Day 8

Last night's episode of Love Island was packed full of 'firsts.'

There were first kisses, first dates and the first important question was asked.

If you missed out, here's a full recap:

Danny is torn between Yewande and Molly-Mae

Danny has made no secret of the fact that he is interested in Yewande.

However, he's also taken a fancy to Molly-Mae, who is currently coupled up with Tommy and is also being pursued by Anton.

In the kitchen Danny speaks with Anton about Molly-Mae.

He says, “Molly is really nice and I think we get on. I think she is a bit confused with how she feels about Tommy.”

Anton wants to make it clear that he is also interested in Molly-Mae, “If you want to crack on then you can crack on, that’s what you’re here for..."

"I wouldn’t be too happy about it. I’m just getting to know her.”

Anton reflects on his dilemma in the Beach Hut, “It’s very much like ‘here we go again’."

"I had a triangle with Tommy, Molly and myself and now with Danny boy, it looks like it’s going to become a square!"

"Can I not just get a straight line in here? That would be lovely!”

Danny speaks to Yewande

Later that morning Danny speaks with Yewande.

“I can see something with me and you. People keep saying to me ‘What do you think of Yewande?’ and I say ‘She’s stunning’."

"I feel like we were both on the same page straight away.”

Yewande says, “I just don’t want to feel like I’m stealing you away from anyone because I know that Molly fancies you.”

Danny says, “I need to have a couple of days to figure everybody out. I don’t think I’ve clicked with anybody as much as I have clicked with you."

"That’s a fact and everyone can see it.”

Anton speaks to Molly-Mae

Later, Anton speaks with Molly-Mae about the situation they all currently find themselves in.

He says, “Your triangle is about to become a square. I think he [Danny] is obviously attracted to you and he finds it easy to talk to you."

"He obviously has Yewande there but he wants to get to know you as well. You need to find who is suited to you and take it from there."

"It’s not a bad situation. I’ve told you before, I wish I was in your situation!”

Molly-Mae says in the Beach Hut, “I don’t know where my head is at all. I’m very confused."

"It’s lovely, I’m not saying it’s a horrible situation to be in but I need to make sure I’m not upsetting anyone but also making the right decision for me.”

Curtis and Tommy's bromance blossoms

In the bedroom, Tommy asks Curtis to give him a back massage and it looks as if ballroom and Latin dancing isn’t his only talent.

As Curtis gives Tommy a massage, he says “I’m not joking Tommy. Deal with it! Breathe through it. In through your nose and out through your mouth.”

Tommy jokingly says, “Curtis, I can’t take no more!”

In the Beach Hut, Tommy reflected on the experience, “Curtis was giving me a massive back rub in the bedroom."

"My ass was a bit tense so I asked him ‘Do you mind massaging the gluteal area and get some knots out my back?’ He’s good at it!"

"My back feels 10/10.”

Michael and Amber's first kiss

Michael has been playing it cool with Amber but he thinks it's a time to tell her how he truly feels.

He tells her, “I am attracted to you. I’m not trying to get to know anybody else."

"I don’t think anybody could walk through that door that makes me nervous like you do.”

Amber asks, “Why? In what way?”

Michael admits, “I want to impress you. I get nervous around you and I don’t do that! Why am I being soft? Obviously because I’m into you!”

“I feel shy,” says Amber.

Michael wants to show Amber he’s interested in her so he goes in for the kiss. This takes Amber by surprise and she starts giggling.

Amber says, “You’re making me feel nervous!”

Amber later reflects in the Beach Hut, “He tried to kiss me and I pied him off a little bit! I wasn’t prepared and I was a bit nervous."

"I’d been drinking cola so my breath wasn’t the nicest thing in the world.”

Amber goes to the girls for advice

Amber has a debrief with Anna and Yewande and tells the girls that she has just pied Michael after he tried to kiss her.

Knowing that Amber likes Michael, Anna asks her why she didn’t kiss him.

Amber says, “My breath. I wanted to be fresh!”

Anna questions, “Why didn’t you prepare?”

Amber replies, “I didn’t think about it. I didn’t think that was going to happen!”

She feels guilty about not kissing Michael. Later that evening the pair chat on the day beds.

Amber says, “Basically, I wasn’t prepared earlier. I’m more prepared now.”

Amber and Michael share their first kiss.

Curtis pops the question

Tommy receives a text which reads: Islanders. The Hideaway is open tonight. Please choose a lucky couple to spend the night alone. #dontbeshy #alonetime.

They immediately decide that Curtis and Amy should be the couple to spend the night in the Hideaway.

Prior to heading to the Hideaway, Amy says in the Beach Hut, “It’s day nine and the sexy PJs are out to go to the Hideaway with Curtis."

"I’m just really excited. I didn’t think it would happen this early.”

Curtis and Amy arrive in the Hideaway and get into the hot tub.

He says, “We’re very close and very good together at the moment and I definitely don’t want to see anyone else."

Curtis continues, "I know that no-one is going to walk through the door and turn my head at all. I’m not asking you to be in a relationship but I just want to lock it off.”

Amy replies, “So, we’re not going to get to know anyone else? I think it’s too soon to do the whole boyfriend and girlfriend thing but we’re 100% exclusive.”

Curtis asks, “Will you be my half-girlfriend?”

Amy laughs, “I will be your half-girlfriend. But we will not call it half-girlfriend! We’ll refer to each other as other-halves until one day we’ll potentially use the ‘B’ and ‘G’ words.”

Curtis tells her, “Just so you know, I am planning on doing that.”

They get into bed and share a kiss before going to sleep.

Lucie and Joe's date

Lucie receives a text: Lucie and Joe. It’s time to make waves as you head out on your first date. #wetandwild #getbreadynow.

Joe and Lucie head out on their date and arrive at a small cove to find a paddle board.

Lucie is thrilled to be back in the water, “Oh my God. This is a dream date.”

Joe is more apprehensive, “I’ve never done paddle-boarding ever!”

After making waves on the water the pair relax and reflect on their time in the villa.

Joe says, “Obviously, we had a bit of a rocky start. But I’m super happy with where we are at.”

Lucie replies, “It’s kind of a good thing that it happened. It showed that we can deal with stuff like that and maybe it’s made us a bit stronger?”

Joe gushes, “I like everything about you. Every morning I wake up and I see you, you get prettier by the day.”

Lucie returns the compliment, “You’re my favourite in the morning. You look so cute."

Tonight's episode will see two new girls enter the villa.
