Love Island: Connor baffles fans by claiming he is NOT ‘sensitive’ despite storming off after Sophie joked about fancying the new Lukes

Love Island’s Connor Durman sparked even more bewilderment among fans on Friday, as he denied being ‘sensitive’ after yet another clash with Sophie Piper.

The hunk, 25, fiercely denied his insecurities during a chat with his love interest, 21, after previously storming off when she joked about fancying newcomers Luke Mabbott and Luke Trotman.

It comes after Connor insisted he was getting ‘f*****g angry’ as he watched Sophie joke about having an eye on the two male Islanders, even after both Shaughna Phillips and Callum Jones insisted she was joking.

Not really! Love Island’s Connor Durman sparked even more bewilderment among fans on Friday, as he denied being ‘sensitive’ after yet another clash with Sophie Piper

As the new Lukes headed off on dates at the start of the show, Sophie decided to wind up her man by hinting she had her eye on one of them. 

Connor struggled to hide his frustration and stormed off, even after Shaughna insisted she was only pulling his leg,

It led to a tense exchange between them as Connor insisted: ‘It annoyed me because it felt like you were rubbing it in my face, it did f**k me off. You listen to so many things I was like I felt uncomfortable there.

‘If you think I’ve overreacted or whatever you don’t like it, I just felt uncomfortable in that situation. Ever I think other think you p****d them off as well.’

Unhappy: The previous evening Sophie joked that she might have eyes for one of the newcomers Luke Mabbott and Luke Trotman, leaving Connor annoyed

Bizarre: He claimed that Sophie made him angry with her playful comments, despite his fellow Islanders claiming they were all in good humour

Clearly bewildered Sophie later added in the Beach Hut: ‘I feel like he shouldn’t have even got annoyed, I don’t want to be too cold where I’m not thinking about his feelings, I’m trying to be sympathetic, but I’d literally laugh if he said that to me.’

The couple’s drama then spilled into the following day as Sophie was chosen to go on a date with Luke M, and Connor decided they needed to sit down for another chat.

Sophie told him: ‘I know before you say you’re chilled out, I feel your actions have proven different, I would rather you just be honest with me, and say you’re sensitive and you need a bit of reassurance.’

Sweet: The couple’s drama then spilled into the following day as Sophie was chosen to go on a date with Luke M

Addressing it: Sitting down with Connor for a chat after their date, Sophie told him she thought he was behaving sensitively

Baffled that she thought of him as sensitive, Connor then replied: ‘I didn’t want to sit there and listen to that s**t last night. I don’t think I’m sensitive. 

‘In here for once I’ve opened up more than I had in the outside world, I wanted to be honest and open about things, that’s what I’ve done, maybe I’ve been too honest with things. You do whatever you feel I don’t wanna be pushing you.’

Clearly rattled Sophie then said: ‘I don’t want you to get stressed. This is the first time I’ve had a serious chat with you,’ while Connor said it was ‘boring.’ 

‘He’s getting so worked up and pretending to act cool, you’re trying to both and what’s happening here? It’s a bit draining,’ Sophie added in the Beach Hut.

No! But Connor quickly hit back by saying: ‘I didn’t want to sit there and listen to that s**t last night. I don’t think I’m sensitive’

But it was clear that Connor had a conflicting view, as he insisted: ‘She thinks I’m sensitive what the f**k? I don’t think I am am I?’

While the question was clearly meant as rhetorical, viewers couldn’t hide their bewilderment as they rushed to Twitter to question his own claim that he wasn’t ‘sensitive.’

One wrote: ‘Connor is not sensitive he’s possessive. Sophie shouldn’t have to reassure him. Classic red light signals from an early relationship.’

Another added: ‘Nah Connor says he’s not sensitive,’ with one fan also tweeting: ‘Connor making out he’s not sensitive as if he doesn’t have a hissy fit every time Sophie looks at another boy,’ a third fan also tweeted.

He said what? Viewers couldn’t hide their bewilderment as they rushed to Twitter to question his own claim that he wasn’t ‘sensitive

Despite their clash, by the episode’s end things seemed to be far better between Connor and Sophie, as she chose to stay with him during the re-coupling.

They’ll now face a public vote  along with the other couples, apart from Luke M and Jess Gale, and Luke Trotman and Rebecca Gormley who were immune.

The couples risk the fewest votes will be at risk of being dumped from the show, and the results will be revealed in Sunday’s show.

Love Island continues on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2.
