We're all aware that Love Island isn't exactly the most transparent show on television.

Many of the scenes are orchestrated by the producers, and a number of ex-Islanders have expressed the view that they were treated like "performing monkeys" (Malin Andersson's words, not mine).

The latest mistakes made on last night's show have fuelled claims of the series being a total fix, as audiences spotted the same shop assistant who received Anton's number behind the bar at the club later on;

It's a pretty hilarious error on the part of the producers; they didn't even TRY to hide the poor extra. The woman with never-ending jobs is now the subject of a million internet memes, unluckily for her.

The girl didn't even attempt to disguise herself, which makes it even more entertaining;

The club and shop scenes were massively false, but we lapped it up all the same. Amber Gill's account even referred to it as "illuminati confirmed".

The response online to the mistake was instantly gas, with the public calling for the woman to be paid more for working multiple (made-up) jobs.

Does she ever get a chance to catch her breath? To sleep? To have time to herself? It doesn't seem like it, it's slave labour up in ITV2 studios.

 Viewers are also calling the latest plot twist a total fix, after forcing the Islanders to choose between saving Joanna or Michael from the island

Everyone's fairly positive that Michael will be saved purely so he can get back together with ex-flame Amber, who confessed that she still has feelings for Michael last night.

It was all very dramatic, but we all know that Amber is far too good for CHALDISH Michael Griffiths. He doesn't deserve her, end of discussion.

If you're the kind of person that can spot a typo a mile off, or seeing a grammar mistake makes your blood boil, then you're probably a bit of an introvert.

A recent study published in the journal Plos One found that certain personality types can become more aggravated when met with a grammatical error.

The study called If You’re House Is Still Available, Send Me an Email: Personality Influences Reactions to Written Errors in Email Messages (yep, it's a long one), saw 83 volunteers evaluate emails about an online advert for a new housemate.

The emails were split into three; either a well-written application, one with spelling errors, and one with grammar errors.

The results showed that both typos and 'grammos' had a negative impact on the application email and that introverts were more likely to judge typos more harshly than extroverts.

The authors of the study,Julie E. Boland and Robin Queen, said: "The primary contribution of the current study is the finding that personality traits influence our reactions to written errors.

"Although personality traits have been linked to variation in production, particularly the use of specific lexical items, this is the first study to show that the personality traits of listeners/readers have an effect on the overall assessment of variable language."
