Love Island SPOILER: ‘I’d much rather be with Paige than Gem’: Jacques warns Luca about his ex Gemma
Jacques is set to cause another kick off in the villa as he warns Luca about his ex Gemma during Tuesday’s episode of Love Island.
Monday’s explosive episode saw Ekin-Su, 27, stir the pot as she told Jacques and Paige that Gemma, 19, had suggested her head could turn if the right man walked along, leaving Luca, 23, sulking.
And with doubts still in Luca’s mind, he quizzes Jacques, 23, about his past relationship with Gemma and how she acted.
Trouble in paradise: Jacques is set to cause another kick off in the villa as he warns Luca about his ex Gemma during Tuesday’s episode of Love Island
As they lounge on the day beds, Jacques says: ‘I’d much rather be with Paige than Gem. Like 1000%.’
‘Like I could literally go out with Paige, be myself and the next day wake up and have no issues, at all. Even if I’d said something wrong, or anything. But if I did that with Gem I’ve got questions to answer the next day.’
Later Gemma learns of the conversation, potentially causing another fall out between her and Luca.
Drama: Monday’s explosive episode saw Ekin-Su, 27, stir the pot as she told Jacques and Paige that Gemma, 19, had suggested her head could turn if the right man walked along, leaving Luca, 23, sulking
Awkward! With doubts still in Luca’s mind, he quizzes Jacques, 23, about his past relationship with Gemma and what she acted like
It comes after Gemma told Ekin-Su to ‘keep her f*****g nose out’ of her business and accused the Turkish actress of spreading rumours about her coupling with Luca, in Monday’s episode.
Ekin-Su had told Paige Thorne and Jacques O’Neill that she’d heard Gemma, 19, tell Dami Hope that her head could be turned from Luca Bish, who she is coupled up with.
Michael Owen’s daughter fumed at her fellow stars for Ekin-Su’s ‘d***head behaviour’, before confronting her face-to-face, saying: ‘Maybe you should keep your nose out of other people’s business and shut up.’
The revelation caused Luca to admit to Gemma that he wants a future with her but thinks they’re ‘on different pages’ in a tense conversation, which saw him question whether they should remain together.

Clearing things up in a confessional, she said: ‘If someone comes in who is 100% my type, who I get on with better than Luca and am more attracted to, then I’ll get to know them. Do I think that’s likely? No.’
Keeping her cool, Ekin-Su told the camera: ‘Why is it me again? How is everything coming to me? Dami has an opinion. This is Dami’s quote, not me. I’ve done nothing wrong but its so easy to blame me in here, isn’t it?’
Setting the record straight to Luca himself, Gemma pulled him aside to say: ‘You’ve probably heard most of it anyway. Dami was reading everyone’s mind.
‘He said if someone came in that was 100% for me and that I had better chemistry with than you then I’d be open to getting to know him.
Ouch! Gemma told Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu’ to ‘keep her f*****g nose out’ of her business and accused the Turkish actress of spreading rumours about her coupling with Luca
‘I didn’t say any of it, Dami was doing the speaking, I just didn’t disagree and said, “Whatever,” at the end.
Earlier on Dami had attempted to ‘read’ Gemma’s mind, telling her: ‘You’re happy with Luca right now. I feel like it would take a lot for your head to turn but there is a small chance that it probably could if someone really came in that was 100% you.
‘I feel like that is where the confusion would probably come for you because we’re not here to play games. I feel like you’re still open in a sense, probably more open than Luca.’
Eek: Ekin-Su had told Paige and Jacques that she’d heard Gemma tell Dami that her head could be turned from Luca who she is coupled up with
Gemma confessed: ‘Yeah, that was quite impressive. I don’t think you’re that far wrong.’
When Ekin-Su overheard and told her fellow Islanders, Gemma approached her saying: ‘You have started this, you’ve made drama over nothing! You had no right to say that and knew that was going to cause s***.’
Later, Luca admitted to Gemma that he wants a future with her but ‘doesn’t want to get hurt’ in a tense conversation, which saw him question whether they should remain together.
He told her: ‘My head wouldn’t turn so I feel I am more into you than me. We’re on different pages. I want a future with you, I’m obsessed with you. I don’t want to get hurt and I don’t give a s**t who walks through the door.’
Gemma replied: ‘Ok and my head’s with you but I don’t want to say 100% there won’t be someone I have a better connection with because I don’t know that.’
When he started talking, she abruptly said: ‘Let me speak. You might as well ask me to be your f*****g girlfriend.’
He was finally able to say, ‘Until today, I couldn’t be happier with you.’
Shocked: Setting the record straight to Luca (pictured) himself, Gemma pulled him aside to say: ‘You’ve probably heard most of it anyway. Dami was reading everyone’s mind’
