LOVE Island fans were all baffled by the way bombshell Jacques O’Neill was pronouncing his own name.
The Professional Rugby League star – who has played for Castleford Tigers since he was a teenager – arrived in the villa last night.

He caused a stir when it was revealed he used to date Gemma Owen.
But some Love Island fans were more interested in whether he was saying his own name wrong.
The “s” is supposed to be silent but viewers were convinced he was saying “Jacks”.
One remarked: “Is Jacques mispronouncing his own name because he said it as if it’s spelt ‘Jacks’.”

Another said: “Why does Jacques pronounce his own name wrong?”
Explaining why they broke up, Jacques blamed concentrating on rugby too much.
He said: “I split up with my ex and then I was seeing someone else. I was concentrating so much on my rugby and then I had that injury.
He added: “I think it needs to be the right person, at the right time.”
However, he has been plagued with injury, having not played for a year following a hamstring re-attachment surgery.
Before he entered Love Island, the sportsman admitted that he “falls easily”.
He said: “I literally know if they’re going to be my girlfriend within a week. I fall pretty quick.”
“I’ll look after someone close to me to the full extent I can. I would have a baby in two or three years.

“I think I’d be good with babies too, they’d be good looking wouldn’t they?”
He added: “I am loving, I’ve got loads to give! At family parties, I always bring the laughs.”
Jacques and Gemma dated a year and a half ago
