Love Island’s dumped Islander Hugo Hammond hit back against claims his kiss with Amy Day took “five takes” in Casa Amor and has finally explained why he said “job done” at the end.
Appearing in a new interview on ITV daytime show Lorraine on Wednesday, the PE teacher spilled all to host Christine Lampard, who is filling in for regular presenter Lorraine Kelly over the summer holidays.
Mum-of-two Christine, 42, told her guest that when fellow former Islander Aaron Francis had appeared on Lorraine the week before, he admitted he wasn’t impressed by Hugo’s reaction to kissing brunette beauty Amy, 25.
"I look forward to seeing Aaron soon,” Hugo, 24, laughed in response.
“The ‘job done’ comment was meant to be something you just think, but it just came out,” the star went on.
He then shut down any suggestion that producers had been frustrated with Hugo during the romantic moment and that the camera crew had had to do five takes.
“It wasn't filmed five times or anything like what’s been reported,” Hugo claimed.
When Hugo and Amy left the villa, the former’s comments about his Love Island journey being “tragic” immediately put his love interest’s back up during their exit interview.
Hugo continued to shoot himself in the foot when he told the cameras he was “looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for Mr Hammond,” once again leaving Amy out of the scenario.

In a bid to help the pair get closure on their time in the villa, bosses set up a brunch meeting, but it ended in a row.
And when the duo appeared via video link on Aftersun, presenter Laura Whitmore was forced to navigate their awkward dynamics in the studio too.
There was no love lost as Amy said her greatest regret was believing Hugo was on the show to “find love” and wished she hadn’t decided to couple up with him.
While Hugo claimed he was just Amy's "green card" into the villa.

Going further to explain his own position on what happened, Hugo told Christine: “I had such a good run in there but It was definitely the right time for me to leave.
"I think potentially I didn't want to compromise for love. I wouldn't say I was picky but I just didn't get that spark like the other boys had,” the former contestant added.
Hugo, who recently said he would like to return to teaching following his stint on the show, was dumped by his fellow islanders alongside Surrey-based actress Amy in a voting twist last week.
The pair were also joined by Clarisse Juliette and Sam Jackson, who had both been unsuccessful in their attempts to start up relationships with Tyler Cruickshank and Faye Winter.
