Love Island fans stunned by couple's confession to sex in Hideaway - and predict 'disaster'

Love Island fans saw their jaws drop on Friday evening as one couple confessed to sleeping together in the Hideaway.

The ITV2 reality dating show returned with another explosive episode this week as the winter series gets well underway with new host Maya Jama.

Love Island has seen multiple romances blossom in the past days as the Islanders mark nearly two weeks since they walked into the South African villa.

The start of the Friday night episode saw the Hideaway retreat open for the first time in this series, giving one loved-up pair the chance to have some private time.

The Islanders received a text with the good news, which read: “Islanders, The Hideaway Retreat is open tonight, please choose a lucky couple to spend a luxury night away #NightAwayWithBae.”

The decision was unanimous as the Islanders chose who they wanted to enjoy a romantic retreat, complete with a plunge pool and candle-lit terrace, and all decided on Shaq Muhammad and Tanya Manhenga.

In scenes later in the episode, the pair debriefed with their fellow Islanders and shared what they got up to in the separate villa retreat – and Tanya said “down and dirty,” before adding to co-star Tanyel that “everything” happened.

Love Island viewers were left stunned at home after the previous series in the summer saw not a single couple go all the way until they had left the villa at the end of the show’s run.

However, a number of fans were left fearing the worst for the couple given they still have Casa Amor on the horizon.

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “Tanya and Shaq already had sex… it’s been a week. Casa Amor will really kill them, put these ppl on Too Hot To Handle.”

A second added: “They had sex already? Casa is gonna have one of them so distressed I can’t lie.”

“Once you have sex in the villa you are cuffed,” a third wrote.

It comes after the Islanders faced a recoupling on Thursday evening, in which S haq had a lot of major things to say during his speech as he waxed lyrical about the Liverpool star.

As Shaq stood to pick the girl he would like to couple up with he revealed: “I can genuinely see myself falling in love with her”.

The heartfelt sentiment left Tanya blushing, as she hid her face in her hair while her fellow Islanders around her grinned.

Love Island airs every night at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
