Last night’s episode of Love Island was a truly action-packed episode, seeing the final goodbyes of several islanders (including heartbreaker Adam), a heart-racing dance competition and a series of blazing rows that look set to continue over the coming days.
However, the thing that perhaps had most people talking was a simple kiss. Why? Well, during a date with fellow islander Jack Fowler (that’s “new Jack”, not to be confused with the original Jack Fincham, who’s coupled up with Dani Dyer) newly-single islander Georgia planted a smooch on the semi-pro footballer.
So the question of the hour became – did Georgia go in for a kiss when Jack was going for an innocent peck on the cheek? And did she then pull him back for a second one that he rebuffed? Or was is a mutual kiss that Jack was now lying about? (RadioTimes.com’s Love Island expert Frances Taylor is siding with Jack).
Lines were drawn, obscenities were screamed and the islanders were divided. Meanwhile, at home viewers were fairly sure they knew what had happened – but others saw things from Georgia’s perspective.
Love reading twitter after #loveisland! I genuinely believe that Georgia believes it was a mutual kiss. I don't think she's 'lying' I think she interpreted the situation differently.
#loveisland ive literally watched the kiss over 10 times and Georgia was chasing his lips, and he tried to avoid hers, let's not forget she is a drama student, but the cameras don't lie, despite being a little too flirty on the date Jack's account of the kiss was 100% accurate
#loveisland Georgia and Jack did BOTH kiss but this reaction wasn't necessary, Meg pipe down because you don't have a leg to stand on, Ellie that's disgraceful and no one should disrespect another like that, Dani is a true friend who will always have your back, Laura let it go
Georgia misunderstood the situation tbh. Jack went in for a kiss on the cheek but kiss was quite close to her mouth, so Georgia thought he was going in for a kiss on the lips but missed🤷🏾♀️ That’s why she went in for another, in hope that it would be smoother #loveisland
However, as others pointed out the footage still wasn’t irrefutable evidence.
#LoveIsland in their own eyes neither jaxk or georgia are in the wrong, georgia thought jack went in for a kiss and jack thinks georgia moved to kiss him dont forget that neither of them have actually seen the video and they only know it from their perspective. food for thought.
I know Georgia kissed him the second time but it genuinely looks like they both went in for it the first time. I still like Georgia it's mean how she's being ganged up on, Laura doesn't half talk down to her🤔 #LoveIsland
If Jack didn’t want a kiss from Georgia there is no well in hell they would of been able to kiss twice. As Dani said it takes 2 to mingle so Laura has to realise “her guy” may not be as into her #loveisland
