Celebrity castaway Paul Danan asked Fran Cosgrove for forgiveness yesterday following their heated row last week, which saw the former Hollyoaks star temporarily removed from the Love Island camp.
Having grabbed Fran's attention on returning to the camp, Paul pleaded that he was "just a scared little boy inside" - a bizarre attempt to explain away his apparent instability, more suitable for a psychologist's couch.
"When I was younger, I got really bullied and I feel like I'm being picked on a lot. And I know it's not true, it's in my head," he protested.
Fran, along with the other celebs, welcomed Paul back into the fold and reassured the hot-headed star that all was "forgotten".
But it wasn't long before Fran was moaning about last week's bust-up once again.
"I wouldn't take that s*** off anyone ever," the Irishman grumbled to gentle giant Du'aine.
"If someone doesn't show big respect I'm not going to show them respect. It's manners and I feel really strongly about it," he continued.
Only time will tell whether the love will keep flowing between Paul and Fran, but their rocky relationship may be in for more of a fighting chance now that Paul has promised to remain tee-total for the test of his time on the island.
"If I dare to touch a sip of anything, that's my eviction..... I'm really glad about it," he told his fellow celebs.
Paul's island friend Issy, herself tee-total, has vowed to help her mate stay away from the demon drink so he can stay on the island, which means Fran may be hoping he falls off the wagon!
