While someone else wrote: ‘The way i giggled when Ruchee jumped into bed and André cuddled her. They’re so cute together omggggg.’
Ruchee and Andrew coupled-up just minutes before George was dumped from the villa.
The 24-year-old business development executive became the first person to leave the villa, after Whitney opted to save Mehdi instead.

Speaking in the Beach Hut afterwards, Whitney explained: ‘It is hard but we all knew that somebody had to go.’
George confessed to feeling disappointed about his early exit from the show. He said: ‘It’s not how I wanted my experience to end. I just wanted to continue dropping loose game.
‘I’m sure there will be somebody out there for me but obviously it wasn’t in the villa.’
Despite this, George confessed to loving his time in the Love Island villa.
He shared: I’ve had an absolute blast, dropping loose game and making everyone laugh.
‘The experiences I’ve had, the people I’ve met and the lifelong friendships that I’ve formed have made my villa experience very worthwhile.
‘I wish everyone in there the best villa experience and I can’t wait to see them all on the outside.’
Meanwhile, Love Island viewers were infuriated during Friday’s episode of the show as they decided Molly Marsh was getting too much screen time.
End of the road: George Fensom was the first person of Love Island summer series to be dumped from the villa during Friday’s episode
Final two: The business development executive, 24, and fellow contestant Mehdi Edno, 26, were the last two men standing
The Islander, 24, was seen in tears after her series partner Mitchel Taylor, 26, cooled things off with the actress.
Bombshell Sammy Root, 22, came clean to Mitchel, saying he’d like to get to know the beauty, having taken her on a date the previous day at the hideaway.
And, after Molly kept her options open, Mitchel decided to take a step back, leaving her seeking comfort from her fellow Islanders after bursting into tears.
However, the saga was not impressing fans, with many taking to Twitter to say they wanted to see more of the other villa residents.
Someone wrote: ‘I’m seeing everyone pop up randomly like oh yeah I forgot they’re in the house. Can they show us someone else other than Molly.’
While someone else posted: ‘Ok like enough of the Molly show, whats going on with Ruchee and Andre cause.’
Another viewer posted: ‘Nah surely sum is going on between Andre and Ruchee give them more SCREEN TIME this is not the Molly show omds.’
‘Can we move on from the Molly show now,’ asked another show fan, while someone else wrote: ‘Nah I’m giving #LoveIsland one more week before I reclaim my 9pm back. Im not tuning in for the Molly show.’
The Molly Show? Love Island viewers were infuriated during Friday’s episode of the show as they decided Molly Marsh was getting too much screen time

One other person remarked: ‘Is this a Molly Show??? I am fed up with this storyline of forcing Molly inside my throat and eyes!’
While another person commented: ‘This Molly situation isn’t deep enough for it to have taken up 20mins of the show.’
Someone else tweeted: ‘It’s been almost 30min and all i have seen on my screen is molly. Bro show me Catherine or Ruchee.’
Telling Mitchel he would like to get to know his partner Molly, newcomer Sammy said: ‘I can’t lie, Molly was my favourite. I want to get to know her. At the end of the day, she said to me she was open to getting to know other people as well.’
Taking the hit on the chin, Mitchel conceded to his now-love rival: ‘Do your thing, get to know the girls. Let the best man win.’
While Sammy looked set to seek love with the stunner, it transpired later in the episode that they may have met previously, when she says during a chat: ‘You either remind me of someone or I’ve met you and I don’t know how.’
Having seen her kiss Jeremiah and debate getting close to Sammy, Mitchel decided to pull Molly for a chat saying: ‘I don’t want to give you the energy I think you deserve, when you’re not going to give me any reciprocation back…
‘I’d rather let you do your thing. No one compares to you right now. I’m still gonna adore you, I still think you’re great…
Enough: The saga was not impressing fans, with many taking to Twitter to say they wanted to see more of the other villa residents
‘I don’t wanna cuddle and all that stuff anymore, I wanna sit back and I want you to explore your options.’
Later that evening, Molly sat down with Sammy to reveal her possible familiarity, saying: ‘You either remind me of someone or I’ve met you and I don’t know how.’
Sammy responded: ‘You’ve definitely been thinking about this all night! I hope it’s a good thing”, to which she said: ‘It is a good thing because I feel like I know you’. He teased: ‘Maybe we met in a past life, when you were a seagull and I was a chip!’
Love Island: Unseen Bits is set to air on Saturday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
