Chuggs or Brad, we still don’t know (Picture: ITV)
In a move we possibly all should have seen coming, Sunday’s episode of Love Island teased fans yet again with a cliff hanger ending as new girl Rachel Finni prepared to choose between Chuggs Wallis and Brad McClelland.
Just as Chloe Burrows’ decision was delayed from Tuesday’s episode to Wednesday, which saw her choose to couple up with Aaron Francis, thereby unknowingly evicting Shannon Singh from the villa, Rachel was tasked with choosing between Chuggs and Brad after 24 hours on the show, this time knowing the loser would be sent packing.
However, an entertaining episode that took in foot fetishes (again), a bit of Kaz and Toby relationship pondering and a slime-fuelled James Bond challenge still left viewers frustrated as the credits rolled just ahead of Rachel making her pick.
Celebrities were fuming along with us, as BBC radio DJ Nick Grimshaw commented: ‘That was a WASTE OF TIME! I came round to friends house for that decision, will be sending my cab receipt to @itv2 for a reimbursement.’
Past Islanders were also due to be disappointed, with season five’s Amber Gill tweeting a couple of minutes ahead of the show’s climax: ‘Honestly if it cuts off right before Rachel says the name I will scream… again.’
We hope her neighbours have ear plugs.
Some clearly hoped the extended episode, which ran to 75 minutes, would guarantee the conclusion of the new coupling up, but that was not to be the case.
Fans were also very invested in Rachel’s choice, as the luxury travel specialist was wooed by both Chuggs and Brad but was keen to try and work out who was the more genuine and was using her purely as a way to stay in the competition.
A pretty tall order in a single 24-hour period, but it seems fans were backing Brad over Chuggs, despite the former seemingly struggling a little.
However, Brad was crowned the sexiest wannabe 007 in the James Bond-themed Undercover Love challenge, which saw the boys strip to thongs, perform a sexy dance for their partner and undo the ribbons tying their girl to a board with their teeth, all the while being covered in slime and powder.

They then had to carry the girls to vibrating mats and make a cocktail of their choice before sealing things with a kiss.
It remains to be seen if that was enough to turn Rachel’s head, as the Islanders like to say.
Love Island continues Monday at 9pm on ITV2.
