What happened on Love Island?

During Sunday night’s tense coupling, AJ chose to couple up with Hugo.

Explaining her decision, she said: “Since coming into the villa, he has made me feel so comfortable.

“He has all the right morals I’m looking for in someone long term, and I would like to explore this and get to know them a bit more, so the boy I would like to couple up with is Hugo.”

Despite initially hitting it off when she entered the villa, the teacher appeared far from impressed with AJ’s decision.

In fact, he seemed gutted as his former partner Sharon Gaffka was sent packing.

Later on, Hugo explained his disappointed reaction to AJ during an awkward chat.

He said: “I was not expecting that! I want to firstly apologise because I know my body language was off then.

“It’s just really tough because Sharon has been there from day one throughout this whole experience. She’s been my best friend in here.

“Once you picked me, I knew the consequences of that for her. It was really tough for me.”

Hugo is so ungrateful – this isn’t a free holiday mate!

Hugo added: “You got to pick first and that’s what you’ve got to do. That’s fine but why me?”

AJ explained: “You’re the guy that’s been number one for me since the start. For me, you’re the guy I see something long-term with.”

However, viewers were quick to slam Hugo’s reaction.
