Love Island: Davide picks Gemma in first recoupling of series
Has anyone seen the RMT's Mick Lynch and Love Island's Davide in the same room?
We ask, because while one is enjoying a summer of media appearances, the nation's attention and some unusually good weather, and the other one is on Love Island, the two men share a very similar trait - accusing people of lying in iconic ways.

It came as some 40,000 railway workers are striking for three days this week in what is the largest walkout seen in the UK for more than 30 years.
But Davide's TV moment came first, so it could well be that Lynch is looking to the villa for communications tips as he tries to make the case for better pay and conditions and fewer job cuts and threats to pensions.
Stranger things have happened.
