Greg O’Shea?

Even better, Greg seemed to genuinely like and respect Amber, with no ulterior motives lurking in the background. They appeared to have a laugh, and humour is a rare enough thing in the Majorcan villa.

If you reckoned Love Island was an unending succession of women calling out men for not treating them the way they deserved, you’d be dead right. Yet Greg was above all of this. He was himself, quietly self-possessed, with no need to showboat. Your mammy would love him.

And who doesn’t love a Mammy’s boy?

Meanwhile. on ITV’s Love Island….

The reality-TV gods must have praised the heavens when Maura declared as her opening gambit: “The things I’d do to him.” She could hear herself screaming his name, she admitted.

He gave her the “fanny flutters”. “I wish he was eating me,” she added decisively, in case anyone was left in any doubt about her intentions.

…It appears to be the first time the following has occurred to people: that just because a woman talks freely and comfortably about sex, that just because she’s partial to a bit of innuendo, it doesn’t mean she owes anything to anyone.

The “all- mouthers” aren’t obliged to prove their point by following it up with action.

Tom’s personality prolapse was complete a day later, when he, to use the vernacular, totally showed his arse.

In true beta-male fashion, Tom put Maura’s assertiveness down to being a bit extra. “She’s too loud, attention-seeking and a bit cringe,” he said, but not before kissing and making up with her.

If you’re a confident woman with a dating life, you will surely know the drill by now: to these Milquetoasts, who like their girls “ladylike” – read: pliable – it’s not them. It’s never them. It’s you.

She has barely been in the villa a wet fortnight, but Maura has already given toxic masculinity a perfectly manicured two fingers.

Last night.

Love Island on ITV2

Maura Higgins was sure to make an impact on the ITV2 show as she left fans blushing with her crass comments about boxer Tommy Fury – as fans admitted they could not believe her language and saucy quips.

The 28-year-old Irish beauty appeared extremely excited when she laid eyes on the hunky sportsman, 20, as she made comments about him ‘eating her’, ‘destroying him‘ and having ‘fannyy flutters’, while he spoke about ‘climaxing‘.
