It’s fast becoming everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure, and Love Island didn’t let us down in the drama stakes with last night’s intense couple swap episode.

Unpopular drama queen Jess Hayes managed to convince housemate Omar to ditch his loyal partner Rachel Christie in order to keep her place in the house.

Jess lost friends in the house when it emerged she had twisted the truth over her dalliance with former contestant, John Alberti. Her partner Josh then dramatically ditched her for pretty newbie, Naomi.

She then went on a desperate campaign to win over the boys of the house, targeting Omar and Chris in one-on-one chats.

During the intense ‘couple swap’ session, viewers let out a collective ‘awww’ as bad boy Luis chose to save friend Lauren in order to keep her positive influence in the house.

Rachel was then forced to pack her bags as she revealed she couldn’t wait to return to her son in the outside world.

Meanwhile, newly ‘official’ couple Hannah and Jon achieved a Love Island first by appearing to have sex in the house’s secret hideaway.

Audiences were left covering their eyes (and their ears!) as their lustful moments were played out on screen.

Prior to the shows launch, an ITV boss told The Mirror that the reality series wouldn’t be filled with romps and raunchy scenes.

They said: "How raunchy will it get? It depends on them but it's not about that. What we are looking for is romance. I don't really want to show that kind of stuff.

"It is not the act that is interesting it's the reaction. That's the story. It's on at 9pm, not 11pm. Showing people shagging is pretty boring.

"I don't think that's an interesting way of telling a story. There are obviously compliance rules but over and beyond that it's whether it's right to show it and I don't want to show that, there is no joy in that and I want to show joyful stories."
