Love Island fans are 'finding out' the real reason Tasha cried after the relink

Love Island fans say they've found out why Tasha really cried after Friday's reunion - and it doesn't sound good for Andrew. (Author: Gardener)

Love IslandLove Island fans have taken to social media to reveal their theories as to why Tasha broke down in tears following Friday night's dramatic reconnection. The dancer ended up rejoining Andrew Le Page, who she has worked with since the show began, despite recently stating her interest in new bombshell Charlie Radnedge. Admitting she wanted to "meet" the newcomer, Andrew was disappointed, but after Charlie chose actress Ekin-su instead, the 26-year-old once again chose his longtime partner. However, pals Dami, 26, and Luca, 23, clearly disagreed with the decision, with the camera clearly showing their disdain, leading to Tasha confronting her later in the show - and bursting into tears at the end. However, fans seem to think there was an entirely different reason she was crying and took to Twitter to speculate. "I really think Tasha is crying because Charlie didn't pick her and now she's related to Andrew," wrote one viewer. While another added, "Tasha isn't crying because the boys shook their heads, she's crying because Charlie didn't pick her." A third agreed, "Tasha didn't try because she was upset, she definitely has cried the relink because Charlie didn't pick her!" Fans also called out Dami and Luca for their reaction, accusing them of "double standards". An angry viewer asked: "Why when Jay says to Ekin that he would go with her if she left and then says he wants to meet Paige (who was there all along) the boys support him but when tasha does it (to a guy who wasn't there at the time) they all come because of her?? Another agreed, writing: "So at the mansion it's ok for the men to meet people but not the women?! That with double standards. Neither boy had a problem with Jay doing it with Paige but no, I don't want Tasha to meet anyone." A third wrote, "The men on this damn island have created such a freaking toxic misogynistic environment where the girls can't even look at another guy without them shaming and bullying them." We saw it with Ekin-Su and now we're watching it with Tasha." Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2.

Love Island'sTasha Ghouri broke down in tears on Sunday night June 26 episode of Love Island when she confronted Dami Hope and Luca Bish about their behavior during the reunion ceremony. The boys had doubted she was serious about her relationship with Andrew Le Page, who she has worked with since the beginning, as she said she was open to meeting Charlie Radnedge when he entered the villa. When Andrew decided to stay with Tasha, Luca and Dami were visibly upset with the decision and could be seen shaking their heads as Tasha and Andrew sat down. After taking some time to think about what happened, she pulled the boys aside to have a chat. Tasha began by saying, "After yesterday I think I was just a little bit speechless talking to you two. I'm close to you two in that villa on a personal level, and I was just surprised and quite hurt by that "I was up there and you both shook your head." Luca admitted he was the one who shook his head when he said, "It was me and I apologize for that." Tasha said, "I was just upset about it all, and I really like the guy. I really like Andrew, can you sit here and say I don't like him?" Dami replied: "We think you like him, we do. It just happens sometimes when we hear or see things... "You can like someone, but not as much as you thought." But as the conversation progressed, Tasha became more and more emotional, saying that the people at the mansion "don't stand behind her". Tasha continued, "People just think I don't care about Andrew, I just feel like people here don't have my back, like I have feelings too." Dami replied, "We know, we know, and I'm telling you, if the situation were different, we would be behind you too. "Andrew, Andrew, Andrew" - but also me? As Tasha started to get visibly upset, Dami decided to apologize by saying, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, don't be sad," before giving her a tight hug. Shortly after, Tasha had a conversation that severely drained their relationship — when she admitted she "didn't really know" where this had left them as a couple.

