Leanne summoned Mike for a chat in the garden and said to him: “It’s been two weeks and I feel I should have stronger feelings than I do.
“I feel I’ve given it time and I’ve wanted us to work, but I feel how much more time can I give it before I have to admit it’s not banging.
“I don’t know what’s missing.”
Mike called her words “a bit strong” and he could have done with some more “clarity” from her.
She countered: “I’ve given something a chance.
“I’ve been getting to know you and it just so happens I don’t like you.”
Reflecting on the split in the Beach Hut, Mike said: “It’s always difficult when you do genuinely like someone and it doesn’t work out, but you know but you just have to take it on the chin and move.”
Earlier in the episode Leanne told the girls: I think Im going to have to just lock it off with Mike. I think I just have to end it.
“I feel like Ive given it time Its been two weeks, surely I should like him more than this?
“I feel like Ive just got the ick.
She added: Maybe I shouldnt have left it this long but genuinely I was trying, I wanted to like him, I wanted to catch feelings, but its just not coming.
“Now Ive got the ick, everything he does actually annoys me.
Sophie urged Leanne to pull Mike for a chat straight away.
They had been tipped to win, with viewers backing them as one of the strongest couples.
But doubts began to creep in for both over the last week.
