Neil Jones, 37, suggested Love Island 2019 star Anton Danyluk’s behaviour is “desperate” in an explosive tweet about tonight’s eventful show. The Strictly Come Dancing professional took to Twitter to share his views about the 24-year-old Islander after he didn’t waste any time in grafting Tommy Fury’s current partner Molly-Mae Hague, 19. Love Island viewers saw Anton approaching Tommy, 20, for a chat in the villa as he revealed he was attracted to the social media influencer and was planning to make a move on her. In spite of the boxer’s initial concerns about the competition, Neil seemed to imply he had nothing to worry about in the situation.
The Strictly choreographer wrote in view of his 57,000 followers: “All the guys are happy with Anton speaking to the girls because face it,
“If you check the word desperate in the dictionary you will see the name ANTON #loveisland.”
Neil’s followers took to the comments section of his tweet to air their thoughts about the latest love triangle on the ITV2 programme.
One amused fan responded: “AHAHAHAHAHA NEIL YOU SHOULD BE A PART TIME COMEDIAN.”(sic,)
Another agreed: “This is the best Anton tweet I’ve ever seen”
A third wrote: “SAVAGE, I love it.”
A fourth Love Island viewer sided with Anton, replying: “That was a bit rude apologise.”
However, a Strictly fan appeared to be slightly confused about which Anton Neil was referring to, adding: “I don’t watch Love Island (sorry) so until I saw the hashtag at the bottom of your tweet I wondered what Anton Du Beke had been up to lol.”
Last week, Neil took the opportunity to tease his Strictly co-star AJ Pritchard, 24, about his younger brother Curtis Pritchard’s intimate display with Amy Hart, 27, in the villa.
The dance expert’s cheeky comment came after the 23-year-old reality star shared a sweet kiss and cuddle in bed with the air hostess after developing their new relationship on the show.
Neil addressed AJ after the episode aired as he wrote: “@Aj11Ace how does it feel to watch your baby brother on TV in a bed? #LoveIsland.”
Luckily, AJ managed to side-step the potentially awkward moment as he replied: “XX Hilarious”, alongside two crying laughing emojis.
Neil recently told fans about his hopes for Curtis to win Love Island, as he gushed on the social media platform: “Wow even I want to couple up with Curtis #loveisland.”
In a separate tweet, the dancer mentioned AJ again as he wrote: “GO CURTIS @Aj11Ace your bro is going to win this. He’s got my support #loveisland.”
Many viewers agreed with Neil and joined him in sharing their appreciation of the Love Island hopeful.
One wrote: Definitely @CurtisPritchard to win Love Island such a gentleman
Another enthusiastically replied: “PREACH IT JONES.”
Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2.
