We are honestly shook (Picture: ITV) Love Island viewers were shook at last night’s first look, when Jordan Hames suggested that his head was turned by India Reynolds. And tonight, the proverbial truly hits the fan as Jordan admits he has rushed into asking Anna Vakili to be his ‘chick’. Good god, man, there’s six days left, what are you doing?! Jordan talks about his conflicted feelings with villa counsellor Curtis Pritchard, saying: ‘At the time I asked her to be my girlfriend, it felt normal and natural and it was the right thing to do. But I feel like I may have rushed into it. ‘I feel like over the past couple of days I’ve had a few good conversations with India. I actually get on with her really well. I’m finding myself looking forward to bumping into her in the villa and having a conversation with her.’ Curtis asks if Jordan thinks there’s anything wrong in his relationship with Anna, but like Michael 2.0, there’s nothing he can actually point out. The 24-year-old says: ‘I don’t think there is anything wrong. I do think she can be hot-headed but I knew that anyway. Why am I thinking this now?’ [metro-video id=”1971342″ video=”https://videos.metro.co.uk/video/met/2019/07/23/2207262855691286000/480x270_MP4_2207262855691286000.mp4” image=”https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/07/23/14/16394402-0-image-a-2_1563888600272.jpg“] Wise owl Curtis says: ‘Maybe she [India] is a catalyst to make you realise that you and Anna aren’t perfect. If you are truly feeling something for someone else, it’s better to explore that now than in a year’s time.’ In the beach hut, Jordan muses: ‘India has come into the villa, we get on really well. Obviously, she’s a good-looking girl. It’s definitely something I’m going to process in my head and decide what to do in due course.’ And the next day, that course has led him away from Anna, as Jordan tells Curtis: ‘I think I’ve confirmed the location of my head…India.’ It’s kicking off (Picture: ITV/REX) We sense a storm a-coming… Curtis decides to fill Maura Higgins in on the drama, telling her: ‘I’ve been speaking with Jordan. Basically, he is a little bit confused. He has feelings for India.’ And while he wants it to be kept a secret between them, Maura sees Jordan approaching India for a chat on the sun deck before he speaks to Anna – and like any good girl friend, loses the plot. [metro-tag-post-strip] She tells Anna: ‘He’s cracking on with India. He likes India. Curtis told me. He’s pulled her for a chat right now.’ Anna, 29, immediately storms over to confront her boyfriend – and Jordan doesn’t seem too keen to hide his actions. Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.

No, it turns out the girls are in a group chat with Tulisa Contostavlos, who helped them win the show back in 2011. When chatting on Loose Women, the 31-year-old who is currently making her own musical comeback, spoke about the girl group and how proud she is of them. The Sippin’ hitmaker squealed: ‘My little muffins,’ when a picture of the popstars came up on the screen. Getting all mother hen on them, she beamed: ‘My little ones, although they’re not so little any more!.’ When asked about her time on the singing competition, Tulisa confessed: ‘Honestly, like the best experiences and the best times of my life. ‘What’s so amazing is it’s the gift that keeps on giving, because it continued.’ Tulisa reveals she’s still in an X Factor group chat with Little Mix (Picture: ITV) Thinking about her buddies, who are now smashing it in the industry, the star continued: ‘Everywhere I go and everywhere I look they’re doing amazing.’ A panelist chirped in and questioned whether or not they were still in touch, to which Tulisa proudly admitted: ‘Yeah, we have a little muffin group chat.’ However, as for going back on the show, she laughed: ‘I mean, I haven’t had any conversations so it’s something I would have to think about if it happened.’ Tulisa mentored the girls when they were on the ITV show, and saw them through to the final. She calls the girls her muffins (Picture: Getty Images) Tulisa saw them through to the X Factor finals back in 2011 (Picture: Getty Images) However, it seems without having the former N-Dubz star on their side, things might not have worked out for Little Mix. Just last month, Jesy Nelson claimed they were almost cut by producers who didn’t think a girl band could win the show.  ‘Make sure you thank Tulisa, too,’ the Shout Out To My Ex songstress wrote in a letter to her younger self, shared on Bustle. The 28-year-old continued: ‘Honestly, without her, I don’t think you would have won. [metro-tag-post-strip] ‘She pushed for you when the producers said, “what’s the point of putting a girl band through? They never win, it’s a waste of time.” ‘She convinced them. She is all about female empowerment and so are you.’ [metro-fact-box id=”7022752″ title=”Got a showbiz story?” icon=”exclamation” /] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/07/23/gemma-atkinson-dropping-hints-gorka-marquez-propose-welcoming-baby-mia-10445931/” title=”Gemma Atkinson dropping hints for Gorka Marquez to propose after welcoming baby Mia”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/07/23/strictly-proof-wont-bias-motsi-mabuse-sister-oti-10445971/” title=”Strictly have proof there won’t be any bias between Motsi Mabuse and sister Oti”]

