Love Island‘s Jacques O’Neill left viewers confused on Sunday night after he made a remark about his past relationships while his ex Gemma Owen is in the same villa as him.
Only recently, Jacques, 23, has been struggling after his partner Paige Thorne was picked by Jay Younger at Friday’s recoupling.
During the latest instalment, Jacques decided to pull Paige, 24, for a chat while their fellow Islanders were sleeping as he admitted that has “never cared” before in his life.
He said: “I didn’t want to tell you that I cared” to which a confused Paige asked: “Why?”

Jacques continued: “Because why would I? I’ve never cared in my life, why do I want to tell people I care now?”
Paige was left confused as she pointed out: “What do you think I’m going to do with that information?”
With Jacques adding: “I don’t know, that’s why I wouldn’t want to give you the information because I’ve told you that tonight like it automatically bothers me now.
“Like what the f**k , why is it bothering me now, it wasn’t bothering me last night when you were in bed with him and talking to him. It didn’t, I didn’t care. Tonight it was making me f**king angry, it was literally making me angry and I didn’t like it at all.”
Reassuring Jacques, Paige said: “Honestly, Jacques, you have nothing to worry about.”
With Jacques adding: “I don’t doubt for a second, I believe every word you tell me. I do genuinely believe every word you tell me, I’ve just never felt like this in my life.”
To which the duo then hugged before heading back to their separate beds in the villa.
Viewers were quick to react to Jacques’ comments as they pointed out that he was in an eight month relationship with fellow Islander Gemma, 19, prior to the show. They split a year and a half ago.
Taking to Twitter, one person said: “Jacques said he never cared much for someone to Paige yet told Gemma on his first day in there that he still really cares for her..it’s not adding up #LoveIsland.”
A different account put: “Didn’t Jacques tell Gemma he still cares about her just last two weeks or so?? And now he’s telling Paige he’s never cared in his life. #LoveIsland.”
