During the episode [19 August], viewers watched on as Teddy Soares made Faye Winter his girlfriend, Liberty Poole and Jake Cornish kind-of-broke-up, and Kaz and Tyler had a date in a courtyard.
Or more specifically, a Bridgerton-style courtyard, with a horse and carriage, an orchestral version of 'Wildest Dreams' by Taylor Swift and some dancing.
Fans on Twitter went wild for the moment, while also pointing out the slight similarity between Tyler and Bridgerton's The Duke.
"Kaz and Tyler are giving me major Bridgerton (Royalty) vibes and I love it," one person wrote, while another put, "Kaz and Tyler really getting the Bridgerton Deluxe Package. We love to see it."
Another added, "Kaz and Tyler and the Bridgerton soundtrack? Sobbing love them."
Incredibly, none other than Penelope Bridgerton, aka Nicola Coughlan, was also watching the episode, and took to Twitter to show her support. "The Bridgerton themed date on Love Island is a huge moment for me personally," Nicola wrote.
This is the TV crossover we didn't know we needed until now.
Love Island continues on ITV2 and ITVHub at 9pm. Bridgerton season 1 is available on Netflix now.
