In fact, some are overjoyed that Alex was dumped in the penultimate episode of ITV2’s reality show following a public vote…

And many were shocked the 27-year-old made it this far…
Alex has come and wasted everybody's time. I cannot believe he lasted this long #LoveIsland

The biggest achievement of Love Island is Alex surviving 56 episodes and being in a romantic couple for 3 of them #loveisland

Why? From the contestant’s brutal dumping of Alexandra after their Ferrari date, to how several other islanders were dropped from the show to preserve the unlucky-in-love doctor, viewers were no longer charmed by his nice-guy image.

Alex can’t even catch a tan… let alone feelings #loveisland

Fortunately, fans’ thoughts about Alex were served to him by ex-partner Alexandra’s mum last night. During the episode’s parental visit, she called Alex out on his behaviour towards her daughter, saying: “When you recoupled and you seemed to expect her to be grateful, and you I think made some comment: ‘What’s the matter with her, why she’s so grumpy?’
“What did you expect a girl to feel like after she’d been rejected and then you deigned to bring her back to her side?”

"Oh Alex I'm not sure what show you thought you were coming on"
"You seemed to expect her to be grateful"
"You're not nearly as red in the flesh as you look on TV"
Alexandra's mum is absolutely savage #LoveIsland

Although fans were sad that Alexandra had to be dumped from the island alongside Alex…

Can’t we just dump Alex and keep Alexandra #LoveIsland

…Most think the remaining couples – Jack and Dani, Laura and Paul, Josh and Kaz and Megan and Wes – fully deserve to reach the final.
