Love Island: Zara Holland and newcomer Alex Bowen got up close and personal in tonight's episode of the show.

Viewers had seen the arrival of two new boys, Alex and 20-year-old James Khan, and later found out that Zara had been chosen by the public to date one of them.

Initially attracted to Alex more than she was James, Zara decided to go for Vicky Pattison's close pal and the pair enjoyed a date away from prying eyes in the hideaway.

The pair were treated to chocolate covered strawberries and champagne, and as they got to know each other a little better, Zara and Alex were asked if they would like to spend the night together in the hideaway.

Without even hesitating, Zara suggested the pair stay. She said to Alex: "I think we should stay. Stay the whole night? Yeah. Cool, we'll stay."

And clearly wanting to make the most of their private date, things then appeared to get a little steamy under the covers...

It's safe to say we were not expecting that, you?!

Especially as Alex had previously admitted to having a thing for Olivia Buckland instead. After joining the villa, he and Olivia appeared to click and bonded over their love of tattoos.

She seemed to make a good impression on Alex and he had said in the beach hut: "We just clicked and we were like back and forth talking and we never ran out of things to see and she's a pretty girl as well. I've got a little thing for Olivia already."

When Zara had chosen him for to join her on the date, Alex admitted he had reservations: "When Zara did pick me I was just like, 'Sh*t.' I looked at Olivia and Olivia was like, 'Oh no.'"

Olivia, meanwhile, made it pretty clear she would not be happy if Zara and Alex chose to stay overnight. She told her fellow islanders: "That would p*** me off. 100%. I just want them to come out now."

How is she going to react?!
