Love Island’s First Same-Sex Couple Lasted 24 Beautiful Hours Before Sinking
It was ground-breaking. Revolutionary. Inclusive:
Love Island Australia officially had its first same-sex couple. But before you could even say “It’s 2019”, the pair have already called it quits.
That’s right, Monday night’s episode saw Phoebe Thompson and Cassie Lansdell get together and we couldn’t wait to see how this would unfold for the rest of the season.
But merely 24 hours later, some hunky twin-truders, Josh and Luke Peckham, entered the scene and Cassie pranced off on a date leaving Pheebs a bit heartbroken.
Luke, 25, whisked Cassie, 26, away on a bit of a get-to-know-you, and Cassie said she felt “a spark”.
Little did she know that Luke’s identical twin Josh was to replace him halfway through the date – good call there, producers. We all love some twin tactics.
Phoebe, rightfully threatened, pulled her possible-GF aside and called her out on her bullsh*t, saying her feelings were just a game strategy.
“I'm getting quite emotional thinking about the decision that I made, and there's a part of me that feels like you wanted to couple up with me so you could stay here,' said Phoebe.
“It’s just like, from every conversation that I've had with you, those boys are not your type. I don't know, something just doesn't feel right to me.”
Cassie, of course, shed some tears when Phoebe said they should take a step back from whatever they’ve got going on, but Cassie. C’mon. You totally would have known this was coming.
We mean, it probably did sting when Phoebe put herself first and chucked Cass into the ~friendzone~.
“I don't want anything bad to happen because I'd just rather have you in my life as a friend,” she told Cassie.
Whelp! We wish that relationship played out a little longer, but things could always circle back around.
