Love Island: Explosive row erupts between Shaq and Haris after beer pong kiss

Love Island exploded into a dramatic row between Shaq Muhammad and Haris Namani on Thursday night’s episode following a provocative game of beer pong.

During the challenge, contestants answered racy questions while playing the drinking game.

David Salako, who arrived as a bombshell this week with Zara Lackenby-Brown, was challenged to kiss the woman he fancied the most in the villa, which was Tanya Manhenga, Shaq’s current partner.

Following the game, the boys gathered in the garden where Haris, 21, commented on David’s kiss with Tanya.

This didn’t go down well with Shaq, who said “what’s wrong with you bro?", before dubbing Haris a “s*** stirrer”.

The airport security officer added: "You’re so annoying bro. You do this all the time.”

Haris then told Shaq “shut the f*** up”, to which he responded: “You shut the f*** up, you f**ing pr***”.

Haris demanded Shaq not to speak to him like that, as Shaq uttered: “I’ll speak to you however I want!”

The pair proceeded to stand up and shout at each other, leading other contestants to step and try and calm the situation.

The female contestants were shocked as they watched on from the villa’s balcony, while viewers lapped up the drama on social media.

One person wrote: “Haris knew he was wrong for that.

“Showed he has no respect for Shaq. And low-key Tanya is mugging Shaq off. I won’t blame him if he starts exploring his options.”

Another said: “So Haris purposely asked a question that would trigger Shaq and he also told Shaq to shut the f up first.”

The tense argument came after Tanya, 22, confessed that she wasn’t impressed by David’s kissing skills, following the beer pong challenge.

The Islander appeared to enjoy getting to know the rest of the boys, aside from admirers David and Shaq, in the drinking game, as she surprisingly chose to kiss three Tom, Ron and Kai.

Will Young is the only single left in the villa currenrtly, and is at risk of being the first dumped from the villa.

Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 at 9pm.
