‘You don’t have the balls to come and tell me’: Love Island’s Davide struggles to hide his fury after Luca makes a surprising move on Gemma
But Davide Sanclimenti, 27, was left fuming on Thursday evening as fellow islander Luca Bish, 23, pulled Gemma for a chat to make his move on the beauty.
Less than impressed, Davide told the boys that his problem wasn’t that Luca was interested in Gemma, but that he ‘didn’t have the balls to come and tell me’.
Not happy: Love Island’s Davide Sanclimenti, 27, was left furious in Thursday’s show after Luca attempted to make his surprising move on Gemma Owen, 19
The dramatic episode saw bombshells Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Afia Tonkmor make their entrance, but unexpectedly ended with even more drama as Luca admitted he wanted to get to know Gemma.
Inviting the dressage champion up to the terrace for a chat, Luca revealed his attraction to her and suggested getting to know each other better.
While Gemma said she felt the same, sharing that she felt he would ‘get along with my family’ the best out of all the boys in the villa.

Furious: The conversation left Davide riled up, saying: ‘He think’s i’m stupid’ as he fumed over Luca’s lack of honesty
Taking the flirting up a notch, Luca cheekily admitted ‘If I could swap beds tonight, I would’, despite being in a couple with Paige Thorne.
The pair ended the conversation with Luca revealing he wanted to kiss Gemma, and the brunette replying ‘not yet’.
But it wasn’t over there, as the conversation left Davide riled up, saying: ‘He think’s I’m stupid’ as he fumed over Luca’s lack of honesty.
Confidents: Chatting to Ikenna Ekwonna, Andrew Le Page and Dami Hope, Davide explained: ‘I’ve not got a problem with the fact that Luca wants to know Gemma, but with the fact he hasn’t got the balls to tell me’
Heads turning? The surprise backtrack comes just a day after Gemma and Davide’s first date, where they discussed marriage and children
Chatting to Ikenna Ekwonna, Andrew Le Page and Dami Hope, Davide explained: ‘I’ve not got a problem with the fact that Luca wants to know Gemma, but with the fact he hasn’t got the balls to tell me’.
Agreeing, Ikenna chimed in: ‘Respectfully, you’re speaking facts’, while Dami added: ‘I thought you’d already know to be honest’.
Quipping back, Davide replied: ‘I know because I suspect and because I have emotional intelligence and I know things before they happen’.
While Ikenna giggled and went to fist-bump Davide, the Italian hunk remained stoney-faced, adding: ‘He thinks i’m stupid, I was born ages before him’.
Bombshells: The dramatic episode saw bombshells Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Afia Tonkmor make their entrance, as Ekin-Su had her sights set on Davide
The surprise backtrack comes just a day after Gemma and Davide’s first date, where they discussed marriage and children.
While Luca has been going strong with Paige, telling the Swansea native that she was ‘the top of my list’ earlier on in the episode.
But with the arrival of two new bombshells in Afia and Ekin-Su, and the latter’s sights set on Davide, it seems to have left Gemma running into the open arms of Luca.
Love Island continues on Friday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV hub.
