Love Island couple Shaq Muhammad and Tanya Manhenga’s budding romance appeared to hit the rocks on Thursday after Tanya won the kissing challenge.
And in a spoiler for Friday’s show, Shaq finally confronts his girl about her behaviour.
‘I get it’s a game but I felt like you thought winning the challenge was more important than respecting me,’ he tells her.
He was shocked at how involved she was in the kissing game, despite the pair exchanging the words ‘I love you’ in a recent episode.
Tanya then probes Shaq about why he was feeling so upset about the kissing challenge.

‘I just want to understand where this is coming from, because I don’t understand, you’re all mine and I’m all yours. I only want you, I don’t care about anyone else,’ she says.
‘I understand why you felt the way you did but it was not my intention to make you feel that way, I’m sorry for not understanding you earlier, I get it now,’ she claimed.
‘Are we on the same page?’ he then asks her.
‘We are, I’m just stubborn… so it takes a minute,’ she replies.
Tanya previously admitted that his furious reaction to her behaviour in the kissing challenge ‘gave her the ick’.
In scenes that aired on Thursday night, Shaq was furious when he learned Tanya had won the villa kissing challenge, after earning the highest scores from the boys with her passionate smooches.
He quickly accused her of being ‘disrespectful’ with her steamy displays of affection, which didn’t go down well with Tanya and other girls in the villa.
In the episode, each of the girls were tasked with kissing the blindfolded boys, each earning a score out of 10.

While Tanya earned a perfect score from her man Shaq, her kissing skills were also praised by Ron Hall and Kai Fagan, who each gave her nine points.
It was then revealed that Tanya earned the highest score in the challenge, leaving Shaq noticeably unimpressed.
He asked Ron: ‘Am I overreacting?’
And as word reached the girls, and Tanya, that Shaq was annoyed, she said: ‘If there’s one thing that will give me the ick, it’s this. It’s not that deep. That’s so petty’.
‘I just want to understand where this is coming from, because I don’t understand, you’re all mine and I’m all yours. I only want you, I don’t care about anyone else,’ she says in a teaser
She went onto add in the Beach Hut: ‘I would think that a guy would impressed that his girl won the challenge, and everyone gets a taste of what he gets everyday, every minute in bed, but instead, it’s the other way round.’
Shaq then told Ron: ‘There’s a way to go about it and be respectful, she ain’t respectful. I ain’t chatting to her.’
He went onto tell Tom Clare: ‘I’m not speaking to her!’ while the boys suggested that he should ‘take some space’.
‘If she every comes to me and tries to say, it’s a challenge, I’ll just walk away from her,’ he added, with the episode ending on a cliffhanger.
Love Island airs tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
