Four contestants will be dumped from Love Island in the next episode of the ITV2 dating programme.

In scenes that will air on Thursday, the remaining singletons will learn of the culling via a text message, and that two contestants, Georgia Steel and Wes Nelson, are exempt from elimination.

In the midst of a pool party at the Majorcan villa, Ellie Brown receives a text message that calls for all islanders to gather around the fire pit “immediately”.

Josh Denzel then receives a message, which reads: “Islanders – the public have been voting for their favourite couple. Those with the fewest votes risk being dumped from the Island tonight.

“As Georgia and Wes are single, they are not included in this vote.”

Viewers will also see Wes continue in his attempt to win back the affections of Megan Barton Hanson, with whom he had enjoyed a brief fling before he spent time in Casa Amor, and before she moved on with new boy Alex Miller.

In the Beach Hut, Alex says: “I am suspicious of the Meg and Wes situation.

“There’s something going on and I need to find out what it is.

“If I’m right in what I’m thinking, it’s deceitful. I need to talk to Megan straight up.

“I’m not going to sit back and take it.”

He then tells Charlie Brake, another new addition to the villa: “There’s something sly here, something is going on. I’ve just seen Wes and Megan come back from wherever… I’m putting two and two together and I’m getting four.”

Megan is also seen confessing to Samira Mighty that she still has feelings for Wes, and then she tells Alex that she still finds Wes attractive and funny.

Alex tells her: “I know when someone is checking someone out. I’m not a jealous person, I don’t think that’s 100% done.”

Wes and Georgia are then given the chance to take two people on dates, and he chooses Darylle Sargeant – who is coupled up with Adam Collard – and Megan.

In the Beach Hut, Alex says: “I want this date to go awful. I want the rain, storms, the wind, shit food, shit wine. Just have a rubbish time!”

He later confronts Wes over the date, telling him: “I know you took her out today. I wanted you to be a man, tell me you were going to take her out. Just tell me and I’ll be fine with it.”

Georgia manages to ruffle some feathers too, as she chooses to date new boy Jack Fowler, who is coupled up with original contestant Laura Anderson.

Georgia tells Laura: “I feel like at the end of the day, there’s not a big batch to pick from is there? I’m not going to pick the easy route, that’s not me.”

Laura replies: “Don’t say there’s not a big batch to pick from because that’s not true.”

“I’m not going to comfort the girl because she’s taking the guy I’m seeing out on a date,” Laura later says in the Beach Hut.

“I’m nice but I’m not that nice. Give me a break! I don’t believe that Georgia doesn’t fancy Jack. I think she fancies Jack. 100%.”

On the date, Jack admits that Georgia could “spin my head”, and that the experience with her has been an “eye opener”.

Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
