Love Island’s Paige left unimpressed as Jacques and Gemma’s hearts race for each other in challenge

Paige Thorne was left visibly unimpressed after her partner Jacques O'Neill had his heart rate raised the most by his ex-girlfriend Gemma Owen during a raunchy challenge.

The Islanders all took part in a sexy challenge to try and raise each others’ heart rates the most, with each contestant dressing up in a costume and performing for the others.

The challenge caused a lot of tension in the Love Island villa, with many couples not raising each other's heart rates.

As Paige read out the boys' results, she could be seen looking downcast as it was revealed that Jacques' heart rate was raised the most by Gemma, 19, who he previously dated before entering the villa.

It was then also announced that Gemma's heart rate had been raised the most by Jacques instead of her current love interest Luca.

Once the results had been read out, Paige headed over to chat to the girls and admitted she wasn't happy about Jacques' result due to his and Gemma's past.

Ekin-Su asked Tasha, Paige, Indiyah, Antigoni, Gemma and Danica: "Did anyone take anything like, a little bit personal?"

Paige quickly responded: “I’m not going to lie I kind of did a little bit. Only because you guys have history it’s just like I can’t compete with that," as she looked over at Gemma.

Tasha, 23, and Indiyah, 23, then appeared to agree with Paige, as both of their partners, Andrew, 27, and Dami, 26, had their heart rates increased by other girls.

Later on, Gemma cleared the air with her partner Luca, 23, and then Paige headed for a chat with Jacques on the daybed.

The rugby player, 23, told her he'd had a good night "until the girls started sulking" about the challenge, and proceeded to ask Paige what she was annoyed about.

She admitted: “It’s not great is it, it genuinely could have been any other girl," and Jacques then told how he'd only kissed Gemma on the cheek during the challenge.

He tried to explain why maybe both his and Gemma's heart rates had risen for each other, and said: "Maybe because we've experienced something like that before and it brought like, a flashback. Obviously it would do, if you'd slept with someone you'd get them thoughts."

Paige was left less than impressed by Jacques' comments, and she then started to wonder whether he still has "chemistry" with his ex-girlfriend, and if there's "still something there".

Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2.
