Love Island viewers react to Lucinda and Aaron flirting after Brad's exit

·2-min read

Warning: spoilers ahead.

Another day, another head being turned in the Love Island villa. Just 24 hours after Lucinda Stratford’s partner Brad McClelland left the show in a shock dumping, Lucinda and Aaron Francis surprised fans after flirting with each other in tonight’s episode. Um, did we miss something?

The 26-year-old's shock exit came after another villa plot twist, which saw Brad and Lucinda being voted as the 'least compatible' couple. The results of the public vote meant the pair had to decide which one of them would leave the villa, with Brad offering to head home in order to allow Lucinda to stay on the show.

There were lots of tears from the 21-year-old following Brad's departure, and the show's viewers and some of the Islanders had strong opinions on whether Lucinda should have left with Brad or not.

But in tonight's episode we saw Islander Liam telling Lucinda that Aaron fancied her, the pair getting to know each other better, some weird leg stroking, and Lucinda admitting that Aaron was her "number two" after Brad.

Speaking in the villa's beach hut, Aaron also said: “I’m very attracted to Lucinda. She’s a beautiful girl. We have this little thing where even if we’re in a group, it’s like lingering eye contact and little smile. I don’t think she has that with other people.”

Of course, viewers took to Twitter to share their views on the potential new couple. One fan wrote: "Sorry did I see that right?? Lucinda and Aaron?!” while another added," Really Aaron and Lucinda... Brad hasn’t even gotten on the plane yet. the wound is still fresh”. And it turns out plenty of other fans were shocked, too.