Love IslandLove Island fans have speculated that Luca Bish doesn't care about Tasha Ghouri after he initially failed to comfort her as she broke down crying on Sunday's episode. The 23-year-old fishmonger looked away while Dami Hope, 26, comforted the dancer and model, also 23, as she lashed out over a recent reunion controversy. She claimed to have seen her fellow islanders shake their heads after Andrew Le Page decided to work with her - although she said she was "open to meeting newcomer Charlie Radnedge after their date". During the day, Tasha roared around the fire pit, saying: "People just think I don't care about Andrew, but I do. I feel like the people here just don't have my back. I was sad all night and everyone was like, "Andrew, Andrew." Like, what about me? But while Dami quickly leaned in for a warm hug and told her "not to be sad", Luca just offered an arm for a quick hug before telling her to "go and talk to Andrew". Fans flooded Twitter with their thoughts, writing, "Luca's reaction to Tasha crying," along with a meme of someone saying, "I don't give a f***k." Others added, "lmao luca gives tasha the most awkward hug... #LoveIsland" as well as: "Luca looks away. "The way Dami hugged Tasha and Luca just sat there. Elsewhere in the episode, Indiyah insisted she had "tunnel vision" and wouldn't turn her head after telling Dami on the couple's first date Sunday night that she saw marriage in her future. The pair sat down for a romantic meal on the latest episode of the ITV2 show, with Indiyah noting: "I feel like we've had a crazy journey, but I feel like it's meant to happen." Indiyah added: "People have come and gone at the villa but we've both been here the whole time so at times it's like it's right in front of you." To know where Indiyah stands, Dami asked: "Where's your head, do you feel like it could be turned slightly?" Indiyah replied: "You know what, I'll be honest - at this moment no. Obviously it's early days, but I'm not even concentrating on that right now. Me and you are both here, I'm getting to know you and I'm really happy. Indiyah smiled, "Do you think it all comes together perfectly?" Dami agreed, "Yeah, but too perfect to be honest, it just feels too perfect." Then Indiyah popped the question, "Too good to be true, hey?" Ekin-Su waited for the couple to get back from their date and said, "I think Indiyah will come back with a ring on her finger. First marriage on the island, I think." Indiyah told her fellow islanders at the villa, "I won't lie, I think that was the best date I've ever had in my life... I don't think I'm turning my back will. Later at the beach hut, Dami said: "She expressed that she likes me, she actually sees something with me. I feel like I'm out of breath man with excitement. At the beginning of the episode, the girls were seen grouped on the beds in the mansion as they discussed their first night alongside their new partner after reconnecting earlier this week. Sharing a bed with Indiyda, Dami said: "My first night with Indiya was good. Ekin-Su sounded less than impressed with her first night with Charlie, saying sarcastically to the other girls, "Mine was very interesting. Speaking about the reunion on Friday, Tasha, when Tasha's fellow islanders looked shocked when Andrew picked her up to re-mate with her instead of being with Bombshell Charlie, Tasha said, "When Andrew gave his speech, the other boys shook upside down and were a bit negative. I've had good dates.' Ekin-Su said to her, 'You don't have to prove anything to anyone in here.' Tasha has previously slammed the boy's "rude" reaction after being singled out by Andrew in dramatic scenes that saw her burst into tears. The boys had expressed doubts about her romance with Andrew, noting that every new man who had entered the mansion had turned her head after she confessed she was open to meeting Charlie. Speaking up for herself on Sunday, she said: "I really like the guy, I really like Andrew. She added: "I think he might be more secretive than I thought, but he didn't tell me that." Breaking down in tears, she continued, "I think people just think I don't care about Andrew... I feel like everyone just thought of Andrew. Tasha drew Andrew in for a chat and told him, "I have a feeling that maybe we're not on the same page. From what I've been told, I have the feeling that you are not being open with me.' Andrew replied, "If you want to meet other people, then meet other people. No one really came in for me now that I wanted to meet.' "I get what it looks like, but it doesn't get in the way of my head spinning at every boy that comes in. It's just a conversation, a conversation with him," Tasha told him, Andrew asked her, "Where's that at? Me and you?", to which she said, "Right