Missed Love Island last night? You missed a hell of a lot of drama. 

After a blazing row between Rosie and Adam, Rosie and Zara finally came face to face. Rosie was less than impressed at their actions, how they ignored Rosie and spent the day flirting with each other after their romantic dinner date. 

Zara cried as Rosie warned her of Adam's snakey ways. 

'You’ve just got to give me a chance babe and I’ve got to give you a chance. But you’re the fourth girl in two weeks that he’s tried to crack on with, this isn’t a coincidence it’s a pattern. It’s not your fault, this is what I mean, it’s not your fault. All I wanted was a chat with you, I was waiting for you to come and speak to me.'

Laura and Wes ironed out their issues, but not without a fight. Convinced that he wanted to crack-on with new islander Ellie, Laura was very uncomfortable. 

'I’m not going to hold my breath with Wes. I need him to stand up, be a man, take control of the situation and just make it all better. Because I feel like I did that yesterday. Today really my approach is to just try and be chilled and have fun and be normal and speak to everyone but if Wes doesn’t make an effort with me then we’re probably not really going to go any further.' 

The pair kissed and made up and are on a good path again. 

Alex got some kissing lessons so he could go and woo Ellie. 'I’m sat there, I’m 27 years old, I’m getting pep talked by a load of people I’ve known for two weeks on how to kiss a girl. How embarrassing.'

Alex took Ellie to one side and told her how he felt. 

'I just want to say, I think when it comes to recoupling, if I lay my cards on my chest, I probably would quite like to recouple with you, if you felt the same kind of way.'

The feeling was mutual and the nation rejoiced. 

Things are about to get a shake-up! There's a new boy heading into the villa on tonight's episode. 

Get ready to meet Sam Bird, aka 'The Bird' - he's a personal trainer who claims girls often tell him he's 'too pretty.'

Love Island continues on 3e tonight at 9pm.
