Love Island Gossip Column: Amber UNFOLLOWED Michael on Instagram?!! And did her head turn in Casa Amor?
It’s so petty I love it
Welcome to The Tab's daily Love Island 2019 gossip round-up, bringing you the pettiest drama and the least believable tabloid exclusives from around the web today.
Amber unfollowed Michael on Instagram!!
We know the people running Amber and Michael’s socials ceased giving a single fuck a long time ago, and have been tweeting some absolute flames over the last few days. But did you know whoever’s running Amber’s account unfollowed Michael on Instagram? Amazing.
Apparently Amber's head turned in Casa Amor
Dumped Islander Dennon Lewis told The Mirror he spent 90 per cent of his time with Amber while the two were in Casa Amor, suggesting producers didn't show any of the footage.
He said: "Me and Amber got very close. As a friendship. Obviously there was the situation with her and Michael, who we thought were very strong.
"If things were different maybe we would have coupled up or something. We had a strong relationship and we kind of grew a friendship from it."
He added: "I don't want to see Michael again because me and Amber got very close and I didn’t think he’d do that to her. I do love Amber."
Maura has a bum tattoo
If you have an eye for detail and/or looking at people’s bums, you might have noticed Maura has a tattoo on hers. Yup – it’s a lipstick smear-type thing. Here’s a picture of it:

He added: "You can come out of it and there are relationships and love, then that’s amazing. I think it really starts when you leave the villa with your partner when you go out into the world."
Does Lewis Capaldi fancy Maura?
Full time banter merchant and occasional pop star Lewis Capaldi seems to be keeping up with the show. Last night he retweeted a video of Maura and captioned it: “I will teach you how to dance.”
She might need Lewis’s help given Marvin appears to be using her.
Tommy used Rihanna lyrics to impress Molly-Mae

Fans are convinced Ovie and Amber will end up together
The aftermath of the recoupling this week was a lot to take in, but one key detail fans have noticed is the cuddle between Amber and Ovie. Was it an innocent bit of comforting? Or was it something more? Many are speculating the two will end up together:
Jordan to steal Anna back. Ovie to get with Amber. Amber will go through if Anna gives her the green light. I think Anna will. #LoveIsland
