'Love Island' contestants Lucie Donlan and Yewande Biala are in a feud after Lucie accused Yewande of bullying her. Other stars from the 2019 series have stepped in.

On a Reddit thread, screenshots of an old interaction between Lucie and a fan were shared online (via MailOnline). The reality star was asked, "How do you feel about Yewande saying you're a horrible person?"

Lucie responded: "She's always bullied me."

She added: "I'm not bothered about her opinion... makes her look bad.

"Not sure where she said that though!"

Yewande saw the screenshots and shared her side of the story on Twitter, though she didn't mention Lucie by name.

She wrote: "You refused to call me by my name because it was too “hard to pronounce” now you wanna say I bullied you !! Bullied"

Amber Gill, who went on to win the 2019 edition of 'Love Island' and is good friends with Yewande, defended her bestie.

She tweeted: "Na when she said can I call you “Y” I said lol no you can’t can I just call you “her” you were peaceful in that exchange It was me with the vim"


In response to a fan's gif tweet, Amber replied: "Call me problematic. But if I see something false or that I don’t like I’m speaking regardless and if it’s about my friend I’m yelling idc."

Amy Hart, who was part of the original five 'Love Island' girls on the series too, added her say.

At one point she wrote: "I bit my tongue today, tomorrow may be different."

A separate tweet reads: "My final thought of the evening. This beautiful,respectful QUEEN has sat on this for almost two years. We haven’t spoken about it publicly because it was Yewande’s story to tell.I remember dates, times, locations of every conversation in that villa.There’s so much you don’t see x"



Lucie Donlan has since responded to the controversy and gave a statement to MailOnline.

She said: "These are really old comments dug up purely to incite a row between two females. In this day and age and with everything going on in the world, we should all be sticking together not attacking each other.

"I've been sent death threats which are incredibly scary as you can imagine.

"I said on the show I had trouble pronouncing Yewande's name, it's just what I'm like. And I asked if I could use a shortened abbreviated version of her name instead as a term of endearment – there's nothing sinister to it.

"I regret how just a few old comments sent 18 months ago has snowballed like this and got out of hand, and drummed up some needless negativity. Can we all just move on from this please?"
