Love island viewers were ecstatic as Alex George finally got a kiss.

The A&E doctor has not found love in the villa and has been in a friendship couple with Samira Mighty.

Things were looking up in Monday night’s instalment of the ITV2 show, when new girls Ellie Brown and Zara McDermott both picked him for a date.

His meal with Zara ended without a smooch and the episode finished without viewers seeing what went on with Ellie.

However, a brief clip from Tuesday night’s instalment saw the doctor puckering up and leaning in, delighting fans.

“I actually feel like a proud mum right now !!” one thrilled viewer said on Twitter.

“YAAS ELLIE AND ALEX KISSED OMG PLS BE THE ONE FOR HIM PLEASE,” said another.

One fan tweeted: “ALEX KISSED ELLIE OMG SO HAPPY FOR HIM FEEL LIKE A PROUD MOTHER U GO HUNNI U CAN DO IT.”

“Alex going from questioning ‘what is wrong with me’ to calling himself a knight in shining armour and going in for a kiss on a date is the confidence growth I live for,” said another.

While Alex enjoyed a good evening, many of the girls were feeling nervous as Ellie and Zara were able to choose three men each to date.

One of Ellie’s choices was Laura Anderson’s partner Wes Nelson, who also confessed to finding her attractive.

The whole thing left Laura feeling insecure.

“I feel a little bit sad,” she said in the Beach Hut.

“I am just feeling so insecure and it’s rubbish. I’m a confident woman – what is wrong with me?”

Many viewers took Laura’s side, questioning how Wes could become interested in someone else so easily.

“How can Wes go from telling Laura that he’s falling for her, to just not caring about her or her feelings at all in the space of a few days,” asked one person.

Another said: “Wes we were rooting for you!! We liked you babe but you legit just messed that up! Your nearly on the same level as Eyal and Adam !! Stop now!! If I was Laura I’d put you on the naughty step till you were ready to apologise.”

Love Island continues on ITV2.
