Love Island’s Brad and Chuggs face axe – and bombshell new girl Rachel will choose who

LOVE Island ended on a huge twist this evening, with Brad McClelland and newbie Chuggs Wallis facing the axe – and a bombshell new girl choosing who will stay.

Stunning Rachel Finni entered the villa right before the credits rolled, receiving a text that explained she had 24 hours to choose between the two hunks.

It followed the first recoupling ceremony of the series, which gave the girls the power and left two boys single.

In a tense decision, Chloe Burrows was the last Islander to choose who to couple up with – and she caused shockwaves when she chose to enter a friendship couple with Hugo Hammond.

She’d previously expressed an interest in Chuggs, and had even been getting to know Brad earlier in the week.

But rather than choose between them she opted to give PE teacher Hugo the opportunity to find love.

It came after Faye Winter, who he’d previously been getting to know, made the difficult decision to ditch him for new boy Liam Reardon.

Viewers at home were gripped by Chloe’s sweet decision – and further excited when Rachel made her entrance.

Another agreed: “I’m loving these twists – yes Rachel!”

A third added: “Chloe picking Hugo has made my respect go up for her so much.”

Whoever is dumped from the Island will be the second of the series, with Shannon Singh the first casualty of the year when she was sent packing after just 48 hours.

It came after Chloe entered the villa as a bombshell late arrival and stole Shannon’s partner Aaron Francis.

Fans will have to wait until Sunday’s episode of the show to find out who was dumped from the Island after Rachel’s decision, with the show airing Unseen Bits from the week tomorrow night.
