Shaughna Phillips set to confess feelings to Luke Mabbott

Shaughna Phillips will tell Luke Mabbott she has "caught feelings" for him on Thursday’s (13.02.20) episode of ‘Love Island’.
The 25-year-old democratic services officer was left heartbroken when partner Callum Jones returned from Casa Amor with Molly Smith, but she is set to put all that behind her when she makes a move on 24-year-old heating engineer Luke.
After being encouraged to pull Luke for a chat by Paige Turley and Finley Tapp, Shaughna tells him: "Let me just get it out … When things didn’t work out too well with Natalia [Zoppa] and I was like, ‘Yay, why am I yay-ing..?’ It was a weird time for me.
"So then Jess said, ‘Demi is going to have a chat with Luke’ and I was like, ‘Oh… OK’. And then I was like, why am I feeling like that, weird. I love Demi so it was very awkward for me. Watching you two sit on the daybed, I was just like, ‘Oh…’ "
She adds: "I think I like you."
However, the hunk is caught off guard as he has been getting to know Demi Jones after finding himself in love triangles since he entered the villa.
He admits: "I didn’t expect it. Have you caught feelings?"
Shaughna replies: "Yeah."
And Luke says: "You’re dropping a bomb … have you thought this over the past few days?"
To which Shaughna spills: "Weeks … Where is your head at?"
Luke then says: "Scrambled now. Me and Demi got to know each other and got close, she’s getting to know Jamie as well which put me off a bit. I didn’t want to be in that position again to feel second best, I don’t want to be in a triangle …"
Earlier in the night, Shaughna pulled her fellow love rival for a chat to warn Demi of her own feelings for Luke.
She says: "This is a very uncomfortable conversation for me – which is why I’m smiling because I feel uncomfortable right now – I feel like I want to have a chat with Luke M."
Demi replies: "Right OK. Oh God … what’s made you feel like this?"
Shaughna admits: "I think Jamie’s solidified this a bit for me. I’m just like absolutely, I don’t have feelings for you at all. I don’t feel like that for Luke, I feel like we’ve always had flirty banter back and forth.
"[In the Snog, Marry, Pie challenge] when he didn’t marry me, I was a bit like, ‘Oh OK… I thought that was going to happen’. Then when it didn’t go well with Natalia I was thinking ‘I’m happy about that, why am I happy about that?’"
A shocked Demi tells her pal: "I keep thinking I need to be open to Jamie, I can’t make the same mistake I did with Nas. But at the same time I can’t help but gravitate towards Luke. You do what you’ve got to do but obviously at the same time I’m still going to get to know Luke."
However, in the Beach Hut, Demi reveals her true feelings, as she says: "I just feel like I don’t have much luck in here. I’ve just got to hope Luke does like me. If Shaughna tells him this information then he might shut it down and come closer to me and it will solidify our connection.
"At the same time, if Shaughna tells him that and he starts acting different about me and starts being like that to her, then again at least I know it wasn’t meant to be."
