was dared to give a lap dance and a kiss to her favorite islander.

While Dami chose Indiyah for who he would most like to spend a night alone with in the hideaway bedroom. The game also caused some commotion when rugby player Jacques said he thought Ekin-Su and Jay were the couple most likely to not work out while his ex-girlfriend of him Gemma and Luca were the most likely to stay together.
That was soon forgotten as the hideaway was opened up for one couple, with the contestants choosing Jacques and Paige to privately spend the night together. Jacques turned to the Welsh paramedic and told her: “Go and get your best underwear on. Away we go!”
But Love Island viewers were quickly distracted by Jacques’ choice of attired for his passionate night away from his fellow islanders. @Lucyaliceee1 tweeted: “Jacques wearing that vest is the BIGGEST ICK I HAVE EVER SEEN #LoveIsland.” @nocturnart101 wrote: “Vest and Boxers?? Uncle Jacques please #LoveIsland.”
@carlegg29 commented: “Paige is looking like a whole snack and Jaq turns up with a grubby white vest and white boxers?? NO. #LoveIsland.” @meemio_ shared: “Ca n’t believe Jacques told Paige to wear her de ella“ sexiest underwear ”, then he walks out in a vest and undies like an 8 year old. Basically looked like he’s wearing a white swimming costume #LoveIsland. “
@Weso3K said: “Jacques took Paige to the hideaway in a vest and pants I’m dead #LoveIsland.” @_cjdetweiler added: “Jacques going to the hideaway in a vest and tighty whities? i would never recover from that ick #LoveIsland.”
And it’s not the first time Jacques have given fans of the show the ‘ick’ after they haven’t had a rather long body part. @LoganMcMorrann tweeted: “I’m sorry but Jacques toe on love island is an instant ick #LoveIsland.” @SarahAlexMac1 wrote: “No one talking about Jacques toes? #loveisland,” alongside a close-up shot of Jacques’ foot in his sliders.”
The Love Island villa is set for another shake-up as the end of the lastest episode also teased that 26-year-old Antigoni Buxton would be entering the villa during Wednesday’s episode.
Ahead of her appearance, the singer-songwriter, who is the daughter of presenter and chef Tonia, said: “I’ve been single for almost a year-and-a-half and for the whole of the last year my goal has been to have as many different experiences as possible. I really just want to say ‘yes’ to things. Why not? It’ll be fun. I’m a Cypriot girl and I love being in the sun. I’ve got nothing to lose.”
