Love Island 2023: All you need to know about episode two


The world has changed since the rapid onset of COVID-19 pushed everyone indoors, sparked fears of social contact and the abrupt cancellation of life as we know it. 

But as we return to some semblance of normality, one thing that remains uniquely preserved is the Love Island format and its tanned, toned, tattooed and toe-curlingly awkward crop of not-so-hopelessly single contestants. 

With the show’s winter edition returning to South Africa‘s glorious Cape Town following a three year absence on Monday evening, all appeared to be well as the first couplings of the series took place. 

And with our current crop of contestants currently showing less chemistry than a secondary school English lesson, a questionable bombshell making an unwelcome arrival and new host Maya Jama already proving to be the hottest girl of the series during episode one – what next for this series? 

Hold on to your phones,  but don’t check your texts. MailOnline is here with a blow-by-blow account of the ITV2 show’s latest eventful instalment. 

Here we go: Love Island is back for a second winter series in South Africa’s glorious Cape Town

TOM CRACKS ON – BUT VIEWERS AREN’T IMPRESSED! 

Love Island fans were left unimpressed by the arrival of new bombshell Tom Clare in the villa. 

The hunky footballer, 23, was a late arrival to the South African abode on Monday, but he’s already ruffled a few feathers by kissing three girls during a dare challenge. 

But tuning into the episode on Tuesday, viewers were left unimpressed by Tom’s presence in the villa, with one remarking: ‘Yeah Tom is boring. All that height for nothing.’

After Maya announced his arrival in the villa during the debut show, there was plenty of anticipation among the islanders about his next move, especially since it was revealed that he’s get to steal one girl from the boys.

And as he got to know the girls, Tom was quick to leave the ladies intrigued, especially as he told them that he was 6ft 5.

However, despite Tom only being in the villa for a short time,  fans at home were less than impressed with the new arrival, with some calling him ‘boring’

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: ‘I’m not really impressed with Tom,’ while another remarked: ‘Yeah Tom is boring. All that height for nothing.’

‘Bombshell isn’t bombshelling’ tweeted a third unimpressed watcher, as a fourth carped: ‘Tom is hardly a bombshell. He’s just shell.’

A fifth commented: ‘As lovely as I’m sure Tom probably is, how the hell is he this year’s bombshell partner stealer pls? The standards are dropping every year I swear.’

With another person tweeting: ‘Kind of bored of Tom already.’

Tom certainly had an eventful start to his Love Island stint as he spent his first day pulling each girl for a chat.

Over at the fire pit Tom asked: ‘How are you guys in your couples?’ to which Tanya replied: ‘Everyone is still getting to know each other.’ 

Tom nodded in agreement as Tanya then asked: ‘How tall are you?’ to which he replies: ‘6’5, I like to be the little spoon though…’ 

Meanwhile, Olivia Hawkins also showed her interest in Tom as she gushed: ‘Oh my god, the height on Tom is very nice. Who doesn’t like a six foot five man?’

Things heated up around the fire pit as the Islanders played a game of dares, with Tom being urged on to lock lips with the women he fancied the most. 

The footballer chose Tanyel, Lana Jenkins and Olivia to share a kiss with and pulled the girls for chats the following day.

‘IS WILL CRYING?’ 

They may have been in the Love Island villa for less than 24 hours but the Islanders have already got to know each other rather intimately.

And during a game of dares, Will Young looked less than impressed as he was forced to watch ring girl Olivia Hawkins snog surprise bombshell Tom Clare on Tuesday.

Tom was urged to kiss the three woman he fancied most when the farmer was caught watching on looking completely heartbroken.

Fans were quick to notice his expression and rushed to Twitter to ask: ‘Why does Will look like he’s about to cry’. 

Another wrote: ‘Will looks like he’s about to cry poor thing’. 

Following the game around the fire pit, Tom said in the Beach Hut: ‘After that first night, I snogged three unreal girls so yeah, can’t go to wrong with that.’ 

Will and Olivia were coupled up after she was ditched by the popular hunk Kai Fagan, during the launch show.

The pair left fans cringing as they shared a toe-curling hug after being coupled up failing to convince viewers that they were a legitimate match, with many insisting that they had zero chemistry.

It seemed Olivia wasn’t too impressed with Will from the start as her head was already turned for Haris Namani, 21. 

The ring girl admitted to already ‘frienzoning’ Will and that the farmer is just ‘not my type’. 

Dancing Queen: Love Island viewers rushed to Twitter during Tuesday’s episode to slam Will Young’s less than impressive dance moves

SIT DOWN WILL! THE FARMER’S NIGHT GOES FROM BAD TO WORSE – COURTESY OF SOME CRIMINAL DANCING

Love Island viewers rushed to Twitter during Tuesday’s episode to slam Will Young’s less than impressive dancing. 

The farmer popped a few impromptu moves as the singeltons played a wild game of dares around the fire pit.

While some fans described the dancing as ‘criminal’ others compared him to The Office’s David Brent. 

The game saw some islanders mimics orgasms and kissing, while Will found himself bogeying in front of the other hopefuls.

Following some awkward wigging and bum shaking, taking to Twitter one viewer wrote: ‘What’s this man doing! It’s not dancing I’ll tell you that’. 

Another shared a GIF of Ricky Gervais’ iconic dance from the 2001 BBC Sitcom declaring: ‘[This is] Will Dancing’.

A third wrote:  ‘Someone tell Will to sit down and stop dancing’ and a fourth joked: ‘Will is dancing like a worm’. 

‘Will please stop dancing’ another viewer pleaded with another joking’ that dance was criminal’.

However other viewers loved what they saw calling his moves those of a ‘free spirit’.
