Now, we don't approve in the slightest when women are pitted against each other. It's usually fairly toxic, but we genuinely are confused about the Amy versus Lucie debacle.
Twitter was going OFF last night after the latest Love Island recoupling, where Lucie was saved by Joe. Unfortunately for Amy, her disappointed facial expression was caught on camera, and fans of the show were not exactly loving her look.
It's safe to say the viewers turned on Amy, after the former friends came to blows during the food fight task. Lucie definitely went a little overboard with her targeting of Amy, but the treatment of Lucie in the villa seems pretty unfair.
amy is the ‘friend’ that slowly prays for your downfall behind your back, look at her face when joe picked lucie and ofc at the end she HAD TO talk about lucie and joe#loveisland pic.twitter.com/WDJR0gUR7Y

Yikes. "Amy is the ‘friend’ that slowly prays for your downfall behind your back," expressed one Twitter user. That sentiment was echoed online, with the audience sticking up for the surfer chick.
Even Dani Dyer had her say; "Just want to give Lucie a cuddle, they need to chill out and leave the girl alone." Joe was acting like a possessive boyfriend again, calling her male friendships "weird" for no reason.
The girls in the villa are also extremely put out by the fact that Lucie gets on with the boys a lot better, and now the poor gal is getting more and more isolated.

Fans are getting concerned for Lucie's wellbeing, after her female friendships seem to have imploded and Joe is arguably carrying out emotional manipulation.
Can the producers make sure Lucie is ok please. @LoveIsland

Malin Andersson tweeted; "Can the producers make sure Lucie is ok please." Totally fair comment, in our view. The showrunners have to look out for this type of issue in the villa, and for the mental health of contestants.
"This was horrible to watch. Mental health has been such a big thing but she is constantly being targeted and being made to feel shit. Give the poor girl a break and maybe some support," tweeted another fan.

The viewers are claiming that Amy is leading the pack in terms of bitchiness, and is possibly jealous of Lucie and wants to remain the number one couple alongside Curtis Pritchard, her 'half-boyfriend.'
The girls are bitchy but Amy’s leading it all, she don’t like Lucie and she’s 100% manipulative. She’s turning everyone against her and she can see it’s making the poor girl miserable, then she’s turning on the tears for effect. 18+ acting 12, it’s a no from me #LoveIsland https://t.co/gyYbS9APVE

"She’s turning everyone against her and she can see it’s making the poor girl miserable, then she’s turning on the tears for effect," wrote another Twitter user, having zero time for Amy.
Lucie was trending on Twitter last night after the episode, with many expressing worry for the 21-year-old, and rightfully so.
Lucie is probably the least shadiest girl in the villa and she's been nothing but nice but sis is out here crying every night because she feels so alienated thanks to Amy's manipulations. And to make things worse now Joe's turned too #Loveisland pic.twitter.com/IPxD44gIVc

Another fan pointed out that the sudden turn taken against Lucie began after the whole 'half-boyfriend' announcement, where Amy claimed Lucie stole her and Curtis' thunder. Bit strange?

Amy's consistent talk of Lucie has caught the attention of the audience, who noticed her seeming obsession with discussing Lucie's absence from the group and relationship with Joe.
The girls are definitely ganging up on Lucie. They’re literally oblivious to Amy’s selfish and attention seeking ways and they talk about girl code? Girl please grow the fuck up! #loveisland

We're not sure what Curtis really thinks about Amy's constant talk of Lucie, but we don't think he'll have a lot of time for behind-your-back bitchiness.
I honestly don’t know why Amy cares so much about what Lucies doing.. anyone else find it weird? Like, maybe she wants some time on her own?! It’s intense man! Leave the girl to work our without making her feel like she has to sit in a 24/7 mothers meeting.. #LoveIsland

"Maybe she wants some time on her own?! It’s intense man! Leave the girl to work our without making her feel like she has to sit in a 24/7 mothers meeting," wrote another viewer.
It's an extremely claustrophobic environment in the villa, it makes sense why Lucie would want time to herself.

Time will tell whether Lucie and Joe will stay together, despite Joe's clear emotional issues and lack of self-esteem. Why else would he be obsessed with Lucie only becoming friends with girls?
Amy and Curtis seem to be stable, but if Amy apparently continues to create a bitchy atmosphere, anything could happen.
Tune in tonight at 9pm to see the drama unfold.
