Stop everything, there is a recoupling!
Already the newbies have started to make sartorial statements, from Nathalia Campos’ cut-out maxi dress to Lacey Edwards’ bright green bikini, they mean business!
What do both these looks have in common? Other than being hella stylish, they are both by online retailer PrettyLittleThing.

Ekin-Su and Nathalia’s feud continues as they battle for Davide’s affection – in the kitchen.
In an explosive teaser clip, the Turkish actress confronted the bombshell and asked her ‘do you have an issue with me?’, causing new bombshell to retaliate ‘Maybe you have an issue with yourself!’
Now the girls are set to settle things with a pancake cooking competition – Davide being the judge.

Ekin-Su tells Nathalia: ‘Do you know what I’ve learnt my love, the best way to end an argument is cooking, so you can prove to me with your pancakes my love, to see how good you are.’
Nathalia responds: ‘I don’t need to prove anything babe, honestly who are you for me to prove anything?’
Ekin-Su answers: ‘I am Ekin-Su babe and there’s only one of me.’
Nathalia questions again: ‘Who is that to me? Who is that to me though, Ekin-who..?’

The conversation ends with Luca announcing to the Villa: ‘It ends in the kitchen, tomorrow morning, be there, Turkey Vs Brazil’ with Nathalia laughing as she says: ‘The battle of the pancakes.’
In the morning, the two women walk-in for their cook-off, arriving with their fellow Islanders as bodyguards, trainers and fans.
It comes after the Brazilian beauty initially expressed interest in Ekin-Su’s partner Davide Sanclimenti, despite her picking Adam Collard for her first date.
She previously remarked that she had ‘her eye’ on Davide upon entering the villa, while she also mocked Ekin-Su’s infamous crawling moment with Jay Younger during a tour with the Italian hunk.
Nathalia tells Ekin-Su: ‘I don’t need to prove anything babe, honestly who are you for me to prove anything?’
Showdown: The end of Thursday night’s Love Island saw Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu come to blows with newcomer Nathalia Campos in an explosive preview for the following episode
The islanders are then left shocked as Paige receives a text informing them that tonight there will be a recoupling in which the girls will choose which boy they want to couple up with.
