Love Island's Shaq and Haris clash as tensions boil over in villa over truth or dare game

Love Island's new series has had its slice of drama, after Shaq Muhammad and Haris Namani clashed in heated scenes at the end of Thursday's episode.

Prior to the fourth show of Love Island's new series, die-hard fans had condemned the first few days of villa action for being 'too dull', with Tuesday night's episode being 'one of the most boring ever,' as viewers called for new presenter Maya Jama to get more airtime to 'rescue' it.

While the new run of Love Island, its second in South Africa, is still less than a week old there has already been three bombshells - Tom, David and Zara and Londoner Zara was at the centre of the tension as the Islanders when they played a game of truth or dare, choosing Olivia when asked to kiss the most 'two faced' person on the cheek.

That left Olivia far from impressed and then, as the boys and girls broke off to have separate chats, things got between Shaq and Haris, when Haris asked new arrival David what it was like kissing Tanya during the game, knowing fine well Shaq, who is coupled up with Tanya, was in earshot.

A taken aback David, clearly conscious of Shaq's presence, fired back: "What's wrong with you bro?" as a riled up Shaq told him: "You're so annoying bro. You do this all the time," prompting Haris to shout: "Shut the f**k up!"

As things escalated, Shaq retaliated, adding: "You do this all the f**king time. You try and s**t stir. You s**t stir all the time."

Both lads then got to their feet, with Haris telling Shaq: "Don't speak to me like that," but Shaq, standing strong, retorted: "I'll speak to you however I want," before Shaq was escorted away by Ron and Haris was also ushered away to the other side of the garden by Will.
