New girl Georgia Townend didn’t last long in the villa, despite making a beeline for single boy Hugo—who has so far had zero romance in his four weeks on the show. After seeing her make her arrival on Wednesday night’s episode, viewers saw Georgia promptly dumped in Thursday night’s recoupling.
Most of the recoupling went as planned, with Liberty and Jake, Millie and Liam and Faye and Teddy and Aaron and Lucinda pairing off predictably. Meanwhile, new boy Tyler coupled up with Kaz and Toby sent shockwaves through the villa by picking bombshell Abigail over Chloe.
That left Chloe and Georgia the last two girls standing, with only Hugo left to pick. Shocking the Islanders and viewers alike, Hugo gave a blistering speech slamming the way Chloe had been treated and chose to couple up with her, leaving poor Georgia single despite her showing a strong romantic interest in Hugo.
Georgia on Hugo
After her dumping, Georgia said:
I think we would have been a good match; he was really eloquent, polite. I’m not sure why there wasn’t a spark. I think he holds a candle for Lucinda and Chloe… I think perhaps unless he’s honest with himself and really goes for that, he’s not going to even explore other options and he just wants to protect his friends and make sure they’re OK, which isn’t a bad thing, it’s just obviously in this instance it’s at my expense. Maybe he doesn’t really know what he’s looking for.
‘The 48 hour club’
Georgia received commiserations on Instagram from fellow Love Island 2021 stars Shannon Singh and Chuggs Wallis - who also had extremely short stays in the villa. Shannon wrote: ‘POOR GIRL! lots of love. Enjoy the ride and own it. Here if you need me ❤️’ while Chuggs said ‘Shame to see you go so soon! Came across so lovely 😚 x’.
