Although Love Island fans have been firmly on Dr Alex’s side since day one, his confrontation with Ellie has left viewers divided.
Monday night’s episode saw the new pair arguing, with Alex confronting Ellie, telling her that she had put no effort in with him since the recoupling.

However, she hit back, saying she just wasn’t into him – and that it wasn’t her fault she didn’t find him attractive.
There were plenty of people on Twitter saying the argument had revealed a different side to the A&E doctor:
Alex is showing a veryyyy different side to him tonight hmmmmm #loveisland

Some thought Alex was irrationally angry…
My opinion: Alex is being way too mad about a girl not liking him back, Ellie hasn’t done anything wrong! She just doesn’t like him back which is more than ok if she doesn’t feel it. She doesn’t owe Alex anything #LoveIsland

Some have accused him of game-playing…
Alex is super entitled, I feel like he just goes for every new girl that goes on the show simply because he believes it’s his turn. Ellie doesn’t actually owe him anything, but let’s be clear that girl still played him like a Nintendo DS Lite #LoveIsland

Some viewers thought Alex might (wrongly) think he’s got the public’s support…
LOOOOL Alex thinks the public is behind him on this one but NOPE TRY AGAIN, you are not entitled to a girl just because you’re a nice guy. Alex is cancelled #LoveIsland can we all keep Ellie though and Alex can bog off

Although many viewers were still firmly Team Alex:
Why do people not see that Ellie is in the wrong here, all she needed to do was have a conversation with Alex about how she felt as soon as she realised and he wouldn’t have been left to overthink the situation for so long??? She’s playing a game 100% #loveisland

Some thought Ellie was the one playing games…
Ellie never gave Alex a chance. Secured her place and she was done. #LoveIsland
