Love Island’s Latest Bombshell Jacques Shares Very Unusual Dating Ick

Well, we think his fellow Islanders won't have any issue with this one.

Love Island has taken a page out of Ex on the Beach’s book, with the former BF of Gemma Owen moving into the villa.

23-year-old Jacques O’Neill entered the villa on Sunday night and it’s safe to say he’s turned a few heads so far, particularly Paige’s, with the girls wanting to know more about the rugby player and what he’s about.

However, as they’re all not of Ekin-Su breed, they’re being a little bit reserved to begin with, given that Jacques ex of eight months is fellow Islander, Gemma Owen.

And despite Gemma admitting that she’s OK with seeing the Islander crack on, it looks as though there’s still chemistry there between the pair, with Jacques pulling Gemma for a chat and the pair looking rather smitten to be seeing each other.

But for new girls looking to woo Jacques, he does have one particular ick that practically cost him a blossoming relationship before Christmas and well, it’s rather different.

“I was seeing this girl and it was just before Christmas and she started singing Christmas songs in the car and it went through me – it gave me the ick bad,” the 23-year-old told ITV.

Thankfully for him though, it’s not winter Love Island so hopefully, Jacques will avoid his biggest ick while tanning in the villa.

According to The Sun, Gemma and Jacques were together for almost a year, with their relationship ending sometime in the last 12 months.

However, in an early episode of the show Gemma said she had been single for “a year and a half” so they might have ended things much longer ago.

Either way Jacques’ entrance is set to cause a big stir and we cannot wait.
