Nothing gets past Love Island fans these days, and many viewers think they've managed to 'uncover' the real reason Islander Harriett Blackmore opted to couple up with Ronnie Vint.

Although Ronnie, 27, appeared to be hitting things off with Jess White just moments ago, it's no secret that he's been open to having a few chats here and there with other girls in the villa. So, when 25 year old Jess issued him an ultimatum, this resulted in Ronnie being in a new couple with Harriett on Monday night’s episode (24 June).

But, according to fans on social media site Reddit, the 24 year old dancer's intentions aren't genuine and all might not be as it appears on the ITV2 dating show.

One viewer wrote: "I think she's a total game player. she obviously wants to stay in there as long as possible and she's better off with someone (even if it is Ronnie) than being alone."

Another comment read: "They all know that in this game if you don’t have options you’re at risk of being dumped. So sometimes you need to go with what’s in front of you and wait for someone better to hopefully come in later."

Viewers also took to X - formerly known as Twitter - to share the same idea and suggested that Ronnie and Harriett could both using one other to stay in the villa as long as possible.

One viewer noted: "Not Harriet saying she doesn't even like Ronnie, my girl just wants to stay in the villa. Ronnie has no personality and Harriet is desperate for the Instagram love after the show," wrote a second fan.

As a third user stated: "Ronnie still can’t be trusted! He’s playing cool with Harriett to stay in the game, until Casa Amor or another bombshell walked into the villa."

Meanwhile, a fourth fan suggested: "Ronnie will stay with Harriet if the public keeps him safe. If they are in the bottom, his eyes will start to wonder."

Harriett and Ronnie's couple isn't the only one to ruffle a few feathers in the villa as newcommer Konnor Ewudzi also chose to recouple up with Grace Jackson, despite her close relationship with former flame Joey Essex. Konnor hasn’t played it safe since coming into the Island, choosing ‘taken’ Islanders Mimii, Grace and Nicole to go on dates with him.
