The last couple of days in the Love Island villa have been pretty dramatic. Not only was Shannon Signh given the boot in a surprise dumping, but the contestants also welcomed two new islanders, Liam Reardon and Chuggs Wallis, who each chose one of the girls to take on a date. Clearly there's lots to unpack here, and it's not just about the name 'Chuggs'. But while the drama unfolded with dates and hand-holding and make-up-smudging-snogs, fans were more focussed on something else, with all of them having the same reaction to new Islander Liam.
Chuggs picked Sharon Gaffka for his date (although Sharon seems pretty happily coupled up with Aaron Francie) while Liam chose to take Faye Winter - who is currently coupled up with Brad McClelland - out on a date when he entered the villa. The pair started getting to know each other, sharing some basic details such as the fact that Liam is a 21-year-old bricklayer from Merthyr, Wales. And believe it or not, this turned out to be the biggest drama of the episode with fans taking to social media in disbelief of the fact that Liam is just 21 years old.
Fair enough, that is quite a bit of beard to have at just 21, and the fans weren't the only ones who thought so. After telling her his age Faye repeatedly told him how surprised she was, to which he replied, "I get that a lot, they say I look 30 which is a bit of an insult I think."
That relationship is off to a good start then...
