Love Island producers have apparently stepped in to warn contestants about ‘bullying and bitchy behaviour’ after islanders rounded on Danny Williams over his treatment of Yewande Biala.
Amy Hart’s friction with Lucie Donlan earlier in the series is also said to have prompted the talking-to from bosses.
Producers entered the villa for a ‘briefing’ with the islanders in a bid to calm the ‘backbiting and bitching’.
The Sun quotes a source revealing: ‘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.’
Love Island told Metro.co.uk in a statement: ‘We speak to all of the islanders to remind them of what we condone to be acceptable behaviour during their time on the show.’
Amber Gill and Anna Vakili have already drawn nearly 200 complaints to Ofcom following their confrontation with Danny the night Yewande was voted out.
After insisting that his head wouldn’t be turned, Danny soon dumped the scientist for model Arabella Chi, but whether this new controversial coupling works out remains to be seen.
Amber told her partner Michael Griffiths that she could no longer trust Danny and the pair locked horns in a tense confrontation.
Ofcom has since confirmed that the ITV2 show could be under investigation for the scenes, telling Metro.co.uk they are ‘assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules’.
However some viewers have argued they were simply sticking up for their friend who they felt had been mistreated by Danny.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
