Tonight's episode of love Island 2017 will be 20 minutes longer than usual.

Show bosses have extended the episode from 9PM-10PM to 9PM-10:20PM to cover a dramatic, surprise coupling.


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.”

The newbies went on three dates with the current Islanders of their choice before making their decision on who to couple up with.


Love Island airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
