I'm a body language expert and here are all the signs 'intimidated and threatened' Jacques was going to quit | The Sun07/12/2022
JACQUES O'Neill has broken down in tears following his failed relationship with Paige Thorne – but is he genuinely sorry?
The 23-year-old shocked fans by dramatically quitting the villa today – after spending days trying to win back Paige Thorne, 24.
Despite saying he'd "deal with the consequences" after 'cheating' on her in Casa Amor, Jacques has walked – and here are the signs he was always going to quit.
According to body language expert Darren Stanton, Jacques has been "threatened and intimidated" by new arrival Adam Collard last night.
Speaking to The Sun on behalf of Slingo, Darren says: "It's clear from Jacques' behaviour he hasn't been happy since coming out of Casa Amor.
"We've seen very specific changes in his personality and the emotions he has shown.

"He's become more withdrawn and less animated and the 'Jack the Lad' bravado he became known for showing in the villa has been missing from him lately.
"It's clear his confidence has been knocked and it's forced him to be reflective of his own behaviour, especially as he's been trying to mend the cracks within his relationship with Paige.
"There's no question that Adam entering the villa left Jacques feeling intimidated, especially as Adam has shown an interest in Paige."
Last night, Jacques was seen in a heated row after being told Adam had been bad-mouthing him to Paige.

In a teaser for tonight's show, Jacques fumed: "Who the f***'s he?
"Just another geezer who's been on the show? He's f***ing nothing mate."
It came as Gemma Owen told her ex: "Oh he was proper slagging you off" – causing Jacques to jump to his feet.
Darren continues: "Hearing Adam criticising his character sparked an immediate reaction from Jacques.
"We saw him initially pull at his jacket, a self-reassurance gesture, as he psyched himself up to approach Adam, with Jacques also displaying a classic chin thrust gesture – a move we make to assert dominance over another in certain situations – as he motioned to Paige to hear what Adam had to say about him, visibly irked.
"Clearly feeling threatened by Adam, it's not surprising that Jacques questioned whether or not to stay in the villa.
"We had started to see his insecurities come through to the surface as he let his pride get the better of him."
A Love Island spokesman today announced: "Jacques has made the decision to leave the villa.
