New Love Island arrival Danica Taylor has Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu worried about her connection with Jay (Picture: ITV)
Newest entry to the competition, Danica Taylor shocked the contestants as she made her first appearance during a raunchy ‘sex-sea’ challenge.
The 21-year-old dancer arrived shortly after Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su’s explosive break-up, when she lied and said she was not with Jay Younger(minutes after kissing Jay – it’s been a rollercoaster.)
Ekin-Su has repeatedly said that she did what she did while coupled up with Davide because she needs to ‘follow her gut’ and chase the connection she has with Jay.
And it appears she’s now worried that connection could be under threat by the arrival of Danica.
Shortly after meeting the bombshell, Ekin-Su pointedly told the cameras: ‘She better stay away from my man.’

And later, as Danica was meeting the boys for the first time, Ekin-Su did a contemptuous impression of the dancer swinging her hair – before spilling her drink in all the excitement.
Ekin-Su wasn’t the only one who wasn’t exactly thrilled by the new arrival, and this didn’t go unnoticed by Danica, who told cameras she thought ‘these girls have it in for me.’
It’s all part of the game for the Leicester woman however, who told the other female contestants they seemed like ‘lovely girls’ but she’s willing to step on toes to get what she wants.
‘If I do get on with him I have to follow my heart as well. So I’m gonna step on toes because you’re all coupled up and I wanna find a man and unfortunately that’s the name of the game,’ she shrugged.

‘That’s what I’m here for at the end of the day,’ she said, adding to the cameras: ‘I’m happy to rattle a few girls about.
‘I am definitely going to go in there and step on a few toes, and I am more than happy to go after what I want,’ she said.
‘I don’t really see competition, I am a very self-assured girl, I know myself, I know what I bring to the table and there are stunning girls in that villa, but I back myself.
She added: ‘There’s obviously going to be competition because there are guys in there that I like that are already interested in other girls, but I have no fear that I won’t be able to turn heads and I am happy to step on a few toes.’
It turns out it’s a good thing Danica is going in guns blazing, as within hours of her arrival the new contestant was given a new bombshell: there’s a recoupling, she gets first choice, and whichever boy is left single will be going home.

The episode ended on this brutal cliffhanger, with Danica preambling her decision by saying she hasn’t got the chance to get to know the boys properly yet and has to go ‘on face value.’
(And, sitting on the sofa, Ekin-Su looked very worried – after Gemma spilled the beans that Ekin-Su was with Jay.)
Fans will have to wait until tomorrow night’s episode to see who Danica chooses to couple up with, and what absolute drama will result from that.
Love Island continues on Saturday at 9pm on ITV.
