'Love Island' 2021: Who Is Coupled With Who—And Who's Been Eliminated

In 2020, Love Island began with 10 contestants coupling up before an 11th man arrived and shook things up. This year, things are a little bit different, and two contestants will be left out after the first recoupling.

In the 2021 third season of Love Island, things start as usual with couples forming.

By the end of the first episode, there were only five girls and seven boys in the villa in Hawaii, meaning two men will not get a girl after the first recoupling.

The bombshell arrival of two new men on the first day meant after just 24 hours in the villa, two men will end up single after their girls are stolen.

We break down the couples from Day 2 and who could be eliminated as the season progresses.

This article will be updated as the show continues and the contestants recouple. Scroll to the bottom of the article for the latest couplings and dumpings.

After a pretty hectic week in Casa Amor, the time came for another recoupling, with islanders tasked with choosing whether to couple up with a new arrival or stick with their partners.

At the end of the recoupling, seven of the Casa Amor islanders were dumped, and only one islander was left single when her partner chose not to return to her.

Here are the new couples from Casa Amor's recoupling:

  • Charlie and Cashay

Two days later, Leslie Golden, 24, was removed from the island for having a dab pen on the premises, which breaks the rules.

Eliminated Day 25

After this recoupling, a vote took place where America chose their favorite islanders.

Of the least favorites, one boy and one girl had to go home, and it was up to the other islanders to choose.

They chose to save Trina and Jeremy, after which they had to select another boy and girl to save. They decided to keep Will and Kyra in the villa.

As a result, Genevieve Shawcross, 22, and Cinco were sent home.

Days later, tragedy struck the villa and Shannon and Josh decided to leave the island together on Day 31.

This came after news broke that Josh's sister had died the night before.

He told his fellow islanders: "She was an unbelievable person. She was the reason I'm here, the reason I found Shannon and met all you guys. It's unexpected, but she lived an unbelievable life. I just need to be home with my family right now to support them.

"I just want to let you guys know that I'm so grateful to have met all of you, consider you all my best friends. We're going to see each other again. This isn't it."
