Luca stated that he hought the presenter was "punching" above his weight with his wife of seven years, Michelle Keegan – meaning she was the better looking party – which prompted some confusion online.

One person wrote: "Luca what did Mark Wright ever do to you please?" As another said: "Luca's random dig at Mark Wright!?"

Mark also reacted to the comment on social media. Tweeting from Sydney late on Monday evening, he said: "8:30am in Sydney…. minding my own business (literally sleeping) Waking up like…. What did I do? #luca."

Mark Wright tweeted his confusion over Luca's comment

Many more fans responded to Mark's comment in the replies. One said: "He's just jealous that you're married to Michelle. I personally think you're both brilliant."

Another added: "Maybe he sees him and Gemma as the next you and Michelle. Not even close #Luca not even marginally close #Luca."

Meanwhile, during the same conversation, fans of the show were left shocked by Adam's comments on Ekin-Su when he stated she was "punching" with Davide.

"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.

"Just catching up on #LoveIsland Adam saying Ekin is punching…wow he's defo bitter he didn’t get a chance with her," said one fan, 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."
