Love Island fans were left in shock during Wednesday's (6 July) episode when Jacques O'Neill's shorts became the focus of a very steamy scene.
Jacques decided to focus his attention on new girl Cheyanne Kerr and the pair took to the pool, despite the rugby player still being coupled up with Paige Thorne, who is still in Casa Amor.
Take a look below:
The situation became flirty quite quickly as he sat with his legs open, with Cheyanne snuggled up in front of him. Something beneath the water caught the 23-year-old cabin crew worker's attention.
“Are you hard?” she whispered, while looking down at Jacques’ shorts.
Jacques seemingly confirmed Cheyanne's suspicions as he replied: "If you get out it will probably go down."
Fans were not prepared for when the pair left the pool and the camera focused on Jacques’ crotch as he awkwardly adjusted his shorts.
Viewers took to Twitter to complain and called out the ITV series for including the clip after a watching a brutal cliff-hanger before the upcoming recoupling.
"NOT THEM ZOOMING IN ON JACQUES’S HARD ON," one disappointed fan tweeted alongside a meme of last year's contestant Chloe Burrows.
Another disgruntled fan reacted with: "Nah that’s an ofcom complaint right there wtf do you mean they’re showing close ups of Jacques hard bulge…"
A third shocked fan wrote: "NOT JACQUES HAVING A HARD ON HELP."
Another viewer joked: "The camera man zooming in on Jacques shorts".

Earlier in the episode, Jacques and Cheyanne shared their first kiss. In the main Villa, Jacques and Cheyanne headed to the terrace where Cheyanne said she was keen to know how his earlier chat with Mollie Salmon went.
Jacques replied: “How did my chat go?”
As he put his arm around Cheyanne he added: “Aww are you getting cosy now I only want you?”
Jacques went on to explain how he told Mollie he only sees her as a good friend and nothing more.
He confessed his feelings for Cheyanne as he leaned in for a kiss: “I told you I only wanna get to know you.”
Fans will have to wait until Thursday (7 July) to see if Jacques dumps Paige in favour of Cheyanne after the episode ended shortly after host Laura Whitmore arrived in the Villa.
