LOVE Island's Paige Thorne has deleted all traces of Jacques O'Neill from her Instagram after he apologised amid the ongoing bullying row.
Paige, 24, and rugby player Jacques, 23, were coupled up in the Love Island villa before he made the shock decision to quit the show.
Paramedic Paige later got together with returning bombshell Adam Collard and eagle-eyed fans on Reddit have noticed she made the telling move of removing Jacques from her account.
It comes after Andrew Le Page confirmed he'd unfollowed Jacques on Instagram after he was accused of bullying Tasha Ghouri.
Speaking about distancing himself from Jacques, Andrew said on Heat's Under The Duvet : “Yeah, it obviously is true [I unfollowed Jacques].'
“Tasha is my priority and obviously there was a video that came out. We're trying to move away from it all and just be ourselves and get on with life.”

Last night Jacques took to Instagram to comment on bullying claims, after he was also accused of targeting Remi Lambert.
In a lengthy statement, Jacques addressed the situation and apologised for his actions.
He wrote: "I just want to acknowledge the situation that's happening right now and apologise if my behaviour has caused offence or been misinterpreted over the last few weeks.
"I genuinely have no bad feelings towards anyone and I've not meant for anything to come across that way at all. It was not my intention and I'm genuinely sorry if it has.

"Life has been very overwhelming recently and admittedly I've probably not handled myself in the best possible way.
"I take full responsibility for my actions. I'm aware I'm far from perfect and that there is work that needs to be done on myself."
The rugby player also revealed that he has now begun therapy, adding: "I had my first therapy session on Monday which really took me out of my comfort zone, I know I have needed this for years but it's only now I have decided to get help."
Paige and Adam appeared on the Lorraine show today and she revealed she's returning to her old job.
She told stand-in host Ranvir Singh: "I've got meetings to go back to being a paramedic next week.
"I saw an ambulance with sirens on recently and I seriously had FOMO (fear of missing out.)
"I am going to go back into that and do a little bit of some other opportunities."
Proving supportive of Paige's choice, Adam added: "I think people will be surprised about how much she spoke about that in the villa."
Ranvir suggested some telly fans may have been "surprised" by her choice, to which Paige replied: "I genuinely love my job."
