Amber and Michael's chemistry is undeniable

The duos' relationship has been up and down ever since Michael decided he preferred Joanna and dumped Amber in the Casa Amor segment of the show. Brutal.

They've had a few screaming rows but that's all been put to bed (for now).

In the raise your heart rate dancing challenge, Amber revealed that she was the one who had raised Michael's heart rate the most, despite Joanna putting on quite a sexy show.

Obviously, the Geordie was very smug about this and her feelings toward Michael poured out, explaining that they were still there to the girls and breaking down in tears the night before.

Michael sat down for a chat with Jordan and spoke about the situation, to which Jordan said: "From what I’ve seen, you and Joanna don’t have as much chemistry as you and Amber did. If you did change your mind, there would be nothing wrong with that."

Could Michael do a 180? We'll find out soon enough.

Molly-Mae and Tommy enjoyed a night away

The happy couple, now officially boyfriend and girlfriend enjoyed a night away in the hideaway.

Both implied that things were gonna get jiggy and the girls urged Molly-Mae to keep her French maid costume on.

However, as things have now changed in terms of Love Island's rules due to complaints, no sex scene was aired.

The boys competed in a "lad" challenge

All of the guys took part in the most testosterone-filled challenge we've ever seen.

They were made to down a fake pint with beer goggles on, score a goal with their partners trying to save the ball.

Anton went flying after tripping on his ball and a few of the guys missed the ball completely but Marvin managed to score a goal - he is a semi-pro player after all.

They then had to do squats with their girls on top of their thighs, and Anton and Michael won their rounds.

To end, the guys all had to eat a vindaloo as fast as they could - newbie Chris Taylor won this round.

Curtis has two ladies fighting for him

Curtis has become a bit of an object of affection since finishing things with Amy and her leaving the villa.

It seemed like him and Maura would be pretty smooth-sailing after Amy told him to go for it.... enter Francesca.

She picked Curtis for one of her dates, the other being Ovie, but admitted she had better chemistry with Curtis.

Maura clocked on to this and turned the heat up with him, kissing him in the previous episode's dancing challenge.

The recoupling

Essex gal Francesca got to pick first, which wasn't good stuff for Maura as she went for CURTIS in the end after considering Marvin for a while too.

The rest of the couples were as follows:

Joanna and Michael

Anna and Jordan

Molly-Mae and Tommy

Belle and Anton

Amber and Ovie (as friends)

Maura and Chris

This meant that Marvin was subsequently dumped from the villa.
