A PSYCHOLOGIST has warned of gaslighting behaviour from the boys in Love Island.
After Mad Movies night, the villa erupted in drama, with tense conversations between all couples.
And celebrity psychologist Dr Arthur Cassidy has detected some worrying traits in the men, specifically Luca Bish, 23, Dami Hope, 26, and Davide Sanclimenti, 27.
Speaking for Buzz Bingo, Dr Arthur said Luca “almost choked with fury” after seeing Gemma’s conversations with Billy Brown, 23.
He said: “A more in depth analysis of Luca’s social behaviour and dynamics with Gemma reflects some of the core traits of gaslighting and guilt tripping her.
“His seemingly narcissistic outbursts and uncontrollable rage demonstrates a primitive method of protecting that which he loves.

“It was to defend himself against loss of face and feelings of shame.”
Dr Arthur also had words of caution against Davide, who raged that Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, 27, was a liar for not disclosing that she conoodled with George Tasker, 23, in Casa Amor.
He said Davide’s “emotional response was way out of proportion” – given that he had himself kissed two other girls while Ekin-Su was away.
“This is the reason that gaslighters never admit to the truth even if they are cheaters,” Dr Arthur said.

“The aim of Luca and Davide was to challenge their established partners to question their own behaviour.”
Meanwhile, Dr Arthur said Dami showed gaslighting behaviour toward Summer Botwe, 22, who he played “cat and mouse” with.
“What I’m seeing again is his apparent gaslighting of Summer calling her ‘fake’ and demeaning her self-worth,” he said.
“His motives were deliberate as he wanted to play cat and mouse games emotionally with Summer at the expense of losing Indiyah. He wants both and shows his emotional instability and immaturity.”
Dr Arthur believes there is trouble in paradise for Dami and Indiyah Polack, 23, even if the two are making amends.
He said: “Dami and Indiyah are destined for a very explosive split soon.
“He allowed his emotional regulation to get out of control as he couldn’t resist Summer nor the temptation.
“In his self disclosure with Indiyah he was manipulative in that he didn’t disclose the full truth of what he did in Indiyah’s absence.
“His cheating is never going to be accepted by Indiyah and her personal identity has been jeopardised, as has any sense of loyalty and relationship cohesion.
“Psychological research confirms that a high proportion [of cheaters] are serial or repeated cheaters with a high need for attention as they have low self esteem and self worth.
“The ego boost comes when the other woman, like Summer, begins to show love, affection, and potential for a genuine relationship.
“Dami is about to get his passport to freedom and his P45.”
But on a note on positivity, Dr Arthur sees a future for Andrew Le Page, 27, and Tasha Ghouri, 23, who have taken on obstacle after obstacle.
He said: “The positives in Tasha’s relationship with Andrew show the reality of love psychology in that pure love never runs smoothly.”
“Andrew reacted calmly when he viewed Tasha with ‘Billy the Flirt’.

“This psychological tactic is to convince Tasha that in their potential serious relationship outside Love Island, he will remain calm when love storms come their way.”
He added he thinks that Tasha will feel “psychologically secure with Andrew once the show is over”, given she has found it hard taking the brunt of public votes.
