Love Island 2022: Jacques reveals he knew Cheyanne when he was 19 and had a crush on her

Jacques O’Neill has revealed that he already knew Cheyanne Kerr before their fling during Casa Amor.

The ex-Love Islander, 23, shocked fans when he had a brief dalliance with the 23-year-old, despite having formed a strong bond already with Paige Thorne, 24.

But it seems their relationship stretched back even further, with Jacques admitting that he had wanted to be with Cheyanne when he was younger.

Jacques O’Neill has revealed that he already knew Cheyanne Kerr before their fling during Casa Amor.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, he revealed: ‘Cheyanne is a lovely girl, I already knew her from when I was 19, It was weird because I wanted to date her at the time.’

Despite the previous attraction however, Jacques said he soon realized that the pair would not become a couple.

He said: ‘I found out while I was chatting to her that nothing was going to come close to what I had with Paige. But from the moment I kissed her in bed I felt the worst I’ve ever felt in my life.’

Jacques tearfully quit the villa after Casa Amor, citing the negative effect of the show on his mental health.

The rugby player said that after his exit he forced himself to watch the Casa Amor episodes where he cracked on with Cheyanne and Mollie Salmon.

He said: ‘I watched the Casa Amor episodes to torture myself and look at my actions. I was disgusted in myself, I understand the hate. I’m feeling quite numb, I will wait for Paige on the outside, but I’m not watching the show again, I can’t do it.’

Jacques also appeared on After Sun on Sunday night, where he reacted to Paige’s kiss with Adam Collard.

Host Laura Whitmore quizzed him on his thoughts about Paige’s new romance, and he expressed he was happy for her, despite saying he would wait for her on the outside.

He said: ‘We had a good connection and were really getting on. I did see things on the outside working between us but as I say, she she’s doing what she needs to do. ‘

Jacques also said he felt he had ‘no more tears left to cry’ following his emotional exit.

He said: ‘The first thing I did when I got home was watch the episode with my mum – that last episode. I said to my mum ‘listen I’ve got no more tears left’. I’d been so emotional.

‘I literally stuck it on and put a brave face on for my mum and looked at her and we were just like ‘offt’.’

Speaking about his return home, Jacques added: ‘It just got too much for me in there, I needed to see the boys [friends] and my candle.’

The rugby player said he was worried he would ‘lose control’ and end up ‘getting physical’ in the villa, so made the decision to leave the show.
