She set her sights on Ron Hall when she entered the Love Island villa. 

And Zara Lackenby-Brown seems more determined than ever to lock down the financial advisor after pulling his partner Lana Jenkins for a chat.

After her date with Ron, Zara asked Lana: ‘So how are things going with Ronnie?’ to which Lana replied: ‘We’ve had a good couple of days together, it’s so early to be honest, so fair game.’

Zara responded: ‘Cool, I appreciate that to be fair because if you were like, “You know what, he’s mine paws off” I’d be like, “Right, it’s game on.”‘ 

Later that evening, Ron – who admitted his date with Lana had left his head spinning –  debriefed Lana as he confessed: ‘I think I’ll have conversations with her and get to know her.

‘My head is where it was before, it’s just another girl’s been thrown in the mix to have conversations with and see if it’s better than what we have…’

Zara wasn’t the only bombshell making her move, with David Salako trying to crack on with Tanya Manhenga after their date. 

After complimenting another one of her outfit choices, Tanya said: ‘You’re going to get tired of telling me.’ 

Upping the ante, David then said: ‘No more compliments, just kisses… For sure, it could happen tonight?’ 

David went on to add: ‘I feel like we’ve got a connection now already…’

Meanwhile, Ron later found himself in the middle of another love triangle when Tanyel Revan pursued him after growing jealous of Kai Fagan flirting with other girls.

The 26-year-old hair stylist was seething as Kai got to know Anna-May Robey while being coupled up with her.

Tanyel pulled Kai for a chat to which he asked: ‘What are you feeling about today?’

Tanyel replied: ‘You didn’t do anything wrong, but I actually got really jealous and I don’t like it.’

Kai shot back: ‘The fact that you’ve told me that you were jealous is the first intel that I’ve actually got that you actually like me.’

Tanyel said: ‘I know and this is what I wanted to talk to you about, it really annoyed me that you spoke to someone else, that obviously shows me that I like you…’

Following their conversation, Kai headed to the Beach Hut and said: ‘I think she’s realised that it’s not going to be as plain sailing as she thought it was gonna be, I think she’s realised that she actually really likes me.’

Tanyel replies: ‘You didn’t do anything wrong, but I actually got really jealous and I don’t like it’

But Tanyel decided to focus her attentions elsewhere, and following her conversation with Kai, she took Ron for a chat. 

He asked her where her head’s at, and Tanyel replied: ‘Two can play that game, my top two would be you and Kai.’

Asking Tanyel about Kai, Ron said: ‘Are you telling me you’re bored of Kai now?’ to which she replied: ‘No I didn’t say that…’

Ron replied: ‘But you just want to spice things up a bit? Interesting.’

Later in the Beach Hut Tanyel said: ‘I feel like Ron brings out a different side of me, maybe more of the feistier side which is probably better in some ways. 

She then admitted: ‘I want to flirt with Ron all day and all night.’

Elsewhere in Thursday’s episode, things are set to be turned up a notch as the islanders take on a steamy challenge.

The singletons will be seen going head-to-head in a game of non-alcoholic beer pong, where they are dared to lock lips with islanders of their choice. 

Zara and David had the chance to lay their cards out as they give out some kisses during the game, while existing couples are shaken up.

During the game, which mixes dares and beer pong, Tanyel was first up and dared to snog the Islander she thinks is boyfriend material.

Anna-May was then dared to snog the Islander she fancies the most, and with the spark appearing to have died down between her and partner Haris – she could be set to ruffle some feathers with her choice.

Meanwhile, new bombshell Zara was dared to kiss both the cheeks of the Islander she thinks is the most two-faced, after just a day inside the villa.

Later, as the Islanders debriefed on the night’s antics, it seemed some aren’t quite as happy with re-capping the night’s events as others…

Producers will no doubt be hoping the drama brings in more viewers after there was an average of just 900,000 viewers for Wednesday’s episode. 

It follows on from a disappointing launch show that pulled in an average of just over 1million TV viewers as new host Maya Jama made her debut and a new host of singletons stepped out.

The first episode of the winter series saw an average of 1.2million viewers watch the latest batch of Islanders enter the South African villa, overnight figures showed.

It was a staggering 1.2million down from 2022’s summer debut episode, which saw an average of 2.4million TV viewers tune in at the time.
