Well, well, well; what do we have here? A possible new flame? Give us the content we deserve.

Love Island fans are positive that Yewande Biala and George Rains are secretly dating after spotting flirty messages on each other's social media.

The pair have regularly been commenting regularly on each other's Instagram posts with suggestive replies, and we're gagging for the romance to blossom.

The 23-year-old Irish scientist posted a stunning picture of herself in a white skirt and black leggings, captioning the shot; "Where's your favourite place to go for brunch?"

22-year-old Essex builder George replied: "Whereever you are", even adding side-eye emoji. We all know what that means…

Yewande used the same emoji when she commented on a picture of George two days ago, posing next to a river in Cambridge. We see repetition, we see flirtatious banter, we see LOVE.

The pair never actually met on the show, as Yewande was dumped before the Casa Amor segment happened, which featured George. He later coupled up with Lucie but the pair never clicked.

Iain Stirling, the ITV show's commentator, made sure to make fun of George's silent demeanor and penchant for talking about snacks.

George has even left flame emojis underneath Yewande's photos, which sent fans into an absolute frenzy.

"Go for it," posted one Instagram fan. "Secure it period," added another."So are y'll dating orrrrr-." asked a third. ANSWER us, Yewande. We know you want to.

The Irish beauty had a rough time in the villa, coupling up with Danny Williams who later dumped her for Arabella Chi, who was dumped just two days later. He's now smitten with Jourdan Riane, but is it showmance? Probably. The point is: Yewande Biala deserves love.

The world and it's mother are in LOVE with the ITV reality show winners Greg O'Shea and Amber Gill, yet the producers of Love Island aren't convinced that they'll last as a couple.

In previous years, ITV have rushed to make spin-off shows about the pairings and finalists, with popularity sky high, but this year things appear to be different.

According to The Sun, the producers are holding back as they fear the Islanders will split before the show is aired.

The ITV bosses were embarrassed last year, when Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer's on-and-off relationship was hitting the rocks before their short-lived ITV2 series was broadcast.

Jack & Dani: Life After Love Island didn't get anywhere near the same amount of viewers, and the same thing happened in 2017.

Third-placed finalists Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood's series Chris & Olivia: Crackin' On, saw the pair have an explosive break-up at the end of the three-part show.

Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea were surprise winners of the £50,000 prize this year, after Greg had only been in the villa for 12 days.

They've only just confirmed vaguely that they're in an official relationship and still have a distance between them as Amber lives in Newcastle and Greg resides in Dublin.

Bosses don't feel it would be a wise choice to let cameras follow them around just yet.

A source said: “It’s been a publicity disaster in previous years, when couples split before their show aired or appeared to get back together just as the programmes came out."

The insider added; “Jack and Dani’s series was a perfect example last year, with everyone saying their relationship was fake.

“This year bosses want to take the heat off the contestants’ relationships, especially as it’s been such a choppy year for couples making a go of it. Instead they are focusing on winter Love Island and want to nail the casting for that series."

They continued; “Of course, they’re keeping a close eye on their couples to spot any potential for spin-off shows, but at the moment it’s certainly not looking likely.”

Most couples barely even make it to three months, and Greg and Amber have been predicted to last just 69 days by data analysts Watches2You.

An ex Love Island contestant has accused the show's bosses of "fixing" the series to Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague would beat Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea.

The Geordie beauty technician and Irish rugby player were crowned King and Queen of the villa, taking home the £50,000 cash prize last night.

Georgia Steel, from the 2018 series, has said the programme is rigged to give the producer's favourites, Molly and Tommy, more air time.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Sam Bird's ex-girlfriend said: "To be honest I think they are getting 50 per cent of the airtime, so I do think obviously they are going to win.

"It is a bit of a shame as the other guys aren't getting much airtime. I feel like it is the Molly and Tommy show," she added.

"Of course they are going to win as the audience are invested in them more than anyone else as they are seeing them more."

The friend of Dani Dyer went on to reveal that the editing process can make a massive difference, and that the bosses have an agenda with what they allow viewers to see.

Georgia continued: "The edit can change so much and I feel like the audience are kind of gathering that now.

