The couples have finally began to make some real connections, from romance to bromance and the girls having each others back, as we enter into the third week of Love Island.
Things have started to get a little messy, as Chloe stole Kaz’s man and Rachel got her claws out and warned she was ready to fight for new guy Teddy.
On Monday night (12 June), Teddy was given his first chance to couple up with the girl he wanted, the girl left single would be dumped from the villa.

So, who coupled up on Monday night and who was dumped from the ITV2 show? This is what you need to know.
What changes were made to the couples?
Following a week of cracking on, fighting back and getting to know the newest contestants, there was bound to be a significant shake up to the couples.
New girls Millie and Lucinda caused heads to turn, as Welsh singleton Liam, 21, took an instant interest in Millie, while Brad and Lucinda kissed on the first evening of her arrival.
This left Faye, Liam’s partner, effectively dumped. Liam and Millie agreed to “respect” Faye, deciding not to kiss in front of her and wait until they were officially ‘coupled up’ before sharing a bed.
Kaz has also found herself single, as Toby dumped her for Chloe after a steamy kiss in the couple’s challenge.
This has led to many of the girls feeling wary of Chloe, including Faye, who shouted at her to “shut up” and told her there was good reason why other girls were talking about her.
Then came Teddy, a senior financial consultant. He entered the villa on Sunday night and went on four speed dates.
The contestants got to pick who would be his date, ultimately deciding Faye, Kaz, Rachel and Sharon were “the most single” of the coupled up girls.
Rachel made it clear she was willing to go to any lengths to have Toby choose her, as Hugo received a text which said Hugo had to choose who he would date, the girl left single would immediately leave the villa
So, who re-coupled and who changed their partner on Monday night?
On Monday night, less than 24 hours after entering the villa, Teddy had to be ready to choose his new flame.
Many fans of the show took to Twitter to express their hopes that he would choose Kaz, but he was left until last in the recoupling, leaving him with only two options.
The new couples are:
Jake and Liberty (together since day one)
Toby and Chloe
Liam and Millie
Brad and Lucinda
Hugo then chose Sharon, but only as friends
Aaron chose Kaz, also as a friendship
This left only Faye and Rachel for Teddy to chose from….
Speaking about his choice, Teddy said: “I would like to couple up with this girl because from the moment I met her my mind was completely blown.
“Her confidence. Every time I speak to her, I feel as if she has blown me away and kept me on my toes and that is super important to me.”
He then chose Faye, and Rachel was ultimately dumped from the villa.
When is the next recoupling
The next expected re-shuffle is not until next Sunday (18 July), but that does not mean there isn’t more shock recouplings in store.
Love Island airs on ITV2 every weeknight and Sunday at 9pm, you can also watch on the ITV Hub or catch up on BritBox.
