Love Island fans were quick to defend Ron Hall on Thursday night, after Olivia Hawkins was reduced to tears by a brutal comment he made.
The episode kicked off with a clip of Ron’s behaviour in Casa Amor, in which his relationship with Lana was put to the test by a series of stunning bombshells.
As the clip began to play, Lana sheepishly admitted: “I’m nervous, my heart’s going.”
The gathered Islanders were then shown a clip of Ron encouraging fellow islanders Tom Clare and Kai Fagan to stray from their partners and explore other connections in Casa Amor, something which didn’t go down well with Olivia.
“I already knew he was a fake friend, I don’t need him,” she boldly declared while clearly hurt.
However, it was a comment made by Ron that truly struck a chord with Olivia, as he suggested Tom was never actually interested in her, something which made the Islander burst into tears.
The girls clearly didn’t agree as they looked on in horror, but many fans at home felt he was making a valid point and that Tom was “playing the game” rather than pursuing a true romance with Olivia.
One wrote: “Ron getting exposed but he was right about Olivia ngl,” as a second added: “Ron stirred it more than I remembered hahahah.”
“But what Ron said about Olivia was 100% factual,” a third added as another penned: “Ron told no LIESSSS about Olivia because guess what you did de-recouple.”
“But it’s true no?? You couldn’t get Tom, no need to cry,” another added.
The scenes unfolded as part of the show’s annual Movie Night, a highly anticipated episode in which the Islander’s secrets are suddenly laid bare in the show’s very own answer to the Cannes Film Festival.
In a series of clips named after iconic films, the snippets of the star’s behaviour never fail to cause drama in the villa, as they unearth the truth behind their behaviour and reveal just how honest the stars have actually been with their partners.
Prior to it’s return, their had been some debate among fans if the iconic feature would be returning at all, after previous criticism was raised surrounding it being a “cruel” addition to the series, however, the segment’s return was formally confirmed at the end of Tuesday’s episode.
In a cheeky VoiceOver at the time, Iain Stirling said: "Tomorrow night" as a 'Movie Night' sign appeared alongside the familiar trumpets of the 21st Century Fox sound logo.
It was Ron himself who revealed the news to the contestants however, when producers sent him a text message, reading: “Islanders, it’s time to get glam hit the red carpet and grab some popcorn as tonight it’s Movie Night #Blockbuster #ThrillerInTheVilla.”
Will the relationships survive following movie night? Or have they come to the end of the road?
Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