Gemma is already looking towards the next milestone (Picture: Mike Marsland/ Mike Marsland/WireImage) Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez are officially a little family after welcoming their daughter Mia. And now, Gemma is dropping subtle-as-a-brick hints about a wedding. Hey, she gave birth to your child Gorka, the least she deserves is a shindig. The 34-year-old called up her colleagues on Hits Radio to give them an update on motherhood, and revealed that after officially naming their baby girl, she has been suggesting that Gorka should get down on one knee. Gemma told Fleur East, Greg Burns and James Barr: ‘It was quite sad because until then apparently they officially take the mum’s name, but once registered she’s an official Marquez. And I’m the only one now who’s not a Marquez in the family. ‘I said to him, “You do know now we need to get married otherwise I’m not part of the family”. He’s like “Yeah we have time, it’s OK”.’ Mia is the first baby for both Gemma and Gorka (Picture: Instagram) Gemma explained that the name Mia came from Gorka’s Spanish heritage, saying: ‘It means “mine” in Spanish. It’s a name that’s quite popular in England but it comes from Spain so we’ve got a bit of both in there.’ The former Hollyoaks actress opened up on the weekend about Mia’s traumatic birth, revealing that she lost pints of blood after suffering a haemorrhage after childbirth. And Gemma said that after she shared the emotional post, she received a flood of messages from other mums thanking her for opening up. Gemma told the hosts: ‘I’ve had loads of messages from women who’ve had similar things and you think “oh gosh I’m glad it’s not just me”, you know what I mean? Cause a lot of people say “Oh I thought it was something that I ate or some exercise that I did or maybe I walked a bit too far”. It’s just nothing to do with that, it’s just Mother Nature unfortunately.’ [metro-tag-post-strip] Mia joins Gemma, Gorka and their two beloved dogs Norman and Ollie, who are so much part of the family that Gemma considered rehoming her daughter if she didn’t get on with them. (She’s joking. We think.) Gemma said: ‘It’s crazy. Everyone said to me you’ll not love anything more than this child and I kept saying all along if she’s allergic to dogs she’ll have to live with my mum. As soon as I saw her it just changed. But there’s just one little niggle that’s annoying me. ‘Everyone who comes to see us says “Oh my God she’s beautiful, isn’t she like her dad?” … Everyone keeps saying “she’s stunning” and then “isn’t she like Gorka?” And I look at them and go “yeah even though I carried her for nine months and all this and she looks like him”.’ We’re sure Gorka, 29, is delighted.

Gorka Marquez gets emotional over his gal Gemma (Picture: WireImage) Gorka Marquez has got all emotional while praising his ‘hero’ girlfriend Gemma Atkinson. The pair recently welcomed their baby girl Mia into the world, however the new mum has since revealed it wasn’t an easy birth. In an Instagram post, the actress confessed she suffered a ‘big’ haemorrhage during childbirth and nearly died. Recalling the moment, and how far his other half has come in just a couple of weeks, the Strictly Come Dancing professional took to the social media site where he gushed over his girl. The 28-year-old wrote: ‘PROUD of YOU. My hero, my life… @glouiseatkinson. ‘After everything you went through to bring our little princess into this world and seeing you in one of the most heartbreaking situations of my life, to how you are now, taking care of Mia and giving her all the love and attention while I’m away from you both.’ He gushed over his girl (Picture: Instagram) He added: ‘I thought it wasn’t possible to love someone even more… WELL IT IS!! And times two!!’ And Gemma joined in on the celebration of love, as she commented: ‘You in your scrubs before surgery is an image I’ll never forget. I love you Gorks.’ The pair welcomed their newborn on 4 July, and have recently spoke about the traumatising birth. The former Hollyoaks star told her Insta followers that two hours after having the tot, she started to feel unwell and called for assistance. The star almost lost her life to a haemorrhage (Picture: @glouiseatkinson) ‘I was having a hemorrhage,’ she explained: ‘A big one & I lost a lot of blood.’ The star went on: ‘I don’t remember much other than having around 9 doctors in the room, some injecting me, hooking me to drips, physically pulling clots out of me & one comforting Gorks who was beside himself in the corner. ‘I woke in another room with Gorks & my family there, Mia sleeping soundly & a lovely midwife named Di who was checking my notes.’ She added: ‘The trauma was over & thanks to our NHS & incredible hospital staff we were ok.
