Love Island’s Chris Taylor has explained why Jordan Hames’ interest in India Reynolds didn’t come as a surprise.
On Tuesday night, viewers were gobsmacked when the 23-year-old model expressed his interest in the Page 3 girl – just two days after he asked Anna Vakili to be his girlfriend.
While many thought Jordan’s interest in India came out of nowhere, Chris has revealed that the pair were getting flirty while they weren’t being filmed.
Speaking to the MailOnline, Chris said: “There’s only a finite amount of time that you see on TV, you only seen an hour snippet from a 24 hour day. There were conversations between India and Jordan that you’ll never see.”
“A lot of flirting there, let’s call a spade a spade, obviously you see a little bit of it. But there’s a lot of downtime, there’s a lot of lunches, us eating dinner, we’re not allowed to talk about show, but we talk about whatever we want.”
“And in those moments is when a lot of potential relationships and flirting goes on. It didn’t come out of nowhere, I had a feeling about what Jordan was going to do, but yeah, he went for it, he went with his heart, I can’t blame him for that,” he explained.
“Jordan, despite the situation and despite the way he dealt with it, he went with his heart and I can’t blame the guy for it. He should have done it in a different way, I don’t agree with the way he went about it, I told him that to his face on various occasions.”
“There’s an order you should do things and he didn’t. He should have spoken to Anna, he should have spoken to Ovie and then spoke to India. But he didn’t and he knows that, he knows that was a mistake,” Chris said.
“He apologised for that to Anna. But yeah, the guy went with his heart, who am I to judge what is going on with his head?”
Since leaving the villa, Anna has branded Jordan’s behaviour as the “worst in Love Island history,” and confirmed she has no plans to reconcile with him.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
