Love Islands Remi says Jacques ruined his experience in unseen villa conflict

Love Island contestant Remi Lambert has claimed Jacques O'Neill "ruined" his experience on the hit ITV dating show due to "arguments" that were never aired.

Appearing on the Youtube and podcast show, Reality with Will Njobvu alongside previous bombshell Afia Tonkmor, Remi described unaired scenes where Jacques would allegedly taunt him.

Speaking openly about his experience, Remi, 22, said: "There was a lot of stuff that wasn’t aired, lots of stuff that went on," before asking whether it was ok to expand on the situation.

"Basically, me and Jacques got into quite a lot of arguments, it made my experience s**t, it ruined it for me.

"People were saying it was because he has a rugby persona, but you can’t treat anyone like that.

The professional dancer continued: "He was just trying to get on to me, being like 'My name’s Remi, I’m hard, I’m from Manny [Manchester]'.

"It was constant, it was so jarring, but I was the only one to stick up for myself, he would always do that to people.

"I’d tell him to shut up. We just got into a lot of fights."

Earlier in the week, Remi alluded to conflict with Jacques in a Q&A session with fans on his Instagram.

When asked who was the islander he got on with the least, Remi replied: "Jacques the muppet kmt [kiss my teeth]."

Not getting into what may have happened at the time, the rapper told his followers that it was "a story for another day".

Elsewhere in the interview, Remi spoke candidly about being asked by presenter Laura Whitmore to rap while on the spinoff show Love Island: Aftersun.

But when Remi did give it a go, he seemed to fumble slightly over his words which fans quickly spotted on social media.

Explaining the moment and what happened, Remi said he was "nervous" at the time.

He said: "I was nervous, on Aftersun, I had an earpiece and I could hear the reverb of my voice and it swayed me off.

"We all make mistakes, no one’s perfect. Everyone expects me to be like a robot," he told host Will.

The star also spoke about the negative responses he received from some social media users regarding resurfaced clips of him performing.

He added: "It was peak, I’ve been sent death threats.

"People were saying, 'You’re never going to make it, you can’t dance'.

"With the dancing, I was just doing that for fun… I was just trying to have a good time with my boys. Let’s just keep it moving."
