When Ellie chooses Wes as one of the three boys to go on a date with, it prompts Laura to head to the Beach Hut where she confides: “Obviously I’m not over the moon that Wes is going on a date with Ellie but I’m going to try and be controlled.
“I feel a little bit sad. I am just feeling so insecure and it’s rubbish. I’m a confident woman, what is wrong with me?!” and later admits to the girls: “You know when you can just see something happening before it happens? I just think Ellie and Wes will get together 100 per cent. I just feel like he’s bored of me. I just get this feeling. You get a gut feeling.”
The whole drama begins unfolding at the beginning of Monday night’s episode when Laura asks Wes if he fancies Ellie. Which, let’s face it, is never a good question.
Anyway, Wes says: “I said she’s a good looking girl but every girl in this villa is attractive.”
“So you fancy all the girls including me the same?” Laura retorts, to which Wes replies: “I’m not saying I fancy all the girls the same. I appreciate everyone’s beauty but there’s no one I fancy as much as you.”
But then the next day, Wes joins some of the boys for a chat and reveals he’s potentially having doubts about his relationship with Laura in the villa.
“Mate, I have not had a single chat with one other girl other than Laura since I’ve been here,” says Wes, to which Adam replies: “So why don’t you change that up?”
Um, is he the best one to be giving out advice?
Wes replies: “That’s what I’m saying because I’ve been so comfortable with Laura, I’ve not even thought I could be happier.”
Later in the Beach Hut, he describes Ellie as being “really attractive” and “my type on paper”, adding: “I’d be lying if I said she wasn’t.” Later in the episode Wes also says he supposes Ellie “is what I would be looking for”. Crikey.
Hardly surprising that Laura is seen confiding that she is “a bit anxious about the whole situation…I just don’t like feeling jealous, it feels embarrassing.”
Speaking to Rosie, Laura then admits she feels as though she is “chasing [Wes] about”.
“I feel like he was all over me at the start and now I feel like I have to ask for a hug,” explains Laura. “I’m not like this in real life. I’m actually annoyed in myself for feeling [like this]… This is not what I want in a relationship.”
After two weeks, is it all over for Wes and Laura?
