Amy Hart told Curtis Pritchard he had made her feel “worthless” and like “an utter mug” in dramatic scenes in the latest episode of Love Island.

The couple’s relationship has hit a rocky patch after Curtis confessed that while Amy was at Casa Amor, his head was turned by new girl Jourdan Raine.

Amy was distraught when she first found out they had kissed and that Curtis has considered coupling up with Jourdan, saying she was “someone’s back-up plan yet again”.

However, the anger kicked in when Curtis told her the main problem between them was that she didn’t trust in their relationship enough.

“I’m so angry and he’s not f****** sleeping in my bed tonight,” she told the other girls.

Amy later approached Curtis for a chat and told him: “I was coming back here to tell you that I loved you.”

“I feel like I deserve better than to be basically cheated on,” she said.

“You have made me feel like an utter mug.”

Brushing off his apologies, she told him: “If you cared about me you wouldn’t have done that.”

She later breaks down in tears, saying she had thought Curtis was her “future”.

It was also a rough night for Amber Gill and Michael Griffiths, whose romance was also rocked by this week’s recoupling.

Michael chose to pair up with Joanna Chimonides, leaving Amber single, and the trio all came face to face for the first time in Wednesday’s show.

Amber looked stunned as she returned from Casa Amor to find Michael had moved on, although she told host Caroline Flack she had had a “sneaky feeling” that he might have.

She told Flack she was pleased she had remained unattached during her stay at the other villa, explaining: “Because I’m a loyal human being, that’s the way that I am, that’s what I wanted to do.”

Amber looked unimpressed when Joanna suggested the pair would have a chat at some point, but later in the episode she received a text message with the hashtag “#storminateacup”, saying that she and Joanne were being sent on a night out together.

The dramatic recoupling episode on Tuesday was a high hit with fans.

It peaked with 4.3 million viewers, which is the ITV2 show’s highest peak audience ever.

The episode was also the most watched programme for 16 to 34-year-olds so far this year, and Love Island’s biggest ever 16 to 34 audience.
