In an exclusive interview with Closer Online, Samira Mighty and Frankie Foster have opened up about Dr Alex and Alexandra's relationship

He's been in the villa for sevens weeks and it's safe to say that Dr Alex George has struggled like hell trying to find his dream girl.

He was the first boy in the villa but none of the girls picked him and then after he paired up with Laura Anderson, she chose Wes Nelson. He was then partnered up with Samira Mighty however they decided to remain in their couple as friends until they found The One.

Megan Hanson Barton then mugged him off by kissing Eyal Booker, Ellie Brown chose Charlie Brake over him but then his luck changed when bombshell Alexandra Cane walked into the villa and picked him over newbies Idris Virgo and Kieran Nicholls.

Before going on the show and dating Kendall, Rosie, (almost) Megan, Zara and Darylle, Adam was just a 22-year-old personal trainer and gym director from Newcastle.

Since then, he's done a complete U-turn and told Alexandra that he doesn't want to move at "a pace that's too quick".

He even went on to say: "Someone coming in like Laura [Crane] who probably is quite my type has made me realise I don't want to rush into a decision."

It appeared that the pair managed to get their relationship back on track after he decided to re-couple with her but in tonight's episode it looks like it's over AGAIN. During a conversation with his best pal Jack Fincham, he admits: "I don't have the feelings that I should, at this point I'm almost being unnatural."

Oh boy...

Now Samira, who walked out of the villa after her now-boyfriend Frankie Foster was axed from the show, has revealed why her friend has been struggling in the villa - because he's too picky.

In an exclusive interview with Closer Online she admitted she didn't think Dr Alex and Alexandra would last on the outside: "Only because they're so different.

"I was only with Alexandra for a day and she seemed bloody nice but Alex is so particular and so specific and when he gets something he's like 'yay' but then all of a sudden he's like 'Oh God I don't know if I want that'."

She even went on to admit that she would have confronted him if she was still in the villa, before adding: "When he comes out I'll have words, he listens to me."

Samira and Frankie also admitted that Georgia Steel and Sam Bird's relationship surprised them the most, especially after Georgia went on those two dates with Jack Fowler and Sam and admitted she got on better with Jack.

However, Samira did add: "Georgia calmed down so much being with Sam. He really kind of brought her back down to Earth and was like come on G let's do this, she was really quiet and calm which was nice to see."

And speaking of that date, where Georgia and Jack kissed but have been at odds on what really happened, Frankie said he's "always backed" Jack's version on the story.

Frankie went on to say that Georgia, "doesn't need to say [she's loyal] all the time.

"It doesn't need to be spoken about, if you like someone obviously you're going to be loyal to them and then her banging on about it with Sam or with Laura, it's irrelevant really."

He even added that the explosive row between Georgia and Ellie wasn't because the kiss, "it was over the fact that G didn't say anything."


Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
