Love Island fans have accused Olivia Hawins of wanting to be a cougar as she sets her eyes on Haris Namani.
The Ring girl, 27, was seen flirting with Haris, 21 – who is paired with Anna-May shortly after Tom recoupled with her, with the beauty admitting she’s more ‘physically attracted’ to the TV salesman.
But as she struggled to decide between him and Tom, fans called her out for questioning Haris’ maturity.
Accusations: Love Island fans have accused Olivia Hawins of wanting to be a cougar as she sets her eyes on Haris Namani
After recoupling with Tom, Olivia wasted no time in sitting down with Haris to have a chat about where their heads were at.
Despite being with Anna-May, Haris told her: ‘Out of every girl in here, you are the one that I’m most sexually attracted to, you’re a very good looking girl.’
While Olivia, when asked how she felt about Tom, suggested the feeling was mutual, telling him: ‘Looks wise I feel like he’s [Tom] growing on me but you’re more my type, I’m more physically attracted to you…

‘And then personality, the thing that gets me so stuck is the fact that you’re both so different and I just need to decide what I want from a guy…’
The beauty then went on to compare the two lads, telling Haris of Tom: ‘I just feel like he might be a bit more mature than you.’
As Haris questioned what she meant, she quickly added: ‘That’s not a bad thing! You’re not immature, you’re just a bit more playful, maybe you need someone that can keep you in check and on your toes a bit.
‘Because I feel like you’re a bit of a yappy dog on a leash! I need to just reign you in a little bit.’
Moving on so soon? After recoupling with Tom, Olivia wasted no time in sitting down with Haris to have a chat about where their heads were at
Doubts? Despite being seemingly pleased that Tom ‘stole’ her from Will, Olivia still turned on the charm with Haris
Defending himself, Haris said: ‘You could say that to be fair, but the mature side of it, there’s got to be situations when that happens.’
Olivia then asked him if he was ‘scared’ to let his mature side out, with Haris saying: ‘No’, to which she then asked: ‘So then you’re open to being serious?’
Their conversation concluded with Olivia admitting she was in a ‘pickle’ as she didn’t know who she would choose if a recoupling came up soon.
Taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on Olivia flirting with Haris, one person commented: ‘I’m not feeling this cougar and sugar baby storyline.’

With another adding; ‘Olivia does not like Tom. She wants to be a cougar so badly!’

‘Super patronising to tell someone you think they’re not “mature” just bc you’re older than them, especially when you’ve only just met them’ tweeted another viewer.
With another adding; ‘“He might be a little more mature than me” says the 27 year old about the 23 year old, to the 21 year old.’
Elsewhere, it’s only day three of the new Love Island series – and viewers are already labelling it as ‘boring’.

But viewers were still not impressed, saying the new winter season seems ‘forced and scripted’.
Taking to Twitter as events unfolded, one viewer wrote: ‘Look Love Island is usually boring during the first week but even the chat is DEAD. The producers must be struggling for content’.
Another chimed in: ‘All these couples have become far too attached to each other far too quickly and it’s boring’
