Love Island bosses made huge change to original Casa Amor rules to stop favourites going



It's almost time for the brutal Casa Amor recoupling - but it won't be as nervy as the epic very first one.

Love Island fans will be on edge as they wait to see whether the original boys and girls stick with their current partners or brutally twist.

The scandal-filled second villa is the ultimate test on any relationship, as the Islanders get a chance to mingle with six bombshells away from prying eyes.

Most years it's the boys who go off on a mini lads holiday away from the main villa, but this time round it was the ladies who sneaked off for a few days away from home.

It's already looking bad for Will, who cheated on Jessie, while Ron has been the surprise package by staying loyal.

Viewers will be eagerly anticipating the girls’ return to the main villa and the carnage that will inevitably ensue.

However, bosses have made a major change from the first time we saw a Casa Amor recouping.

The surprise second villa was first used during the third series of the ITV2 dating show back in 2017 - where Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies would emerge winners.

No one was expecting the boys to be told to sneak off in the morning and head to another villa that was just round the corner.

As with the Casa Amor we know and love now, both villas were joined by six sexy new singletons each in a bid to get heads to turn.

Over the course of 3 days, the rival villas competed in a series of challenges against each other and even the strongest relationships started to fall apart.

The most dramatic moment of all came when the girls received a nasty surprise through the door in the form of a postcard with snaps of their lads in bed or smooching the new girls.

Then came the first time we witnessed the ‘Stick or Twist’ recoupling, in which the Islanders had to choose whether to stay with their original partner or go for someone new.

To make it even more exciting, the original girls had to pick first and then the lads would walk back in - either alone or with one of the newbies.

So far this is all sounding very familiar, but it was even more brutal than what we have witnessed on the show in recent series.

If a couple both decided to stick, then they would stay together, and if they both chose to twist then they would both recouple with new Islanders.

However, if only half of the couple decided to stick then the person who decided to stay loyal was savagely booted out of the villa.

It didn’t matter whether you were an original Islander, there was no safety net and you were still given the chop.

During series 3, Dom Lever ended up leaving because he chose to stick and Montana Brown recoupled (although this made sense as they were only in a friendship couple and his future wife Jessica Shears had already left).

The following year, bosses decided to change the rule so that Islanders who had been in the main villa beforehand would stay regardless of the outcome of the recouping.

This has been a crucial change as many popular Islanders would have gone home at a far earlier stage, including the likes of Georgia Steele and eventual winner Amber Gill.

Which heads will be turned during this year's Casa Amor?
