Love Island’s Dr Alex George is left unimpressed on tonight’s show.
Alex hasn’t had the best start to the series, snubbed by the girls in yesterday’s first recoupling.
He’s ended up paired with Samira Mighty who was the last remaining single girl.
In tonight’s show, Jack Fincham and Alex speak about Alex’s relationship with Samira.
Alex explains: “I feel quite frustrated because I’m making a lot of effort with her and trying to chat to her and trying to be normal and she is basically quite dismissive.
“Part of it is that we were put together in quite an awkward scenario and because it’s awkward, it’s difficult but she’s not just letting the barriers down and saying ‘actually let’s get to know each other, maybe he’s got something to him that I do connect with.’ I haven’t been given any chance.”
Jack replies: “I agree with you, if she’s not going to give you a chance to see if it’s something that she likes then it’s pointless.”
Alex continues: “We are different people but different people can be friends and stuff, she doesn’t give me the time of day so I think I need to move on now and get to know some of the other girls.”
In the Beach Hut, Alex tells the cameras: “I have made a lot of effort to chat to her and make some civil conversation and I just think she’s just not really interested in making any effort. In fact she made that quite clear so I’m just going to move on and stop making any effort in that way. I’ll be civil and polite and things but I’m not going to go out of my way.”
Meanwhile, by the pool Samira talks to Laura Anderson about Alex.
She says: “I don’t want to flirt with him, it’s not like I’m not trying to be his friend, I am trying to avoid the conversations.”
In the Beach Hut, Samira says: “With Alex I just feel so awkward. We just don’t have a connection, we don’t really have much to say and I don’t know what Alex is thinking about me, I’ve not really spoken to him at all today.”
With a recoupling later this week, will Samira and Alex make a go of staying together or are they looking to couple up elsewhere?
Love Island 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
