Love Island: Huge twist expected by fans as couples gear up for final

In a brand-new component of Love Island for this year's winter series, the hopefuls will get to cast their vote on the couple they believe is the least compatible, leaving the 'winners' in jeopardy of being dumped from the programme.

With less than a week until the ITV series finale, tensions are starting to build at the villa just before host and Bristol's very own Maya Jama will arrive to crown the winner.

In an earlier spoiler, it was revealed that the couples will be getting to cast their votes for those they believe have the least amount of chemistry between them.

“Islanders, the time has come for each of you to go on your final date! #ADateToRemember," a text reads, which prompts Shaq Muhammad to confess, "You just know the final dates are going to be amazing.”

Discussing their Love Island journey while on their final date, Ron Hall says: “Day one and now look at where we are, having a breakfast date on a river, a floating date!” reports OK! magazine.

Reflecting on their experience, Lana Jenkins then tells Ron: “It’s like overwhelming joy, I’m just buzzing that we’ve had this journey together and we are here now, I’ve loved every second.”

The next couple to go on a date are Tom Clare and Samie Elishi, who rock up in a Ferrari before being whisked off to a private mountainside restaurant in the middle of a lake, complete with red rose petals galore.

"This feels like a dream" admits Tom dreamily.

Shaq and Tanya arrive to a string quartet, also garnished with red rose petals and candles. After taking their seats Shaq admits: “With you I’ve found the one, I don’t want anyone else.” The two agree that their relationship is stronger than it ever has been.

Last Sunday's episode saw 245 complaints pile through the door of Ofcom, labelling the exclusion of Ron and Kai as "bullying":

One person wrote: "I don’t love the boys are excluding Ron and Kai it’s disgusting and horrendous it’s giving bullies vibs and high school."

"These 4 lads here were so childish. Ron was a mess and Shaq made the right move to tell him right infront of his face but he went from being the bigger man to being the bigger bully. Can't stand looking at Shaq, Will, Casey and Tom here", another said.

A third added: "I greatly appreciate Lana for sticking with Ron throughout the mess. Never did she doubted him so some of the clips are bearable to watch. Can't watch the entire episode though coz disliking someone doesn't give you the right to bully him/her."
