Love Island viewers react as Davide couples up with Gemma despite age gap
People aren't happy.
Love Island fans have made their feelings clear after Davide decided to couple up with Gemma in the second episode of the series on Tuesday night.
Making his choice in front of his fellow Islanders, Davide said: “Naturally, it’s not been easy to choose because it’s only been 24 hours. It’s difficult to try and know everyone and try to make the right decision.”
It wasn't long before viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the new pairing.
Gemma & Davide are not compatible AT ALL 😂 #loveisland

Meanwhile, others have said they feel uncomfortable about the age gap between the pair.
While both contestants are consenting adults, Davide is 27-years-old and Gemma is 19-years-old.
It comes after viewers threatened to make a complaint to Ofcom following Monday night's episode which showed Gemma kiss Davide during a game of truth or dare.

Tuesday night's recoupling meant that Liam, who seems to be already a fan favourite, was left single and vulnerable.
Fortunately, all is not lost as tonight's episode will see two bombshells enter the villa to stir things up.
The public are set to vote for which boys they want to see go on a date with newbies, Afia and Ekin-Su.

Londoner Afia said: "If I see a guy that I want in the villa I'm definitely going to make sure I get him. Watch out girls, I'm coming for your man."
"It just seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet someone, have an amazing summer, just have so much fun and have a bit of a summer romance as well.
"I fall in love quickly, too quickly, two dates I am like, ‘OMG I am obsessed with this boy, he’s everything.’"
Meanwhile, Ekin-Su promised to "bring the whole package to the villa - drama, tears, laughter, joy and love".
"I'm looking for the love of my life. I'm not there to make friends. If someone wants to have an argument with me, bring it on."
