LOVE Island’s Marvin Brooks comforted Maura Higgins as she cried following the recoupling ceremony last night.
The dumped islander, 29, thought that the Irish grid girl’s tear’s were for him after she chose to recouple with new boy Chris Taylor, with her decision sending him home.
Several amused fans have taken to Twitter after witnessing the personal trainer’s brief misunderstanding.
Because Maura was actually sobbing over Francesca Allen’s decision to couple up with Curtis Pritchard.
One wrote: “Marvin thinking Maura cried for him made my day #loveisland”
While another added: “Marvin going over coz Maura was crying……..she’s crying coz Francesca picked Curtis not coz she’s just got you a taxi home pal #Loveisland”
A third said: “#Marvin really thought #maura felt bad. No hunny boo boo she was fuming that #Francesca chose #Curtis. It was just perfect timing #LoveIsland”
And a fourth commented: “Was Marvin the only person in the world who thought Maura was crying for HIM? #LoveIsland”
However, others praised Marvin’s efforts at trying to cheer her up.
“LOOK AT MARVIN! Kicked off and he STILL comforted Maura. A true man. #LoveIsland” said one.
Another fan chimed: “Marvin was so lovely to Maura!! So sweet #Loveisland”
