Love Island 2019 had its first recoupling and it was full of drama – as well as bringing a moment of hilarity for viewers.
While the tension ramped up over who Lucie Donlan would choose to be her partner between Joe Garratt and Tommy Fury, it was the fate of Anton Danyluk that gave viewers a chuckle.
Gym owner Anton had been working his way around the girls as he looked to get himself into a couple and avoid being the first boy to be dumped from the ITV2 dating show.
The Scottish hunk had launched a plan to woo Anna Vakili and steal her from the arms of Sherif Lanre, who had coupled up with her at the start of the week.
Not looking to put all his eggs in one basket, Anton also put some irons in the fire with Amber Gill and new girl Molly-Mae Hague.
So, it is fair to say he was pretty confident that he would be chosen and it was this belief that brought one of the lighter moments of the week so far.
When Anna stood up to make her choice, she described how she had ‘got a connection’ with this person over the past couple of days and championed his ‘sexy body’.
Anton puffed his chest out and allowed a wry smile to grow across his face but he soon was a picture of deflation when Anna then picked Sherif to couple up with.
Of course, Love Island fans were quick to pounce on his snub and took to Twitter to share how they found the moment hilarious.
One viewer tweeted: “When Anna says the guy she was picking had a good body Anton totally thought she was picking him! His face when she didn’t #LoveIsland.”

A third tweeted: “Anton was smiling away as if she was going to pick him oh my God I’m embarrassed for him”
Despite the awkwardness of that moment, there was good news for Anton in the end as Amber saved his bacon and chose him for the days ahead, leaving Callum Macleod as the odd one out and facing an early flight home.
Love Island airs all week at 9pm on ITV2.
