ITV Love Island viewers left baffled after Luca drank from an ’empty glass’ during a date with Danica
Love Island returned with a new episode on Sunday night (June 19) and kicked off with a re-coupling as one person was dumped from the villa. Remi Lambert received the boot after bombshell Danica Taylor opted to partner with Luca Bish, leaving fellow islanders shocked.
Later in the dramatic episode, Luca, who had been happily paired with Gemma Owen, left the villa to go on a first date with dancer Danica. Meanwhile, Gemma stayed with her new partner Davide Sanclimenti after choosing him during the re-coupling when Luca was ‘stolen’ from her.
The pair dressed up in “unplanned” matching blue outfits and headed for the beach. Luca and Danica then settled down to enjoy a picnic on the sand and they opened a bottle of champagne.

Passing the fizz to Luca, Danica says, “Then I’ll let you do the honors.” Luca replied, “Don’t drink but I’ll open it for you” before adding, “It’s unreal, it’s not fair to be outside.”
Danica: “Yeah definitely.” After Luca managed to pop the cork, Danica passed him the flutes to pour some bubbly. The couple said ‘cheers’ and toasted each other, but eagle-eyed fans of the ITV2 reality show noticed Luca still seemed to be taking a sip despite his glass being ’empty’, leaving them perplexed.
Taking to Twitter, viewers expressed their confusion over Luca drinking from an empty glass with one person asking, “Is Luca drinking from an empty glass??? lol #loveisland”.
A second wrote: “Really bad luck celebrating with an empty glass Luca #loveisland”. A third added: “Luca takes a sip from an empty glass #loveisland”.
“Why did Luca clap and ‘drink’ a clearly EMPTY glass??? #LoveIsland,” one bemused viewer questioned with another stating, “Not Luca drinking from an empty glass.”
