Jacques told Paige that he was going to wait for her, but she has since then cracked on with Adam.

Tonight the pair went on their first date, which was on a huge boat, and it went very well.

When they arrived back to the villa, Paige pulled the girls over to the firepit for a debrief – and she couldn’t contain her excitement.

She said: “Honestly the most romantic date and best date I’ve ever been on in my life. It was like 10 out of 10.

“We were sat down chatting and I was like d you know what, I was just like I’m done playing it cool now, I’m just going to tell you how it is.

“I literally cannot wait to see what the future holds with you on the outside. I know its early day, I know my parents would love him, he literally said the same.”

She added: “My love island experience has been two different stories.

“A really rough rocky start at the beginning I was unhappy I did a lot of crying, I had good times too, but they’re just not compared to what I’ve got now he’s exactly what I’ve been looking for from the start.

Another said: “#LoveIsland are they like just not allowed to say Jacques’ name ??”

A third added: “The way Paige speaks about Jacques sits weird w me, he wasn’t good to her but she knows she’s being recorded no?”

A fourth added: “”Rough rocky start” is she not allowed to ever say Jacques name?”

Jacques – who is the ex of Gemma Owen – made the decision to exit the ITV2 dating show, just hours after former star Adam Collard entered the villa.

He had only just got back together after the hunk upset her after cracking on with Cheyanne Kerr, 23, in Casa Amor.

Talking about his decision to leave with The Sun, Jacques told us that he feared he would attack Adam, admitting: “I thought if I don’t get myself out things could go horribly wrong and I could get physical.”

The reality star confessed  he “couldn’t cope” in the TV villa, adding: “Doing Love Island was the worst decision of my life.”

Jacques said: “I was ready to break down.

“I was feeling so mentally drained, I just wanted to go home and get myself right.

“It broke me and I was already broken. I was crying my eyes out. I couldn’t cope.
