Before we begin, let us remind you that it's been two days since the new series of 'Love Island' began. Two. Days.
If you to become this emotionally attached to someone you just met after two days in 'real life', it would be strange. But if you were to do so on a reality show where the point is to meet different people and play a game, it's downright concerning.
If you saw 'Love Island' last night, you'll be aware that Joe didn't react well at all to Tommy choosing Lucie. After sulking for the evening (when Tommy and Lucie went on a date) and the next day, his behaviour towards Lucie raised quite a few eyebrows amongst viewers. Many suggested that by guilt-tripping her and telling her that he "felt like he couldn't trust" her, he was being manipulative and controlling.
Two days, folks.

Is it me or is Joe legit showing signs of being an emotional manipulator and controlling. It's only been 2 days... You don't even know her? Too intense. 🚩 #loveisland
