LOVE Island fans have turned on Curtis Pritchard, branding him “fake” after he told newcomer Jourdan that he wants to dump Amy Hart for her.
Curtis, 23, has been coupled up with his “half girlfriend” Amy since launch night – but has now admitted that his head has been turned.
Last night, viewers saw the professional dancer in turmoil as he admitted that he was interested in “getting to know” 24-year-old beauty Jourdan after Amy and the rest of the girls were whisked away to Casa Amor.
He questioned why his head was turning despite believing that he is happy with Amy – and things only got worse in the sneak preview for tonight’s show.
Fans were horrified as they saw Curtis tell Jourdan that he would choose her in a re-coupling ceremony, telling the model: “Right of this second, I’d choose you.”
Jourdan was then shown gasping as she asked: “Are you sure?”
Flocking to social media, viewers slammed Curtis’ comments – with many claiming that he changed his mind after learning he and Amy weren’t the public’s favourite couple during last week’s dumping.
One tweeted: “Known all along Curtis never really fancied Amy, always came across forced and fake to me – like someone acting really hard to be exactly what the public would want them to be, the sweet romance with Amy and bromance with Tommy.
Clearly researched previous winners.”
Another seethed: “Curtis realised him and Amy aren’t popular with viewers and straight away starts trying to get out of their couple. He is such a fake.
Even though I don’t like Amy I do think she genuinely has liked him all along.”
A third said: “Amy 100% deserves better than Curtis, he’s complimented her every single day telling her how stunning she is, for him to say now there is no physical attraction is just harsh.
“Shows that he’s been playing her this entire time.”
Despite Curtis’ interest, Jourdan has previously admitted that she only sees a romantic connection with Danny Williams, who she kissed and shared a bed with last night.
Meanwhile, Amy has been hugely loyal to her “half boyfriend” while in Casa Amor, leaving Curtis a pair of underwear before she was moved to the other villa.
The blonde beauty has regularly shared her concern that Curtis will have replaced her with another girl, with she and Amber Gill both worried about what the boys are up to in the other villa.
