Hugo and Sharon were coupled up at the very beginning of the show, and are now in a friendship pairing after failing to find love in the villa so far. But over the last few episodes, Sharon has been wondering whether she could see herself being more with Hugo.
After making her feelings clear, Hugo replied, "Obviously we're in this friendship couple. And, similar to me, you don't want to be in this friendship couple forever. Ever since we had that chat were we were like, 'Look, there's nothing there romantically', we've got on so well."
He continued, "If I'm completely honest with you, I can't see anything romantic between you and me. I see you as a real sister in here now. I think you're amazing, and I want you to find someone who is 100% you. I don't see you in that way."
Fans have had ALL of the mixed emotions about Hugo friendzoning Sharon, with some praising him for being so honest, and others pointing out he was quick to shut down the first person to admit to liking him on the show.
"Catching up on #LoveIsland & I respect Hugo for being so honest with Sharon," one person wrote. Another said, "Omg Hugo was BRUTAL when he was friendzoning Sharon. Bro #LoveIsland"
Someone else put, "You can tell Hugo is there for all the right reasons and the only genuine one there. He could just pretend with Sharon to stay in the villa #loveIsland."
Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm.
