10 Dramatic Moments You Forgot Happened During Love Island 2017

Let's look back at some of the best moments from series three...

1. Can you remember how they all coupled-up on the first day?

Kem Cetinay chose Chloe Crowhurst, Amber Davies was with Harley Judge, Montana Brown picked Dom Lever, Marcel Somerville teamed with Olivia Attwood and finally Sam Gowland paired with Camilla Thurlow.

How different things could have been…

2. Who could forget the moment Marcel came clean with his big secret?

Marcel telling the other islanders that he used to be in Blazin’ Squad kept viewers entertained for days – and was also responsible for some of the best Love Island memes we’ve ever seen.

3. Who else had forgotten that Olivia first had eyes for Sam?

After the continuous drama that Chris and Olivia’s romance has given us, it’s strange to think how cute Sam and Olivia used to be.

In fact, Caroline Flack predicted a winning couple in the making, before Liv got ‘The Ick’.

4. And speaking of forgotten romances, remember Chris and Chloe?!

The term ‘romance’ is being used lightly, admittedly, but there was a moment in the hot tub that looked like it could have lead to something…

5. The big debate that swept the nation. 

We are, of course, referring to Camilla and Jonny’s row over feminism.

Regardless of who you sided with, it was certainly an unexpected turn of events and a discussion that the Love Island producers probably NEVER expected.

6. Marcel’s first bromance can never be forgotten.

Harley was dumped from the island very early on (sob), but the tears shed by the Blazin’ Squad star during his departure remains one of the cutest moments of the series.

7. Amber’s little white lie…

Amber and Kem became an item and, of course, won the series. But we wouldn’t blame you for forgetting some of their earlier dramz.

Remember the big ‘truth or lie’ debate that involved Amber hinting to Kem that Chris had made a move on her? It sparked an initial divide between Chris and Kem.

And the world was given THAT picture…

Thankfully the lads made it through and actually developed, arguably, the most loving relationship in the villa. Whatever would we have done without this gem?

8. Chris and Sam went head-to-head over Olivia… 

It was the first heated argument of the series, with Sam proving how ‘not bothered’ he was by pulling Chris up for getting close to Olivia.

Again the boys proved the power of the bromance by moving past their issues, whereas Olivia and Chris’s journey ended up being anything but plain sailing.

9. The next shouting match was between Olivia and Montana…

We first saw Olivia lose her temper when she screamed ‘I’m not being confrontational!’ in Montana’s face. Right then.

10. And finally, we’d almost forgotten that ‘Samtana’ gave things a go.

After being pied by Olivia for not having enough sexual chemistry, Montana and Sam gave it a shot. Sadly for Sam it ended up backfiring on him again. Bless him.


Things changed A LOT in the seven weeks of the series. And we loved each and every moment.

We can only hope that the brand new series, starting on 4th June, brings us even more…
