Love Island SPOILER: Trouble for Curtis and Amy as she's left in tears after he brands her an 'attention-seeker'
I|Jun. 12, 2019
They took their relationship to the next level when they became the first couple to spend the night together in the Hideaway on Tuesday's installment of the dating series.
And just hours after going official, Curtis Pritchard and Amy Hart's romance is rocked as the flight attendant, 26, bursts into tears after the dancer, 23, brands her an 'attention-seeker' over a recent row with Lucie Donlan, in scenes set to be aired on Wednesday's Love Island.
Amy was left unimpressed when social media sensation Lucie, 21, dared to exclusively date Joe Garratt, 22, on the same night the air hostess was asked to be Curtis' 'half-girlfriend'.
Raising her issue about close pal Lucie, Amy told Curtis on the day beds: 'I’m annoyed that they [Joe & Lucie] stole our thunder and if they interrupt your ceremony of asking me to be your girlfriend.'
Curtis responds in a jokey fashion: 'You need to stop being an attention-seeker, missy.'
In an attempt to soften the blow, Curtis says: 'Maybe they’re doing it because they look up to us? Think of it like that rather than they’re copying you or stealing your limelight.'
'It’s none of your business. If they want to force it then let them force it', he ends their tense conversation.
Having second thoughts over her behaviour during the discussion, an upset Amy says in the Beach Hut: 'Deflated is the word I feel like.
'Last night I was so excited and we had such a lovely evening. He doesn’t seem to understand why I am feeling the way I am feeling', she adds.
The usually giddy contestant is left overwhelmed with emotion as she discusses her recent disagreement with Curtis to fellow Islanders Molly-Mae Hague and Amber Gill.
She cries: 'I feel out of my depth with this whole situation with him. I like him so much, I've never met anyone like him. I feel like I'm going to ruin it.'
In an attempt to defuse the awkward atmosphere, Amy speaks with Lucie and Joe on the day beds.
The blonde says: 'I just wanted to come over and clear the air and explain how I was feeling yesterday.
'We came back from the Hideaway and it had been a really special occasion and we became exclusive. I came back and told all you girls and then an hour later you two were exclusive as well', she adds.
Insisting she understands where Amy was coming from, Lucie says: 'You’ve never had a boyfriend before so it’s a really big thing for you.'
Earlier in the episode, Amy admits she feels as if Lucie is drifting away from the Islanders in the villa.
In the kitchen, a concerned Amy tells her pal: ‘We should go and have a girl chat because we never see you anymore. You’re always with your bloody boyfriend!’
Defending their relationship, catering company owner Joe reasons with Amy: ‘You’re together all the time [referring to Amy & Curtis]’, with the Worthing native insisting: ‘I’m never with Curtis’.
In the Beach Hut, she divulges: ‘Lucie needed me a lot in the first few days because she needed advice but we never see her anymore. Her and Joe just sit on their own. I tried to bring her back into the group because I don’t want her to feel like she isn’t in the group, I was basically told to “go away”.’
Following their confrontation, Lucie admits: ‘It’s annoying because she is meant to be my closest friend… I’m really happy for her. I don’t know why she can’t be happy for me.’
On Tuesday's episode, Amy tore into her co-star Lucie as they both decided to move forward with their romances.
Narrator Iain Stirling gave a brief mention to Sherif Lanre, 20, who was booted from the villa for breaking the rules, as he told the audience: 'Yesterday, after a conversation with producers, Sherif left the villa.'
'Commenting on how Lucie only 'spends time with Joe or Tommy', Amy complained: 'Strange.'
She later added in the Beach Hut: 'It's a bit of a coincidence that on the same night Curtis and I become exclusive, they have also.
'They stole our thunder a bit. What about tomorrow? Why not make it special for us? It's like keeping up with Joneses.'
Earlier on in the show, viewers watched Amy and Curtis decide to take things further in their relationship when they were offered the chance to bunk up in the Hideaway.
'It’s day nine and the sexy PJs are out to go to the Hideaway with Curtis,' Amy said. 'I’m just really excited. I didn’t think it would happen this early.'
On arrival at the Hideaway the pair got into the hot tub, where they shared a steamy kiss.
Curtis said: 'We’re very close and very good together at the moment and I definitely don’t want to see anyone else.
'I know that no-one is going to walk through the door and turn my head at all. I’m not asking you to be in a relationship but I just want to lock it off.'
To which Curtis asked her: 'Will you be my half-girlfriend?'
'I will be your half-girlfriend,' Amy replied, waving goodbye to her 26 years of being single.
Joe and Lucie also decided to become exclusive as they headed on a surfing date.
Love Island continues on ITV2 on Wednesday at 9pm.
