Love Island SPOILER: ‘We’re speaking up now!’ Gemma comes to blows with Ekin-Su as the girls accuse her of game-playing… while the other islanders watch the drama unfold
As Ekin-Su is accused of ‘being a game-player’ by Amber Beckford, Gemma agrees with her and declares the girls are ‘speaking up now’.
The argument appears to come to blows, as the other girls sit and watch the drama unfold.
Drama: Monday’s Love Island shows Gemma Owen, 19, coming to blows with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, 27, as the girls accuse her of game-playing
In the preview for Monday’s episode, Amber accuses Ekin-Su of game-playing, to which the latter responds: ‘You’re trying to create s**t right now, it’s *p**sing me off now’.
Gunning for Amber, the actress continued: ‘Yeah, cause you’re really secure in your relationship. You’re attacking my personality saying I’m playing so of course I’m gonna say something back to you.’
Gemma chimes in to defend Amber, quipping: ‘It’s unfair to just blame it completely on Amber because I think some of the other girls have seen a little bit of a difference as well.’
Going off: As Ekin-Su is accused of ‘being a game-player’ by Amber Beckford, Gemma agrees with her and declares the girls are ‘speaking up now’
Game playing? In the preview for Monday’s episode, Amber accuses Ekin-Su of game-playing, to which the latter responds: ‘You’re trying to create s**t right not, it’s *p**sing me off now’
Ekin-Su was unimpressed with Gemma’s comments, asking: ‘Why didn’t you speak up then?’, to which Gemma replied: ‘We’re speaking up now,’ with a stoney-faced look.
The other girls sat in silence as they watched on, with Tasha Ghouri seemingly in agreement with pal Gemma.
It’s not the first time Gemma and Ekin-Su have butted heads, with the pair having a frosty first impression following Ekin-Su’s bombshell arrival.
Gemma explained: ‘It’s unfair to just blame it completely on Amber because I think some of the other girls have seen a little bit of a difference as well’
Not happy: Ekin-Su was unimpressed with Gemma’s comments, asking: ‘Why didn’t you speak up then?’
As Ekin-Su arrived, the two were both gunning for Davide Sanclimenti’s affections, with Gemma labelling Ekin-Su ‘patronising’ following comments she made about being a ‘big sister’.
And it seems it’s not all water under the bridge as tensions run high on Monday’s episode, before it’s topped off by a shock dumping.
It could take things from bad to worse for the islanders, as the public have been voting for their favourite boy and girl in the villa.
The two with the fewest votes are at risk of being dumped from the island in the episode, with the preview showing a worried Ekin-Su admitting she’s scared while heading to the firepit.
Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
