Love Island: Tom Powell brands newcomer Adam Maxted a "snake" after he makes a play for Sophie Gradon.

Last night (8 June), fans saw Adam join the villa and he instantly had the girls fighting over him, with Olivia and Zara both voicing that they fancy him.

Little did they know that Sophie had expressed some interest in Adam too, and in scenes to air tonight, the wrestler ruffles a few feathers when he asks all three girls to join him on a date.

While Olivia and Zara were a dead cert to be joining Adam on a date, he caused a stir by later asking Sophie to come and meet him for a drink.

During his evening of speed dating with the girls, before becoming an official islander, Adam had revealed to Sophie that she is his type and he would have chosen her to couple up with. She, however, isn't strictly single.

Sophie is currently coupled up with Tom, but Adam's advances have got her thinking and viewers saw her confess to Tom that she isn't completely happy with him.

Tonight, Adam seeks out the opportunity to speak to Sophie when Tom is in the beach hut. He tells her: "If I got offered to take someone on a date, I'd probably want to take you. Probably wouldn't go down well. Do you think Tom might get a bit…if I'm talking to you too much though?"

Sophie said Tom would mind, as he's already been worrying about his romance with her. And she later admits she is "relieved" when Adam doesn't initially pick her to go on a date.

She confesses to Tom: "I was nervous there. Because I spoke to Adam earlier. And he said that if he got asked to take a girl on a date, that he might potentially want to take me."

Sophie reassures Tom that she would have gone but strictly as friends, saying: "There's not really any romantic connection there for me. He is attractive but I was just s***ing myself a bit, because I know how you would react. I'm actually quite relieved."

Tom, however, isn't happy. He claims he has "zero respect" for Adam as he chose to approach Sophie behind his back.

When Adam returns with Sophie to the villa, he approaches Tom for a chat, only to be told by his co-star that he is a "snake."

Tom says: "I think you're a little snake. When you told Sophie that this morning, why didn't you come up to me and say the same thing?"

Adam responds: "I should have come up to you first. I respect that. I just didn't think. It all came at once. It is strictly on a physical attraction with Sophie. She's the girl I think is the prettiest in here."

And it seems he has quite an impact on Sophie, as she later admits her date with Adam has left her confused.

"I like Tom, but now that I've been with Adam, I feel like there could be a spark there," she admits.
