LOVE Island fans are convinced they have Jacques O’Neill’s game plan sussed as he was blasted for a “well honed routine.”
At the time, sitting on the villa steps with Paige, Jacques, 23, said: “I didn’t want to tell you that I cared.”

Yet after now telling Cheyanne and Mollie he’s “never felt like this with anyone before” – fans are starting to smell a rat.
One took to Twitter to muse: “Personally, I think the whole Jaques opening up at night to Paige and showing his emotional side is a routine he has done many times before in order to make girls think they’re the ones to ‘change him’ when really he is and will always be a slimy little rat #LoveIsland.”
Another posted: “100% agree. It’s a well honed routine.”
A third continued: “Feel like there is something in the fact he done it at night too.

“As we’re going to sleep our brains are more passive/starting to relax so Paige probably wouldn’t have questioned it much.”
One then simply put: “He’s a manipulative dog.”
Recently Paige, who has stayed loyal to her man, told how she “can’t see any red flags” with Jacques.
It came after Jacques had told his lad mates he was going to “crack on” with Cheyanne behind Paige’s back, and the pair have since been packing on the PDA.
