There’s mystery surrounding the Love Island reunion, as Paige Thorne refused to talk about former love interest Jacques O’Neill.
A source has since told The Sun that Jacques was “pretty much completely forgotten about” at the reunion, which is set to air on Sunday.
They said: “It was mentioned once that he couldn’t make it and then he was never spoken of again.
“Paige wasn’t even asked any questions about him and she didn’t say anything about him – despite it being a huge part of her journey.
“Everyone thought it was a bit odd and were surprised he got so little mention after everything.”
After getting dumped from the villa, Paige addressed Jacques’ exit, saying: “Honestly, I had a feeling that he was going to leave. It was really hard hearing him say it out loud, but I knew there was nothing I could say to make him want to change his mind.
“I knew that wouldn’t be right. I fully supported his decision, absolutely I could never have sat there and asked him to stay.”
She added: “It did cross my mind a little bit to leave with him, but things hadn’t been 100% all the way through, and the fact that they weren’t was what made me think.

“The fact that I stayed and I gave 100% to the experience and found something new and something more suited towards me just goes to show that everything happens for a reason.”
Jacques wasn’t the only Love Island star not to attend, with bombshell Afia Tonkmor also noticeably absent.
