Love Island viewers have been left a little hot under the collar after a raunchy strip tease from Jaxon last night.

Jax — who is a professional stripper by trade — surprised his love interest Shelby with a racy performance by the pool and fans can’t get enough.

In the steamy Magic Mike moment he gyrated and flexed his body to the song Pony, showing the whole of Australia his impressive moves.

Shelby can’t believe her eyes as he then picked her up and flipped her around as part of the routine and neither could the rest of the Islanders.

“Jaxon, you turned me on,” Amelia declared, while Shelby said it was “good”.

While some fans took to social media to demand more, many declared the whole thing “cringe-worthy”.

Despite the mixed reviews online, Shelby loved it though as she thanked Jax for his moves by rewarding him with a “sexy” massage.

“I’m going to try and do this sexily, are you ready?” she said, squirting oil on his back.

After, the pair shared a kiss suggesting love really is blossoming between them.

The show has been slammed over its racy content since it’s launch last month, something host Sophie Monk has fiercely defended.

The 38-year-old called it “unapologetically hot” in an interview with TV Week, adding it matched her own personal ethos.

“This is quirky and edgy, so it fits my style completely,” she told the publication. “It’s sexy, it’s unapologetically hot and it isn’t afraid of what it is.”
