Love Island star Jacques breaks down in first look as he leaves villa

Adam’s arrival immediately caused waves, especially for Jacques, as he set his sights on Paige.
In a preview clip from tonight’s show, Jacques finds out that Adam has been less than complimentary about him behind his back.
“He was proper slagging you off,” Jacques is told. It’s safe to say that being branded “immature” by Adam doesn’t go down well with him.
Jacques leaves the villa
Later in the clip, Jacques takes Paige aside for a chat.
“Who the [bleep] is he [Adam]?” a visibly fuming Jacques asks. “Just another geezer what has been on the show?!”
“He’s [bleeping] nothing mate, you know what I mean?” he continues.
“Alright, and then keep that in mind,” Paige tells him. “Why do I need to keep that in mind?!” Jacques snaps.
“Because you don’t need to rise to it and be like bitey with it, do you know what I mean?” Paige says.
“Like what does it actually change? Nothing,” she continues.
“You know what I’m going to be like! If a boy’s going to chat [bleep] behind my back, I don’t [bleeping] have it,” Jacques says.
Jacques’ emotional goodbye
The next day, an emotional Jacques sits with Paige on the balcony as he lets her know he’s leaving the villa.
“You mean so much to me, you know that?” he says to her.
“I just wish I could finish my journey off with you here, but…,” he says, before breaking down.
