Love Island fans were delighted by the arrival of two new bombshells following the drama of movie night.

Tonight's (July 8) episode aired the fallout of last night's Film Festival, which saw the group learn about the sneaky comments and actions that occurred during the brief Casa Amor twist.

As the Islanders tried to make things right in their couples, Uma received a text: "Mimii, Jessy and Uma, it's time to get ready as Reuben and Josh want to take you out for drinks! Please get ready to leave the villa #FreshFacesNewPlaces #TogetherWeDate."

Viewers were excited for Mimii to have another shot at love after her partner Ayo recently recoupled with Casa Amor bombshell Jess.

"The way I'm so happy Mimii is going on a date and I'm loving how all the girls giving her a [pep] talking bigging up her confidence," one wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

Another echoed the sentiment: "So happy Mimii needed this the most."

As the girls sat down to meet Reuben and Josh over some candlelit tapas, semi-professional footballer and model Josh made a beeline for Mimii.

"I feel what you bring is exactly what I'm looking for and it's been kind of hard for me to see what's been going on with your situation because I know you deserve better than that," he said.

Ahead of arriving in the villa, Reuben revealed that he's looking for someone who's "down to earth" and "knows what they want".

"A passionate person. I'm quite a passionate person whether it's in love or in my hobbies, which are learning languages, I love musical theatre and going to the gym. I find other people with passion inspiring," he added.

Josh explained that he's "looking for something different" in a relationship, adding: "And now, because I'm single and I feel like I'm the best version of myself."

Could Josh's arrival spark a positive change for Mimii?
