Love Island's Remi says Jacques 'ruined his time in the villa' with nasty unaired rows

Axed Love Island contestant Remi Lambert has revealed how he came to blows with Jacques O'Neill in a slew of nasty unaired scenes rows.

Chatting with fellow dumped star Afia Tonkmore, the Manchester-based model opened up about his brief time on the show - including the death threats he has received since returning home - and what Love Island viewers didn't get to see during his stay in the Villa.

"There was of lot stuff that wasn't aired - a lot of stuff going on," Remi confesses on YouTube series Reality with Will Njobvu.

"So basically, me and Jacques got into quite a lot of arguments and it just made my experience s**t.

"It ruined it for me.

"People were saying, "It's because he's got a rugby persona' - but you can't treat people like that," he added.

When pressed by Afia about what the clashes were about, Remi explained: "He was just trying to get on to me" before revealing the rugby player would constantly mimic his voice and say things like: "My name's Remi. I'm hard and I'm from Manny."

Remi said he was not the only male in the house that Jacques has been having secret clashes with, but he was alone in standing up for himself.

"It was so jarring but I was the only one to stick up for myself because he would always do that to people and I would just like stick it on him and say 'Shut up!'

"But yeah, we just got into a lot of fights and stuff," he admitted.

Later in the interview, Remi revealed that he has been sent death threats after his appearance on the show.

It comes after Remi was left upset after struggling to perform a rap on Aftersun.

During his first TV interview, host Laura Whitmore asked : "How is it being out?"

"It's gutting," an upset Remi said, adding: "I'm just happy I got to meet Jay."

Laura continued: "You entered the villa as a bombshell, so it's always difficult going into a villa where there's already people and there's already relationships made. What was it like when you walked in?"

Remi said: "That's an experience of a lifetime, walking in with my guy. But it's tough."

Laura then rounded off the interview by asking if he could rap for the audience.

After a moment of silence, Remi began spouting lyrics at the crowd, before cutting off halfway through.

He was then greeted with an applause after the awkward silence.

Many fans rushed to Twitter to comment on the interview - with people saying Remi looked upset and that he shouldn't have been asked to rap.

Speaking during his latest interview, Remi explained how he felt awkward rapping live on TV due to his earpiece giving playback as he attempted to recite some bars.
