It's been non-stop drama in the Love Island villa and last night was no exceptions. Two- faced behaviour was revealed, the phrases 'it is what it is" and "my type" were grossly overused and true friendships came out in times of crisis. Here are five life lessons from Love Island:
Lesson One- How to handle conflict
It hasn't been the best week for Yewande. New girl Arabella entered the villa and quickly set her sights on Danny, who is coupled up with Yewande. In Friday's episode, Arabella took Yewande aside and it was quickly made apparent that Danny was playing the two of them. Aside from letting her insecurities get the better of her, Yewande handled this situation perfectly. She took both of them aside and laid out the facts. Well played Yewande, turns out Danny was no knight in shining armour, just another gobshite wrapped in tin foil.

Lesson Two- What it means to be a good friend
In times of conflict, true friends reveal themselves and Michael showed us what it means to be a good friend.
Michael calls out Danny for being a dick, takes yewandes side when it would be so easy to side with his mate, and is also there for her, and is the only one who says that just because Maura talks about sex doesn’t mean she will do it, he is SO underrated #LoveIsland

Lesson Three- Lies will always catch up with you
Oh, Danny boy, I say boy because all his behaviour has shown is he's nothing short of a child. He came into the villa a self-proclaimed 'nice guy' but has revealed himself to be anything but. Surely, it must have crossed his mind at some point that women talk and if you are saying two different things to two different women, you will be found out.

Lesson Four- How to lose a girl in 2o seconds
The lesson on how to lose a girl in 20 seconds comes from Manchester model Tom. Things seemed to be running smoothly for the new couple who shared their first kiss, closely followed by 2 more kisses. Maura went on to win the weekly challenge by proving she can "down anything". As a reward for being the winner of the challenge, Maura was allowed to spend one night in the hideout with the man of her choice. Naturally, she chose Tom and what followed is a perfect of a man being an absolute tool.

Lesson Five- Maura on how to just do you
Maura is quickly becoming everyone's favourite Islander. She says it how it is and doesn't hold back. Her reaction to Tom being offensive on so many levels has moved her up to reality TV legend status with talks of a welcome home parade in Longford. First, he assumed he would be getting laid because she is open about talking about sex. Aside from showing absolutely no respect, he basically slut-shamed her by saying "let's see if she's all mouth". Take a life lesson from Tommy, Tom, a gentleman never tells.

Think Maura deserves a homecoming parade in Longford just for that scene telling Tom where to go #LoveIsland

Tom saying “let’s see if she’s all mouth” about Maura because she’s open about her sex life is a prime example of how women are objectified for expressing liking sex etc, just cause a woman is open about their sex life doesn’t mean she’s open to sleeping with anyone!! #loveisland
