The explosive entrance of new boy Sam Bird has shaken the villa, after he attacked Adam's dating record within minutes of arriving on the island. The Northern personal trainer has recently jumped to his fourth love interest since he landed in the villa two weeks ago, and left Welsh solicitor Rosie for flirty new girl and government adviser Zara. Understandably, Rosie has been worried it might spell the end of her time on the island and has been plotting ways she can retain her place but she's face competition from fan favourite Samira. Since day one, Samira has been coupled up with unlucky-in-love Alex but he recently shared a kiss with new girl Ellie so it looks like their relationship of convenience might be coming to an end.
Samira and Rosie are close friends in the villa, and had spoken about what it might be like if a new boy entered the house admitting that they would both try their luck with him. In the diary room yesterday, Rosie said: "Sam and I are obviously both very excited that a new boy is coming in, we think it’s about time, we’ve been waiting long enough. Obviously there’s just one so it’s very bittersweet for me and Sam, because we are best friends in here. We’ve both agreed that whatever happens we’re going to be happy for each other." Clearly, their friendship doesn't mean that much to Rosie though as she grabbed new boy Sam immediately and sat down for a chat with him dominating the conversation even when Samira tried to delve a little deeper into a chat she was trying to have with the personal trainer.
Sam goes first and steals Zara. Leaves Adam to choose between Rosie and Samira. Sends Rosie home. Imagine. The scenes. #LoveIsland— Ed Karim (@ed_rahim) June 21, 2018
Sam happily named his top four when asked, and admitted that he fancied Samira, Georgia, Ellie and Zara which led fans to wonder if this could be the man the musical theatre star was waiting for. Unfortunately, though, Rosie has monopolised his time so far and even interrogated him about why she wasn't one of his most fancied girl in the villa. Fans slammed her for being 'desperate' and not giving Samira a fair shot but the two might be wasting their energy with him if tonight's preview is anything to go by. Sam can be seen telling the camera that he has no plans on playing it safe, because that's not what the show's about, causing viewers to speculate he might choose Zara or Ellie and foil Adam and Alex's plans completely. Well, nobody can say Adam doesn't have it coming.
