Will Young and Jessie Wynter’s Awkward Conversation
Will Young, 23, and Jessie Wynter, 26, continue their relationship drama while other islanders cause trouble off-camera. Recently, Australian bombshell Jessie -- famous for her self-deprecating sense of humour and love of flashy dance routines in this winter's Love Island series -- found herself the centre of controversy after being grabbed and interrupted by strangers while out with Will.
Will and Jessie, who share a home on a farm, were enjoying a romantic date night at STK Steakhouse in London before the incident took place. A TikTok clip circulated online showed him looking uncomfortable as people grab him while the couple chat. Will then share a video showing himself and Jessie hugging each other while declaring their love - though some fans expressed doubt over such declarations on social media.
Jessie and Will are working through their relationship issues, yet are both struggling with doubts regarding each other's sincerity. Although Will insists he doesn't view Jessie as being fake, she remains concerned by his behaviour when he flirted with Layla Al-Momani at Casa Amor.
Will admitted that, upon learning that other contestants were getting intoxicated, he decided to drink vodka in front of them all and shared with Tom Clare, Casey O'Gorman and Rosie Seaford (known as the Three Musketeers). They began getting drunk after imbibing some shots of tequila and whisky. Will noted this behaviour before declaring himself to be drunk.
Jessie later confronted Will about her concerns, but he insisted that he wasn't being dishonest about their situation despite her suspicions. He told her he wanted their relationship to continue due to his feelings for her; telling her it would only bring pain if they broke apart due to him not trusting her enough.
Jessie then informed him that she felt as if he were being dishonest with her and did not believe he could keep his promises. Although he attempted to reassure her of their safety, Jessie felt upset and hurt by what had been told to her.

Shaq and Tanya had managed to reignite their romance during the show's finale and entered it together, yet now appear close to breaking up again. On Wednesday evening they attended Movie Night and watched clips showing some of Casa Amor's islander antics which caused Shaq's romance with Tanya to crumble upon watching his partner engage in playboy antics with Martin while leaving him feeling as if all truth had not been divulged and it looks likely they will break up once more moving forward.

Maxwell Samuda And Olivia Buckland’s Awkward Moment
Maxwell and Olivia seemed like an unlikely couple in the villa; their relationship wasn't always clear to viewers. While they shared interests such as music and food, it never felt as if Maxwell and Olivia were truly close compared to other couples; rather Maxwell always seemed distant whilst Olivia seemed more expressive of emotions.
At first, their relationship was awkward due to sleeping separately in separate rooms and not talking much to one another; upon hearing of Maxwell's injury, it appeared as though their romance was over for good.
After reconnecting during the final week, it appeared as though they would attempt to make things work; however, after many difficult conversations and the realization that their differences were too great to overcome, the couple officially broke up in October 2022.
Never was true love evident between this couple. Signs of tension emerged during their stay in the villa and, soon enough, months after its completion they parted ways - neither one holding any blame in terms of individual personalities being different from one other.
Maxwell is currently playing as a professional footballer with Accrington Stanley and previously with Fleetwood Town and Chesterfield; additionally, he was part of the England Under-21 squad for several years.
Maxwell recently appeared on ITVBe's Crackin' On and was paired up with dancer Megan McKenna. While they became inseparable in the villa and made it to the final, unfortunately, their love didn't last and have since parted ways.