"I want Ovie to win, I really like him and I think the way he has handled himself is so real, he hasn't been manipulated in any way."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@oviesoko) on

21-year-old Georgia believes contestants are chosen strategically by producers, as this year's Islanders who entered the villa already had a big influencer fan base or celebrity contacts.

"I feel like the people that have gone in this year are either influencers or in the field where they are hanging around with celebs already. I still hope they want to find love and not just for fame and money."

Molly-Mae and Tommy were tipped to win the show this year, but Amber and Greg took the crown and split the £25,000 prize with each other. They had only been coupled up for 12 days.

Amber had a wild journey in the villa, after being coupled up with villa villain Michael Griffiths before his head was turned by Joanna Chimonides while she was in Casa Amor, staying loyal.

She confessed that she still had feelings for Michael, even after he badmouthed her behind her back, and he turned her down twice before changing his mind.

Once Greg entered the villa, Amber coupled up with him and Michael was dumped from the show for being chaldish. He has since been spotted back with Joanna, and half-heartedly congratulated Amber on her win last night.

ITV is set to air two seasons per year of Love Island, as the broadcaster looks to tackle a five percent fall in total advertising revenue by adding a winter edition of the hit reality TV show.

From 2020, an additional series will air during the British winter, with the original summer series continuing to be filmed in Europe.

The first season of the winter show will be shot in South Africa, so a few safari challenges might not go amiss. Love Island remains to be the most watched programme of the year for adults aged 16 to 34 across any channel.

The show hit new heights in its fifth series this summer, and recently broke an astonishing six million viewer barrier for the first time, according to The Guardian.

ITV’s chief executive, Carolyn McCall, credited the show for saving their drop in advertising revenue;

“ITV delivered another good viewing performance in the first half of the year,” McCall said.

“Online revenues grew strongly, up 18 percent, despite tough comparatives, with Love Island providing a strong finish to the half. This was reflected in better than expected total advertising revenue.”

Currently the show enjoys over five million viewers watching per episode, and is commercial gold for the broadcaster. Uber Eats pays five million pounds alone to sponsor the show.

A dozen commercial partners were also involved in the 2018 series, spanning brand licensing, podcast sponsors, product placement, in-store branding and exclusive product lines and merchandise.

Paul Mortimer, head of digital channels at ITV, said; "Love Island has proven yet again to be the perfect format that engages younger audiences,”

“In response to this viewer appetite, a new batch of young singletons will deliver some highly anticipated post-Christmas romance and drama from our new and luxurious location.”

The Love Island Instagram account has over three million followers, with the show creating over two billion impressions on Twitter so far this year.

Love Island will be back in an all new location of South Africa in early 2020, with the first series of the year bringing the sun to audiences from a brand new villa.

Angela Jain, Managing Director ITV Studios Entertainment said; "2020 is going to have even more love than before."

Tonight's Love Island looks set to be one of the most explosive episodes yet, with Limerick lad Greg O'Shea requesting a date with Amber, and Chris and Ovie heading on dates with the two new girls of the villa.

India Reynolds and Harley Brash are the newbies who have their sights set on Ovie and Chris, but will other eyes wander towards them?

The Hideaway also opens it's doors for Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames tonight for the steamiest visit yet (though there have only been three).

Jordan blindfolds Anna and performs a striptease for her, as things get heated in the hot tub and bedroom.

The pair are chosen after Molly-Mae receives a text reading; 

“Islanders. The Hideaway is open tonight, please choose a lucky couple to spend the night alone. #getaroom #notsosilentnight”.

The contestants decide that it's time for Jordanna to get some time alone following their brief Casa Amor split.

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.

Ex-Islander Amy Hart has opened up about being forced to seek psychological help 12 times during her stint on Love Island following her break-up with Curtis Pritchard.

The air hostess walked out of the villa voluntarily last week and had to leave at least once to get help as she was in such an emotional distress.

She has now opened up about her heartbreak while on Love Island: Aftersun, revealing that she had to make use of the show's therapist on a dozen different occasions.

"I had therapy 12 times in the villa – but I've come out stronger," she told OK! magazine. "I deserve a man who loves me for who I am."

