Love Island: Viewers unleash their fury at Eyal on Twitter
Love Island viewers appear to have unanimously reached the end of their tethers with Eyal Booker.
The failed pop star – who claims to be ‘chilled’ and ‘spiritual’ – enraged fans of the show on Thursday night when he took it upon himself to have a stern word with Dr Alex, to tell him he was ‘f**ked off’ with him for having a one-on-one chat with Megan.
But this merely left viewers of the show confused – and furious – given that Eyal had himself spent the evening following Megan around ahead of the coupling ceremony, trying to sway her into choosing him over Alex.
HAD it: Love Island viewers appear to have unanimously reached the end of their tethers with Eyal Booker
He told the ER doctor ‘you haven’t upset me… it’s f**ked me off’ and said ‘you have disrespected me. It’s unreasonable and unfair’.
Eyal then argued that by Alex sharing his feelings with Megan, he was trying to stop her from getting to know him.
‘You owe me respect because I have always been honest and open and I’ve been there for you and I have my own morals and values,’ Eyal sermonised.
Alex went to the Beach Hut to say: ‘He showed me more disrespect in the way he’s treated me.’
Get him out: The nation flew into a rage on Twitter over the matter, branding Eyal everything from ‘creepy and pushy’ to ‘an embarrassing petulant child’ to ‘a bossy little b***h’
Out come the memes: Eyal’s giving Gemma Collins a run for her money with a flurry of mocking memes on social media
This was then echoed by the nation, who flew into a rage on Twitter over the matter, branding Eyal everything from ‘creepy and pushy’ to ‘an embarrassing petulant child’ to ‘a bossy little b***h’.
‘Eyal is so annoying! Like mate you’re a f**king c**kblock yourself get over it,’ someone fumed on the micro-blogging site.
A second person posted: ‘Oi, Eyal, Alex doesn’t need your permission to speak to Megan, you creepy possessive weirdo!’
A third posted: ‘Eyal is ruining Love Island for me I’m about to switch off can’t take much more of his crap.’
Not a fan: The nation seemed to be in total agreement over Eyal’s behaviour
‘Eyal is one sly f**ker! How can he think that Alex should tell him everything after Eyal has been grafting on Megan? F**k off Eyal!’ came another furious viewer’s tweet.
‘911 I’ve found the worst person in the world and they are called Eyal and I’m a bit scared that his ego might explode and kill an entire villa of people,’ another person posted.
‘Eyal, you are behaving like such a petulant child! Positive vibes?! F**k off.. you’re the one creating the drama!’ someone else typed, as another echoed: ‘Eyal’s always throwing his toys out of the pram. He’s a petulant child!’
‘Eyal “I’ve worked hard to get the outcome I have with Megan” no hun your just a desperate little snake,’ someone else raged.
Another person penned: ‘Megan doesn’t deserve Alex, he’s too pure and she’s a snake so her and Eyal can slither around together and Alex can search for his Cinderella ok.’
Dramatic: Eyal was seen coaxing Megan in to choosing him over Dr Alex
During the episode, Eyal was seen condemning Alex’s pursuit of Megan in the Beach Hut: ‘I just feel like Alex owed it to me to come and speak to me.
‘He’s just gone behind my back and not given me the opportunity to have my moments with her you know. He owes me the respect to come and say it to me before he goes and does it.’
He also said to Alex: ‘Obviously, I’ve worked hard to get the outcome I have with Megan. I think, just let that be and allow me to have a chance to make something there!’
In hot water: The self-confessed ‘spiritual’ star lost his cool, clashing with Alex
Disrespected? Eyal decided to pull Alex to one side, telling him, ‘I feel like you’ve really gone and disrespected me when really all I’ve tried to do is show you the utmost respect’
Getting riled up, Alex ended up telling him: ‘You’re not letting me speak! We’re not having a conversation, you’re just getting angry.
‘I feel that in the last 24 hours, you’ve put pressure on quite a few situations. I don’t feel that you gave me the space to talk to her, so I’ve gone and had a conversation with her.
‘I just asked her, “What happened last night? Was it to do with the fact that I didn’t lay it on thicker?” And actually, do you know what, part of it’s for me to know, in the future should I be going for it?
‘I didn’t mean to upset you in any way and I apologise for that.’
Creepy: Things went from bad to worse for Eyal when Megan informed him of Adam and Charlie’s deceit
Secret plot: The pair had concocted ‘Operation Doctor Do More’, convincing Eyal to join them for an enticing chat so Alex could pull Megan to one side (in scenes aired on Wednesday)
Things developed further when Megan informed Eyal of Adam and Charlie’s wingman plot.
The pair had concocted ‘Operation Doctor Do More’, convincing Eyal to join them for an enticing chat so Alex could pull Megan to one side.
Much hilarity ensued, as the laddish duo struggled to converse with ‘deep’ Eyal, asking him questions about stars and bizarrely getting him to sniff a bracelet.
Once again Eyal was outraged: ‘I’m slightly p***** off, I won’t lie, I didn’t expect it from the boys.
‘I want to say something but at the same time, Megan has told me in confidence and I don’t want to rat her out because I think that will just screw things with me and her. So I don’t know.’
Calling them out: Deciding he has no choice but to call out the boys’ betrayal, Eyal rounded them up for a frank conversation
Deciding he had no choice but to call out the boys’ betrayal, Eyal rounded them up for a frank conversation.
He raged: ‘You came up with this little plan but you obviously called me over and to be honest, one – you’re mugging me off about what I believe in, but two – you sat there and had a plan so that Alex could go and take Megan off, and all I’ve ever been is loyal to each one of you. I’m fuming.
‘If you would have called me over and just said to me, “We’ve done this because we want to give Alex a chance to get to know her and we feel like you should just stay here, I honestly, one million percent, would have been cool with that”.’
Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm on Friday.
