Love Island recap: Amber breaks down as Maura gets pulses racing

Love Island delivered one of the highlights of the series as the girls and boys took part in a challenge to turn each other on.

Dressing up in revealing outfits, the islanders had to dance for their partners – with everyone else watching on.

But when the islanders were told who made their pulse race the most, the results ruffled a few feathers as there’s clearly unfinished business between a few islanders.

The villa is down five people after the exits over the last couple of days, with Jourdan Riane, Danny Williams, Lucie Donlan and George Rains being dumped after a public vote.

Amy Hart also decided to quit as she felt she had got all she could out of the experience.

So it was time for some new blood, and newcomers Francesca Allen and Chris Taylor made their entrance into the villa by taking current contestants on a date.

Things got awkward for Maura as she went on a picnic with Chris, as Curtis – who she has been trying to crack on with – laughed away on his date with Francesca nearby.

Let’s take a look at what happened last night.

Maura Higgins goes on an awkward date with Chris Taylor

Chris decided to take Maura on a date while Francesca chose Curtis, and to make things really awkward, the two pairings weren’t sat that far away from each other as they enjoyed romantic picnics.

Maura appeared to be squirming through her picnic as she couldn’t help but wonder what Curtis and Francesca were so happy about.

She admitted beforehand in the Beach Hut that most of her concentration would be on her love interest.

Maura said: ‘The poor lad [Chris] is going to be talking to me and I’m just going to be earwigging. I want to hear the way Curtis is behaving.’

Chris told Maura that she has a ‘cracking personality’, but will her head be turned from Curtis? We’re hoping not, weirdly.

Amber Gill admits she still has feelings for Michael Griffiths

Amber had an emotional moment with the girls as she broke down in tears over her feelings for Michael.

When she was asked by Maura and Anna Vakili what she thinks of Chris, she admits: ‘I can’t switch off my feelings. I still like Michael.

‘Chris is lovely and he’s got tattoos and he’s tall but I just had something with Michael.’

In the Beach Hut she said: ‘Having a new boy enter the villa tonight has made me realise that I still have feelings for Michael.’

Michael appeared to express no sympathy for her as both he and Joanna seemed to hear Amber crying and didn’t react.

The fun challenge saw Amber slip into a purple corset and try to get Michael’s pulse racing.

And she succeeded, as his heart rate was raised the most by his former flame, while his current partner Joanna didn’t manage to get him hot under the collar.

Viewers called him out on it, especially as he had previously been so cold to Amber when they broke up.

Maura makes Curtis’ day

Maura put on a show during the challenge last night as she gave Curtis a lapdance to get his heart racing.

Dressed in a fishnet bodysuit and cat ears, she strode up to the professional dancer and straddled him before they shared a kiss.

And Curtis returned the favour, using his performance as an opportunity to steal a kiss from Maura.

They’re a weird coupling but we hope they work out.

Love Island airs daily at 9pm on ITV2.