Amy had never had a boyfriend before meeting Curtis, and was destroyed following his decision to end things with her.

The shock move came after his head was turned by Jourdan Riane while Amy went to Casa Amor. Curtis also told her that he couldn't see a future with her on the outside, or marriage and kids.

The professional dancer decided to be brutally honest with the blonde bombshell, who sobbed in the Beach Hut and proclaimed that she couldn't stay and watch him crack on with other women.

Strictly Come Dancing professional and Curtis' brother AJ has claimed that Amy DM'ed him while speaking on talkRADIO.

"She spoke to me. She sent me a message actually afterwards and said she feels like she knows the family and she could only praise Curtis about being honest," he said.

AJ admitted that his brother was too ruthless while speaking to Amy about his feelings;

"Sometimes he was maybe a bit too brutally honest. He could have let her down a bit softer rather than saying, 'yes, I don't see myself marrying you and having kids with you'. "That was harsh, I'm not lying, it was harsh."

AJ and Curtis' mum Debi has also said that she'd like to meet the woman who had her heart broken by her son; "I would like to meet Amy. My heartache is there for Amy and for the parents," she said.

She continued; "When I watched the moment when Curtis told her how he felt, I couldn't stop crying because of all the emotion. I wanted to reach out and give Amy a hug.

"I was thinking of Amy’s mum a lot and I'm so happy Amy is with her family unit now because I know she will be fine and her and Curtis will be friends," she added,

Amy has a new look and seems better than ever, thank the Lord. She's 100 percent stronger after the experience, and we're proud that she speaks so openly about mental health.

Maura Higgins, Duchess of County Longford, shares her first kiss with Curtis Pritchard in tonight's episode of Love Island only hours after Amy Hart quit the show.

Curtis' 'half-girlfriend' Amy exited the villa of her own accord after an emotional farewell, still heartbroken at the end of her relationship with the professional dancer.

Maura has confessed her feelings to Curtis already, who told her he couldn't make any moves with Amy still feeling the pain of their break-up.

The Islanders are set a dance challenge tonight in order to get each others' hearts racing, and Maura makes sure she's got all the attention to see through her plan.

"I've got a bit of a plan up my sleeve. I just can't wait to get to Curtis," she admits in the Beach Hut. The contestants are each strapped up to heart monitors and are split into boys and girls.

The girls have to dance individually first, and Maura grabs Curtis for a kiss while the whole villa watches on. We LOVE the ridiculousness of this woman, but feel for Amy too.

Curtis is left without words after her confident display, and we'd say his heartrate skyrocketed. She's some woman, we'll give her that. The boys must then impress the girls with their sexy moves.

Seeing as Curtis is a professional dancer, he brings the heat to his routine and returns Maura's kiss after picking her up to sweep her off her feet.

We can FEEL how delighted those producers are. Earlier, Maura and Curtis were chosen by Chris and Francesca to go on a double date, but Maura was pretty distracted.

Maura flirts with Chris, but spends most of the date trying to see what Curtis and the new girl are up to.

"The poor lad is going to be talking to me and I'm just going to be earwigging. I want to hear the way Curtis is behaving!" she tells the Beach Hut camera about her date with Chris.

We can't see Curtis waiting to crack on with Maura, his respect for Amy wasn't exactly sky high when his head was turned by Jourdan after about 30 seconds. *Shade*

Ex-Love Island star Joe Garratt has sent the internet into a frenzy after teasing a return to the Spanish villa via his Instagram stories.

The star was coupled up with Lucie Donlan but was voted off the show last week alongside Elma Pazar, which cut their romance short and left Lucie single.

The sandwich seller headed back to the UK, but is on his way BACK to Majorca after sharing a mysterious Instagram photo.

Image: Instagram @josephgarratt

The photo shows an airport screen with the word 'Palma' alongside a palm tree and love heart emoji. It's definitely a hint if we've ever seen one. The second image showed him touching down in Palma de Mallorca.

His news comes just as Casa Amor is kicking off, with 12 new singletons set to join the show in a rival villa.

