Wednesday night saw the latest recoupling and for Megan it was her first time choosing a partner, with both Alex and Eyal vying for her affections.
In last night's show, we saw Megan make her decision and she chose Eyal, leaving Alex to continue paired up 'as friends' with Samira Mighty.
But Alex continued to make a move on Megan, with the help of Adam and Charlie.
In tonight's show, Eyal is fuming after finding out about the plot.
Eyal complains: “I just feel like Alex owed it to me to come and speak to me. He’s just gone behind my back and not given me the opportunity to have my moments with her you know. He owes me the respect to come and say it to me before he goes and does it.”
Pulling Alex to one side in the garden, Eyal makes his feelings clear: “I feel like you’ve kind of really gone and disrespected me when all I’ve tried to do is give you and show you the utmost respect.”
An indignant Alex testifies: “I have been honest with you. Basically I felt that before the recoupling I didn’t get the opportunity to speak to her. You know the whole recoupling thing last night, I felt like you put a lot of pressure on that situation.”
As things heat up, Alex tells Eyal: “You’re not letting me speak, you’re not having a conversation, you’re just getting angry. I feel that in the last 24 hours, you’ve put pressure on quite a few situations. I don’t feel that you gave me the space to talk to her, so I’ve gone and had a conversation with her.
"I just asked her ‘what happened last night?’, ‘was it to do with the fact that I didn’t lay it on thicker?’ and actually, do you know what, part of it’s for me to know, in the future should I be going for it? I didn’t mean to upset you in anyway and I apologise for that.”
In spite of Eyal’s resentment towards Alex, the other boys speak out in favour of Alex and his renewed confidence in approaching Megan:
Adam declares: “I’m proud of Alex. He’s ate the opportunity up tonight. He’s got a fresh hair cut, he’s changing his outfits up, he’s taking life by the balls.”
But Eyal has a bone to pick with the guys for helping out Alex.
He rants: “I’m slightly p***** off, I won’t lie, I didn’t expect it from the boys.”
Eyal tells the boys: “You came up with this little plan but you obviously called me over and to be honest, one - you’re mugging me off about what I believe in, but two - you sat there and had a plan so that Alex could go and take Megan off, and all I’ve ever been is loyal to each one of you. I’m fuming.
"If you would have called me over and just said to me ‘we’ve done this because we want to give Alex a chance to get to know her and we feel like you should just stay here, I honestly, one million percent, would have been cool with that.”
Refusing to accept Eyal’s argument, Alex once again stands up to him, as he declares how his own advances towards Megan were completely fair.
He snaps: “Recoupling doesn’t mean you’re in a relationship. It’s honestly just a situation where you’ve chosen someone to spend more time with. Exactly as you’ve said from the start. You said that yourself.”
Love Island 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
