The beauty wasted no time in moving on with the tattooed hunk after Hugo made it clear that they should just be friends, with the PE teacher then encouraging her to give things a go with Danny.
Viewers were left divided by the action, with many shocked at the rate in which AJ moved on, while others hit out at Hugo for dumping her.
That was quick! Tuesday’s Love Island proved to be an eventful episode as AJ locked lips with fellow newcomer Danny, just minutes after she was friendzoned by Hugo
During the islanders’ 70s themed party, Hugo sat AJ down and broke it to her that he didn’t want to pursue a romantic relationship with her.
He explained: ‘At the beginning, there was something I couldn’t quite put my finger on, and I thought the more we got to know each other, the more time we spent together, I might be able to kind of figure out what it was.
‘But, at the minute I just see that you and I are better off as friends on that front.’
Suggesting she should move on, he added: ‘I genuinely think that you and Danny could have something really great, I think you guys bounce off each other.

‘It would be rude of me and wrong of me to just float through this and do ‘you and I’ and take it slow when I’m not 100 percent into it.’
And as AJ seemed stunned by Hugo’s change of heart, she was shortly seen taking Hugo’s advice as she shared a chat with Danny.
Danny made his intentions very clear and it wasn’t too long before the pair were sharing a steamy snog.

Reacting to the kiss and Hugo pieing AJ, fans were left divided, with one writing: ‘literally 2 mins after hugo tells aj that he’s not feeling it she went and kissed danny, yeah she was sooooo into hugo lmao.’
‘I don’t think its fair that AJ is actively looking for a relationship and yet she’s at risk while Hugo is enjoying a free holiday’ commented a second person.
A third shared: ‘AJ went for the safe bet in Hugo and he saw right through her, gotta love it.’

‘No sorry I missed that did Hugo end it with Aj ??? So she moved on to Danny ???’ wrote a fourth viewer.
‘Wasn’t Danny beefing with Aaron only the other day for moving into Lucinda yet he’s straight in with AJ approximately 0.4596939284 seconds after Hugo breaks things off???’ ranted a fifth.
With another watcher adding: ‘Damn Hugo is friendzoning everyone.’
Meanwhile, fans were left in uproar as the show ended on yet another cliffhanger as the fate of six islanders hung in the balance.

The islanders were left reeling as a text revealed that viewers were voting for their favourites, with the boy and girl receiving the least amount of votes facing elimination from the villa.
But as Lucinda, Chloe, AJ, Teddy, Danny and Toby awaited the result, the show suddenly came to an abrupt end, leaving fans enraged as one remarked it’s ‘getting pretty predictable now’.
Love Island continues Wednesday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
