Throughout this series of Love Island, it’s felt like the boys have been the ones with all the power. After a particularly spicy Casa Amor (thanks series 11 producers), which saw a number of the boys playing the field before returning to the villa and then, for the most part, returning to their original couples, girls like Mimii Ngulube and Uma Jammeh have been left confused and hurt.

But Monday (8 July) night’s show proved to the girls that good things were on the horizon when bombshells Reuben Collins and Josh Sunday Oyinsan arrived in the villa and made a beeline for Mimii and Uma.

But who is Reuben, the man who says his dating app profile would read, “I just want peace, no problems”?
