Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham5 of 15

Dani and Jack's HUGE row

Everyone was left in despair after Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham had their first major row. It all kicked off after Jack failed three of the questions on the lie detector test but she Essex girl was mainly annoyed after he failed the question on his head being turned on the outside.When Dani confronted her other half things didn't go down well and they went on to have a row, with Danny Dyer's daughter storming off and Jack branding her actions "pathetic".Luckily they kissed and made up the next day and all seems to be forgotten about withJack even winning over Eastenders' Danny Dyer.Telly tally: 6 (It was upsetting but we didn't actually cry)

Samira is distraught as Frankie is sent home

There have been a couple of notable teary times from Samira Mighty. Firstly, she cried in frustration to Megan Barton Hanson, confused at why no one ever fancies her (which is a fair enough question because she's mega-babez). And when Samira finally DID find love with Frankie Foster, the public cruelly voted him out just days later. Samira broke down, crying, "I just don't understand."NEITHER DO WE, SAMIRA.She later left the villa for her man but it then came to light that he apparently cheated...Tear tally: 9 (mostly because she also had to put up with Alex in the first week)

Megan Hanson Barton and Wes Nelson7 of 15

Megan breaking down over her insecurities

Following that lie detector test where all of the boys failed at least one of the questions, poor Megan was left crying after Wes lied and said she WAS wifey material but the test revealed he was lying. Opening up to her boyfriend she broke down in tears and revealed her insecurities about her former jobs. She explained, "If you had a son that was good at everything like you are - smart and intelligent - would you want them to come back with a girl that's done glamour modelling and stripping. "You'd want them to get with a girl who is smart; like a doctor or sensible Sally who works in an office... You know that I'm embarrassed about my past and I know if my brother brought back a girl that has done the jobs I've done - it's not ideal."Luckily, Wes was there to comfort his lady and reassured her.Tear tally: 8 (because after opening up about her insecurities we all became Team Megan)

Zara Holland was stripped of her Miss GB title after having sex with Alex Bowen. She broke down in tears, telling the other girls she felt like she'd let her family down and was worried that people would judge her. The girls rightly assured her that people would be fuming at the decision to strip a young woman of the title because she had sex. Hear, hear!Tear tally: 7

Camilla Thurlow cries while Johnny Mitchell snogs Tyla Carr

Camilla Thurlow was ALL of us when she cried on Marcel Somerville's shoulder, while her love interest Johnny Mitchell stuck his tongue down Tyla Carr's tongue (who has since had a baby with a mystery man, BTW).

I think this is always end up going to me."But Camilla was the real winner in the situation after delivering THAT feminism lesson to Johnny and bagging Jamie Jewitt.

Amber Davies11 of 15

End of the road for Kember?

It very nearly looked like the end for Love Island 2017 favourites Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies. Kem revealed to Amber that he felt friend-zoned and mugged off after a re-coupling. Viewers could hardly breathe as Amber cried, "I just don't think I'm the right one for you at all. If I'm making you unhappy then there's no point."It was a precarious moment, but thankfully the pair became boyfriend and girlfriend before going on the win the show and split the money. Oh but they split up a few months later.Tear tally: 6

It was the best thing you did for me. It was huge. My biggest fear in life is rejection. It doesn't scare me now. Now we've got something deeper than if we had a stupid thing.