Joe previously revealed that he would wait for surfer chick Lucie on the outside, but she's partnered up with fellow single contestant Anton at the moment.

Image: Instagram @josephgarratt

After he was voted off by the public, he told The Sun; “I would love to get more time with Lucy in there. It is such an amazing experience and when you’re doing it with someone you care about its just perfect.

“I would never rule out the possibility of going back in. I met somebody who I fell for so I have already won that in that sense. I would love to go back in and see her."

He added: “I think that would be really nice and I think she would love that.”

Would Lucie be happy to see her former couple partner, who was besotted with her? Or is she moving on?

She caused a stir in the villa this week after saying "Never say never" to a future romance with Tommy. Molly-Mae has since asked for boundaries to be set on their friendship, which Lucie definitely isn't pleased about.

Lucie has often mentioned that she's hoping the surfer dude of her dreams will walk through the door, which doesn't sound positive for city boy Joe. Tune in tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media for updates.

Producers are clearly gagging to shake things up in the latest Love Island series, having already decided to send the girls into Casa Amor rather than the boys this year.

The rival villa will house a brand new group of boys and girls who are all looking to find love as much as the originals

Most of them won't survive past the limited time which the neighbouring villa is open for, but a lucky few may be chosen as a couple partner. They'll have to turn heads and tread on toes, however…

For those who don't get chosen after the few days, well…it is what it is.

We've decided to do a full scope on the newbies, for personal research reasons. There are definitely a few big personalities in the bunch, who do you think will be chosen?

The Boys

1. Stevie Bradley: age 21

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Stevie Bradley (@stevie_bradley1) on

The 21-year-old student from the Isle of Man describes himself as "a cheerful, happy, charming, funny bloke".

Rating himself as an 8 out of 10, he thinks his best feature is his blue eyes. Who is he interested in "cracking on" with? "Lucie would be my number one".

He's still open to dating some of the other ladies, however; "Arabella is beautiful, I couldn’t believe my eyes when she walked through the villa. Maura is also stunning."

Arabella was voted out last night, so that's out the window, but maybe Maura will go for him. Lucie's still single, will she take a shine to him over Joe Garratt?

2. Marvin Brooks: age 29

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@marvinbrooks) on

The personal trainer and ex-Royal Navy officer is from Bournemouth, and spells trouble for the Island with his divisive nature.

Harry Redknapp's personal trainer describes himself as "strongly opinionated and very competitive".

He added: "I speak my mind, but that can upset people sometimes. I am very quick to judge, and sometimes do that too quickly. I’m not very empathetic either."

Marvin, who rates himself an 8.7 out of 10,  said:

"Anna has definitely caught my eye but then recently Lucie has as I feel like she’s very similar to me in the sense that if she doesn’t want to hang around with a group she won’t force herself to do, which I’ve admired."

In terms of making friends with the boys, he's ruled out two already; "Danny might be a bit boring and Curtis irritates me," he said.

3. Dennon Lewis: age 22

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@dennon_lewis) on

The professional footballer from Watford describes himself as "very positive" and with "decent banter", but gets "annoyed with people that have bad hygiene".

Dennon is loving fiery villa resident Maura, and has his eye firmly set on her; "I do like how Maura is turning out to be. She’s really feisty and could be a handful."

On his relationship with fidelity he said: "I’ve cheated in the past but I was seeing someone exclusively, not technically in a relationship." Hmmm…

4. George Rains, 22

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @_georgerains on

The builder from Essex has a self-described "positive energy and mindset" and says: "I’m outgoing and I’m a good laugh. "

In terms of his looks, George said: "People compliment me on my jawline." Who has he got his eye on?

"Amber and Anna – Amber is my type, they are the sort of girls I’d go for looks-wise and Anna is really pretty and she’s got a nice body."

Asked whether he'd be down for breaking up a couple, George said: "If I see the girl I want and we have that connection, I’m going to go for it, I don’t have any loyalty to anyone in there at the moment."

5. Dan Rose: age 21

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@danroseloveisland) on

The bathroom salesman from Nuneaton sees himself as "a cheeky lad" with "the gift of the gab". He rates himself a 10 for looks, which is pretty flattering…

"I would say 10 but… I should be modest so I’ll say 9."

