Heartbroken Love Island star Shaq has a heart-to-heart with tonight Martin following Tanya's decision to recouple after Casa Amor week.

Although Tanya confessed her to Shaq just days before heading off to Casa Amor, she left her fellow islanders shocked when she walked back into the main villa hand-in-hand with Dublin hunk, Martin, after the pair sparked up a connection in Casa.

Following last night's explosive episode where Shaq let his hurt feeling be known, he and Martin found themselves having a deep conversation about Tanya.

It comes after the Casa Amor recoupling caused carnage in last night's episode, leaving broken hearts and fuming bombshells in its wake.

While fans were left reeling from the dramatic episode, viewers were particularly affected by the exchanges between Shaq and Tanya and Will and Jessie.

Both couples had seemed the strongest before Casa Amor's customary temptation, with Will and Jessie saying they could see themselves falling in love, and Tanya and Shaq actually saying they love each other.

The pair had also spent time in the hideaway, with both couples sleeping together.

While Jessie remained loyal to Will, the farmer flirted and kissed Layla, but later regretted his actions and felt guilty. He chose to stay coupled with Jessie.

Tanya, who had been having doubts over Shaq's behaviour before she headed to Casa, kissed Martin and chose to recouple with him, leaving Shaq broken.

Viewers have been particularly touched by Shaq and Jessie's plight, with one fan on Reddit saying: "With both of these couples, their actions didn’t feel like your standard love island casa amor drama - it felt real life.

"It was actual cheating we witnessed, and we witnessed the partner find out about the cheating live. It was honestly crazy and I’m still thinking about it hours later," one fumed.

Another viewer replied: "It did feel more real idk why. Maybe the connections just came across as more genuine to us than previous seasons."

A third wrote: "I felt so bad for Shaq and Jessie, you could see Shaq was trying to stay composed and just not having it and then Jessie literally after what happened looked zoned out and her saying “I knew I could trust you” hurt especially if y’all saw her experience on LI Australia."

Elsewhere on the show, Casey chose to stay with Claudia, who had also chose to recouple with him. Ron and Lana chose to stay together, whilst the same could be said for Samie and Tom. Kai recoupled with Sanam before Olivia walked in with Maxwell, confirming her choice.
