Love Island's Hugo Hits Back At Dr Alex Comparisons After Brutal Recoupling

Love Island is back on our screens, and already things are getting steamy under the Spanish sun.

Our Islanders have already all coupled up with one another, affirming who is everyone's type on paper, and already sparks are beginning to fly (we've seen toe-sucking already, guys).

However, it's not been love at first sight for all the Islanders, with poor Hugo Hammond failing to have any girls step forward for him at the first coupling ceremony.

The PE teacher and cricket player, 24, took the rejection in his stride, however, and ended up with civil servant Sharon Gaffka on day one. Though, despite the earlobe sucking, she seemed less keen on him than he was on her.

Hugo's current run of poor luck with the ladies, plus his affable personality and well-spoken demeanour, saw many on Twitter compare him to similarly lovelorn Dr Alex George. The perpetually sunburned season 4 favourite failed to win any hearts on the show, but was a hit with viewers as he struggled to find love in the villa.

"Dr Alex walked so Hugo could run," wrote one Love Island fan.

"Hugo, darling, you're the new Dr Alex, I'm so sorry," a second said.

"Hugo is the Doctor Alex of this year, isn't he?" a third laughed.

But Hugo doesn't see himself as the new Doctor Alex, instead claiming himself to be an all-new breed of Islander.

When asked about similarities between himself and medical professional, Hugo told Tyla before entering the villa: "I don't want to compare myself to anyone and I like to think I'm an individual and there's no-one quite like me.

"When I left to go to Spain, all my family just told me to be myself, and I'm looking forward to being myself in there.

"I think I'm a good different to previous Islanders - at least, I hope I am. I wouldn't compare myself to anyone. I'm Hugo."

Here's hoping Hugo tans better than Doctor Alex, anyway...
