"Love Island" star Anton Danyluk is "hopeless with love" according to his pals.
The Scottish hunk had an explosive row on the ITV2 reality show with his partner Belle Hassan over the weekend after a series of relationship gaffes, and his friends outside the infamous villa have said his romance rough patches are caused by his lack of experience with relationships.
A source close to Anton told The Sun Online: "He can't help himself - he's not used to relationships. He doesn't realise he keeps putting his foot in it with Belle because he's hopeless with love.
"He's used to being the hot gym owner with girls throwing themselves at him in Scotland. But things don't usually get this serious for Anton, so it's like he doesn't know what to do.
"The Belle situation has thrown him. He is honestly a nice guy, but his friends are cringing for him as he hasn't really got game."
This week, the 24-year-old gym owner was forced to sleep on the sofa after an argument with 21-year-old Belle, which was started when Anton chose to kiss Anna Vakili during a challenge.
But following their row, Anton insisted he wanted to patch things up with the blonde beauty.
He said: "I slept on the couch because I felt like it was an emotional rollercoaster last night.
"Regardless of the situation, I think we're going to disagree. The bottom line is that you feel I've mugged you off and I feel like you've mugged me off."
And admitting she's "scared of being hurt again", Belle then told Anton: "I know that I am a hot-head and that is something I have to work on. When I've fell for someone, they've hurt me and I'm scared of being hurt again."
"Love Island" continues tonight (16.07.19) at 9pm on ITV2.
