New Love Island bombshells Casey and Jordan threaten to ruffle feathers in the villa as they take Lana and Tanyel on dates
Love Island welcomed two new hunky bombshells, Casey O’Gorman and Jordan Odofin, during Wednesday evening’s episode.
And shaking things up in the South African villa from the get-go, the new arrivals were given the opportunity to speed date girls of their choice.
Jordan decided to take out Tanyel Revan for the romantic vineyard outing, while Casey headed out alongside Lana Jenkins.
And the choices appear to already be ruffling some feathers among the islanders, with Ron Hall left worrying for his connection with Lana.
The two dates came at the perfect time for Tanyel, who called off things with Kai Fagan just days before, as Lana also pressed pause on her relationship with Ron.

Getting closer? Casey got to know blonde beauty Lana better as they headed for a romantic vineyard speed date
Upon picking Lana and Tanyel for their dates, Jordan and Casey joined the two beauties for a gorgeous vineyard date.
The two couples sat on hay bales in the rural setting as they got to know one another better.
And already exchanging flirty conversation, new boy Casey appeared to have eyes for Lana, as the blonde beauty asked whether she was his type.
The Recruitment Consultant confirmed that she was, admitting that he preferred blonde hair over brunette.
It may not be difficult to sway her head either, after she cooled things off with current romantic interest Ron, who proved to have a wandering eye.
During the recoupling the evening before, Aaron Waters was first up to choose and decided to couple up with Lana.
Kai then decided to couple up with new girl Samie Elishi after he and Tanyel called time on their budding romance a day prior.
This left Ron, who had been getting to know both Samie and Lana, left to form a friendship couple with close pal Tanyel – despite no romantic relationship between the pair.

Then came Casey and Jordan’s arrival, giving them the perfect opportunity to make their impression on the available girls.
Ahead of entering the villa, Casey, from Tring, said: ‘I feel like now is the time to settle down and find a girlfriend. I’ve always said I want to be married with kids by the time I’m 30. I’m 26, so we are getting there!’
And he plans on being the ‘cheekiest boy in the villa’ which is no mean feat.

He said: ‘I can definitely see myself kissing a lot of the girls in there! So I guess, lots of entertainment and lots of drama!’
New boy Jordan is also something of a cheeky chappy and can’t wait to find his wifey for lifey.
He said: ‘I’m looking to find a genuine connection with someone.
‘Firstly, I’ve been busy and focused on my career and there’ve been lots of distractions with dating apps and meeting people on nights out. It feels like the right time for me to settle down.’
