Biomedical student Tanya, 22, and airport security worker Shaq, 24, were seen snuggled up in last night’s episode and she allowed Shaq to lean in for a smooch.

But Love Island fans had plenty to say on the matter and claimed she felt pressured into the snog.

Londoner Shaq has been smitten with Scouse Tanya since first clocking her in Cape Town and she has resisted his charms until last night.

Earlier in the episode, he had told her he wanted to “keep her close”.

He said: “That was intense — something like that kind of puts things into perspective, in those kinds of situations you…”

Tanya asked: “You what?” to which Shaq said: “I just want to keep you close.”

She then swerved a kiss and said she wanted to wait until they shared a private moment in bed.

Some viewers claimed they felt uncomfortable with how the couple’s first kiss played out on screen.

One reacted on Reddit: “I think Tanya only kissed Shaq cause she felt pressured.”

Another said “That Shaq didn’t respect Tanya’s wishes to wait longer for the first kiss. He basically just kept annoying her until she gave in. Red flags 🚩”

However, another fan reasoned: “Yeah I agree, it’s slightly concerning but not quite a red flag, could very easily become one though”

And a fourth said: “She initiated the kiss after he said he’s going to let it happen on her terms.”

Tanya later told the girls Shaq “got so excited” while besotted Shaq said to the boys: “The kiss was unreal. She has the softest lips.”

The lad could be about to get his heart broken too after Tanya was whisked away on a date with new bombshell David Salako – and sparks flew.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
