As the dancer read out her speech, Jacques impersonated Davide Sanclimenti by shouting at the TV: “You are a liar, an actress, go the f**k out.”
The video, which was posted on Twitter, has amassed more than one million views as fans are slamming Jacques’ behaviour.
In response to the video, Tasha’s dad tweeted: “Some people grow and mature from their island experience, some don’t. It is what it is.”

Showing their support for Tasha, one fan replied: “I’m so disgusted at the way that Tasha has been treated. Please give her a big hug from us.”
A second said: “I really really hope Tasha is okay. She needs to know that his behaviour is not okay and whatever opinion Jacques may have is not shared by many of us. Wish I could give her a big hug rn.”
A third weighed in: “I hope she is okay she doesn’t deserve this at all. She a role model and is one to my little sister who has loved her from the start. I hope Tasha and Andrew can both just be left alone and enjoy their life together. Can see how in love they are.”
