The entire nation has united behind Love Island’s Alexandra Cane as she laid in to Dr Alex George, telling him “shame on you.”
Alex has been a popular contestant on the show, and somehow the villa’s most sunburnt contestant has survived multiple dumpings despite not being in a serious couple for much of the eight weeks. But with the final just days away, he has taken the dramatic decision to mug off Alexandra.
Sure, Dr Alex has his defenders – and everyone’s entitled to quit a relationship if the love’s not there:
Unpopular opinion but Alex doesn’t deserve all this hate for being honest about a connection with Alexandra. If you don’t have a connection, so be it. Leave the poor boy alone! We may not know why he dumped her, but we cannot judge as he had his reasons. @LoveIsland#LoveIsland
WHY is everyone hating on Alex, Alexandra is clearly too intense for him, they aren’t in a relationship, he’s well within his rights to call things off and that doesn’t mean he’s in the wrong? #loveisland
But others reckon he’s a massive hypocrite. One minute he was mad at Ellie for not “trying hard enough” with him, but now he’s barely made an effort with Alexandra – and accused her of coming on too strong. What’s the deal?! Was he just playing the game and using Alexandra to get to the final?
Completely fine for Alex not to be into Alexandra and call it off, not fine to lead her on and mess her around, pretend like you’re giving it a second chance and ultimately use her to get to the final week #LoveIsland
Of course, some people had Dr Alex figured out from the start…
I barely took a breath while Alexandra was FINALLY exposing "nice guy" Dr. Alex for what he is and always has been. What a glorious, triumphant moment. I feel like I've been waiting all series for it. Crown her now. #LoveIsland
you know what, when alex first came in the villa i felt sorry for him and couldn’t understand why he couldn’t find a girl but now i totally get it. what an entitled selfish mug; wasted poor alexandra’s time just to save his own skin and i’m totally done with him. #loveisland
After all this, you have to ask: was Dr Alex ever really looking for love at all?
Alex really came on Love Island for a good ol’ jolly and a nice holiday to escape the stress of working for the NHS. He has played an absolutely blinder. He’s not interested in finding love whatsoever. #loveisland
