Tuesday night’s episode of Love Island sees the return on the heart rate challenge, but that’s not the only thing that will turn up the temperature in the villa.
Danica will pull Andrew for a chat to admit how she feels, telling him: ‘I do fancy you,’ just a day after he and Tasha seemed to be back on track, with the blonde dancer finally putting all her eggs into Andrew’s basket following the arrival of Charlie Radnedge.
SPOILER: Danica Taylor, 21, sets her sights on Andrew Le Page, 27, and makes the most of the heart rate challenge by giving him a very saucy lap dance
Starting her morning with a pep talk from Ekin-Su, Danica says: ‘You are a bombshell, remember. You are a Bomb. Shell. You came in a shell – but we don’t see the bomb exploding.’
Danica agrees: ‘Yeah the bomb exploded and then it just died down… well not anymore, hun.’
Fresh from being pumped up, Danica pulls Andrew for a chat, and lays her cards on the table, saying: ‘You are a fully grown man, you will do whatever you want to do.
‘But actually, I just need to be honest with you and what I feel and what vibe I get. I do enjoy getting to know you.’
Uh oh! Danica will risk the wrath of Tasha Ghouri, 23, a day after the blonde dancer finally put all her eggs into Andrew’s basket following the arrival of Charlie Radnedge
Andrew agrees: ‘Yeah, I do enjoy our chats to be fair,’ while Danica continues: ‘Obviously, I think this is more for me to just let you know I do fancy you, I’m open to getting to know you a bit more.
‘I enjoy our conversations, you make me feel very comfortable and I’m just letting you know so you’ve got the heads up.’
Will Andrew be open to Danica’s advances, or will he continue to have tunnel vision for Tasha?
Elsewhere in the episode, Danica makes the most of the heart rate challenge by giving Andrew a very saucy lap dance.
Laying it all out: Danica will pull Andrew for a chat to admit how she feels, telling him: ‘I do fancy you, I’m open to getting to know you a bit more’
Will his head turn? During their chat, Andrew tells Danica: ‘Yeah, I do enjoy our chats to be fair’
It comes after Tasha finally put all of her eggs in Andrew’s basket, telling him that she’s only interest in him, after days of tension between them amid her interest in new boy Charlie.
In turn, Andrew confessed his feelings for Tasha, admitting that he sees a future with her and doesn’t want to leave the villa with anyone else.
Tasha previously broke down before the weekend, after learning the boys had cast doubt on her romance with Andrew.
They noted how her head had been turned by every new man that had entered the villa after she confessed she was open to get to know Charlie.
Complicated: It comes just a day after Tasha finally put all her eggs into Andrew’s basket following the arrival of Charlie Radnedge
Tasha also admitted to the girls she did recognise Charlie on the outside, having come across his profile on the dating app Hinge.
Andrew was keen to find out how Tasha’s date with Charlie went, and she explained: ‘I went in with a complete open-mind to see what happens. It was a good date. He’s a good-looking guy,’ before confessing she felt she’d ‘lost herself’ since she first entered the villa nearly three weeks earlier.
‘I’m not surprised he picked you. You’re a very good-looking girl. You’re obviously super nice and amazing,’ replied Andrew.
Bombshell: Charlie chose Tasha for a date following his arrival and seemed to ‘scramble’ her head before she finally focused her attention back on Andrew
But after Tasha admitted to enjoying the date with the new bombshell, Andrew was left disheartened ahead of the recoupling, and the boys quickly noted it was clear how much he liked Tasha.
Prior to the recoupling, Andrew was left to sweat while Tasha had a chat with Charlie on the sun deck, where he asked ‘would you be open to seeing what would happen?’.
‘I wanted to see where your head’s at, really. I enjoyed the date today, it was good fun. We got on pretty well. If I were to pick you, would you be open to seeing what would happen or are you closed off to it?’
While a furious Andrew insisted he wasn’t going to stay in the villa and be ‘mugged off,’ Tasha tried to speak to him about his feelings, but when he questioned why her feelings had changed so drastically, she walked away upset.