now, I just don't know." Tasha was later seen chatting with Bomber Charlie, with the new islander telling her about his current partner, "I'm taking it slow with Ekin. Tasha, who dated Charlie earlier this week, told him: "My head's a little bit messed up ... Obviously me and Andrew have something really good, but I'm in the position now where I'm not doing anything or I'm f**ing on are you okay?' "If you're on a date with someone and it's good, it's definitely not worth completely shutting down," he replied. At the beach hut, Tasha said: "It's nice to have this conversation with Charlie and keep it between the two of us because obviously things can get twisted. "Obviously I like Andrew, but I need to think a bit." Meanwhile, Jay was seen sitting down to chat with Paige, and Jay asked her, "How are you feeling after the first night of sleeping without Jacques?" Paige said, "Ah no, it was all good , I enjoyed our pillow talks, it was nice to meet you know what I mean? Jay said to her, "You know I like you. Out of personal respect, I don't want to feel like I'm knocking on a door that won't open.' Paige teased him, saying, "I'm not with Jaques, so that doesn't mean the door is closed." Later at the beach shack, Paige revealed, "It's an awkward thing because the guys — Jay and Jacques, you really couldn't get more opposite guys around here." Speaking to Indiyah later, Paige reflected on how good she was to Jacques fit, and discussed building a stronger relationship with Jay. She said to Indiyah, "Which connection is stronger? I've told Jay I'm still open to talking to him, but at the same time I don't want to let this drag on too long. Meanwhile, Ekin-Su and Davide were spotted snuggling up for a chat about their friendship during Sunday's episode of Love Island. The Turkish actress, 28, revealed her true feelings for Italian hunk, 27, in upcoming scenes after hooking up with newcomer Charlie. The couple couldn't stop smiling as they started joking around, before Ekin-Su told ITV2 viewers she has something "special" with him at the beach hut - although the couple bitterly split after kissing Jay. Davide said, "Sometimes I laugh with you, I like to take your breath out," making them both giggle. Ekin-Su then told Davide, "Yeah, I don't come to you to... Later in the beach hut, Ekin-Su revealed, "We talk as friends, but there's something, I don't know what it is, there's always something very special with Davide that I can't have in here with anyone else.' Charlie had previously chatted with Ekin-Su about their date, and she later admitted that she's "excited to see how much time goes by," adding that she's "open" to seeing what happens with the new bomb could happen. Meanwhile, Davide has hooked up with new girl Antigoni after sharing a private hickey with Danica the night before. Danica seemed disappointed with Friday night's dramatic reconnection as she was the last girl to stand. After a heated argument between Davide and Ekin-Su, the couple called it quits when he confessed to "being afraid of being hurt by a woman like you". Davide tricked Ekin-Su into admitting her secret date with Jay, 28, sending fans into hysterics as they crawled through the mansion for the secret meeting. Then he came to Ekin-Su and said: "You weren't on the terrace, were you? He continued: "That's why I haven't opened up because I'm afraid of being hurt by a woman like you. Davide claimed that Ekin-Su would get "an Oscar" for her performance and briefly told Jay "good luck bro". But then Ekin-Su was seen telling Paige and Gemma, "Jay walks in here and I felt great, I'm leaving with my feelings, end of ... yeah, I kissed him [Jay], so what? He hasn't told [Davide] that I'm his girlfriend, technically it's not cheating. She adds: "He's acting like he cares now. Ekin-Su continues her defense, adding, "Did I hurt your ego? I'm telling you that you're a liar... You don't care about me.' He concludes by claiming that he no longer cares about Ekin-Su because he came to the mansion to find something "real". Following an explosive end to her brief flirtation with Davide, fiery fan favorite Jay joined them. A lovesick Ekin-Su was then seen confessing everything in the beach shack as she admitted: "I've caught feelings I'm screwed help." But investment analyst Jay recently revealed he wants to meet Paige, which infuriated Ekin-Su and ended their short-lived romance. In a heated conversation, she said, "It just occurred to me what you've done, you're telling me now that you want to meet Paige when she's in a secure relationship. Do you know how muggy that makes you look? “Apparently I was a gamer in here, but the biggest gamer in here is you. You deserve an Oscar for that, the biggest Oscar. So you should just walk away from Jay!'


