After forgetting his lyrics the week before, the third live show proved the end for broadcasting legend Martin Bashir.

We're not going to lie we're most excited to see the Love Island 2018 stars take part in the competition. It's well documented that Samira Mighty was a broadway star and Eyal Booker was a member of a pop band but we can't wait to see how Wes Nelson and Zara McDermott do.

Sam Thompson's girlfriend only recently shared a video of herself singing and fans couldn't believe how incredible her voice is.

She wrote alongside the video: "First time I’ve ever had the confidence to post something like this. (plus this song is lowwww haha).

"I used to lock myself in my studio for hours every Sunday writing my own music or recording covers. I tried this song out today, if you don’t know it, it’s Blessed by Daniel Caesar 🖤 I get goosebumps when I hear it, it’s one of my favourite songs".

WATCH: wait, what?! Rylan Clark-Neal was in Harry Potter?!

Earlier this month, ITV bosses released an explosive trailer teasing which celebs would be taking part, as well as revealing that Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger will join Simon on the judging panel.

The celebrity hopefuls will be leaving their comfort zones at the door as they head out to LA and battle it out to make it through the first stage. During the live shows they will then return to London and hopefully win a life changing record deal.
