Joining in on Paige Thorne and Luca Bish's conversation about who is punching in their respective relationships, Adam decided to give his opinion on the Turkish actress and Italian Stallion, despite the fact that they weren't involved in the discussion.

"I think Ekin-Su is punching with Davide," he said. "Davide is a really good looking lad, but Ekin-Su's fiery personality, that can make someone more attractive."

Viewers were furious with Adam's comments and suggested that the reason why the personal trainer spoke against Ekin-Su out of the blue is that she rejected him when he first entered the villa.

One person tweeted: "Just catching up on #LoveIsland Adam saying Ekin is punching…wow he's defo bitter he didn’t get a chance with her," while another added: "I wonder if Adam saying that Ekin-Su is punching has anything to do with her being the only girl in there who clearly rejected him when he arrived, whilst the other girls were all flattered by his chats."

A third viewer commented: "Nobody was talking about Ekin or Davide but Adam brings them up… I'm starting to believe the theories that Adam is in love with Ekin."

Other viewers were disappointed that neither Gemma Owen nor Paige defended Ekin-Su following Adam's comments. One person tweeted: "Why are the girls letting Adam talk about Ekin like that?" while another added: "None of the girls backing Ekin when Adam said she's punching with Davide."
