Hit show ‘Love Island’ is once again stirring up controversy over its manipulation of the truth and treatment of a fan favourite on the show, Laura.
Last night’s episode saw one of the new boys who entered the villa, Idris, take Laura out on a date. Laura has had an on-again off-again with Jack, which is on shakey ground thanks to a kiss that may or may not have happened with Georgia (new footage for which makes the kiss look like more of a set-up than ever). It now may be off again thanks to Idris saying that it was Jack who initiated the kiss.
Fans were unimpressed with the show utilising Laura’s hurt feelings for the sake of creating drama with many threatening to complain to OfCom or even turn off the show altogether. Similar controversy was stirred when footage was shown to Dani of her boyfriend Jack looking shocked as his ex-girlfriend entered Casa Amor.
Sort this out. If jack & Laura flounder cos of that lying tool I will never NEVER watch #LoveIsland again. Jack did not lie. Georgia did and Laura needs to know that! ðŸ˜¡ðŸ˜¡ðŸ˜¡ðŸ˜¡ðŸ˜¡ðŸ˜¡ðŸ˜¡ðŸ˜¡

I’ve never complained about a tv show before but I think what there doing to try and make good tv is appalling as it’s all at a girls expense and shouldn’t be allowed given everything that’s been happening recently #sophiegradon

Considering the news that has just broken. You should SERIOUSLY take mental health into account now guys! Laura has been through enough emotional turmoil! This is Love Island, not Breakdown Island. Have some empathy & pick on someone new! Not cool!

I know ITV want to boost viewing figures, but this is a really underhand and despicable way to go about it. Sure we want to be entertained, but to let this bullshit with Georgia and Jack’s kiss drag on is disgraceful.
