After a couple of dodgy days since Sunday's recoupling, she opted to spend the night outside on the beds with Chloe rather than share a bed with Sam.
“Is it really bad that I won’t sleep with him? I just don’t want to have to feel like it has to move fast. I don’t want to feel like I’m being rushed. I was just like ‘go away’," Montana said.
Montana then admitted she was uncomfortable with Sam’s tactile nature: “It feels like there’s more pressure on it when we get into bed because everyone else is doing stuff, do you know what I mean? Yesterday we’re kissing and it’s fine, and his hands are going everywhere and it’s way too much.
"I feel like I need to (say that to him) but I feel like it’s really hard for him because everyone around is moving at 100 miles an hour, people are having sex, people are doing bits, so I get it. He’s literally got not a bad bone in his body; I feel guilty because I’m like ‘why don’t I like you?”
But for Sam, there was no hint of any problems between him and Montana: “We both know at the end of the day Chloe wanted to sleep outside last night because she’s not happy with Chris, Mon’s going to sleep with her. No problems whatsoever. Me and Montana are on the same tracks as always.”
The next morning, Montana decided it was time to speak to Sam about her doubts: "I wanted to have a chat with you. I stayed out last night because I get really anxious that things will progress too quickly. In the outside, I always take things ridiculously slowly. I haven’t slept with that many people etc etc. And I just want to make sure that we don’t rush into anything.”
When Montana then stressed she didn’t want Sam to “go overboard”, he teased: “No I won’t, not straightaway.”
This did nothing to reassure Montana, who told the Beach Hut: “Sometimes, I feel like he doesn’t really listen to what I’m saying.”
Sure enough it appeared Montana’s words hadn’t had quite the desired effect on Sam, who continued to gush about her in the Beach Hut “We’re both taking it slow and it’s nice and relaxed and that’s why it’s going so good at the minute. It just proves that I’ve made the right decision in picking Montana to couple up with.”
