Want to know how to watch the 2023 Casa Amor recoupling? If you're a keen viewer of Love Island UK, you'll know that it's perhaps the biggest moment of the entire series (bar the finale), when the OG boys and girls are reunited after spending a couple of days away from each other, and in the company of other tempting singles.

This season, Casa Amor kicked off on Sunday, 2 July, and while it usually lasts three or four days, it's a bit shorter this year. In today's First Look, Love Island confirmed that the recoupling will happen today (Wednesday, July 5) and as expected, Maya Jama will be right there to ask the Islanders that all-important question—stick, or twist? 

So will Catherine choose Elom, or stick with her original beau Scott? And will Zach recouple with Molly, or return to Kady? And most importantly—what will Ella decide? We'd advise watching the Casa Amor recoupling live (or at least very soon after it airs) in order to avoid any major spoilers—so this is how to do just that, from anywhere in the world...

What can we expect in the 'Love Island' Casa Amor recoupling?

Now we know how to watch the Casa Amor recoupling, what do we think might go down during those fateful episodes, aside from enjoying more of Maya Jama's best Love Island outfits

Warning: spoilers ahead for those who aren't caught up!

So far in both villas, with the OG Islanders separated from one another, we've seen some pretty serious cracks start to form in relationships. Of course, Molly Marsh re-entered the game after a few weeks out, and so far it has appeared that Zachariah Noble has been fairly keen to reunite with his former flame.

Then, of course, we have the up-and-down relationship between Tyrique and Ella. While Ty doesn't seem to have found much of a connection during Casa, Ella and new guy Ouzy are getting on like a house on fire. So who will she choose?!

Sammy is one guy keeping his options very much open, despite getting on well with original Islander Jess—while Catherine has already had her head turned by newbie Elom, leaving her former couple Scott behind.

Whatever happens, we predict plenty of drama and heartbreak, as well as some tense words. With a surely explosive Casa Amor recoupling still to come, could this be one of the best Love Island UK seasons of all time? We'll see! We can't wait for an episode (or two) full of drama, and to find out which Love Island UK couples will stay together...
