Earlier in the episode, the pair enjoyed a sultry group challenge to get the Islanders in the mood.
The boys took on a car-themed challenge, Men-Chanics, as they carried their partners whilst jumping through oily tyres and being sprayed with water by the other boys.
Wearing tight, sparkly briefs the boys then headed to the carwash to perform a sexy dance for their partner sitting in the front seat.

Having completed the day’s challenge the Islanders were awarded a Shimmer and Shine party in partnership with eBay.
Decked out in their pre-loved finest, the Islanders headed to the party with no clue it was set to be gatecrashed by two new bombshells – investment analyst Jay Younger, 28, from Edinburgh and model Remi Lambert, 22, from Manchester.
Their arrival got Ekin-Su Cülcüloglu’s pulse racing as she said of new boy Jay: ‘I think I am going to pass out.. he’s so cute, I am going to pass out, I really like him, I am getting to know him.’

The arrival of the new boys was no doubt a welcome distraction for Gemma Owen and Luca Bisha, who suffered a tense moment shortly before.
With the Islanders bereft at Afia Tonkmore becoming the first Islander dumped from the villa, Luca had attempted to console Gemma with a hug.
Yet when the couple embraced, Gemma accidentally suffered a slip of the tongue and called Luca by ex Jacques O’Neill’s name.

Having just coupled up with Jacques, Paige Thorne noted: ‘Easy mistake to make, hun.’
Not long after Luca left the kitchen, Gemma lamented to her fellow Islanders: ‘That was bad wasn’t it?’
Paige answered: ‘That was bad, I am not gonna lie, he was stood there, you had your guy rubbing your shoulders, he’s stood there and you’re like… “Oh Jacques.”‘

It come after Monday’s episode saw the first dumping of the series, with lounge host Afia, 25, given her marching orders from the villa.
In a post-exit chat, Afia said: ‘Obviously I’m going to miss everyone in the Villa but I’m going to keep trying to find love. I’m sure Mr Right is out there somewhere.
‘There was so much adrenaline going in – it was just so exciting when we both walked in. I really loved walking in with Ekin-Su.
‘ Initially I was attracted to Dami but then throughout the experience it was more Ikenna. I did get the vibe that things were going well for Indiyah and Ikenna quite quickly.’
The star added as to who she thought could go the distance and win the show, saying: ‘Luca and Gemma. And Amber and Dami. It’s such early days but those two felt like the most solid couples.’
