LOVE Island fans have been left convinced that Jacques O’Neill is playing a “Spiel” with Paige Thorne after their heart to heart.
Viewers flooded social media to speculate that he was “playing a game” during the conversation as he got caught up in competing with Jay Younger.
Sitting on the stairs in the Majorcan villa, the Rugby player revealed that he was “afraid” to talk about how he felt to the paramedic.
Jacques admitted he felt “f**king angry” watching Paige in bed with Jay, 28, after they coupled up on Friday night.
“I so genuinely believe every word you tell me but I’ve just never felt like this in my life,” he told her. “But I can’t show emotion.”

“What do you think the worst is going to happen by showing emotion and showing that you care?” Paige then asked him.
“Like if anything Jacques that would only make us better.”
Jacques could be heard whispering “Danke” to Paige as the pair cuddled up together on the stairs before heading to bed.
But fans at home were not convinced by Jacques’ sweet admission, and hit back that they felt he was playing a “Spiel”.