Love Island viewers feel sorry for Andrew after Tasha gave him the cold shoulder

Though they were coupled from the start, friction between the two has grown, with many fans left unhappy with Tasha's actions (Author: Gardener)

Love IslandFor much of Love Island's current season, Andrew and Tasha have been one of the more solid couples at the villa. However, the recent introduction of new boy Charlie threw their first real challenge their way and the duo look will drift apart as a result. However, the new boy actually chose Ekin-su in the last reunion, but that hasn't stopped Tasha from seeming distant with her current partner. The 23-year-old, who was visibly disappointed at not being picked by Charlie, showed little sign of wanting to pursue what she had with Andrew. In the last few episodes, Tasha has burst into tears over the whole situation, but it's Andrew that viewers have more sympathy for.

Dami offered some advice afterwards, telling him, "I'd like to move on , when someone else comes in and all that, you should have an open mind and give it a chance because I feel like you're a bit closed off most of the time because you know how much you really, really like Tasha. "But I just want to give it a chance and see what else could possibly be there." Love Island airs every night at 9pm on ITV2 and the ITV Hub.

Tasha Ghouri'sTasha Ghouri's beloved father jumped to her defense after the Love Island star shed tears after a rough few days at the villa. The recent reunion proved to be the most dramatic yet, as an irate Tasha confronted the boys about the "rude" reaction after being voted out of Bombshell Charlie by Andrew again. Company boss Tarek, 56, has gushed about his daughter, 23, revealing she had been just herself on the ITV2 dating show. He told The Mirror: "Tasha is a very genuine, natural, compassionate person and I've seen many examples of her being there to support other candidates. In general it's great to see her enjoying the villa and making new friends – it makes me smile.” Tasha, dancer and model, was diagnosed deaf at birth and has a cochlear implant. Tarek opened up about the moment his family found out she was deaf: "It was a difficult time and something we had to come to terms with. Tasha grew up in Thirsk, North Yorkshire and Tarek revealed she had a great support network growing up. "I'm different and I have a hearing problem and I have this thing on my ear." Guys are starting to cum and maybe she was doubting if she was attractive enough. On Friday's episode, Tasha broke down in tears in dramatic scenes after learning the boys had expressed doubts about her romance with Andrew, noting that she turned her head at every new man who walked into the mansion after admitting she was open to meeting Charlie. Despite this, Charlie decided to develop another connection with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, leaving the rest of the islanders stunned, while Jay Younger made a bold move and stole Paige Thorne from Jacques. Andrew was keen to know how Tasha's date with Charlie went, and she explained, "I went in with a completely open mind to see what happened. It was a good date. He's a good-looking guy," before admitting she felt like she'd "lost herself" since first entering the mansion almost three weeks ago. You are a very good looking girl. But after Tasha admitted to enjoying the date with the new bombshell, Andrew was disheartened ahead of the reunion, and the boys were quick to realize he realized how much he liked Tasha. A frustrated Andrew said: "One minute she's saying she'd go with me if I got voted out and the next she's saying she wants to meet him! "I know what's happening tonight," the real estate agent told friends Antigoni Buxton and Jay Younger - and suggested Charlie would pick Tasha to pair up with him again. Love Island continues on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVHub. All episodes are available on Britbox the next morning.


Liam Gallagher's favorite Oasis songs

Liam Gallagher has found a perfect mix of new solo material and classic Oasis songs to please his adoring fans in sold-out arenas. (Author: Gardener)

Liam Gallagher'sLiam Gallagher is enjoying a renaissance in his career and has found a perfect mix of new solo material and classic Oasis songs to please his adoring fanbase after years struggling to find a footing following the split from Manchester's favorite sons. The renewed vigor in his work has seen Liam break out of the shadow of his older brother Noel and assert himself as an artist in his own right, whilst also maintaining a loyal following that has remained loyal to him for over 25 years. Why not, Liam has still publicly feuded with his estranged brother Noel, often teasing the idea of ​​reuniting the Mancunian legends for a mega-money deal. So far, Noel has been unmoved, only fidgeting to unleash a tirade at his younger sibling. It was a tête-à-tête that has been going on for years and will likely continue for years to come. Undoubtedly one of the most outspoken singers of the day, Liam was never shy about throwing equal barbs at Noel and praising the band he shared with him. The band, led by the feuding brothers, did a very special thing that very few groups really do, and they transformed British pop culture in the blink of an eye, for better or for worse. Despite their historical roots in rock 'n' roll (they were avid fans of 1960s pop groups), Oasis never followed a trend - they set it. This has resulted in the group remaining a fan favorite and a guaranteed conversation starter among music fans who keep one foot alternative and the other mainstream. While the band will continue to divide fans, there's one question that everyone has answered in their own time: What are your favorite Oasis songs? A while back, as part of their 73-question feature, Vogue took Liam Gallagher on a leisurely stroll around Hampstead Heath and amidst the barrage of questions, posed this classic conversation-starter: What's your favorite Oasis song? Unable to pick just one, Gallagher's list includes a few notable inclusions and a fair bit of his tongue-in-cheek humour. When asked about his favorite lyrics of all time, he replied, "I have to be myself, I can't be anyone else, I feel supersonic, Give me gin and tonic," in a not-so-subtle tone referring to the song. So it's no wonder that "Supersonic" is one of his favourites. Referring to "Supersonic," Gallagher said in a previous interview with Absolute Radio, "I like the words, I like the guitars in it, and I still find it an odd melody." song, and it's still fun to sing," he added. Next on the list - and perhaps to prove there's still some love between him and his brother - Liam then chooses one of his favorites, the Noel-penned anthem 'Live Forever'. The song, written before older brother Noel joined Oasis, is one of their best tracks and was once described by Alan McGee as "probably the greatest moment I've ever had with them". He secured them the deal with Creation Records. Elsewhere, Liam also chooses the relatively unknown "Cast No Shadow," which sits at number eight on the tracklist and appears sandwiched between "Some Might Say" and "She's Electric," the song acting as a glue between hits and being the last finished song on Morning Glory. Under pressure from the inappropriately cheerful interviewer, Gallagher begins to struggle to come up with a fourth song as his favorite (despite being asked for five). Watch the full 73 questions Liam Gallagher answers for Vogue below.


