Has Hugo finally found love in the villa?

Love Island viewers have accused AJ of ‘forcing feelings’ for lovable teacher Hugo.

The 28-year-old hair extension technician turned heads after she entered the villa as the latest bombshell this week.

But during last night’s show (July 15), AJ appeared to set her sights firmly on Hugo, 24.

How did Love Island viewers react?

However, Love Island viewers believe AJ is playing a game.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “AJ is grafting Hugo because he’s a safe bet, you can see it in her face she’s not interested.”

A second added: “AJ is not interested in Hugo one bit. She just knows how popular he is. It’s lovely Dr Alex all over again. So annoying when they use them. #LoveIsland.”

Another complained: “I think AJ’s nice but I hope she’s not forcing it with Hugo, knowing the public love him, like Demi did with Naz.”

A fourth said: “Am I the only one suspicious of AJ liking Hugo?”

In addition, a fifth tweeted: “It’s great to see Hugo getting some attention #LoveIsland but I have to agree with Jake, I think AJ really wants a bit of Teddy.”

Meanwhile, others believe the potential new couple are well suited.

One shared: “Hugo is actually so natural with AJ this is the first time he’s not overcompensated or tried to act different with a gal to graft #LoveIsland.”

A second agreed: “AJ and Hugo I’m feeling that.. I’m just hoping it goes somewhere.”
