In a classic love triangle, Alex and Eyal are competing for Megan’s attention ahead of Wednesday’s recoupling, when she will choose between her two men. But Eyal found a way to gain an advantage and rub Alex’s face in it.
Confronting Eyal, Alex told him: “It felt a bit rude and desperate. You came over, smooched and then walked away. I found it so disrespectful.
you can’t spell betreyal without eyal #LoveIsland

“I always think you treat people how you want to be treated. I wouldn’t have done it.”
Defending his behaviour, Eyal said: “I didn’t see him there. It wasn’t malicious.
“It was done for me to reassure Megan I’m into her. It was the moment we were in.”
Viewers were unconvinced. Alex was RIGHT THERE.

But while Eyal may be looking for romance, he definitely isn’t interested in a bromance in the villa.
Feel like Eyal has just licked a sweet that Alex wanted and has just put it back with his slobber all on it knowing Alex can’t have it now #loveisland

He told the cameras in the Beach Hut that the show wasn’t about making friends – because it’s “dog eat dog”.
Love Island fans are not feeling it. But perhaps karma will come around?
I hope in 5 years time Eyal gets rushed into A&E and Alex just lets him die #lovelsland

Even so, it’s not all about Alex and Eyal. What about Megan? Did she need to go in for a second kiss?
Anyone else think Eyal is creepy.. He's so desperately cringe. I hope Alex is chosen and Eyal is booted out. Megan's no better. #LoveIsland

But as people root for Alex…
Eyal has gone well down in my estimation tonight … hope she picks Alex, that'll show him … Alex is a genuinely nice guy AND what happened to personality over looks?? #LoveIsland

…Love Island fans say Eyal would be better off with Adam, the villa’s other bad guy of 2018.
