The 22-year-old model has had his eye on new arrival Megan Barton Hanson since her arrival and immediately made his feelings for her clear on their first date, seizing the opportunity to kiss her.
Aware Alex was also interested in Megan, Eyal decided it would be best practice to kiss her again towards to end of last night’s episode and tonight’s episode showed that he’s not afraid to do it again to win her affection.
In tomorrow night’s episode, there will be recoupling and Eyal will be hoping Megan picks him - but he could be at war with the fiery A&E medic, who slammed him as “desperate”.
During Tuesday night’s show, the Islanders were told that they would be having a recoupling with the ladies choosing who to pair up with.
Eyal bounded over to Megan and wanted to know what her thoughts on their situation were, with the model having previously confessed she is more and more attracted to the dishy doctor.
Really hoping Megan picks Alex. The one time there is a chance of things happening for him and Eyal has to come and mess things up🤦🏻♀️🤷🏼♀️ #LoveIsland— Aimee Mazzotta (@mazzotta_aimee) 12 June 2018
But, after Eyal and Megan chatted about where they’re at, Eyal snogged Megan right in front of Alex over in the kitchen in a move he claimed “wasn’t malicious” but certainly incurred the wrath of the viewers.
Alex, similarly unimpressed, said to him: “It just felt a bit like desperate to me, pushing that way. you guys come over and smooched.”
Eyal replied that it was “just the moment that they were in”, later telling the Beach Hut: “I care about people and I always have done, I care about feelings.
“But we are in this villa and you have to get want you want and I want Megan.”
Elsewhere, Rosie Williams confronted Adam Collard after his attempts to flirt with Megan well and truly backfired on him - leaving her unsure what to do in the looming recoupling
And the Islanders - and viewers - were rocked by the news that Niall Aslam has left the villa for “personal reasons”.
Love Island continues Wednesday at 9pm on ITV2.
