The nation breathes HUGE sigh of relief after latest Love Island recoupling

Viewers were incredibly nervous

| Updated:

Love Island fans were on the edge of their sofas last night, as the group had to recouple.

Olivia Attwood struggled throughout the episode as she tried to work out whether she should go for blue-eyed beau Chris Hughes, or go for hunky Mike Thalassitis.

Hard life, right?

Chris had heard that Liv was planning on choosing Mike, so took that as the perfect opportunity to confess his undying love for the model.

He told her he loves her!

The Gloucestershire-born Islander then said he believed in a future where they could continue their relationship outside of the show. Aw.

During Friday’s show, leggy blonde Liv had been flirting with Muggy Mike and viewers feared she would choose to give it a go during the recoupling.

Well, and the fact that she told Sam Gowland that she would pick him too. NOT cool, Liv.

After a very well thought-out speech, Olivia seemed to relieve the Islanders, and the entire nation while Mike paired up with Tyla Carr, and Liv and Chris got back together.

Twitter users were so “nervous”, and could barely watch as Olivia made her decision.

It meant GB athlete Theo Campbell has become the latest to be dumped from the villa, after the shock recoupling saw him left all on his lonesome.

After getting the boot, Campbell insisted that he was not playing a game and that he was only speaking his mind in order to be the “voice of the villa”.

However, while some celebrated Hughes remaining in the programme, others wanted him to hit back at his partner for flirting with the idea of matching with Thalassitis.

“Still don’t like liv but am glad my boy Chris is safe. Phew, now he needs to mugg [sic] her off…”, said one.

Another very torn fan wrote: “I’m happy… but then I’m not….. Chris deserved someone who doesn’t even have to think about being with him”.

We wonder what the next show will bring – it keeps getting better and better!

It will also be very interesting to see how Jonny Mitchell and Theo Campbell get on during the next After Sun, because they did NOT like each other.

Tune in on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2.
