Always an awkward one for the parents, hey
Seeing your loved ones on TV may be exciting, but there’s one thing about Love Island that family of the contestants can’t love: seeing a relative have sex.
Eyal Booker and his on-screen love Megan Barton Hanson were the first couple of this series to have sex after spending a night together in the hideaway.
Now Eyal’s brother, Tal, has opened up about how he and his family reacted to watching the scenes.
Speaking on Lorraine, Tal revealed that it wasn’t too much of a shock to the system given the nature of the show, but that it was still ‘difficult’ for his parents.
‘I think, before he went in, it was something we discussed and came to terms with beforehand so it doesn’t come as a shock,’ he said in the interview.
‘It’s difficult in some aspects for my parents to see…’
The model’s brother (also a model himself, actually) also said that he’s proud of how his brother has acted in the villa.
‘I think he’s very much being himself,’ he added. ‘You’re always going to get people who don’t like someone. I’m proud of the way he’s carried himself and treated everyone. I think he’s doing a good job.
‘The fame thing comes with it, [but] that was never something he was looking for directly. Being a model, it was the next step for him.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
