Love Island: Bombshell Danica chooses Luca as her partner

According to reports, Love Island producers told Danica Taylor, the newest bombshell from Love Island, to’stir up the pot’ between Gemma Owen (solid couple) and Luca Bish (solid couple).

The 21-year old entered the Spanish villa Friday night (June 17, 2017) and was given the first pick of the boys for Sunday’s recoupling.

Leicester dancer Danica shocked viewers when, despite being given the chance to choose a single boy, she decided to steal Gemma’s 23-year-old Luca.

Danica picked Luca and Luca shook their heads. Gemma had to return Davide Sanclimenti, her former partner.

Remi Lambert was single after the recoupling, and he was eventually dumped from the island.

MailOnline reports that ITV bosses convinced Danica and Luca to get married in a bid for drama and suspense.

An insider at the show told the outlet : “Danica is a brilliant bombshell, she’s beautiful, confident, and willing to do whatever it takes to find love in the villa.

“Producers wanted Gemma to steal Luca, which she did.”

They said whilst she could have chosen singletons Remi or Davide, she “Planted” with producers to create a dramatic new storyline.

Producers apparently wanted to put Gemma and Luca’s relationship to the test.

A spokesperson for ITV however told the publication that this was not true and that islanders make their own decisions about their relationships.

Danica tried and failed to turn Luca’s head, as the pair were sent on a date outside of the villa.

Producers organised a romantic beach picnic for Luca and Danica but the fishmonger later admitted that his heart was set on Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma.

Speaking in the Beach Hut, Luca said: “Although Danica is very attractive, I don’t think she’s Gemma.

“F**ing hell what the hell is going on with me?”

Later that evening, Luca decided not to share a bed in Danica’s room but to go home on his own. Gemma slept in a bed with Davide, to the surprise of some.

One person posted this tweet: “No way Gemma slept in bed with Davide.”

Another fan wrote: “Wait why did Gemma choose to sleep with Davide while Luca sleeps outside,”While a third said: “PLEASE not gemma sleeping in the bed instead of with luca.”

Danica previously stated that her type was dark hair with light eyes. She stated that she would love to be with someone with a tan, and that she prefers an older man.

She confessed that she has never dated someone her age, which led some boys to believe that her perfect math could have been an Italian stallion Davide.

Tonight’s Love Island episode will air at 9 p.m. on ITV2.
