The nation is praising Charlie for standing up for Alex on Love Island

But could we risk losing him this week? Our recap.

(Spoilers ahead for the episode airing June 14)

GIVING HIS NEWLY found testicles a spin, Alex once again stood his ground singer and spiritualist Eyal when he branded his behaviour as “disrespectful”.


Confronting the A&E doctor about his plan with Adam and Charlie to get some alone time with Megan, Eyal said:

I feel like you’ve kind of really gone and disrespected me when all I’ve tried to do is give you and show you the utmost respect.
Obviously I’ve worked hard in order to get the outcome I’ve got with Megan and I think it at least deserves you to kind of let that be and allow me to have a chance to make something there and then you haven’t been honest with me.”

As he continued to talk about him, Alex said: “You’re not letting me speak, you’re not having a conversation, you’re just getting angry.

I feel that in the last 24 hours, you’ve put pressure on quite a few situations. I don’t feel that you gave me the space to talk to her, so I’ve gone and had a conversation with her.
I didn’t mean to upset you in any way and I apologise for that.”

To which Eyal insists that he’s not upset, he’s f*cked off. There’s a difference Alex, obvs.

Later on, Alex guilt-ironed one of Eyal’s shirts because he felt bad about it. Genuinely, how is he still single?

Later on, he’s further enraged when Megan lets slip about the lads plan, but begs not to be exposed as the rat. Yeah, that went well.

On the plus side though, Jack gave us the best facial expression of the series so far.




Give that camera man a raise.

As Eyal called out the lads for mugging him off and ripping the piss out of his love of stars and green shit, Charlie stepped in to call out his territorial behaviour towards Megan – in particular, him kissing Megan IN FRONT OF ALEX.

“He doesn’t need to come and ask your permission to talk to Megan.”




However, people aren’t fancying his chances of a long and lustruous career on the island, given that he’s coupled up with public enemy no. 1, Hayley, who continues to have no idea what she wants from her coupling.

The couples voted on the two pairs who they thought were the least compatible to be put up for a public vote. With Alex & Samira and Charlie & Hayley facing the chop, who knows what’ll happen next?

And everything else that happened in the villa…

  • Jack and Dani had a 10 second kiss with tongues.
  • It turns out Adam is the most compataible with A LOT of the girls in the villa. They must have a thing for snakes.
  • Wes told Laura he’s “falling for” and she freaked (despite telling him she was ready for marriage the other day).
