Caroline Flack: Love Island couples will be tested
The presenter said she ‘felt love, like steam, coming off’ Amber and Michael.
Love Island host Caroline Flack has said the next few days will be “drama week” in the villa as the relationships are put to the test.
The presenter said seeing the couples having to make tough decisions is all part of the fun, citing Amber Gill and Michael Griffiths as one couple whose budding romance needs to be challenged.
She said on the Love Island: The Morning After podcast: “[This] week is gonna be drama week.
“Drama for me is just the testing of the relationship, so it is good to see.
“That’s the whole point, is just testing the relationships.
“So when I say drama I don’t mean screaming and shouting and arguing and that kind of stuff, it’s the decisions they [the Islanders] have to make, I like all that.”

She said of Michael and Amber: “When I was in the villa, I felt love, like steam, coming off them – but they need to be tested.
“They do, like all the couples.
“They can’t just sort of roam in and win and just stay in the back, on a back-burner, something’s got to happen, right?”
Flack also told hosts Kem Cetinay and Arielle Free she thought Lucie Donlan would have left the villa when Joe Garratt was dumped.
“I watched it live, because I was there when he was (dumped) and [Joe and Elma Pazar] had 15 minutes to say goodbye. Lucie was crying her heart out and I just wanted him to say, ‘Come with me’.
“I think she was waiting for him to say it. She wanted him to say ‘Come with me’ – she would’ve gone. She loves him – they like each other.”
A fresh episode of Love Island: The Morning After is available the morning after each show (Monday – Saturday) hosted by Kem Cetinay and Arielle Free on all podcast platforms.
