Yet another Islander has waved goodbye to the villa after a jaw-dropping Love Island recoupling ceremony.
The Islanders got the news in Monday’s episode (June 24) that the power would be in the boys’ hands to decide the couples this time. In the end, the one girl left out would be sent home.
With the love triangle drama continuing to rumble on between Yewande Biala, Arabella Chi and Danny Williams, the results of the recoupling were guaranteed to be intense.
Here’s how it ended up:
- Tommy and Molly-Mae
- Curtis and Amy
- Michael and Amber
- Tom and Maura
- Jordan and Anna
- Anton and Lucie
- Danny and Arabella
Danny gave viewers the biggest shock when he dumped Yewande in favour of Arabella. This left Yewande without a coupling partner at the end of the ceremony, meaning she was being dumped from the Island!

Her exit was especially painful since Danny made it look like he’d be choosing Yewande, telling the group of his choice: “I think she’s very intelligent. I think we’ve connected on an intellectual level. I think she’s absolutely stunning. I think she brings something to the villa that nobody else does.
“That hasn’t been an easy decision in the slightest, but the overriding feeling is excitement. I’m confident I made the right decision.”
Viewers ultimately agreed with Amber, who called Danny’s decision “a piss take”:

Following the recoupling ceremony, Danny defended himself in a fairly questionable way by once again implying he wasn’t too fussed about dumping Yewande.
“People have been hurt tonight. People are upset, but you have to make a decision based on yourself, and I think I’ve done that,” he argued.
Yewande ultimately got the last laugh when Danny approached her as she was preparing to leave the villa.
“I hope you enjoy your time in the villa. What comes around goes around,” she warned him. “Have a nice life.”
Caroline Flack previously promised this would be a dramatic week that would test every single couple in the villa — even those who seem rock solid, like Michael and Amber.
“This week is gonna be drama week… Drama for me is just the testing of the relationship, so it is good to see,” she hinted. “That’s the whole point is just testing the relationships.
“So. when I say drama I don’t mean screaming and shouting and arguing and that kind of stuff, it’s the decisions [the Islanders] have to make, I like all that.”
