The pair are the oldest and youngest Islanders currently in the villa.
Laura, 29, has already expressed concerns about Wes, 20.
And in this evening's show, Laura is panicked after Wes informs her that he is falling for her.
The following morning, Laura resolves that she needs to speak to Wes about the meaning behind his words, having discussed his declaration with the other girls.
She tells the ladies: “He said to me ‘I think I’m falling for you’ and I was just like ’don’t say that to me’. Don’t sit there and say ‘you’re falling for me.’ You’re not falling for me. It’s been a week! I don’t like it. He doesn’t even know what love is. He’s never been in love before.”
Discussing her apprehension in the Beach Hut, Laura admits: “It’s very nice to hear, but I’m just very aware of people saying things that they don’t mean or it’s very early to be saying something like that.
"I know he didn’t say love but for me it was similar. Maybe a miscommunication. But I really just want to be on the same page. I don’t want him being like ‘oh my god, I’m falling in love with Laura.”
Asking Wes for clarity on his remarks, Wes is quick to defend himself: “I’m just saying, I can see the start of it. If there was going to be a start it would be now. I’ve never felt this after a week so if I was ever going to say the ‘L’ word, this would be the start.”
In the Beach Hut, Wes admits that going forward he only has eyes for Laura.
He explains: “It’s weird, you don’t realise until you’re in here, how fast you can form relationships and feelings and stuff like that so it’s shocked me, and it’s quite scary.
"I’ve not had eyes for anyone in the villa and yes it’s a bit silly because you want to keep your options open in here but I literally have tunnel vision on Laura at the moment and I think ‘yes that leaves me vulnerable’ but I don’t really care.”
Love Island 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
