Viewers tuning into tonight's Love Island have taken it upon themselves to leap to Nas Majeed's defence.

They were left disgruntled after Nas attempted to offer comfort Jess Gale after her twin Eve became the first to be evicted from the villa during a controversial recoupling.

"We're all here for you if you ever need to talk," he told a tearful Jess.

As Nas offered his comforts, Shaughna Phillips told him that they were trying to have a girls' chat.

Fans were not happy, heading to Twitter to voice their opinions.

One wrote: "Shaughna to Nas who just trying to offer support to heartbroken leftover twin: 'OMG we're trying to have girl chat!'

"Rude. Pure rude. #LoveIsland #JusticeForNas."

Fans branded the girls' treatment of Nas 'disgusting'

Another penned: "It really p***** me off how rude some of the girls are to Nas... #loveisland."

A third raged: "Why are all the girls rude to Nas?

"It's a bit mad to me cause he seems like the most genuine guy on the show. At most he just doesn't know when someone isn't interested #loveisland."
