Love Island’s Chloe Burrows had an awkward moment with Hugo Hammond on tonight’s episode as he finally made a move.
Hugo had saved Chloe from being dumped earlier this week and the pair were in the villa as a friendship couple.
There was a shock dumping on Sunday night after a public vote, and the pair were relieved to learn they had been saved. As they heard the good news Hugo appeared to go in to kiss Chloe, who opted for a hug to celebrate instead.
After some encouragement from fellow islander Aaron Francis, shortly before he was eliminated with Lucinda Strafford in a double dumping, Hugo worked up the courage to see if Chloe wanted to be more than friends.
Unfortunately he was pied off as Chloe didn’t want to ruin their close friendship.
As he pulled her for a private chat, she said: ‘I don’t want to force it, if it’s not happening naturally.’
He seemed to take it pretty well, adding that the ‘line is drawn’ before they shared a hug.
‘I literally love you more than anything,’ she added.

All hell broke loose on Thursday’s episode when Toby Aromolaran decided to call time on his romance with Chloe, instead coupling up with new bombshell Abigail Rawlings.
Toby saved Abi around the firepit, and Hugo was the last boy standing with a choice between Chloe or Georgia Townend (who he had just pied off).
Hugo chose Chloe and left everyone stunned as he took shots at Toby in his recoupling speech, saying she ‘doesn’t deserve to be treated how she has been in these last 24 hours.’
After initially refusing to talk things through, in Sunday’s episode Toby agreed to put everything on the table in a private chat with Hugo. Agree to disagree, seemed to be the end result.
Toby hit out at Hugo for ‘trying to embarass me’.
‘I feel betrayed massively,’ he said. ‘I was struggling wtih the decision and you’re acting like I purposefully hurt the girl.’

Hugo replied: ‘I’m not sorry, I’d do it again. I hope that Abigail isn’t the next person for this situation to happen again’ before calling him a ‘bull in a china shop’ with his approach to dating.
Toby spat back: ‘You need to focus on yourself. You can have your judgement but your opinion doesn’t matter to me any more.’
‘You’re gonna think I needed that, you might not see it now, you might huff and puff,’ Hugo said before adding ‘I understand where you’re coming from.’
Hugo then went to cuddle with Chloe on the day beds as she told the beach hut: ‘He didn’t do it out of malice he did it out of looking aftfer me, and if people can’t see that… f**k em.’
Toby later apologised to Chloe for his behaviour and squashed their falling out.
Monday night sees the return of Casa Amor with twelve new bombshells set to turn heads and cause trouble for our couples.
Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2.
