‘Still don’t understand the point of kady going to courtney in towie ????? #towie’; ‘Kady is obsessed with Courtney, second ex of hers she dated now #towie
‘why the f**k would kady need to go over and introduce herself!? The cherry on the cake was when she asked courtney if she still loved him, thats so f***ing rude!! #towie’
‘Anyone else think Kady is just desperate to be on the tele? Didn’t like her in love island, don’t like her now, bye #teamcourtney #TOWIE’.
Hard to hear: Courtney was struggling to keep her emotions in as she came face-to-face with her love rival for the first time on Sunday’s episode
Mixed reaction: Some fans were upset with Kady for approaching Courtney, whilst others sympathised with the former Love Island star for being stuck in a tough situation
However, some fans leapt to Kady’s defence for handling the awkward situation head-on, posting: ‘haven’t watched tonight’s #TOWIE yet but why are people hating on Kady? She’s done nothing wrong! People are so quick to jump on the girl. How about c*** Myles off instead of Kady.
‘Already people are jumping on @kadymcdermottx and calling her names. She was only going up to Courtney to say hello, so it wouldn’t be awkward since Kady is now in Towie she being the bigger person. #TOWIE’
‘Kady just went over to say hi. I think Courtney overreacted by crying & walking off. I know it’s hard but Kady didn’t even say more than 2 words. They have to be in the same place, so it was decent of her to try and break the tension. #TOWIE
‘Really felt for Courtney then but fair play to Kady, she seemed really genuine #TOWIE’.

Upsetting: Courtney attempted to hold back tears as she responded: ‘It’s me that was in love with a boy that you’re now with so for me I feel more awkward than you’
Kady shot to fame on Love Island’s second series in 2016 where her romance with Scott Thomas kept fans captivated due to their tumultuous rows.
Since the show wrapped up, her work moved from TV to social media and later cosmetics as she launched her ‘By Kady’ make-up range, before now starring on TOWIE as Myles’ new girlfriend.
Last month, Kady returned to headlines when it was first reported that she was dating Myles, who had become something of a villain on the show due to his outrageous temper and various infidelities towards girlfriend Courtney.
It was unknown if she would join the show, although she was referenced on the series when Myles’ enemy Chris Clark hit out at him saying he was only dating Kady because she boasts ‘over a million Twitter followers’.

Approaching Courtney in their first meeting, Kady walked up to the brunette beauty, who was flanked by Chloe Meadows and Georgia Kousolou, as she reasoned: ‘I know it’s a really awkward situation with everyone’.
Courtney attempted to hold back tears as she responded: ‘It’s me that was in love with a boy that you’re now with so for me I feel more awkward than you but it is what it is.
‘The boy can move on. I’ve got no say in it, and if you make him happy then I’m happy for you both. But for me, it is bl**dy hard.’
Courtney then burst into tears and walked away, leaving Kady looking sheepish.
