In tonight's show, Tyla and her fellow newbie Simon are immediately plunged into the deep end, with their arrival in the villa sparking a surprise recoupling, and putting the two new arrivals in control.
Yesterday in the villa, in scenes to be shown in tonight's show, a text arrived placing all the power in Tyla and Simon’s hands: “Islanders, tonight there will be a recoupling in which Tyla and Simon will pick first. They cannot couple up with one another. Tyla, Simon and whichever two Islanders they couple up with will be safe at the next dumping. #freepass.”
The pressure of having first choice was already getting to an anxious Tyla, who told the Beach Hut: “Tonight I have all the power and I’m not going to lie, my heart is pounding out of my chest, I feel like you can see it.”
Inevitable drama was to follow when Tyla revealed her two primary targets – Jonny and Chris: “I quite like Jonny, he’s a very good looking guy. Most of the guys in here are very good looking. Jonny said he went on a date with Camilla yesterday and that it went really well, but he didn’t say much else. I should probe him, get it out!”
Tyla was also upfront with Olivia about her affection towards Chris: “I’d probably say Chris, but do you know why I’d say that? Chris is good looking. I hope you wouldn’t mind, but I just don’t know anyone else I could pick.”
Chatting to Gabby and Montana in the garden, Tyla set about getting to the bottom of Jonny’s attachment to Camilla, and whether there was any way of coming between them.
Gabby insisted Tyla couldn’t let any guilty feelings stand in the way of finding the right guy: “We don’t want anyone to be upset in here about anything, but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.”
But, asserting her loyalty to Camilla, Montana was determined to sideline Tyla’s quest of Jonny, telling the Beach Hut: "I’m going to ward her off Jonny. That’s my task for today. I’m going to be like ‘Camilla and Jonny are really cute, Jonny’s my main guy, Jonny and Camilla are going to be perfect together and they’re going to get married, so mitts off.’
Later, Tyla was then given the opportunity to date three of the island boys, before she made her big decision.
After the dates, Tyla got tearful with Amber in the bedroom ahead of her decision: “I just feel bad because I don’t know who I’m going to pick. I just feel like if I pick someone I like, I’m going to upset someone, 100%. The thought of that makes me feel physically sick.”
Amber urged her to forget about the other islanders, and focus on herself: “Just breath, and what you need to remember is you’re here for yourself, you’re not here for anybody else.”
Is Tyla about to cause an almighty upset or will she play it safe?
