Co Down islander Matthew MacNabb has cleared the air with Kaz following their dramatic break up, and has avoided ending up in the bottom six ahead of tonight’s dumping.
On Thursday evening, the Downpatrick man ended things with Kaz in probably the bluntest and most straightforward dumping in the show’s history.
Taking her to one side, Matt simply said: “Yeah, we’re done” – three words that went viral on Twitter and left islander Kaz stunned.
It came after the villa found out Kaz told former flame Tyler the door to their romance rekindling was “slightly ajar.” Despite ending things, Kaz and Matt have continued to share a bed, which has shocked others on the show.
Taking Kaz aside for a chat on Sunday night’s episode, Toby said: “I’m looking at your situation… I’m thinking you and Tyler are brilliant. But on the other side, I’m thinking, Matt’s here, you’re in a bed with him, how?
“Do you just grab him, and do you talk about it? You’ve got what you wanted, you’ve got Tyler, and now you can progress with that.”
Kaz replied: “So you think I should pull Matt aside for a conversation and say we can still be friends?”
“Yeah, it’s a lot of weight off your shoulders, as much as it is for him,” Toby added.
Worrying that the chat wouldn’t go well, Kaz headed over to chat with Matt after Toby’s encouragement and the pair moved over to the fire pit for their first conversation since Matt ended things.
“It’s always a serious chat by the fire pit,” Matt joked.
Wishing to clear the air between them, Kaz explained: “I just don’t want things to be awkward. For me, going into bed, it’s been a bit uncomfortable, a bit awkward, I don’t know how it’s been for you.
“Because we’re in the villa with each other 24/7, I just want some level of, even if it’s just us being civil,” she continued.
Matt agreed: “I’m 100% on board with that, I have no ill feelings whatsoever. When a situation’s over for me, it’s over. When I see you and Tyler together, it’s such a strong connection compared to what I felt our situation was. So I feel it’s went the way it was meant to be.”
Later in the episode, islanders were transported to the Island Vibes Club for a day out, when Laura Whitmore emerged and the mood changed.
She revealed that six of them were in danger of leaving the island as a result of scoring lowest in the public vote. One girl and one boy will be picked from the six, however, the islanders themselves will decide who’s going.
Abi, Kaz, Mary, Dale, Jake and Tyler were announced as being the vulnerable contestants, while NI’s Matt MacNabb remained safe.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
