The drama is coming thick and fast in the Love Island villa and another dramatic recoupling saw Jacques O'Neill and Paige Thorne separated.

Friday's (June 24) episode saw Danica Taylor receive a text asking contestants to gather around the infamous fire pit.

The boys had the power this time with them choosing who they would to pair up with in the season's fourth recoupling.

Having spent their first night away in the hideaway, Jacques had his sights on Paige, but Jay Younger had other ideas.

In a shocking twist, Jay picked Paige to couple up with, leaving Jacques visibly annoyed at his decision.

"I've decided to couple up with this girl because I think she is beautiful, I think she's got an amazing personality," said Jay before making his decision.

"She knows what I mean when I compare her to a belter and I want to explore where things could go with her. So the girl I want to couple up with is… Paige," he added, before the Welsh paramedic walked towards him and pecked him on a cheek.

This move forced Jacques to couple up with one of the newer girls to enter the villa, 21-year-old dancer Danica.

Jacques said: "This girl came in and she took a risk and it didn’t pay off for her and she hasn’t really found a connection, so I’m hoping someone does come in for her. She has a real spark. She’s got a good personality as well, so… Danica."

Viewers flocked to Twitter to comment on the recoupling. One user said: "Paige and Jacques not being able to stay together is so sad, her face and his face when it happened – heartbreaking."

Despite not being able to share a bed, Jacques and Paige still held hands in bed next to each other.

"Jacques and Paige holding hands to fall asleep, despite being coupled up with other people, is kind of sweet," added another viewer on social media.

A third added: Paige and Jacques holding hands from opposite beds had me sobbing."
