What happened on Love Island?

Earlier this week, Hugo chose to save the beauty queen during the recoupling.

The teacher made the decision in the hope that one of them may find love separately.

But then last night (July 13), Sharon admitted she was looking beyond their “friendship couple”.

Speaking to Kaz, she confessed: “Sharing a bed this time around is very different.

“I do think he is fit but is it that I just think he’s fit and nothing else?”

Kaz responded: “It’s not that you just think he’s fit because you guys actually get along. You like him as a person.”

Sharon added: “I think I did rule it out in the beginning but I think seeing qualities that were missing in Aaron and seeing them in Hugo has made me really think things through.

“He’s a really good communicator and we talk about everything and anything.”

However, viewers aren’t convinced.

One tweeted: “Lol Sharon needs to leave Hugo alone you can just tell it’s fake … #LoveIsland.”

A second shared: “Sharon will only use Hugo #LoveIsland.”

Another wrote: “Please don’t fall for Sharon’s [bleep] Hugo, she has zero interest in you and just wants to save her own skin.”

A fourth said: “Hugo has been embarrassed so much this season, I’m sure it’s taken a toll on his confidence. I don’t think it’s really fair for Sharon to want Hugo to confidently initiate a romance without him even being aware of her feelings.”

A fifth complained: “This all of a sudden Sharon and Hugo is soooooo strange she’s clutching at straws.”

Meanwhile, others admitted to liking the potential pairing.

One added: “I’m actually interested in what happens next with Hugo and Sharon, I think they’re cute.”

Hugo and Sharon previously argued after she took offence to his ‘fake’ comments.

But it appears the two have put the clash behind them, after Hugo saved Sharon from being dumped.
