Fans call for Tommy and Molly-Mae to win Love Island after emotional reunion
The episode saw Molly-Mae break down in tears after she feared Tommy had dumped her.
Love Island viewers were in tears as they watched Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague reunite in the most dramatic episode of the series yet.
In Tuesday’s recoupling, which saw two couples crash and burn and another couple put at serious risk, Tommy and Molly-Mae both opted to stay with each other.
The boys and girls had been separated for several days, with the girls residing in Casa Amor with six new male islanders and the boys in the main villa with six new female contestants.
The original islanders had to decide whether to couple up with somebody new or stick with their original partner.
Molly-Mae and Tommy had both worried that the other would have moved on with somebody else, and both were relieved to see they had chosen to stay loyal to each other.
Standing at the fire pit in the main villa, Tommy – holding Molly-Mae’s cuddly toy Ellie Belly – told the islanders and host Caroline Flack that he had missed her.
He said: “What we have is so special, it’d be a shame to throw it away.”
Molly-Mae then walked into the villa and fell to the floor crying.
She said through tears: “I thought he’d changed his mind, because Ellie Belly wasn’t on the bed I thought he’d changed his mind.”
Fans of the show were in tears too, and many took to Twitter to share their emotions.
