Love Island fans saw this year’s strongest couple Luca Bish and Gemma Owen torn apart last night after bombshell Danica Taylor picked Luca, 23, in a shock recoupling.
In Sunday night’s episode, fans watched on as newcomer Danica opted for the fishmonger from Brighton from the line-up of boys, leaving him “gutted” and Gemma with no option but to find a new partner.
While Gemma, the daughter of former England footballer Michael Owen, chose to recouple with Davide Sanclimenti for the second time this series, Luca declared the forced split would only “make [him and Gemma] stronger.”
However fans were not convinced, with many questioning why he was so emotionally involved so soon – and some accusing him of having already hatched a “game plan.”
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “Luca definitely knows who Gemma’s dad is.”
While another added: “Luca has worked out who Gemma’s dad is and he wants to be the next Hack Finch, that’s his game plan calling it now!”
A third wrote: “Luca definitely knows who Gemma’s dad is. He’s clinging on way too much for a girl that doesn’t give him much in return.”
The brutal recoupling, which saw Remi evicted from the Island, left Luca less than impressed. As Davide crossed the firepit area to hug Gemma, the camera zoomed in on Luca, who could be seen looking pretty uncomfortable at the new coupling – and sitting a considerable distance away from his new partner Danica.
However, despite both having new partners Gemma, 19, and Luca later crept off to the side to discuss their feelings, announcing they would still like to give their relationship a go.
Luca told Gemma he only saw 21 one year old Danica as more of a friend and that he only had eyes for her.
Earlier in the episode, Danica gathered everyone around the firepit and explained her reasoning for choosing her match, before she revealed she’d picked Luca.
She explained: “I haven't even been here twenty-four hours so this is a really weird situation for me to be in. I’ve barely got to know any of you but you’re all lovely boys…
“I need to follow my heart and I can only go on what I see face value, and someone I feel is usually my type. I need to explore that unfortunately, so I’m going to have to just follow my heart on this one."
She continued: “The boy i want to couple up with is… Luca".
