You know those thin French pastries that look like pancakes? Crêpes? How do you pronounce them: cray-ps or creps?
That’s the all-important question posed to Love Island fans after watching a chat about ‘lad lingo’ between Jack and Alex. On last night’s recap show The Weekly Hot List, which features cut footage from the last week in the villa, the two discussed the meaning of ‘sort’, ‘peng’ (seriously attractive), ‘chirpsing’ (flirting) and, most importantly, ‘crep’.
While Dani Dyer’s white-toothed partner argued ‘creps’ means a pair of trainers and ‘cray-ps’ refers to the pastry, Dr Alex argued that ‘creps’ is only a word for the food*. “I think a ‘crep’ is quite clearly basically like a pancake with chocolate in it,” he told the Beach Hut.