On which girl he's interested in, Dan said: "I do fancy Amber but I know she seems loved up with Michael. I’ll test the water with it though. Then I’ll probably go for Lucie and Maura."

He came out with that timeless line: "I’m not bothered about treading on any toes."

6. Ovie Soko: age 28

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@oviesoko) on

The Londoner is a pro basketball player and self-labelled "wildcard" in the competition; "I’m a competitor, it comes with my job, it’s built into my DNA."

On his skills as a practical type of lad, Ovie added: "I left home at 16 to chase my dreams as a basketball player and since then have lived in six different countries and come across different people and cultures."

He attended school with Alexandra Cane and mentioned his crush on Meghan Markle, but Ovie has his eye on Anna "from the beginning". Jordan's got competition.

The Girls

1. Lavena Back: age 23

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

A post shared by (@iam_l.v) on

The business developer from Crodon wants to sell some romance and describes herself as "a five times two out of ten." Apparently she's a mathematician too?

On her goal of finding love, Lavena admitted: "I’ve been on my own for four years so whoever I meet in there I will fall for."

Lavena has her eye on some of the guys, having had a big crush on Jack Fowler from last year's line-up:

"If I had my pick, I’d probably go for Michael but I feel like he's really coupled up. But Anton seems very funny so we would bounce off each other."

2. Nabila Bada, age 29

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Nabila Badda (@nabilabadda) on

The hostess from London has a desire to be "an Arabian Princess in the villa". She wants to find the Aladdin to her Jasmine.

She claims that she'll "get on well with the boys", but is targeting one guy in particular:

"I have got my eye on Anton. I think he is cheeky and I think he’s misunderstood by the girls in the villa."

In terms of her own appearance, Nabila said: "I like my eyes and I like the fact that I have hips, my hips are really shapely so I like my hourglass figure.

3. Joanna Chimonides, age 22

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@joannachimonides) on

The recruitment consultant from London as a major downfall heading in: "I’m far too honest and sometimes I should keep my mouth shut." Amber's twin, maybe?

Luckily for the gals, she's reveres loyalty:

"Girl code is simply being honest to a girl’s face. If a girl is coupled up with someone and you want to get to know that person, then girl code for me is explaining exactly how you’re feeling to the other girl – it’s honesty and face to face."

She is hoping it's Anton or a man who will "give their all in a relationship".

4. Belle Hassan: age 21

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@bellehassan) on

The Bromley make-up artist describes her greatest flaws; "I can be insecure at times I suppose and I am messy."

She's definitely confident about her looks, saying: "I would give myself a solid 8 or 9. I get a lot of compliments on my eyes and my boobs."

Belle said she has her eyes on Anton and Tom. Well, Tom's a goner so it's basically just Anton.

She's been mates with last year's winner Dani Dyer since childhood as her own father is The Football Factory actor Tamer Hassan, giving Belle a " link to the famous world". Sort of.

5. Jourdan Riane, age 24

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jourdan Riane (@jourdanriane) on

The Essex girl is a model and actress, and views herself as "impulsive, impatient and stubborn" but with "a bubbly personality".

On her connections to fame, the model said: "I did a double page spread for Elle last year, and I did Vogue Italia."

She'll get down to business to find her man:

"I’m going to have to tread on toes. Initially it gives me a knot in my stomach but I have to do what I have to do."

6. Maria Wild: age 22

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Maria Wild (@mariacarmelwild) on

The Cheltenham VIP host describes herself honestly as "clingy", saying: "I am emotional and I am loving."

She claims her best feature is her lips, Maria said: "I can be quite stubborn, I am an only child so I often expect to get my own way and I’m quite bossy."

She is scoping out Anton as a potential couple partner, but admits concerns: "Deep down, it is Anton but I just can’t stop thinking about when he went in and talked about having a wandering eye."

It's becoming increasingly obvious which couple are the most infatuated with one another on ITV's Love Island, but it was sealed with a kiss last night.

Curtis Pritchard and Tommy Fury's 'bromance' has been heating up for weeks, and the love is positively sizzling between them. The chemistry, the adoration, the connection; it's all there.

