Love Island: AJ talks up "nice guy" Hugo after villa exit

Love Island: AJ talks up
AJ Bunker is full of compliments for Hugo Hammond despite being friend-zoned by him just before she left the Love Island villa.

Latest Love Island dumpee AJ Bunker has described Hugo Hammond as "a nice guy" and "really lovely" following her exit from the show.

Together with fellow new arrival Danny Bibby, AJ found herself voted out of the villa by the Islanders after just six days in last night's show.

AJ had made no secret of her desire to get with Hugo during her time in the villa but just before her dumping he put her firmly in the friend zone - just days after he did likewise to the other girl who had expressed an interest in him, Sharon Gaffka.

"Everything he said was this is the kind of guy I want to be with. He has the right morals," said AJ after her exit. "I have certain expectations in a relationship and Hugo meets those expectations.

"I don't feel like I need to teach him how to be a good boyfriend. He has the right morals, knows how to respect a woman, he's really funny, very comfortable to be around. I just feel natural around him.

"As time went on, it was like OK maybe we're not so compatible. But the first few chats, he was approaching me and I really liked that. I like that he came up to me, made me feel comfortable.

"He's a good-looking guy and really lovely. That's all you want – a nice guy in your life! I'm done with idiots."

Asked if they will meet up back in the UK, she replied: "Well, he friend-zoned me now, so I'd be happy to meet up with him as a friend.

"But I feel like, I put in quite a bit of effort and I guess we'll just see when he comes out. I don't think he gave me too much of a chance to be honest or made that much effort."

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
