Love Island viewers have revealed they were disappointed in Luca Bish’s behaviour after the dramatic episode on Sunday saw newcomer Danica Taylor chose to couple up with him.

The 21-year-old dancer had been in the villa for less than 24 hours when she was tasked with chosing a boy to couple up with.

Fans quickly branded fishmonger Bish’s behaviour as “rude” as he showed how upset he was about not recoupling with Gemma Owen, 19.

After he sat next to his new partner, he whispered to Ekin-su Cülcüloğlu that he was “raging” as he watched the daughter of former footballer Michael Owen couple up with Davide Sanclimenti.

Social media was awash with fans calling the 23-year-old out on his behaviour.

“Finally watching today’s #loveisland and Luca is being so rude in that fire pit towards Danica,” wrote one.

“Luca’s acting as if he has to marry danica relax #loveisland,” others wrote.

Former islander Shaughna Phillips wrote: “I get Luca had the hump but he doesn’t need to be THAT mean, or am I just soft lol.”

“I think Danica handled that so well, Luca could have at least said thank you, he was still saved at the end of the day. And she’s right, he should be a bit more open minded because we all know what happens when people close themselves off too early…”

But after a good night’s sleep by himself and a pep talk from the other boys, Bish headed on a beach date with Taylor and ended up agreeing to be her wingman.

Elswhere in the recoupling, Tasha Ghouri chose to stay with Andrew Le Page while Amber Beckford chose Dami Hope and Paige Thorne chose Jacques O’Neill.

Another twist came when Indiyah Polack was forced to choose between Ikenna Ekwonna and new boy Remi Lambert who were the last two standing.

She chose to stick with Ekwonna, meaning Lambert headed home after only spending a few nights in the villa.
