Love Island SPOILER: Dr Alex RAGES at Ellie as he accuses her of brushing him off and being 'rude'... as she admits to having NO 'sexual attraction' to medic
It appeared that his romantic wishes were finally granted on Love Island when, over the last few days, he got close to Ellie Brown and eventually recoupled with her.
But on Monday night's episode of the ITV2 show, viewers will watch in shock as things already fall apart between Dr. Alex George, 27, and the blonde beauty - just a matter of days after becoming an official couple in the house.
In a preview clip, an irate Alex is seen confronting the 20-year-old Geordie, after insisting to Dani Dyer and Laura Anderson that Ellie had been 'playing games' with him, as she became 'rude' and distant almost immediately after he chose her.
Showdown: Dr. Alex George and Ellie Brown will be seen having a showdown about the almost immediate failure of their romance on Monday night's instalment of Love Island
Before the would-be couple's showdown, Ellie told the girls of the villa: 'So I came into this villa really wanting to get to know Alex, because I was like, "You know what, he will treat me so nice. He's such a sweetheart."
'And no offence, I was kinda looking at yous thinking, "Why does nobody like him?" Looking in, I couldn't get it. And then I've come into the villa and I was like, "I kinda get it."'
She added: 'Honestly, the thought of having sex with him is like having sex with a mate. You kinda just want to wrap him in bubble wrap and keep him sweet.'
Cold: As he sat by the pool with Dani Dyer and Laura Anderson, the A&E doctor complained about the way in which Ellie had seemed cold to him almost immediately after recoupling
Furious confrontation: Alex then confronted Ellie about the lack of affection between the pair
Megan Barton Hanson, who at one point was torn between choosing Alex or Eyal Booker before opting for the latter, concurred: 'I completely get what you’re saying, because that’s how I felt.
'My head and my heart were saying ‘go with him, he’s a gentleman, he’ll treat you exactly what you haven’t had, he’ll be the ultimate gentleman, he’s a lovely person.'
Speaking in the Beach Hut, she added of her feelings: 'If you don't have a sexual attraction in a romance with someone then you just don't have it.
'It doesn't mean you're a bad person. It's doesn't mean you think they're a bad person. It's just... s**t. It is s**t.'
Playing with his feelings? Ellie defiantly stood her ground, insisting that she'd never led Alex on
Sensing that he was on the verge of experiencing yet more disappointment, Alex said of his relationship: 'I think it’s sort of slow progress at the moment. I think she’s been a bit awkward and stuff. I don’t really know what’s going on with her.
'I need to see what’s going on. She said how much she’s going to want to make effort. It’s just a bit weird that now we’ve recoupled the effort’s gone down, not up.
Everything I do seems to do nothing. If I put too much effort it’s like putting pressure on. It’s difficult, I don’t really know what the answer is now. Have I offended her? Have I done something? For me it’s more the thing of why? Why did you recouple? It was literally recoupling done, effort zero. Bit suspicious.'
He added: 'My gut says I think she’s not interested. I think I’ve made effort, I’ve tried to talk to her, I’ve also tried to give her space, nothing makes a difference.
Friend zone: During a chat with some of the girls of the villa, Ellie admitted to them that she couldn't imagine ever having sex with Alex, as she saw him as a 'mate'
No desire: Speaking in the Beach Hut, she added of her feelings, 'If you don't have a sexual attraction in a romance with someone then you just don't have it'
'At this moment in time, I’ve absolutely without doubt given everything I can. I’ve made all of the effort. I’ve never said a bad word against her or about her. I just wondered if her heart was ever in it at all.'
After seeking the advice of fellow contestants, who urged him to tell Alex the truth, Ellie admitted: 'It’s getting to the point now where because I’m worrying so much about upsetting Alex, I’m avoiding having the conversation with him.
'So it’s coming across as though I’m being awkward and not speaking to him. It’s going to start making me look like a bad person. I feel sick about getting Alex for a chat. He’s such a sensitive soul and I really don’t know how he’s going to take it.'
As Alex sat by the pool, feet away from Ellie's chat with the girls, he appeared to be at boiling point as he said to Dani and Laura: 'I think she’s being rude at the moment. She’s very rude, very rude... I wouldn’t treat someone like this. Absolutely not.
