Love Island The Reunion: Coco Lodge and Summer Botwe argue over Josh Le Grove at the show’s reunion

Love Island reunion 2022: Coco Lodge and Summer Botwe become embroiled in a vicious back and forth as they argue over Josh Le Grove

Love Island stars Coco Lodge and Summer Botwe certainly brought the drama on Sunday evening as they came to blows during the show’s reunion episode.

The pair got into a heated back-and-forth as they rowed over fellow islander Josh Le Grove, who is currently dating Summer.

With the latter accusing Coco of ‘wishing’ she slept with him following her stint in the villa, things became awkward as the show’s co-host Darren Harriett was forced to split the girls up. 

Candid; It came as Coco recently went on podcast Saving Grace, where she told host Grace Barry that she could've probably slept with Josh if she wanted to after the pair were dumped from the island

The reunion show welcomed back all of this season’s islanders to debrief on their time both inside and outside of the villa.

And heading over to the bar, Coco and Summer were sat with Billy Brown and Josh between them.

As Darren attempted to pry some gossip from the Casa Amor islanders, he questioned Billy: ‘Who’s been getting with who?’

But with Billy refusing to give a definitive answer, Summer interjected by saying: ‘I know someone who wishes they got with someone but maybe I won’t say too much.’

The bombshell was referencing Coco’s recent appearance on podcast Saving Grace, where she told host Grace Barry that she could’ve probably slept with Josh if she wanted to after the pair were dumped from the island.

Coco appeared to imply that she regretted the decision, branding Josh ‘so fit’ during the podcast – to the apparent dismay of Summer. 

But ready for the argument at the reunion, Coco quipped back to Summer: ‘It’s banter. If you can’t handle a big personality don’t go on reality TV, it’s banter.’

With Summer replying: ‘Maybe we should talk about you, If you want to talk about you we can’.

Darren interrupted with an attempt to settle the harsh words, saying: ‘Guys not now’.

But Summer hadn’t finished saying her piece yet, as she continued: ‘I just want to clarify I would never fight over anybody because I don’t see any competition.’

While Coco hit back that Josh was just ‘a mate’, as the model sat between the two girls with his head in his hands and sunglasses on.

While it made for some awkward studio viewing at the reunion, viewers of the show couldn’t get enough of the drama as they took to Twitter discuss.

Branding the feud the ‘best part’ of the otherwise uneventful reunion, some detailed their anger that the whole spat was not shown.

With reports that the pair got much more heated than what was show on TV, viewers were desperate to know what went down. 

One viewer pleaded: ‘I want to see Coco and Summers fight so badly I’m ready to sign a petition. I’m desperate.’ 

‘I’d actually watch 90 minutes of Summer and Coco fighting,’ wrote another.
