Wednesday’s drama-packed episode saw the exes sit down for a chat about her relationship with Luca after the arrival of two new boys promised to stir some drama.

As Gemma sat down for a conversation with Jaques outside, she exclaimed: ‘Oh, Luca will be fuming,’ as she caught a glimpse of the fishmonger walking past.
Jaques reasoned: ‘When I talk to you to say how much of a good lad he is and how well you two get on, there’s nothing wrong with it at all.’
But the daughter of footballer Micheal Owen, added: ‘Why are you doing that face then?’

Back in the garden Tasha explained to Luca: ‘You just need to think that there might be times like that but you and Gemma have something special.’
‘I just don’t want to get hurt,’ he replied.

‘My head was a mess mate, I’ve never got back on. I was seeing a girl for a bit but…’
In the beach hut Jaques continued: ‘We were together for a year we’re going to have things to speak about, I know her family very good she knowns mine very good, we just have a general chitchat about life.’
The next morning, both rapper Remi and the other newcomer Jay, received texts that instructed the duo they could each select three girls to prepare a meal for them.

After Luca walked off to the garden, Gemma reflected on her wrong name blunder, as she asked her fellow islanders ‘that was bad wasn’t it?’
The drama began following Afia’s exit, with the islanders gathering in the kitchen where Luca wrapped his arms around the dressage rider.
But as they embraced, Gemma accidentally called Luca Jacques, with the rugby player sitting right beside them.
The other islanders were quick to comment in the error, with Amber asking: ‘Did you just call him something else?’
Uh oh: There is trouble brewing in paradise after Gemma and Luca got into a heated row
