Gemma was originally coupled up with Liam Llewellyn, 22, but had her head turned when the Italian stallion entered the villa.

One fan wrote: "Oh god Gemma and Davide? Someone call Ofcom. That’s f**** disgusting," whilst another said: "27-year-old coupling up with a 19-year-old, I’m calling Ofcom."

Liam is now at risk of being dumped from the island as he is currently single.

However, two new girls are set to enter the villa and they're not afraid to step on some toes.

At the end of Tuesday's episode, it was confirmed that Afia Tonkmor and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu will be heading in to join the other islanders.

Afia, 25, said: "If I see a guy that I want in the villa, I'm definitely going to make sure that I get him

"Watch out girls, I'm coming for your mans."

Ekin-Su, 27, said: "I can't wait to get into the villa because I personally think I'll bring everything, the whole package – drama, tears, laughter, joy and love.

"I am looking for the love of my life, I'm not there to make friends. If someone wants to have an argument with me, bring it on."

Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2
