Former Love Island contestant Jacques O'Neill has shared his thoughts about Paige Thorne and Adam Collard's kiss following Sunday (17 July) night's episode.
Bombshell Adam decided to couple up with Paige during last week's recoupling after Jacques abruptly left the villa shortly after Adam's arrival.
The former professional rugby player had been coupled up with the paramedic from Swansea, however their relationship hit a rough patch after Jacques admitted to kissing Cheyanne during the Casa Amor week.
Following his departure, Jacques made a guest appearance on Love Island: Aftersun where he was asked by host Laura Whitmore about Paige seemingly moving on with Adam and their first kiss.
Despite hoping to continue building their relationship outside the villa and admitting that he wanted Paige to be his girlfriend in his final scenes, Jacques appeared to be happy for Paige.
He reminded Laura that before he left the show, he told Paige to 'crack on' and he said that while he did believe the pair had a connection, he was happy to see her doing what she needed to do.
At the time of his exit, Jacques spoke to Paige on the terrace about his feelings, explaining he was unable to be the best version of himself in the villa.
"You mean so much to me, you know that. I've been trying to put a brave face on but things are getting to me," he tearfully told Paige.
"Basically, like, I just wish I could finish my journey off with you in here, but I'm gonna go home today," he continued.
He added: "I still want you to enjoy your time in here, just do what you need to do and listen, I'll be waiting for you.
"Just do what you have to do, don't even think about me."
Paige replied: "Obviously I want you to be happy and it hurts me seeing you this way."
Some Love Island fanatics said Paige should have left the villa alongside Jacques.
"If Paige really likes Jacques she should leave with him," the Love Island fan tweeted.
While another Twitter user speculated: "I feel like Jacques only decided to leave because he thought that Paige would follow him".
Love Island airs weeknights at 9:00pm on ITV2 and ITVHub.