Baffled: Ellie, a car salesperson, said that before joining the show, she was baffled at why none of the other girls showed any interest in Alex, but then 'got it' once she spent time with him
Defence: Ellie insisted that she'd done nothing wrong as she was confronted by a fuming Alex
'I am very annoyed... I'm gonna let rip. She's playing games. I'm going to call her out. She's recoupled with me and not spoken to me since.'
Trying to dissipate the storm that she could see brewing, Dani countered: 'I don't know if she's playing games.'
Added Laura: 'I think playing games is maybe a bit harsh. You know better...'
But a defiant Alex charged ahead with his theory, questioning: 'Why did she tell me, "I like Alex, I'm going to go with Alex and settle these things," and then overnight... as soon as recoupling was over, that was it.'
In another attempt to keep the medic calm, Laura offered: 'Obviously, from our side she's telling us that she's trying.'
Rejoice: Fans of the show rejoiced as the medic appeared to finally be on the road to romance
However, her attempts made things worse, as Alex raged: 'F***ing bulls**t, because not only has she not been trying she's been rude to me. If she's telling you that she made an effort that f**ks me off.'
Taking to the Beach Hut, Alex said: 'I want to have a conversation with Ellie because there’s a few things I’ve noted since the recoupling. She hasn’t really spoken to me, she’s made no effort outside of challenges or dates that we’ve been put on.
'And I think she’s been rude at times as well. I think she’s not the person I thought she was. I just wonder whether people would think that what she’s doing is playing games. I’m just throwing that out there. I just wonder if that’s a possibility.
'Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe that’s unfair. But until I speak to her I don’t think I’ll know that answer. So yeah, we need to speak. But as far as I’m concerned, she’s not the person I thought she was.'
Attraction: Soon after entering the villa, Ellie confessed to being attracted to Wes Nelson
As she spent some alone time in the Beach Hut, Ellie confessed: 'So I feel sick about having this conversation with Alex. I don’t want it to be a nasty conversation or a conversation that you can’t come back from and be friends.
'It’s not a bad thing that I haven’t gelled with the first person that I came across. That’s what you’re here for, to sort of find who you’re going to be most compatible with. And I just don’t think that we are.'
As he eventually approached Ellie for a chat, the diminutive blonde said to Alex: 'I’m very nervous about this conversation. It’s very obvious today that you’ve been very angry about the way that things are.
'The recoupling for me wasn’t about us having conversation, because I’ve been here for over a week, it’s very obvious that we can hold a conversation.
Trouble in paradise: In the teaser clip for Monday night's show, the A&E doctor, who had previously shared a kiss with Ellie, vented about her turning cold
To me it was about doing couple things like getting into bed at night, and having a date together and the first night that we got into the bed after the recoupling it was very awkward for me. I don’t think there’s any sexual chemistry between us.
'I’m sitting here now ending something with somebody who I know has got a kind heart, I know is genuine and it hasn’t been an easy thing for me to do, so yeah…'
However, things soon descended into an angry exchange and Ellie was forced to defend herself against accusations she'd led Alex on, saying: 'I did not come in [to the villa] saying "Alex is the guy for me" at all.'
'You're saying s**t Alex, I never said that,' she continued as he insisted that she had, indeed made it seem as though he was the one for her. 'It was bulls**t because I never said that.'
Doubts: Despite getting to know each other over brunch and bonding together over challenges, Ellie expressed second thoughts about 27-year-old Alex
Of the situation, Jack FIncham said in the Beach Hut: 'I feel like this side of Alex has come out because he’s genuinely had enough. You know what he’s like, he puts himself down anyway. I think he’s overthinking everything with Ellie.'
Things appeared to be far more positive between the two just a matter of days earlier, when they shared a passionate kiss after Alex opted to split his friendly coupling with Samira Mighty to choose her.
As Samira also finally enjoyed some romantic interest from new arrival Sam Bird, Alex revelled in the idea of getting to know somebody on a romantic level, following weeks of being overlooked by the girls of the villa.
However, when Ellie made her late arrival into the villa with Zara McDermott, she appeared to have her eyes trained on Alex, before admitting to other girls in the house that she found Wes Nelson attractive, while she found the doctor 'lovely'.
Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
Infuriated: Alex was left feeling dejected as he ranted, 'If she says that I'm going to f*****g explode. That is b******t'
