Love Island SPOILER: ‘Santa’s delivered, trust me!’ Jacques is instantly entranced by EVERY Casa Amor bombshell – after insisting he’ll ‘never meet another girl like Paige!’
The rugby player, 23, has been separated from Paige Thorne as she and the rest of the girls have moved to Casa Amor where they were joined by six new guys.
Jacques couldn’t contain his excitement at meeting the new ladies, which came just hours after he insisted he would never find someone ‘better’ than Paige, 24.
Excited: Jacques O’Neill says Santa has delivered him ‘every single present I wanted’ as six new girls enter the villa on Sunday’s episode of Love Island
While the girls are getting to know the new boys at Casa Amor that evening, all becomes clear for the main Villa.
The boys receive a text which reads: ‘Boys, as you know the girls went out for drinks earlier this evening. They will be staying away for a few days. Please now pack them a case for their trip. #DontWaitUp #CasaAmor’.
Later all crowded into the Beach Hut, Luca says: ‘The girls are out! They’re having a nice time, we’re not worrying about them. Have your nice time and we’ll have our nice time.’
Davide then predicts there will be ‘six sexy girls to have fun with us and enjoy our time’.

Over at Casa Amor, Billy makes a bet that Paige can’t guess his birthday month, and if she does he’ll make her breakfast.
Paige guesses: ‘I’m gonna go with maybe…. I really wanna say May’ and Billy can’t believe she gets it right.
Waking up the next morning Billy is regretting his bet, saying to the boys: ‘I’ve got to cook her eggs, what have we done?’
He continues: ‘Listen, we had a bet. She’s expecting eggs and soldiers, there ain’t no eggs.’
While the girls are away: The boys waste no time getting to know the new additions to the villa
While setting to work making toast with syrup on top in the shape of a heart he tells the boys: ‘We’ve got to make them fall in love, boys, remember that. And we ain’t got long!’
Elsewhere in Casa Amor, Gemma and Jack are cooling off at the side of the pool and the topic of conversation turns to families.
Jack says: ‘My mum and my little sister are big into show jumping and everything like that. I know you’re big into it as well.’
Gemma says: ‘Oh ok, oh wow!’ She then asks: ‘So your mum is a showjumper? So what does your dad do?’

Jack replies: ‘He’s a singer.’
Gemma asks: ‘A well-known singer?’
Jack answers: ‘Yeah he is, you know Ronan Keating? That’s the old man.’
Noting how important her family is to her, Gemma asks: ‘So you’re really family orientated?’
Jack agrees, saying: ‘I’m very family orientated. It would be something I’d definitely look for in a girl. I’ve got a big crazy family back home.’
