Bombshell Claudia Fogarty dates Tom and Casey as she arrives at the villa

Claudia was then allowed to date two boys after she received a text from showrunners.

The bombshell then chose Casey and Tom to take out.

Tom and Claudia enjoyed some time under a pergola set alongside a stunning seaside view.

Tom remarked during the date: “I think I got the best of both worlds, two very nice views, I can’t complain.”

When asked why she picked Tom, she said: “The northern charm, you’re very similar to me and you’ve got very good eye contact, I love that.”

On Claudia's date with Casey, she said: “I need to get to know everyone, but coming in last night I feel like I was so drawn to you.”

Claudia then asked him: “What would your ideal date be?” to which Casey replied: "If I could picture a perfect date and a perfect girl it would be this.”

By the show's end, the islanders were sent an urgent text, saying: "Please gather around the fire pit immediately.”

They were then told there would be a recoupling with the boys picking who would be staying.
