Georgia made a decision to split up a few days ago.
"Ever since then, I've gravitated towards Georgia. I feel like Georgia is the person I want to be with. I am falling for her. And that being said, I actually refuse to recouple and if it means I have to leave the villa then I will."
He then burst into tears as he rejoined Georgia on the sofa.
Giving a similar speech, Georgia said: "I feel like the last couple of days, I've not only lost a guy that I really fancy but I've also lost my best mate.

Sam and Georgia made the decision to split up during Monday night's show.
After losing both the public vote and a vote by their fellow islanders, the couple were given the option to either go home together or split up and remain in the villa.
The pair decided to remain as single islanders, but they found it a struggle.
After initially attempting to get to know four new faces – Laura Crane, Stephanie Lam, Josh Mair, Paul Knops – the pair were unable to keep away from each other.
Yesterday, sources confirmed that Sam and Georgia had sensationally decided to quit the show.
An insider said: "No one expected these two to leave and it is a massive shock.
"Their fellow islanders were stunned when they spoke about their reasons for quitting.
"It’s going to have a big effect on the show, it's a huge bombshell, and they are going to be massively missed by their co-stars."
