Love Island fans ‘so happy’ after Gemma saves Manchester’s Italian bombshell Davide in shock recoupling

Love Island fans are ‘so happy’ after Gemma saved Davide, from Manchester, in a shock recoupling on Sunday evening. At the start of the show, (June 19), contestants at the Spanish villa were standing around the firepit as the girls chose which boy they wanted to couple up with, leaving one boy single and dumped from the island.

Gemma Owen, 19, had originally been paired up with Luca, but he was snatched from her hands by Danica Taylor, 21, leaving her forced to choose another male contestant. She opted to save Davide Sanclimenti, 27 a business owner who is from Rome but now living in Manchester, who she had previously been coupled up with earlier in the series.

Viewers were quick to point out how the shock decision ‘made their night’. @ luciemccarthy07 wrote “THANK YOU GEMMA IM SO GLAD DAVIDE STAYIN”, as @ellamenapeecue tweeted “GEMMA SAVED DAVIDE OMG IM SO HAPPY.”

Following the recoupling, Gemma’s previous partner Luca said he ‘wanted to stay true’ to himself and admitted he wanted to sleep in a separate bed to new partner Danica.
