Paige Thorne’s friends have called out Jacques O’Neill after he “forgot” about her on Love Island.
Over the weekend the existing girls entered Casa Amor, while the boys welcomed six new girls into the original villa.
Shortly after the ladies left, Jacques, 23, told the boys that he “won’t find better” than Paige, 24, and even said he had “never felt like this in my life.”
However, on Sunday night Jacques had his head turned by new bombshell Cheyanne Kerr as he told her he isn’t “closed off” to a new relationship and later pretending to forget about Paige saying: “Who? Who?”
The paramedic’s friends were quick to call Jacques’ behaviour out as they appeared on Love Island: Aftersun.
Host Laura Whitmore asked Paige’s friend, Morgan, if she had any advice for her pal, saying: “Obviously you are Paige’s mate, if you could give her any advice this week in Casa what would it be?”
“I definitely tell her to have a bit of fun in there,” Morgan began, as Laura jumped in: “Do you think she should get to know other guys?”
The protective friend then called out Jacques’ behaviour as she urged her friend to consider other options.
“I think she should explore anything she wants to explore, I mean Jacques is clearly doing it,” she admitted.
There were gasps throughout the audience, but Love Island fans were also quick to condemn Jacques’ behaviour towards Paige.
One fan wrote on Twitter: "The way Jacques went from "oh how I miss this girl" to "paige who???" in a second #LoveIsland."
As another raged: "I’m still fuming with “Paige who?” from Jacques, am I surprised? No, not at all but STILL #LoveIsland."
A third tweeted: "Jacques’ was crying last night looking at Paige’s pictures now it’s suddenly ‘who’s Paige’ #LoveIsland."
Another viewer wrote: "If they do movie night this yeah 100% they will add Jacques saying “Paige who” into it #LoveIsland."
Jacques was quick to tell the new arrivals that he had a “good connection” with Paige but wasn’t off the market.
"My situation at the minute… erm… no we've been getting on good with Paige and we've got a good connection,” he admitted.
"She had her test with Jay, I need mine… I need testing, that's all I'm saying, but we are getting on good… so you know, we've got something good but I need a test. I'm going to explore every connection here."
He later told Cheyanne: “If you want to know if I'm closed off, I'm not… no one has walked through the door for me and been like: 'S**t, I want to get to know her actually' until today…"
Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2.
