Love Island Viewers Heartbroken As No One Picks Show's First Disabled Contestant Hugo

Last night, Love Island fans rejoiced as the series finally returned to our screens. As per in the first episode, the girls were asked to step forward for the boy they fancied, who would then choose who he wanted to couple up with.

But viewers found it painful to watch when, the show's first contestant with a disability, Hugo, was left standing when not a single girl stepped forward.

Hugo, 24, was born with a club foot and before going on the show explained he wanted to set an example.

"If I can set a great example and show people that having a disability doesn't mean you can't be mainstream or it doesn't mean that I don't have a right to find love and things like that, then that would be great," he said.

"I would love to be the torch bearer for that."

Last night, viewers were introduced to the PE teacher from Hampshire, but were gutted when he wasn't chosen.

Sitting on 'the subs bench' Hugo eventually coupled up with 25-year-old Sharon Gaffka, a civil servant from Oxford.

One person wrote: "I want to give Hugo a hug. They did him so dirty. I would of picked him. He's the life of the vila."

And one said: "Awh no one picked Hugo I hope he wins."

And a fourth tweeted: "Why did I feel like a sad mammy watching their kid not get picked for the team at a school sports day when none of the girls wanted Hugo. He's such an underrated cutie."
