AJ Pritchard has finally reacted to big bro Curtis’ tough situation

Curtis Pritchard has caused his fair share of chaos in the Love Island villa since Amy departed for Casa Amor, and he's not exactly earning many fans either.

He admitted to his 'half-girlfriend' Amy Hart that he was "lying to himself" about their relationship, and that he actually wanted to recouple with new girl Jourdan while Amy was staying loyal at Casa Amor.

Twitter were firmly Team Amy, who was absolutely broken-hearted to hear that her first love didn't feel the same way, and that she was "second best once again".

Curtis' famous brother AJ Pritchard has now had his say in the whole debacle, disagreeing with the rest of the Love Island boys' advice to avoid Amy for the day.

AJ wrote on Twitter: "Don’t give Amy space bro." Molly-Mae sat Curtis down last night and begged him to give her some space to process the difficult news, and Maura encouraged her to end things.

Speaking on Lorraine today, AJ said: "It's hard seeing him and seeing it from the bigger picture."

He added: "Curtis wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s so honest, he literally can’t lie and that’s sometimes his downfall, sometimes I feel like, ‘Just say it this way, it’ll come across maybe nicer than the way you’ve said it…’”

The other girls are blocking Amy from talking to him," he explains. "My advice was just talk to Amy."

AJ also mentioned his disbelief at Curtis' alleged 'cheating': "It’s been portrayed that he’s kind of cheated on her, whereas realistically, yes he kissed another girl, but that was in a task."

"She does need to trust in Curtis, I know it's hard," AJ said.

Asked whether he thought Curtis should stick with Amy, the dancer and performer said: "I think he should stay with Amy. Curtis does what he feels and he wants to get back with her. 100 percent yeah, she's a gorgeous girl."

Celebrities such as Stacey Solomon even tweeted her support for the air hostess, writing:

"Ok Amy I need to hug you. Honestly if the producers at Love Island can help make this happen I’d really appreciate it. My hormones aren’t allowing me to get over what I just saw 'back up plan'."

Explaining his feelings to Amy after she returned from Casa Amor, Curtis told her:

"I realised that I had been lying to myself, I'd been lying to everybody and worst of all I'd been lying to you… Our relationship has stuff we need to work on, it really does and I've lied and said it hasn't."

Later in the Beach Hut, Amy sobbed: "My whole life I've been looking for someone who accepts me for me and I truly thought I'd found that and I thought you'd found that in me… Where do I go from here?"

Curtis was left sleeping alone in the day bed outside, while Amy couldn't stop crying after suffering her first real heartbreak on national television. AJ needs to give his bro better advice than that…
