According to reports, the cast of Love Island have been warned about their behaviour in the villa. Earlier this week, Amber and Anna were accused of bullying by some viewers following their treatment of Danny - after his coupling with Arabella caused their friend Yewande to be dumped from the villa. (192 viewers complained to Ofcom about Tuesday's episode.)
A show source told The Sun, ’There has been a lot of backbiting and bitching this series and the producers realised viewers were starting to really notice. So earlier in the week the execs came into the villa for a ‘briefing’ with the contestants and told them they were to rein it in. The message seems to have been ignored by them all given their behaviour on Tuesday night.’
The Sun also reports that execs were keen to speak to Amy over her treatment of Lucie. An ITV spokesman said, ‘We speak to all of the islanders to remind them of what we condone to be acceptable behaviour during their time on the show.’
Almost 3,000 complaints have been made to Ofcom since this year's series began - with people complaining about Maura trying to kiss Tommy, and Joe’s ‘controlling’ behaviour of Lucie.
On Monday, Yewande told Grazia, 'Throughout the whole journey there were always people checking on you. There was psychologist on set 24/7 and you have so much support.'
