The villa has been rumbled by Casa Amor in recent days and since the girls returned to the main villa last week, fans have been able to see all the Islanders together again.
Both Paige and Dami Hope saw their partners, Jacques and Indiyah Pollack respectively, couple up with new people.
Although Paige and Dami are close friends in the show, many viewers have flooded social media with theories that there could be chemistry between the pair.
The speculation reached a new level on Monday (11 July) when the results of the public's vote for their favourite couple was revealed.
Dami and Summer Botwe were in the bottom two but when the Islanders decided to save the pair from leaving the villa, viewers noticed Paige's relieved reaction.
"Now that jacques is gone it’s only a matter of time between Paige and Dami," one viewer speculated on Twitter.
Another Dami and Paige shipper wrote: "There’s deffo [sic] something between Paige and Dami."
A third Love Island fanatic wrote: "There’s this weird tension between Dami and Paige that I don't think will ever be addressed".

Paige was coupled up with Jacques until Tuesday's (11 July) episode. Jacques' final scenes aired on Love Island on Tuesday evening (12 July) after ITV confirmed his departure earlier in the day.
A Love Island spokesperson said hours before the episode aired: "Jacques has made the decision to leave the Villa. He will explain his reasons to the Islanders during tonight’s episode. We fully support his decision and look forward to seeing what’s next for Jacques."
The former professional rugby players, who is originally from Cumbria, decided to leave the show following the return of bombshell Adam Collard the previous day.
Adam, who took part in the 2018 series, showed an early interest in Paige and he pulled her for several chats within hours of his arrival.
Jacques spoke to Paige Thorne on the terrace about his love for her but feeling unable to be the best version of himself in the villa.
Paige said: "Obviously I want you to be happy and it hurts me seeing you this way."
Love Island continues tonight at 9:00pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
