Love Island fans accuse liar star of using love-bomb tactic to win show

Love Island fans have accused one contestant of "love-bombing" an islander during the latest recoupling.

Airport security officer Shaq Muhammad had lots of lovely things to say about his partner Tanya Manhenga during his recoupling speech on Thursday night (January 26).

When it was Shaq's turn to reveal why he wanted to couple up with Tanya, he told his castmates: "I can genuinely see myself falling in love with her".

The passionate speech the model hiding her face and blushing by the firepit, with other islanders grinning with joy.

But some skeptical ITV viewers called Shaq a "liar", and other think he's using a crafty trick to woo Tanya and bag his spot in the final.

They reckon he was "love bombing" Tanya, which is when somebody showers a new partner with intense displays of affection.

Fans took to Twitter, with one fan writing: "Tired of Shaq and his love bombing."

A second said: "Man said fall in love Unaa, Shaq is a liar, actress."

A third wrote: "Shaq please LOVE ? In one week," with cry-laughing emojis.

Another said: "Shaq talking about love not even 2 weeks in. He’s really working for that win lol."

A fifth added: "In love ???? Did Shaq really just say that??"

Earlier this week, Shaq told Zara that she was someone he would go for and that he was keeping his options open despite being in a couple with Tanya.

It comes after Anna-May Robey and Haris Namani were sent packing after a brutal recoupling twist tasked Aussie bombshells Jessie Wynter and Aaron Waters with booting a boy and girl off of the show.

Before the show, Shaq said: "I haven’t had the best luck with previous relationships, so I thought, 'why not be in the sun and potentially meet the love of my life?'

"Hopefully, I do come out [of the villa] with my future wife."

He added: "I’m a lovable person. I do put myself first and I’m not scared to just go for what I want, if I have to step on people’s toes or things like that."
