Viewers had been desperate for Alex to find love after a string of failed attempts, and after Alexandra sent two boys packing to couple up with him, they thought that was that.
But with the arrival of pro surfer Laura Crane, Alex has had his head turned and told Alexandra that he wasn't ready to be "exclusive."
Viewers weren't happy at all, writing on Twitter: "I'm so sick of Dr. Alex like… He's handed a beautiful girl who's in to him and ruins it… 🙄😒 Alexandra is an amazing girl #LoveIsland.
"Am I the only one thinking Alex was majorly punching with Alexandra?! He should be grateful…🤷🏼♀️ #LoveIsland.

Dani Dyer also slammed him over his decision.
During this evening’s episode, Dani asked Alex: “You fancy Laura, don’t you?”, to which the medic replied: “Yeah, she’s hot.”
Unable to hold back her disappointment, Dani told him: “I’m gutted Alex, I ain’t gonna lie. I don’t like this game anymore.”
Later in the Beach Hut, she added: “Alexandra has come in here, she’s worked hard with Alex, she was all over him, he was all over her, they were absolutely fine, a new girl’s come in with a surfboard and you want to jump on it and mug someone off.”
Speaking about Alexandra, Dani then told Alex: “She was really upset last night, be a bit more of a man and actually just see if she’s okay.”
But Alex wasn't sure he’d actually done anything wrong, responding: “Well, hang on Dani, I have been a man.
“I’ve told her I’m not ready to be exclusive, which is what I said to her, which I think is very fair after five days.”
Laura told the doc: “I’m in here to find something at the end of the day.”
In the Beach Hut, she admitted: “I really like Alex, he surprised me. He is a lot more confident than I thought he was going to be.
“He said some lovely things and he is a real gentleman.”
Speaking the next day about her dwindling relationship with Alex, Alexandra told old Laura: “I just had such a weird feeling all day yesterday so I spoke to him and I said ‘I like you’ and he said he just wanted to keep things open and wanted to get to know the new girls, in particular new Laura.
“For me, that says to me you’re not really that interested. I’m not going to force somebody to like me.
“At the same time, I just don’t want to be an option. As lovely as he is, I just thought, ‘I don’t need to be sat here feeling sorry for myself because someone isn’t interested.’”
She went on to have a chat with Alex and told him: “I guess today I have to be honest and say, I don’t want to be an option. I want someone to feel sure about something.”
Alex replied: “It’s not about being an option. It’s ‘am I ready to be exclusive with you’ and I’m not. And I really am surprised that you would be ready to be exclusive with me.”
