Since coupling up with Rochelle Humes’ sister on day one, the coffee bean salesman has made his feelings about Sophie very clear.

His behaviour towards her had even been slammed by fans of late as they branded him ‘too protective’.

So it was little surprise that he was left raging as Connagh was allowed to pick first, and took his chance with Sophie.

In his recoupling speech, the hunky model said: ‘The short time I’ve spent here, I’ve seen that she has the personality to go with her looks.

Later he let his feelings about the situation become apparent as he appeared to make a dig at the new couple. 

During his own recoupling speech, he said: ‘I’ve found myself in a situation and I feel like I’ve been snaked out a little bit’

He then alluded to people being ‘dishonest’, before going on to recouple with Siânnise – of whom he had shown no interest in before.

Meanwhile, Connor wasn’t the only one with bad luck during the recoupling as Eve Gale became the first contestant to be dumped from the villa.

The student failed to be picked for a couple, resulting her being torn apart from twin sister Jess as she left the South African villa. 

After being comforted by their fellow islanders, the duo headed off alone, where they broke down in tears in each other’s arms.

In emotional scenes, Eve urged her sibling to continue in the villa after she had offered to leave with her, telling her: ‘You know I want you to try, I wouldn’t let you walk away with me.

Torn apart:  Eve, 20, lost out as she wasn’t chosen to be in a couple, meaning she had to pack her bags and leave the South African abode for good

‘I can’t hold you back.’

While Jess later said in the Beach Hut: ‘My whole experience is going to be different without her… I’ll be thinking about her the whole time.’ 

But despite the sad news, it wasn’t enough to calm down Connor as a spoiler clip from the next episode revealed that he was ‘p****d off’ and prepared to battle it out for Sophie.
