‘What do you mean? What’s he saying?’ says Jacques, getting riled up.
‘Immature, I think it was. Something like that,’ the girls tell him, causing the furious star to stand up, getting ready to confront Adam.
Jacques is then seen angrily pulling Paige for a talk, telling her of Adam: ‘Who the f**ks he? Just another geezer who’s been on the show. He’s f**king nothing mate. Do you know what I mean?’
‘Alright and then keep that in mind,’ Paige tells him in a bid to calm him down. ‘You don’t need to rise to it and be like bitey with it, do you know what I mean? What does it actually change? Nothing.’

Can I have a word? Jacques is then seen angrily pulling Paige for a talk, telling her of Adam: ‘Who the f**ks he?’
‘You know what I get like, if a boy’s gonna chat s**t behind my back, I don’t f**king have it.’ Jacques insists.
Later in the teaser clip Jacques is seen breaking down in tears as he tells Paige he wants to leave the villa.
‘You mean so much to me, you know that. I just wish I could finish my journey with you in here,’ he tells a tearful Paige.
During Monday’s episode, Adam entered the villa while the boys were away on a spa day and he immediately made a beeline for Paige to find out how her relationship with Jacques is at the moment.
Calm down: Paige tells him: ‘You don’t need to rise to it and be like bitey with it. What does it actually change? Nothing’
Paige gushed over Adam’s physique, telling him he’s the tallest guy in the villa, before declaring in the Beach Hut: ‘He’s so fit. No I’m not going to lie, he is very fit.’
By the pool, Adam told her he is boyfriend material, explaining: ‘When I’m with someone, I’m 100% with them, I’ve never cheated on any ex-girlfriends or anything like that.
‘Coming off the back of this, everyone’s going to get loads of attention and I’ve been there and done it. I don’t need to get that out of my system like some guys do. I feel like some of the guys in here will want to that.

Tears: ‘You mean so much to me, you know that. I just wish I could finish my journey with you in here,’ he tells a tearful Paige
Paige replied: ‘100%. I’m not ready to train somebody else up to be a boyfriend. Like you’re either boyfriend material or you’re not.
Adam asked: ‘What do you think Jacques will be like with me and you speaking?’
Paige: ‘I don’t think he’ll like it. I think he’ll be intimidated.’
Following her chat with Adam, Paige went over to Gemma and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu to ask what they thought about her getting to know him.
Gemma, who dated Jacques prior to Love Island, encouraged her to get to know Adam and to not feel bad about it, given Jacques infidelities during Casa Amor.
Gemma said: ‘You need to throw yourself in more to this. You’d be more than stupid [if you didn’t]. Please, please, please do not think about Jacques, just think about yourself. He didn’t think about you in Casa and I’m sorry, karma’s a b***h.’
