Thursday night's episode of Love Island, AKA the best episode yet, saw the boys strip down and give the girls a sexy striptease. YES PLEASE.


The girls' heart rates were measured during the task to see which of the guys got their pulses racing the most and should be crowned winner. FYI, mine was through the roof for ALL of them (except Sam).

Naturally, you'd think it would be at its highest when your boyfriend is stripping down, right? Well not for Liverpudlian babe Gabby Allen who got more flustered for Theo Campbell than for her other half, Marcel Somerville.

What is going on!? Doesn't she know he used to be in Blazin' Squad?

The results were texted to the Islanders, and Marcel was obviously completely gutted that she seemed to fancy Theo more than him. A confused Gabby reassured him, and said: "I don't know how that happened."


Fans now believe that this revelation actually means that Gabby isn't being genuine with her feelings for Marcel, and is instead "faking" them to win the massive £50,000 cash prize.

Viewers took to Twitter to air their frustrations and speculate over what this means for the couple's future.

Please don't let this be true. They've been my fave couple since day one.

Some users claimed that Gabby was probably just a bit embarrassed which would explain why her pulse was so high for someone else.

One fan backed up the personal trainer and wrote: "Gabby's heart rate was prob highest for Theo due to second hand embarrassment. (sic)"

To be fair to her, she did seem pretty annoyed when she found out that Marcel had actually snogged Shannen McGrath TWICE in this clip:

The show's producer's recently announced that Love Island will be ending on the 24th of July, so hopefully they'll be okay by then and all this drama will be a distant memory.
