Georgia Steel and Sam Bird have split up in order to stay on Love Island 2018 in tonight’s results
Fresh from Ellie and Charlie’s exits in Sunday night’s show, host Caroline Flack tonight dropped a new bombshell on the Islanders.
After they found themselves in the bottom three couples after the public vote, Georgia & Sam and Megan & Wes were told: “You are not quite safe yet. Your fate now lies in the hands of your fellow Islanders. Islanders you now have the power to save one couple. Georgia and Sam. Or Megan and Wes.”
Caroline explained to the rest of the group: “Islanders you must now decide as a group who should remain as a couple in the villa. Who do you think has the potential to go the distance? Who do you believe in as a couple?”
The group decided to save Megan and Wes.
Josh said of the their decision: “We would like to save this couple because, they have had their doubters, both inside and outside of the villa and as a group, we believe that they can go the distance. It wasn’t an easy decision at all, there was serious debate and people put forward very good points, pros and cons for both couples.
“But in the end we have managed to make a decision even though it was a hard one.”
Caroline then reveals to Georgia & Sam: “You haven’t been saved by the public or your fellow Islanders. Therefore, you cannot stay on Love Island as a couple. This doesn’t have to be the end of your Love Island journey. It’s a huge decision, it’s either split up and remain in the villa or stay together and leave.
“Before you make that decision, I can tell you there are two new boys and two new girls waiting to enter the villa today. If you decide to split up and stay on the Island, you will each date two new Islanders and head back to the villa. You will decide who to couple up with on the next recoupling. But you can’t be with each other.
“If you decide to stay as a couple, you will leave immediately without returning to the villa. You can take some time now to talk it out and come back to me with your decision.”
Georgia and Sam were left in tears and given some time to make their decision.
She fumed: “I don’t feel how my fellow Islanders feel me and Sam haven’t been real with each other.”
“I think a lot of people have underestimated us both in the villa and the public and we want to show how strong we really are,” Sam added.
Georgia continued: “At the end of the day, we’re both very loyal human beings and if it’s meant ot be meant. I’ve been bought up not to be a quitter.”
Sam then announced: “Me and Georgia have decided to take this ultimate test and we will be splitting up.”
It was a shock result, with the other islanders surprised by the decision.
Love Island 2018 airs nightly at 9PM on ITV2.
