Love Island’s Ellie Spence and Tom Clare enjoyed a very cheeky chat during Monday evening’s episode as they threw a slew of sexual innuendos back and forth, following a secret kiss the evening before.
But the chat left many viewers cringing as they branded bombshell Ellie ‘desperate’, and wondered if she had forgotten that her family was watching.
While some were convinced that she was much more interested in Tom than he was in her, begging the islanders to tone things down.
‘Has she forgot her family are watching’?: Love Island fans have been left cringing at Ellie and Tom after they had a cheeky chat about bedroom antics during Monday’s episodee
During the chat, Ellie told Tom that she wanted to share a bed with him, saying: ‘I was actually thinking last night, I would love to share a bed with you, have a little cuddle.
‘We would have to sleep downstairs though, because we would be too loud in a shared room. It would get heated.’
Many fans were unimpressed with the exchange as they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
‘Ellie and Tom are so cringe, pls stop x,’ wrote one viewer.

While another added: ‘The way Ellie is THROWING herself at Tom just screams desperate’.
As a third added: ‘Did no one tell Tom & Ellie they’re on Love Island & not Too Hot To Handle?’
‘Ellie is doing too much… that chat was so cringe. Even Tom looked uncomfortable,’ added another.
And it seems that despite the flirty chat, Tom’s sights aren’t quite set on Ellie – as he told Olivia after the chat: ‘We flirt but, I think that’s as far as it goes [with Ellie]. The girls I want to get to know the most is you and Samie’.
Tom and Ellie locked lips in Sunday’s episode on the terrace after he broke things off with Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown.
Their private moment doesn’t stay private for long however, as Will soon takes Jessie, Tanya and Shaq up on the terrace to get something off his chest.
Will reveals: ‘I have had a lot on my mind today. I got told a little bit of information and I don’t know what to do with it.’
Tanya asks: ‘What was that?’
Will says: ‘So basically, Ellie pulled me today and said yesterday that she kissed Tom out on the terrace.’
Suggestive: Tom replies: ‘Things would get heated’ and Ellie hints: ‘I’m excited to have a little terrace trip tonight…’
Tanya and Jessie gasp in shock as Will says: ‘Don’t make it a big deal.’
Shaq says: ‘Wait, hold on, hold on. What?’
Jessie says: ‘We better duck for cover…’

However, the new romance between Tom and Ellie might not last long, as it seems he already has his sights set on new bombshell Samie Elishi.
Pulling Tom first, Samie says: ‘Initial attraction, I’m probably most attracted to you looks wise but I also like that you’re quite cheeky.’
Tom smiles as he asks: ‘Am I up there for you?’
Secrets: Will reveals: ‘I have had a lot on my mind today. I got told a little bit of information and I don’t know what to do with it’
Samie laughs and replies: ‘You are, you’re up there but other people are up there too, I don’t give everything away…’
Tom tells her: ‘I can’t lie, I do fancy you.’
It comes after Zara burst into floods of tears and said Tom was giving her ‘mad ick’ after he said he preferred Olivia Hawkins’ face.
Earlier this week, viewers watched as the footballer said Zara’s rival Olivia Hawkins, 27, had the ‘best face’ while she had the ‘best body’ during a game of truth and dare.

And during Sunday night’s episode, Zara, 25, was left furious as she broke down into tears and told Tom, 23, to ‘move from me’ as she became frustrated with his choices after the game, with the pair later agreeing to park their romance.
When asked by Lana Jenkins if she was ok, Zara said: ‘No, I just can’t be a***d. All the girls picked Tom. Liv picked Tom like twice. He picked Liv’s face. I’m not just some f*****g booty to you.’
She continued: ‘He’s giving me mad ick. If you don’t like me, move from me. I just don’t understand it.
‘One minute he’s saying he’s all for me then he wants to get to know other people? Why is he saying he likes her face?’
In the Beach Hut, she added: ‘At this point, it’s actually exhausting.’
Lana then told Tom what had been said, prompting him to say in the Beach Hut: ‘The initial attraction is there with me and Zara but, will it last?
‘I don’t want drama, I want someone to come home to and they’re lifting me up and boosting me, it’s probably been a bit of a wake up call for me tonight, i needed it.’
Drama: In a truth or dare game, Tom named the three Islanders that would make up his ideal partner, choosing Olivia for face and Zara for body (Olivia is seen on the show)
End of the road: Pulling Tom for a chat later on in a bid to clear the air, Zara and Tom mutually agreed it was best they remained just friends going forward
Pulling Tom for a chat later on in a bid to clear the air, Zara and Tom mutually agreed it was best they remained just friends going forward rather than trying to ‘force’ a romance.
Attempting to cover his tracks, Tom of his choices during the game: ‘I just thought whatever I would have picked, there would have been no good outcome.’
Zara told him: ‘I just thought there was no coming back from that.
Honest opinion: Speaking of the choices Tom made during the game of truth or dare, Zara told him: ‘I just thought there was no coming back from that’
‘There’s days when I want it to work and you’re confused, days when you want it to work and you’re confused.
‘I think there has been a lot of drama and headaches and confusion, and for this to happen this early on, it’s too much.’
Telling her he agreed it would be best to be friends, Tom said: ‘I think you’re a top girl and you have good intentions. I’ll always be here for you.’

It came after Olivia was asked who she is most attracted to during the game and kissed Tom and Spencer, further fuelling her rift with Zara.
Tom also risked putting his romance with Zara on the rocks during the episode when he admitted he would like to get to know Ellie despite being coupled-up with her.
Semi-professional footballer Tom pulled law firm Business Development Executive Ellie, 23, for a chat after she entered the villa as a bombshell this week.
As they chatted privately, Tom assured Ellie that he wanted to get to know her, insisting that he is not ‘exclusive’ with Zara.
‘I ain’t exclusive, do you know what I mean,’ he said when Ellie asked him how to felt about his current partner Zara and Ellie’s fellow newcomer Spencer Wilks, 24, talking.
When Tom said he wasn’t ‘bothered’ by it, Ellie replied: ‘That’s a bit of a red flag.’

But Tom hit back: ‘She’s not my girl, how much do you fancy me?’
A flirty Ellie then referenced Zara’s row with Olivia, saying: ‘You’ve really surprised me, you’re so funny and we just get each other’s banter. I thought after the drama you’d be like no.’
But Tom insisted that he is interested in getting to know her and told Ellie to be ‘honest’ about it if Zara asked her.
‘Zara makes out like you are solid,’ Ellie said.

To which Tom said: ‘I’m only in here once and you’re fit. I want to get to know you 100 per cent.’
Zara was then seen catching to Tanyel Revan, 26, fuming that she didn’t want any ‘mixed signals’ from him.
‘I don’t need mixed signals, I don’t need any doubt. I don’t think I should be allowing it in here,’ she said.
Love Island continues on Monday on ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm.
