Trouble at mill! Love Island’s Olivia Hawkins and Zara Lackenby-Brown are set to engage in a war of words during Sunday night’s episode as their feud reaches boiling point
In scenes set to air on Sunday night, Olivia interrupts a chat between Zara and Tom and asks to speak to her alone to discuss the rumbling tension.
Getting straight to the heart of the matter, Olivia says: ‘I feel tension. I feel like you’ve come in here and come for me a bit.’
Olivia then says that Zara’s comment during her recoupling speech that Tom had ‘made his feelings clear’ had not been missed by her.
Zara hits back: ‘He’s made it quite clear, he’s quite affectionate from the get go, you can be a classy lady but some people take that as you’re not interested, he’s taken that as you’re not interested.’
Ouch: Zara immediately ruffled Olivia’s feathers following her arrival in the villa after branding her the ‘most two-faced’ during a game of beer pong
But Olivia snaps: ‘I think that’s personal between me and him and I don’t really think that’s your business.
David Salako was the first Love Islander to leave the villa after the first recoupling of the series when he failed to be picked by anyone.
The 24-year-old bombshell had been cracking on with Tanya Manhenga since entering, but the episode saw her choose Shaq Muhammad.

On Friday it was revealed Zara and Olivia knew each other before entering the villa and have accused them of working together to ‘play up to the cameras.’
They are both performers working within the dance, acting and modelling industry and have been liking and commenting on each other’s Instagrams for three years.
As Islanders have to keep their social media profiles dormant when in the villa, the interactions will have taken place before their identities were released to the public.

Taking to Twitter, shocked fans penned: ‘Zara and Olivia proper playing up to the cameras. Bringing the drama 4 days in yet they big each other up on the outside world on there insta pictures… odd. Aren’t they both actress?! #LoveIsland’;
‘why are zara and olivia pretending they don’t know eachother? this might explain why olivia seemed overly offended at zara calling her two faced #LoveIsland’; ‘Word on the street is Olivia and Zara has known each other for 3 years and their beef on the show is production. #LoveIsland’;
‘WHAT? Olivia and Zara knew eachother before love island’; ‘Wait they didn’t show that Olivia and Zara know eachother tho ???’; ‘Oooo so a situation happened outside the villa or olivia must of acted like she didnt know her when zara came in… ok ok.’
A source told MailOnline: ‘They’ve crossed paths socially but that’s the extent of it.’
Evidence: The pair are both performers working within the dance, acting and modelling industry and have been liking and commenting on each other’s Instagram posts for three years
News of their relationship comes after Zara caused friction when she was dared to kiss both the cheeks of the Islander she thinks is the most two-faced during a wild game of beer pong.
Tensions began to rise as she approached a less than impressed Olivia causing the boys watching on to burst into screams and laughter.
Ring girl Olivia was left visibly fuming before taking to the beach hut to say the model completely ‘humiliated’ her in front of everyone.

She said: ‘I feel like she’s using me in her game. I feel like she wanted to humiliate me.’
Continuing with the jaw dropping game, the drama continued as Olivia was told to ‘reveal a secret to the other Islanders’.
She hit back at the new bombshell and said: ‘Oh I’ve got a good one, I’m actually not two-faced I’m very straight up.’
Following the game, the ring girl walked off to speak to the other girls on the terrace as she tried to calm down.
‘I’m defiantly not the one being bitchy. I don’t want to say anything to her right now. I don’t want to make a thing of it,’ Olivia said.

The two islanders had to be held apart by the other boys as they almost came to blows in a tense stand-off as they boys had a debrief about the earlier challenge.
The drama kicked off as Haris commented on new bombshell David’s steamy kiss with Shaq’s partner Tanya, causing Shaq to brand the TV salesman a ‘sh*t stirrer’.
