Love Island Fans Are Confused Over Rachel's Explanation Of Coq Au Vin

The latest instalment of Love Island brought plenty of drama with the Sunday night's episode ending on yet another cliffhanger.

But it was Rachel Finni and Brad McClelland's fireside chat that really set tongues wagging as the pair discussed their love for French cuisine.

Self-confessed foodie Rachel, 29, left suitor Brad, 26, stumped by asking if he knew how to cook the classic French dish coq au vin, describing it as "duck with wine au français".

Brad admitted he "didn't have a f***ing clue" what a coq au vin is, and it seems he's not alone as Rachel's explanation of the dish wasn't quite right either.

The classic French dish actually consists of chicken (not duck) braised in a red wine sauce, as Twitter users were quick to point out.

"Catching up on love island to hear Rachel call coq au vin duck?!" one wrote. "Sorry did everyone else hear that orrr? Literally has chicken in the name."

Others were quick to praise Londoner Rachel's self-assurance, with one gushing: "Rachel's confidence is off the charts tho. First walking in with them heels, then telling Brad that coq au vin is a duck dish."

A third tweeted: "I think I'd pull more blokes if I had the confidence to say, without hesitation, that coq au vin was 'duck wiv wine'."

And one write: "Me watching Rachel say coq au vin is duck with confidence when it is a chicken dish. Love her."

Twenty-nine-year-old Rachel was the latest bombshell to shake u the dating show after bursting onto screens following last week's recoupling ceremony.

The Londoner said she wanted to enter the show as she's "scraped the bottom of the dirtiest barrels" when it comes to her dating life.

She said: "I think it's an amazing way to spend the last year of my twenties, doing something that fulfils me emotionally as well.

"It's more than going on Love Island for the sake of it. I'm doing it because I love the show and I need someone to marry me."
