Davide’s serving Italian snack and all the girls want double portions 🥵 #LoveIsland — Love Island (@LoveIsland) June 6, 2022 Business owner Davide Sanclimenti, who is from Rome but lives in Manchester, shocked the islanders as he walked into the villa’s garden and asked “did anyone order an Italian snack?” Davide, 27, quickly caught the eye of some of the female islanders and later shared a kiss with Gemma, 19, during a game of dares in which she was asked to kiss the person she would most like to share a bed with. Despite being coupled up with Liam, Gemma said: “With Liam I do feel like there is something missing, I’m not going to lie. “And Davide is the guy I’m most attracted to… It’s still early days I guess.” Liam appeared to sense Gemma’s reservations about him, saying: “I sort of saw it coming a little bit.” Speaking about the competition with Davide, he said: “I mean, look at him. And I’ve got to compete with that. He’s a good looking lad.” Love Island airs on ITV2.
