Will Andrew choose Coco in the Stick or Twist ceremony?

Coco came into the villa initially interested in Davide, but in recent days, the 27-year-old has been getting closer with Andrew Le Page. Andrew, who was coupled up with Tasha, told Coco he was interested in the star before the pair shared a kiss on the terrace. Andrew also told the boys he was unsure whether Tasha was "mugging" him off, which lead his head to turn towards Coco.

During Thursday's episode of Love Island, the Stick or Twist ceremony will see the two villas, the main villa and Casa Amor, come together when the contestants must decide whether to remain with their current partner or couple up with a new bombshell.
