All eyes are on Georgia Steel and Sam Bird in tonight’s Love Island recoupling.
Having made the difficult decision to split at the Beach Club on Monday, tonight Sam and Georgi face the consequences of their actions, when news of another recoupling hits the villa.
With both struggling to move on from one another and pursue new relationships, can they really put the brakes on their romance for good?
Having reluctantly persisted in getting to know Stephanie and new boy Josh respectively, Sam and Georgia’s worst fears are confirmed when a text arrives declaring the inevitable.
It reads: “Islanders, tonight there will be a recoupling. Georgia and Sam will pick first. The remaining boys will then choose who they want to couple up with #freshstart #bagabae”
Sharing a candid moment together, Georgia admits she’s finding it hard to detach herself from Sam: “Basically I can’t go in a bed with Josh. I’d be lying in bed thinking ‘I hope Sam’s lying in bed thinking of me.’ I wouldn’t know if you are. I really, really like you.”
Elaborating further in the Beach Hut, Georgia reveals: “It’s really hard knowing that Sam will be sharing a bed with another girl. I really didn’t think it would be like this. It’s the hardest test I’ve ever gone through, ever in my life.”
As he continues to struggle to put his feelings for Georgia to one side, Sam admits: “I don’t think Georgia’s fully understood what is about to happen. This is the recoupling. It’s all well and good splitting up and being single and talking to other people but if the people we’ve been talking to is nothing like what we had, then what are we doing?”
Talking in the Beach Hut, Georgia prepares for the gut wrenching decision she is about to face: “I’m really nervous for recoupling. It’s the first recoupling that I haven’t felt excitement. The boy I want to pick, I can’t pick. Awful.”
Can Sam and Georgia put their feelings for each other to one side?
Love Island 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
