Love Island fans pointed out an “awkward” filming blunder during Thursday’s episode as Liam Llewellyn went on two dates with new bombshells Afia Tonkmor and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.
On Tuesday, the hit ITV2 show unveiled two new bombshells with the public picking who they go on dates with after Davide Sanclimenti picked his new partner Gemma, who had been coupled up with Liam.
During Thursday’s episode, Liam, who was picked to go on the dates by the public, met Afia, 25, who is a Lounge Host at a Private Members Club, and Ekin-Su, 27, who is an actress, outside the villa.
Both of the bombshells were sat waiting on separate tables as Liam introduced himself to Ekin-Su first before going onto his date with Afia.

However, eagle-eyed viewers were left distracted during the scenes as they spotted that Ekin-Su was sat on her own waiting at the table just behind Liam and Afia in “awkward” scenes.
While Afia was also left on her own at the table just behind Liam and Ekin-Su as he went onto his second date of the evening.
Taking to Twitter, viewers pointed out how “awkward” it would be to be sat behind a date on your own as they questioned why the bombshells weren’t brought out separately.
One person said: “Nah they couldn’t have separated the dates ??? how are they both sat there #LoveIsland” with a crying emoji.
A different account put: “Why is the second date sat 2 meters behind them LOL #love island.”
Another follower wrote: “No this is so awkward, Ekin-Su just sat in the background on her own could they not have staggered these dates, please #love island.”
A different viewer put: “Why is ekin-su just Sat there!?!? This is so awkward #Love Island.”
While another show watcher added: “Why’s it so awkward that the other girl just sat there doing nothing #Love Island.”

However, it’s likely due to the fact that Liam was voted for both dates as if another male Islander had been picked, the dates would have happened at the same time.
This wasn’t the only thing viewers spotted during the date and fans were forced to “turn up their TVs” as Liam’s whispering left show watchers baffled.
