Tommy told the boys that Georgia had been in tears when he returned to their hotel after a night out – and he was pointing the finger of blame at the women.
We had seen Georgia enjoying a girls' night the evening before, where Ferne McCann had said: "It is embarrassing the fact you have this amazing relationship but in front of a big group of people he talks to you like a piece of s**t. Genuinely, I wouldn't have it. Don't ever get used to someone talking to you like that. That is not how you talk to woman. End of."
The next day, while Tommy was at the pool with Dan Edgar and Pete Wicks when he said Georgia had been "in bits" when he got home.
"She'd been to the villa with the girls all night and they slated me down to the ground. I'm not even getting grief from Georgia, it's from the girls in the villa. I haven't even seen them out here. For them to sit there and upset my girlfriend, all this stuff makes us ten times stronger."
Pete offered his advice: "It's all playground s**t. If you and Georgia are sweet, it doesn't matter what the others say."
Across the pool area, Ferne was noticing Tommy giving her "really bad looks" and told Jess Wright: "All I am saying is sometimes when you call your bird a See You Next Tuesday that don't sit comfortable. I'm not used to men talking to women like that."
Meanwhile, Georgia was confiding in best friend Lydia Bright: "I know they are trying to look out for me but trust me, when I say we have a good relationship. We are more good than bad. We get on amazing."