1909 Typist turned playwright Elizabeth Baker writes about Chasing Your Dreams in Chains

The Mint brings back another forgotten Elizabeth Baker gem and Martha Clarke explores the biblical playboy who threw it all away. (Author: Gardener)

Elizabeth BakerThere are adult, legally eligible voters who were not alive when I wrote my first article for BroadwayWorld in October 2003, and in the nearly two full decades since then I have always been immensely proud to contribute to a media venture that is transforming the live theater scene covers so thoroughly; not just in New York, but worldwide. But I've never been more proud to be a part of BroadwayWorld than this past Thursday morning, when, very shortly after the news broke that the Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to abortion and delegated that decision to each individual state, the website published a prominent article advising readers on ways to challenge that decision, which included the following paragraph: BroadwayWorld unequivocally supports and condemns a pregnant person's right to choice and access to medical care, including abortion today's Supreme Court decision. BroadwayWorld is a theater site that does not expect its readers to provide editorial content on non-theater topics, so yes, it made me particularly proud to see that the decision was made to go beyond our usual jurisdiction and take a stand on this vital issue. I greatly admire their efforts, but I believe my niche is amplifying the voices of playwrights making important points about today's political and social issues. In my 40+ years as a theater-goer, I've generally found that the bolder the theater is to voicing bold opinions, the more likely the staging is. In recent weeks I've written about plays like Madhuri Shekar's Queen, which explores the sometimes difficult partnership of activism and statistics, Gab Reisman's Spindle Shuttle Needle, which explores the vulnerability of civilian women in war zones, Mara Vélez Meléndez' Notes on Killing Seven Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Board Members, on the US government's handling of Puerto Rico during its economic crisis; and Stephen Kaliski's The Refugees, on the moral obligations nations can have when people in need push their limits turn around. In troubling times like these, it is traditionally artists who champion the causes of oppression. With this weekly column, I seek to advocate for the less publicized, substandard productions far from the illuminating spotlight of Broadway, where brave, committed voices fighting injustice cry out to be heard. What puzzled me a little on the hiatus from Elizabeth Baker's Chains, the Mint Theater Company's great production, was why, in 1909, a playwright wrote a story about two men willing to throw away the security of their paying jobs and take a chance to find something more satisfying. My guest, who had previously read a little about the playwright, pointed out that this was Baker's first play and that she had been working as a clerk in London for $5.00 a week. We suspected that perhaps the men she worked for did not pay much attention to her as a woman, and perhaps the play was prompted by confessions of her dissatisfaction overheard. Up to this point, the play has mostly been about how a young office worker named Freddie (the politely charming Peterson Townsend), who is renting a room in a London suburb from his colleague Charley and his wife Lily, suddenly announces that he is in three days will be traveling to Australia, although he has no immediate prospects because he feels he wants more out of life than a modest steady income and three weeks holiday a year. His announcement intrigues Charley, who married young and is fulfilling his expected duties to thankless executives, and ignites a hidden desire to do the same. It's only in Act Two that we discover that Lily's shopgirl sister, Maggie (the spirited Olivia Gilliatt), who has previously expressed admiration for Freddie's decision, is considering breaking up with her nice but boring finances - which she only agreed to has to get married to escape the drudgery of her job - and sets out to find her own adventure.

The focus is on the excellent work of Jeremy Beck, whose Charley shows signs of struggling with his desire for more, and Laakan McHardy, whose kindly, reserved exterior as Lily in a scene where Charley tries to explain is shaken. He doesn't want to end their marriage, but he still longs for a new life. I won't reveal what happens next, but there was much lively discussion after the show about what really happened at the end of the play and what messages the playwright was trying to convey about men, women, safety and opportunity. ...would be once a year if newspapers and websites featured photos of pigs, camels and puppies climbing the steps of St John The Devine Cathedral for the annual St Francis Day blessing of the animals. So it would probably have been a good idea for me to do some research on the lad before watching Martha Clarke's latest dance/play God's Fool at La MaMa (tickets $30 in advance; $35 day of show; students /Seniors: $25 advance; $30 day of show). Not that I didn't enjoy the 75-minute impressionist play, but poet Fanny Howe's sparse narration presents more of a riff on the lives of the privilege-born saint, who rejects the good life, preferring to mingle with the poor and disenfranchised a full narrative. What struck me, however, was how the company of eight (including Patrick Andrews as Francis, ballet star George de la Peña as his father, and John Kelly as the devil) did a great job singing the Arthur Solari a cappella score that spans the piece , with music off
