Yesterday's show saw little of the fan favourite, and people were mightily disappointed when the other guys took part in a stripping challenge.
Chris sat the task out, remaining in bed because he was 'unwell' following his split from Olivia.
"Out of all the guys I wanted to see do that challenge, he didn't even do it. Where's Chris? #LoveIsland" one viewer tweeted.
A spokesperson declined to comment what was wrong with Chris, although some viewers noticed plasters on his arm.
One posted to Twitter: "What's wrong with Chris? Has he been in hospital @itv2? Just noticed the patch on his shoulder and plaster on his arm!!"
The only thing that seemed to put a smile on his face in last night's episode was Kem visiting him to check he was okay.
As Chris lay in bed, the other guys took part in a saucy new challenge that saw them strip off for the girls in the garden.
In tonight's show, Chris does get out of bed and seems to be feeling better.
Following his recent split from Olivia, he tells some of the girls: “Just being in bed all day yesterday gave me some thinking time about what I actually want. I do want to see out this whole experience with her.
"If we can work on things, then we’ll give it one more shot. It’s hard to go with your head at times because your heart is so overpowering."
Love Island 2017 continues nightly on ITV2.
