Love Island fans offer kiss of life to Dr Alex
LOVE ISLAND fans have rushed to give moral support to unlucky-in-love Dr Alex George after the young doctor claimed fellow contestants were treating him like a ‘leper’.
The 27-year-old, who was humiliated on the first episode of the ITV2 reality show when no women stepped forward to couple up with him, was then rejected again during a kissing game on Tuesday’s episode.
Hayley Hughes at first refused to kiss him on the lips during a playful task. Then after giving him a smacker she wiped her mouth, later saying: ‘I just find it a bit awkward with Alex. I think that’s because he’s got a professional job or something.’
Crestfallen Alex said: ‘I feel like I’m a leper or something. You just feel like, “What is wrong with me?” Like I’ve got a black mark on me, or something.’
His dejection sparked an outpouring of support from viewers, who insisted he is a catch.
‘I legit just want to swoop in and save Alex bless him,’ posted one viewer. Another said they’d bag him in a ‘heartbeat’.
A third said: ‘Get me a date if those girls don’t want one.’
However, there was more scorn heaped on the Welsh medic (below), who was mocked for wearing a warm coat at the sun-drenched Mallorcan villa.
One fan said: ‘Alex is wearing a coat, I’ve never even SEEN a coat on Love Island.’
Alex said he feared he would have an early exit when they change partners later this week — especially as his current pairing Samira Mighty appeared to be avoiding him.
‘I think I am on borrowed time. My place on the island is definitely at risk,’ he said.
‘It’s frustrating because I don’t think I’ve had the chance yet. I just want to show everyone I have something to offer,’ he said.
