The new series of 'Love Island' hasn't even aired yet but already it has faced some backlash from viewers over its lack of body diversity on the show.

Essentially, once more, it's a group of really, really ridiculously good looking people (check out the lineup here), but 'Love Island' creative director Richard Cowles stands by that.

Speaking at a press event in Mallorca, he said: "First and foremost, it's an entertainment show and it's about people wanting to watch who you’ve got on screen falling in love with one another.

"Yes, we want to be as representative as possible but we also want them to be attracted to one another.

"Also, we’re not saying that everyone that's in there is how you’re supposed to look. We're saying here's a group of people that we want to watch for eight weeks, and we want to watch them fall in love. That’s not at the front of our mind, but we do want to be as diverse as possible."

ITV executive Angela Jain added, "What we’ve tried to do again is have a huge range of personalities, people, hoping there’s someone in there for everyone and a slice of British life.

"So hopefully lots of different types of people are represented."

What do you reckon? Are they right or should there be more diversity?

Catch 'Love Island' on Virgin Media Two this Monday 3rd June at 9pm.
