Yes, really

Welcome to The Tab’s Love Island 2020 gossip round-up, bringing you the pettiest drama and the least believable tabloid exclusives from around the web today.

Sophie and Connor are dating!

After both being dumped from the island, Connor and Sophie have reunited and are officially dating. Their first date was a trip to the cinema and then back to a hotel together. Connor was seen carrying her bags and they were holding hands and wrapping their legs around each other in the back of a taxi. The Mirror called it a “very touchy feely display”.

They’ve been all over each other’s social media profiles. They were on one another’s Instagram stories after appearing on Aftersun and Connor has posted a picture of them together, captioned: “It’s good to have her back ❤️”. Adorable.

Ollie says fellow Islanders tried to get him to stay in the villa for brand deals

Remember Ollie? He’s the one who quit the villa after three days so that he could get back with his ex. In a new podcast he said some of his fellow Islanders tried to persuade him to stay in the villa to get Instagram followers and secure brand deals.

He told BBC Radio 1’s The Reality Tea Podcast: “A couple of the boys off the record were like ‘mate, think about, not even about the love, just get in a friendship couple. Just think about all the deals that will come out of it and stuff. And think about all the followers’.”

Molly was apparently sat on the ‘pretty table’ at her Love Island audition

Molly is insanely beautiful and we all know it. But she is actually that stunning that Love Island producers sat her on a specific table for hot people during the audition process. Someone who applied for the show and got to the auditions told The Tab: “Molly was at my casting. She was sat at a totally different table where only the really really pretty people sat.”

I’m really not surprised

A model sold underwear she wore when she allegedly had sex with Mike

A model has sold the underwear she wore the night she claims she had sex with Mike for £26,000. Yes. Really.

Lucy Danes listed the yellow bikini thong on eBay for £4.99, but ended up getting 34 higher bids. In a Facebook post, she said: “Around four months ago I slept with Mike from Love Island. He banged me in some woods. I’ve decided to [put] the pants I had on that night for sale they still ain’t been washed what you reckon they worth”. She added: “Tag a mate that might want them”.

You are the subject of the meme Michael, it’s not funny when you do it yourself. Stay in your lane.

Loads of the Casa Amor Islanders have Love Island connections already

We already knew that half of the Love Islanders from previous series secretly knew each other or had rogue Love Island connections before the villa. But it’s become clear that this year’s bunch are no different. New boy Josh models with Jordan from last year, Jess and new boy Alexi have already been texting in the past, apparently Priscilla knows Jourdan from last year and Biggs is mates with Anton.

There’s a whole web of Islanders. Seriously, there is.

Leanne wants Ovie to slide in her DMs

Leanne got the ick with Mike (same), and then he savagely voted her out. And in her appearance on Aftersun Leanne has made it very clear she’s ready to move on – and with none other than king Ovie Soko. She said: “Valentine’s Day is coming up, so Ovie, if you’re watching, slide into them DMs!”

Amy has said Casa Amor is ‘mentally torturous’ and ‘pure hell’

Amy Hart had a tough time in Casa Amor. She was coupled up with Curtis, who was cracking on with Jourdan and in the end she WAS COMING BACK HERE TO TELL YOU I LOVED YOU.

And now, she’s taken to Twitter to warn the girls of what’s in store. She said: “Casa Amor is literally mentally torturous, when it all kicks off when you get back is a total different ball game, but the not knowing what’s going on is pure hell. Sending so much love to the gals”.

Dani Dyer’s boyfriend is in court for scamming elderly people???!!
