Love Island bosses ‘forced to confront contestants over backbiting and bullying’

Love Island bosses have been left with no choice but to enter the villa and speak to this year's contestants over their bullying behaviour, sources close to the show have claimed.

The 2019 series has seen its fair show of explosive rows in the last month. This week viewers branded Amber Gill and Anna Vikalli 'toxic mean girls' over their treatment of Danny Williams and Arabella Chi, who survived being dumped from the show.

But according to an insider, bosses have told the islanders to reign in their bad attitudes to avoid any more drama.

A source told The Sun: "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," they added.

An ITV spokesman said: “We speak to all of the islanders to remind them of what we condone to be acceptable behaviour during their time on the show.”

Earlier this week battle lines were drawn as Amber and Anna reacted very strongly to their pal Yewande Biala being sent home by her former patner Danny.

Amber furiously told Danny his word meant 'f*** all' while Anna repeated: "Bye, bye, bye," when he attempted to make peace with them.

Stunned viewers flocked to Twitter to comment on their "childish" ways.

One tweeted: "Never seen more immature behaviour than from these girls… ‍ pathetic."

While another said: "Amber, Amy and Anna are toxic , f*** them #loveisland."

Even Dancing on Ice winner James Jordan got involved, tweeting: "I will say it again….. A LOT OF MEAN GIRLS IN THE VILLA THIS YEAR!"

Tensions are sure to boil over again tonight with a surprise double dumping.

The islanders are unaware that the public have been voting to save their favourite couple.
