Love Island Viewers Lodged Almost 800 Complaints This Weekend

Love Island Viewers Lodged Almost 800 Complaints This Weekend

The UK's broadcasting watchdog has received nearly 500 complaints about Longford Love Island contestant Maura Higgins.

Ofcom has received around 486 complaints about her advances, and some viewers have called her to be removed from the villa.

Meanwhile, over 300 people weren't happy over the treatment of surfer Lucie Donlan.

This morning, Piers said: "What part of "no" means no?"

"That's the new rule isn't it?" "If this was a bloke she'd be out of there, arrested, career ruined".

"Poor Tommy, he looks utterly traumatised".

Last year's victor Dani Dyer and host Caroline Flack have even sided with Donlan over Garratt's comments about Fury, with Flack saying on Love Island's follow-up show Aftersun: "Is "Is he weird? Tommy looked like a victim".

Maura caused a stir when she entered the villa last week.

A second shared: "Ngl if a guy did what Maura did to Tommy - forcing for a kiss and invading personal space, the whole internet would be screaming about men disrespecting women".

Speaking to Anton by the pool about her previous chat with Maura, she said: "I still haven't had the chance to speak to Maura yet, to which Anton mused: 'It just seems as though she was looking for an argument yesterday".

Viewers have also complained about Joe's behaviour towards Lucie.

"I just wanted you to know that and how much I do care about you".

The pair's encounter followed a slighty awkward apperance on ITV's Love Island: Aftersun, where Caroline reveals that she saw Wes in Ibiza - with him then admitting his holiday was "good, a bit messy", and then reveals Caroline was in the same boat.

Maura says: "I don't know what that man [Tommy] is thinking. Lucie is too good for Love Island".
