Love Island fans applaud Jack Fowler’s parenting skills

Viewers also picked up on Dani’s unconscious Drake reference.

Fans of ITV2 reality show Love Island have voiced their disappointment that Jack Fowler has been dumped from the villa after he excelled in the parenting challenge.

During Wednesday’s episode the contestants were tasked with taking care of plastic baby dolls in their couples. Jack and his partner Laura Crane won the challenge as they were deemed the pair that best looked after their baby Aubrey.

However, it was not enough to save the couple as they were later eliminated from the show after finishing bottom of a public vote.

Wes Nelson and Megan Barton Hanson and Josh Denzel and Kazimir Crossley were both at risk after being in the bottom three but it was ultimately Jack and Laura who were left to pack their bags.

One viewer suggested on social media that had the vote been held after the parenting challenge Jack and Laura may have survived, based on Jack’s enthusiastic embrace of fatherhood.

They wrote: “If only the vote was tonight new Jack would of definitely got them votes in.”

Another wrote how attracted they were to Jack after his performance in the challenge. They tweeted: “If you didn’t fancy new Jack from Love Island before, you definitely do after this episode.”

Many of the show’s fans said they were angry that while Jack and Laura stayed, Jack’s former partner Laura Anderson and her current beau Paul Knops stayed.

One fan asked: “Who is voting for Laura and Paul?  They literally add nothing and take up time moaning (angry face emoji)”.

Another added: “As if people actually voted to save Laura and Paul. Freaks the lot of you. Liberty.”

Viewers also picked up an unknowing reference Dani Dyer made to Canadian rapper Drake’s number one single In My Feelings.

Dani and her partner Jack Fincham called their plastic baby Kimberley Flo Fincham, or ‘Kiki’ for short.

Drake’s song begins with the lyrics “Kiki do you love me?” The song was released after the contestants entered the villa.

One Twitter user wrote: “Waiting for Jack and Dani to start singing ‘Kiki do you love me’ after naming their baby but remembering they haven’t even heard the Drake song yet (crying emoji).”

Many Love Island fans made reference to the online dance challenge that features the song by posting videos of people attempting the viral craze.

Love Island continues on ITV2.
