Co Down Love Island contestant Matt MacNabb has sparked a new love interest.
The Downpatrick man was seen getting close to new islander Priya Gopaldas on Tuesday night.
This comes after he ended things with Kaz Kamwi in one of the bluntest and most straightforward dumpings ever seen on Love Island.
Matt told her: “Yeah, we’re done,” before giving any sort of explanation, which sent fans wild.
The pair later cleared the air so that their time remaining in the villa together wasn’t awkward.
And on Tuesday, the Co Down man made medical student Priya her morning coffee and said: “Welcome to the house,” which left a huge smile on her face.

She replied: “That’s the first time a boy has brought me coffee,” with islander Aaron telling her: “You look like a Chesire cat.”
“It’s small things like this… like my heart just melts,” Priya continued.
Matt was heard speaking to the other lads as he told them: “So I’m happy like. Obviously now Priya has come in and she’s beautiful, got so much in common and I feel like she’s built for me in here. So much in common.”
The pair also had a flirty workout together as the other islanders watched, with Priya later saying: “There is definitely some attraction there. I have to like shut my jaw, it was like mouth open, just like admiring the piece of art that is his body.”
Matt and Priya later had a heart-to-heart at the firepit.
“We have so much in common and my whole thing in here is like, personality is number one for me, you are obviously very beautiful, but your personality is amazing and I couldn’t speak highly enough of you.
“I am very much enjoying getting to know you and I hope it continues,” the Downpatrick man said.
“Me too. I’m liking how we are taking this like slow and steady and I feel like, I’m obviously very drawn to you and I feel like when we were stood out there, I just felt very comfortable around you and I feel that is a very good sign,” Priya replied.
Matt continued: “That is a really good sign because if you are not comfortable around somebody, you can’t really talk from the heart. You can’t talk in an intellectual level as well.”
Later on in the beach hut, the medical student told how Matt is “ticking both boxes.”
Priya said: “Matt is growing on me massively, we can have fun in the gym, but also have those deep, meaningful conversations.”
And after Matt dressed up as a Greek God for Tuesday night’s challenge, she described his body as “dreamy” as the pair had their first peck on the lips.
