Love Islands Paige has please like me Adam gesture, says body language expert

The romance between paramedic Paige Thorne and rugby player Jacques O'Neill on this year’s Love Island has kept us all gripped from the moment it began, with plenty of ups and downs.

But the biggest bombshell came recently, when Jacques, 23, made the emotional decision to leave the show.

The pair had only just reunited and appeared to be getting on well again, following Jacques’ kiss with Casa Amor newcomer Cheyenne, 28.

But the arrival of former Love Islander Adam Collard set the cat among the pigeons when he made a beeline for Paige, 24, and she responded by flirting her socks off.

After Jacques found out that Adam, 26, had been bad-mouthing him and got confrontational with Paige, she was then left questioning their romance.

So what does the future hold for Jacques and Paige? Although he declared that he wanted to make her his girlfriend when the show was over, it remains to be seen whether she will wait for him.

And her behaviour before he left the villa isn’t an encouraging sign, according to body language expert Inbaal Honigman.

“As Paige is talking to the girls, after Jacques's initial outburst, she twirls her nails in a circular motion, playing with her thumb and fingers in a 'counting' gesture, as if she's calculating," she adds.

"She is playing the game. Later on in the same conversation she is biting her nail, which is a thinking gesture. There is thought behind her every move, nothing is really spontaneous,” says Inbaal.

On the other hand, Inbaal notes that the signs are clear that Paige is attracted to Adam.

“When Paige is chatting to Adam, she licks her teeth several times, which comes across as a 'please like me' gesture. It's a movement that is preening, grooming, as if to say 'have I got lipstick on my teeth?', similar to playing with your hair when you want someone to find you attractive," she says.

"This shows that her defences are not up when she talks to Adam, and in addition, she uses her whole body to emphasise her words, which is not closed-off at all, she's very focused on him, and looks like she wants him to find her attractive.”

So will Paige stay loyal to Jacques or make her move on newcomer Adam? And does he really want to pursue a romance with her, or keep his options open to the other ladies in the villa?

Whatever happens, we can predict that there will be plenty more drama to come.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
