Anna-May doesn’t think Tanya and Shaq are all that
Tanya may have confessed her love to Shaq, but dumped Islander Anna-May doesn’t think it carries much weight. Looking ahead to Casa Amor, Anna-May told Digital Spy: “I feel like they both kind of have their options open. Well, they did while I was in the villa with them.
“I feel like in Casa Amor if they have a few more girls Shaq’s head could turn again. And I do think Tanya’s head could potentially turn as well. I do think they’re good together, but I feel like they may feel they’re better with someone else. I feel like they both like a test. They like to prove to themselves that they’ll go back together but I feel like there’s only so many tests you can have.”
In tonight’s episode, Kai turns his attention to Olivia
In a look ahead to tonight’s episode, one thing that is going to come around is Kai turning his attention to Olivia. In the morning, Kai catches up with Ron in the garden and discusses his plan to get to know Olivia better.
Kai tells Ron, “No time like the present”, as he calls her over. On the beanbags, Kai puts his talk into action as he tells Olivia: “For the past week I have been thinking I do want to get to know you more.” Olivia agrees as she says: “Yeah me too.”
As Kai and Olivia catch up she says: “Not to blow your head up but you are more my type. But I think that’s obvious because I picked you on the first day.”Kai replies: “You’ll have to graft me a little bit though won’t you?” Olivia laughs as she tells him: “Oh, shut up.”
Is a new connection blossoming? And where does this leave their respective couples?
And Ron and Casey battle it out for Lana
Following their date, Casey continues to pursue Lana. The pair have a chat, and then the next morning it seems a battle has begun over breakfast.
Casey heads over to Lana and asks: “How’s it going? Do you want some scrambled eggs? Have you had breakfast? I can make you something.” However, it seems that Ron is already cooking something up in the kitchen. From across the villa Ron cheekily says: “You’re too late mate, it’s all well and good but you’re too late, if you’re going to get on job you’ve got to be quick with it.”
As Casey heads towards the kitchen, Ron laughs as he asks Casey: “Is that it now, is it going to be the race for Lana’s breakfast?”
