Love Island welcomed new bombshell Scott to the villa in tonight’s episode

New bombshell Scott made quite the entrance on the Love Island villa in tonight’s episode. Scott caused a stir before even stepping foot in the villa by taking Jess on a date after she won the ‘She’s A Keeper’ challenge.

Following the win, Jess received a text about her date, much to the dismay of Sammy who she is currently coupled up with. Sammy tried to keep his cool when hearing the news about the date, responding: “I’ve got options” and told Jess to have a nice date…in a salty manner.

As viewers were introduced to the new bombshell Scott, he said: “I’m looking to go into the villa and cause a bit of trouble. I’d definitely say the girls’ heads are going to turn”. As the date began the couple seemed to hit it off with conversation immediately flowing between the pair.

When discussing what they do for a living, Jess joked: “I think I’m WAG material” to which Scott responded: “I fully agree”. When asked who she was coupled up with Jess said her and Sammy had been a smooth ride, and they were on the same page. However, as the date drew to a close the pair left holding hands after sharing a drink and some laughs.
