Love Island first look sees Haris and Shaq go head to head after explosive row

One of the boys will be dumped from the villa in tonight's Love Island after tensions soared between Shaq Muhammad and Haris Namani.

On Thursday night's episode, the love rivals came to blows after a game of beer pong.

The drama was sparked after Shaq branded Haris a s*** stirrer after he goaded him about Tanya Manhenga's steamy snog with bombshell David Salako.

David and Tanya locked lips as part of a challenge where he had to kiss the islander he fancies the most for 30 seconds.

After the boys sat down to chat about the game, Haris asked David what he made of the kiss - which got up Shaq's nose.

The conversation got heated and they began throwing insults at one another.

Haris could be heard telling Shaq to "shut the f*** up," to which Shaq fired back: "You shut the f*** up you f****** p****."

They both had to be pulled apart from each other as they continued to hurl insults.

Haris told Shaq not to speak to him like that, with Shaq hit back: "I'll speak to you however I want!"

The girls, who were deep in their own conversations watched on as the boys bickered.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the scuffle, with one writing: "'Haris knew he was wrong for that. If he really cared to know he could have asked David alone.

"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."

In tonight's episode, Shaq and Haris have a chat to set aside their differences.

Haris embraced Shaq, saying: "Quick one, bro, it's got to be a quick one bro, the only thing that got to me is to call me a s*** stirrer is a big thing, that's it.

Shaq replied: "I get that, you're young and you've got all this energy and things like that, but sometimes you need to understand certain situations and know what to say and when to say it and I don't think you get that."

Whilst the conversation was unfolding, Tanya shared her thoughts on the argument as she sat on one of the bean bags.

"He needs to take a big fat chill pill, calm down. Relax," she said as she huffed.

Elsewhere Olivia Hawkins and newcomer Zara Lackenby-Brown had their own falling out after she called Olivia "two-faced".

During the game of beer pong Zara was asked to kiss the person she thought was the least trustworthy on both cheeks.

Olivia was clearly unimpressed after she was chosen and she said that she felt "humiliated".

In tonight's episode, Zara appeared to be confused as to why Olivia was so upset by the game.

"She's gotten so upset, and I think I've got the brunt of it because obviously, I made that comment. I thought she could take it on the chin, obviously not," she said in the diary room.

Later in the show, Shaq announces that he's got a text and tells the other islanders that there will be the first recoupling of the show, which will mean one boy will be sent packing.
