Bombshell Danica made a shocking arrival to the Love Island villa on Friday with ITV viewers having to endure an agonizing weekend to find out who she would couple up with.

After she made her dramatic entrance during Friday’s ‘Sex Sea’ challenge, the 21-year-old dancer was quick to get to know the boys.

Quite right too because, at the end of the episode, a text gathered the islanders around the firepit for a nail-biting recoupling which would send the single boy home.

At the beginning of Sunday’s episode, Danica was first to make her choice and it didn’t exactly go down well.

New Love Island girl Danica couples up with Luca in dramatic recoupling

Danica chose to couple up Luca Bish on Sunday’s recoupling and it wasn’t exactly well-received.

Luca was originally coupled up with Chester star Gemma, leaving the 19-year-old broken-hearted and clueless about who to pick.

Since Danica chose Luca, one boy was left single and therefore, was eliminated from the villa.

The Islanders then gathered for a tearful and heartfelt goodbye, before Remi rolled out his suitcase and took the plane back from Majorca.

Leaving the Villa the newly formed couple make their way to the beach as they enjoy a romantic shoreside setting complete with picnic blanket and drinks.

Speaking on the date, Danica says: “Honestly, this is probably the second genuine date I think I’ve been on.”

Luca replies: “Wow, pleasure.”

He goes on to add: “I am sure a lot of boys would want to kiss you.”

Danica questions: “Kisses on first dates?”
