LOVE Island Australia viewers have been left gobsmacked as Charlie Taylor is the first contestant to dumped in a brutal recoupling.
And the rugby player didn’t take the news too well either.
Charlie’s quest for love on the island the ITV2 show was cut short when it came down to the final two and Millie was forced to decide between her current partner Justin or whether to take a chance on Charlie.
But as Millie stuck with Justin, Charlie had to head for the door.
Charlie’s eviction came after his failed attempt to get close to Kim in the run up to recoupling.
Some of the girls had commented on Charlie’s lack of maturity, which may have been why Kim decided to go with John James.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Am I missing something? Why did Kim pick John James? #LoveIslandAUS”.
Another added: “Charlie should not have gone home, John James should have gone home. #LoveIslandAUS” and “Is it me or was Kim literally smirking after she picked John James and Charlie had to leave???”
Reacting to the news the hunk told cameras: “If I was in a bar I wouldn’t even approach these girls.
“I just don’t wanna leave this place but unfortunately I was stuck with the wrong girls.”
Some simply could not contain their shock and wrote: “WHY DID KIM PICK JOHN JAMES WTF #LoveIslandAUS”.
“BLOODY hell that recoupling was a mess,” added another.
Charlie later explained his own shock and said: “I was hoping Kim would pick me, to be honest. I was putting all my energy into Kim and we did discuss it a fair bit.
“I was pretty convinced that she was going to pick me.
“I don’t know how things changed or why she picked [John James] instead. It was 100 per cent a blind side. I didn’t see it coming whatsoever.”
Earlier on in the episode viewers watched as Erin started to question Eden’s intentions after spending the night alone in the Hideaway.
Erin was annoyed after seeing Eden having fun in the pool with Millie, Tayla and Josh.
Speaking in the Beach Hut, Erin said: “I’m really worried to trust someone. And I am fully trusting Eden, so I’m really scared that he’s going to break the trust.”
There was also the return of the Tayla, Grant and Cassidy love triangle as Tayla admitted she still had feelings for Grant – much to Cassidy’s annoyance.
Love Island Australia is being rerun on ITV2 after the British version was cancelled amid the coronavirus crisis.
