Love Island gave us one of the most dramatic episodes of the series last night.
Up until now, most people have been rooting for Alex. Viewers rejoiced on Friday night when he coupled up with Ellie, and we all thought this was the real deal.
However, Alex pointed out that since the recoupling, he felt that Ellie made little to no effort with him and accused her of being rude and playing games.He confronted her and all hell broke loose.
Ellie told him 'I don’t think there’s any sexual chemistry between us. I’m sitting here now ending something with somebody who I know has got a kind heart, I know is genuine and it hasn’t been an easy thing for me to do, so yeah…'

As expected, Twitter was lit with reactions, and it seems opinions are really divided.
Right, I’m putting it out there. What Ellie has done to Alex isn’t that different to what Adam did to Rosie. She said what he wanted to hear until she got what she needed. But Rosie is a hero for calling Adam out and Alex is entitled and manipulative? Ok ðŸ¤” #LoveIsland

Unpopular: Alex ISN'T upset that Ellie didn't like him, and he's not forcing Ellie with his 'entitlements'. Ellie hasn't given him ANYTHING, and all he wanted was a bit of effort, at least for a day before she decided no which I don't think is too much to ask #loveisland

Unpopular opinion but Alex did fuck all wrong during that argument. He made constant valid points and gave Ellie every chance to talk, unlike what she did #loveisland

Alex is THAT dude we’ve all been on one date with and then have to spend weeks fending off and explaining why we don’t want to see them again. #loveisland

#LoveIsland right then it's pretty obvious that Ellie used Alex to stay in the villa and all Alex did was question why she's suddenly gone off him after the recoupling. He's not desperate he just has enough brain cells to see that she's playing him.

I’m sick of the Alex pity party, Ellie can change her mind ffs, the poor girl probably didn’t realise his personality was the equivalent of a wet leaf until she coupled up with him #LoveIsland
