There’s only been three episodes of the latest series of Love Island, but there’s been more drama than you can shake a stick at. We’ve had a celebrity bombshell in the form of TOWIE legend Joey Essex and then Sam Taylor got dumped after just two days and another bombshell, Uma Jammeh, entered the villa.

Uma made her first appearance during a kissing challenge and the model sparked rumours that she’s got history with Ayo Odukoya when she peeled off his blindfold and took him to the Hideaway, leading Samantha Kenny to ask, “Do you two know each other?”

However, in tonight’s episode, it comes to light that Uma has previously encountered one of the boys – but it’s not Ayo.

According to The Sun, Uma realises she met Ronnie Vint before the villa. But that’s not all, as they’ve also shared a cheeky snog.

“During the tour of the villa, I was like ‘I recognise you’ but I can’t work it out and she was like ‘Do you remember the night?’ and I was like ‘Oh, yeah’,” Ronnie says in the Beach Hut, the publication reports.

Later, Uma and Ronnie chat and she asks, “So, where do we know each other from? I’m pretty sure it was you but do you remember the Euros like four years ago at Ballie Ballerson?”

Ronnie replies, ““For the final? Yeah it was! Nothing happened though, did it?”

Uma says, “I don’t think so. I don’t know. I’m not sure if we kissed or not,” to which Ronnie responds, “Yeah, we did!”

We’ll have to wait and see whether Uma’s revelation throws a spanner in the works for Ronnie’s blossoming relationship with Jess White, but it is Love Island we’re talking about so there’s guaranteed to be a kick-off.

Ronnie and Jess coupled up on day one and things have been going rather well so far, with the pair locking lips during a games of dares and again later on during a romantic moment on the terrace.

Let’s see how long their bliss lasts…
