Love Island 2018: Eyal Booker's Family Receive 'Sick Death Threats'
Just before the most recent recoupling, Love Island fans were shocked to see Eyal pull Megan towards him for a smooch completely out of the blue...
Fans, as well as competitor for Megan's heart, Dr. Alex, were all convinced the stunt was just an attempt to sway Megan into picking Eyal just moments before the recoupling.
Now it seems like Eyal's bold move is affecting his family back home, as his older brother claims that online trolls have been targeting his relatives.

Eyal's older brother, Ariel, claims that angry fans have sent "disgusting death threats" via social media.
Ariel went on to say: "Last night it was a little hard to take the hate that he was getting.
"People have said very nasty things, it's crazy that people can make such disgusting comments.
"I understand it all comes with reality TV but I think sending someone death threats for kissing a girl in front of someone else is ridiculous.
"It was a huge shock for me because it's entertainment, so to threaten our family over it is very absurd."
Megan and Eyal enjoyed the kiss in front of Dr. Alex, with Megan pulling Eyal in for a little more TLC.
@LoveIsland is it just me or has anyone noticed #Eyal or however you spell it is so obsessive of #Megan. Literally he gives her no choice than to kiss him and even has his arm over her in the diary room..

"If people think Eyal is just going to sit back and let someone else have a go with a girl that he likes, that's ridiculous! It's fair game.
"They have been in the villa for seven days - not seven weeks, Eyal has not built a long lasting bond with Alex just yet.
"The boys have been nice to each other and have been friends in the villa but at the end of the day Eyal is single and Alex is also single - so when a new girl comes into the villa that they both like it is fair game.
"He would never do anything that wasn't reciprocated - he's not a pest."
Ariel has pleaded with fans to leave his family alone.
Love Island continues weeknights on ITV2, 9pm.
