Gabby Allen’s feelings for Marcel’s have been questioned by ITV2 viewers [ITV]
The bubbly blonde was slammed by ITV2 viewers – including Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby – for coupling up with Marcel because he’s “the popular one”.
Billy Mackie said Gabby was “one of the best relationship he’s ever had” and is adamant she’s been genuine throughout her time in Love Island.
However, he also added that he hadn’t been watching the show as he feels watching his ex develop a relationship with a new man would be “weird”.

Billy said to The Sun: “I haven’t been watching it this year. I’m not going to spend my time watching my ex-girlfriend on TV. It would be a bit weird if I sat around watching her all day.
“But she’s a very genuine girl. She’s been herself in the house. A couple of people have said she’s fake, but I am certain she’s been truthful. I hope she wins. Gabby deserves it.”
Continuing to sing his ex’s praises, Billy said he was attracted to Gabby as soon as they met.

He added: “I fancied her as soon as I saw her. She was very flirty and a really good-looking girl.
“We got on as soon as we met. She’s got good chat and she’s sexy overall. It was one of the best relationships I’ve ever had. It was so easy and so much fun.”
Meanwhile, Gabby’s time in the house has taken a hostile turn – Marcel’s partner got emotional after her fellow housemates, including Montana Brown, questioned her feelings for the Blazin’ Squad star.

And in Wednesday night’s episode, viewers saw Gabby snub Montana when she tried to hug her.
As the remaining Islanders hugged Sam Gowland and Georgia Harrison when they were dumped from the island, Gabby was seen expressing her shock over their exit.
But as Montana went over to and opened out her arms for an embrace, Marcel’s girlfriend simply walked past her.
