The Love Island villa has seen its fair share of dramatic bust ups and explosive arguments – including a furious row about a toastie…
We’re just weeks away from the return of Love Island and the explosive drama the show inevitably always brings.
The 2022 series will see singletons retuning to the villa in Majorca on Monday 6 June – with Laura Whitmore returning as host and work well under way getting the house ready for the next batch of hopefuls.
While a few lucky contestants have actually found true love on the show, Love Island became the huge phenomenon it is today arguably because of its fiery arguments and shocking twists – some of which have occasionally proved controversial and resulted in thousands of complaints.
Here’s a look back over some of the most biggest fights in Love Island history ahead of the new series starting next month.

Malin and Terry’s relationship was turbulent to say the least – they even had a row over a toastie at one point.
However, they soon entered a proper relationship which dramatically ended when Malin was dumped from the villa and Terry proceeded to get with bombshell Emma-Jane Woodhams days later.
Malin later returned for one final showdown with Terry, which was all topped off when he accidentally walked away with Malin’s sunglasses instead of his own.
Kady McDermott and Malia Arkian (series 2)
Malia was the first contestant on Love Island to enter the villa and then be removed on the same day.
During her very brief stint on the show, she was involved in a huge showdown with Kady after picking her partner Scott for a date.
When they returned from said date, Kady “accidentally” spilled wine of Malia’s leg, sparking an explosive confrontation which quickly got physical.
Theo Campbell and Jonny Mitchell (series 3)
Runner Theo Campbell wasn’t in the villa for long but he was still responsible for a handful of iconic moments which have gone down in the show’s history.
During one of the most dramatic recouplings Love Island has had, Theo recouped with Tyla Carr which prompted Johnny to call him a ‘b*****d* and the pair almost came to blows at the firepit.
Days later, when Johnny was dumped from the island, he angered half the villa when he dropped this classic line: “I think if Tyla really liked him she should go as well really”.
Georgia Steel and Ellie Brown (series 4)
The fallout from Georgia’s kiss with Laura Anderson’s man Jack Fowler rumbled on for days, despite her insisting repeatedly that she’s “loyal” throughout the fourth series.
Georgia’ behaviour later brought the worst out of fellow contestant Ellie, who proceeded to swear at Georgia during a particularly heated exchange about her loyalty.
Maura Higgins and Tom Walker (series 5)
Things were going well between Maura and Tom, and the pair were just minutes away from spending the night in the Hideaway together.
However, their blossoming romance quickly went south when Tom an off-the-cuff remark to the other boys, saying that it would be good to see if Maura was “all mouth”.
A disgusted Maura overheard, confronted him and then put him in his place as Tom attempted to salvage the situation.
Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames (series 5)
Just two days after asking Anna to be his girlfriend, Jordan decided pursue new contestant India -a decision which led to one of the most furious showdowns ever seen on the show.
As Jordan tried to wriggle out of the situation, Anna tore him to shreds, screaming “two days!” and telling him: “No wonder you’ve never had a girlfriend”.
Faye Winter and Teddy Soares (series 7)
After a movie night which showed what Teddy got up to in Casa Amor, Faye exploded and screamed at Teddy in front of the entire villa while he remained calm.
The incident was one of the most controversial in the show’s history, with more than 25,000 viewers making complaints to Ofcom.
