THE bro code took a battering in last night's Love Island as villa hunks Luca Bish and Davide Sanclimenti clashed over their desire for Gemma Owen.
The 19-year-old daughter of footballer Michael Owen has been the centre of attention so far this series, and the plot is only going to thicken with her ex-boyfriend's bombshell arrival.
More on that later though.
Italian hunk Davide's god-like chiselled face was left looking dour the previous night as cheeky chappy Luca pulled Gemma for a chat on the terrace.
Dishy fish seller Luca made Gemma aware she was a prize catch and did his best to woo her with some cheesy chat.
Bragging of his social intelligence, Davide claimed he knew exactly what was going on up there, setting the scene for a macho showdown.

What transpired was more a case of petty handbags with a side of passive aggression as they tackled their triangle in the kitchen.
Broaching the issue, Luca said: “I hear you’re p****d off that I took Gemma for a chat.”
His thick Italian accent dripping with distain, Davide replied: “I am not p****d off you took Gemma for a chat, why did you not come and tell me? At least have the balls to come and tell me, ‘Oh look Davide, I fancy her.’”
Luca made it clear his balls were amply sized for love and war.

He fired back: “It’s not that I’ve not got the balls, we are in the same villa, you’re going to see it aren’t you.”
Fortunately for Davide, he's had no shortage of admirers, and new girl Ekin-Su has been as subtle as a starved I'm A Celeb contestant at an all you can eat buffet with her feelings towards him.
The pair have bonded in the gym, with Davide crafting his perfect pecs as actress Ekin-Su drools by his side.
As he lifted her on to his shoulders, she purred: “Oh my god, you’ve impressed me, wow!”
For viewers who failed to decipher those cryptic words, she added in the Beach Hut: “Oh Davide, the workout was intense, can I get a fan, it’s getting hot in here.”
So when Luca ditched partner Paige for Gemma at the recoupling, there was only one person Davide was going to choose to fill the void left by Gemma's hollow chat.
While his face betrayed his true feelings at losing his younger partner, he complimented Ekin-Su for making him feel special.
All of this came after Liam Llewellyn walked from the villa after first losing Gemma to Davide and then realising his minutes looked numbered after two lukewarm dates with new girls Afia and Ekin-Su.

His departure meant all the other islanders lived to fight another day, however, there was zero time for them to relax as Gemma's ex is set to make an arrival.- maybe mistaking the show for MTV's Ex on the Beach.
From a split second glimpse, he looked like a hybrid of about three others lads in the villa, and it remains to be seen if their school days romance is rekindled.
