Love Island: Aftersun had viewers in bits on Sunday night as they brought back one of the highlights from the series so far.
Two weeks into Love Island 2022, audiences have been treated to explosive drama, awkward dates, dramatic recouplings and – in the form of Remi Lambert – rapping.
In a previous episode, Remi had rapped to his fellow contestants around the firepit (while forgetting the words just a bit), resulting in a slightly awkward silence and a side-eye between Luca and Jacques.
But while the performance wasn’t mind-blowing (to say the least) the star had still been met with a round of applause from his fellow Islanders.
On Sunday, the rapper was booted from the villa in a shock recoupling, and landed on Love Island: Aftersun to have his final say before heading home.
Of course, being kicked out of a competition with a potential £50,000 prize would likely not leave you in the mood for performing… but they asked Remi to rap anyway.

And to his credit, he did – but his heart clearly wasn’t in it, and he forgot his words again.
The segment resulted in fairly awkward viewing, with many fans catching on to the reactions of fellow former contestants Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran, who looked to be visibly cringing as the Manchester-born reality star gave it a go.
Fans flocked to social media to comment on the moment, with one person sharing a reaction image with the caption: ‘They got Remi to do a rap on after sun… and he forgot his bars again.’

‘Chloe and Toby’s face when Remi rapped,’ one fan laughed, while another more excitable fan wrote: ‘IT’S TOBY’S FACE FOR ME WHEN REMI STARTS RAPPING.’
‘Remi’s gonna make a whole song about this LMAO,’ another said.
Others defended the 22-year-old, with one person saying Remi was ‘clearly hurt & embarrassed yet they want him to rap??’

The moment of the recoupling and Remi being booted from the villa aired on Sunday night, after first leaving fans with the cliffhanger on Friday.
Tonight’s episode saw the fall-out from the dramatic moment, with Luca now coupled up with newcomer Danica (totally against his will, in case he didn’t make that clear.)

It also saw Ekin-Su finally get coupled up with Jay, while Gemma saved single lad Davide after his incredible break-up with the Turkish soaps actress.
There’s still a long summer ahead, with the potential for heads to be turned – and we haven’t even got to Casa Amore yet.
Love Island returns tomorrow at 9pm on ITV.
