13 July 2019 NEWS
The English language is frequently mangled onLove Island… and let’s face it, usually it’s Tommy Fury doing the mangling.
But while the professional boxercoined the terms ‘refreshify’ and ‘equivalate’in the villa this series, he’s not actually the one slipping up in the vocabulary department this time.

His use of the term “chinwag” took the ladies by surprise, but Maura clarified that she knew what the word meant… now.
“I know what a chinwag is thanks to him,” she explained to Amber Gill, before admitting: “At first I thought it was a dance.”
Maura’s hilariously incorrect “chinwag” definition was yet another example of whyshe’s the best thing aboutLove Islandin 2019:
On the other hand, viewers weren’t quite as keen about Curtis shoehorning “chinwag” into theLove Island lingo for the year:
But as soon as you complain about Curtis’s pensioner chat-up lines, he goes straight up gangster while explaining his love triangle dilemma with Maura and Francesca.
“I’m talking like a f**kin’ G here with two girls on me,” he joked. “I need to pick one or I’ll push both of them away.”
Ummm, we’ll pass on that too:

Lingo aside, it’s been a rough week for Maura, since shethreatened to quitthe villa if she didn’t get to crack on with Curtis in the latest recoupling. Unfortunately for her, Francesca got to pick before her in the line-up andswiped the ballroom dancer.