Forget Amy and Molly, they're history. Fans exploded on social media last night after witnessing their balcony bonding, and we have to agree…it's pretty darn cute. 

Hilariously, Molly assumed that Tommy and Curtis would be discussing herself and the boxer "doing bits" in bed, but the conversation was entirely a sharing of love between the two boys.

They've sworn to be best mates for life, and we can see them getting matching "It is what it is" tattoos any day now.

Viewers of the show are HERE for the smashing of toxic masculinity between the pair, and want the £50,000 cash prize to be handed over to #Turtis.

Amy and Molly have yet to notice that their men are wandering off with each other… 

TAKE ALL OF OUR MONEY:

We all know that they'd make it on the outside:

Tommy: "Bro."

Curtis: "Yeach bro?"

Tommy: "Love you so much bro, to the moon and back."

Curtis: "BRO."

Time for a gay rat wedding, we think…

The public are also arguing that Curtis and Tommy as a couple are more believable than Curtis and Amy, and they're not totally wrong:

In conclusion: In BRO we trust. Confiscate all of our finances and gift it to #Turtis as the greatest love bunnies of ALL TIME.

Love Island's Joe Garratt has been hidden in a 'safehouse' since he was voted off the show after severe viewer backlash to his relationship with Lucie Donlan.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old has been transferred to another location with two security guards and has been briefed about the online fury over his apparent 'possessive' behaviour towards Lucie.

"Joe has been in the safehouse since leaving the villa," an insider from the hit ITV reality show told the publication. Joe's friends and family have slammed the "unfair editing" of the show.

“There has been a backlash against him and as part of ITV’s new duty of care, they’re doing everything they can to help him deal with it when he comes out.”

Lucie was devastated after her coupling partner was voted off the island, along with Elma Pazar. The surfer spoke to cameras after his eviction, saying;

"I'm gutted. You could clearly see that me and Joe had feelings for each other. I don't know what I'll do without Joe. He's literally been my rock in here."

Joe promised to wait for the 21-year-old model/surfer outside of the Spanish villa. Joe's mum is said to be 'devastated' by the claims that her son is emotionally controlling Lucie.

The sandwich maker fell hard for the Cornish gal in the villa but was booted out, thanks to fellow islanders saying himself and Lucie weren't compatible.

Speaking to the Mail Online, Joe's mum said: "I know my son and he’s not like how he’s being portrayed."

Women's Aid charity expressed their concern over Joe's actions, and viewers branded his behaviour "abusive", after he told her that her male friendships were 'weird' and that he wanted her to bond with the girls instead.

His mum, Rachel, has denied the claims; "Both myself and his sister are his best friends. He doesn’t emotionally control anyone. What has been said in the newspapers today is just sheer rubbish, that is not my boy."

She continued: "I see him every day of the week and there’s no way he would make a girl cry. He’s a normal, loving 22-year-old lad."

She described his everyday life as a reason for his behaviour being different to what he was portrayed as on the show, which is a bit irrelevant? You can go to the gym and be emotionally controlling but alright…

"He’s got hundreds of friends, he goes to the gym every day. They all love him. He goes and plays rugby at the local club, they all love him.

"No friend he’s got, boy or girl, nor any of his ex-girlfriends have got a bad word to say about him," she added. "It’s a real shame this has happened."

The ITV2 show has received over 800 Ofcom complaints over Joe's relationship attitude toward Lucie. Women's Aid described Joe as having "possessive behaviour."

Donlan’s mum has also come out in support of her daughter's relationship with Joe. Speaking to the MailOnline, Celine said that her daughter is “very happy” on the show

Celine also praised ITV for the support they've been giving to both Lucie and the family.

"Lucie should stay on the show," she said.

"We've got no worries over her what so ever, she's very happy. The support given to her and us as a family by ITV has been amazing."

The sandwich seller is now holed up in a Majorcan hotel where he will remain in hiding before flying home to the UK. This is standard Love Island procedure for the reality stars.

ITV bosses brought in new standards of aftercare this year, so it's looking likely that they are protecting Joe from the online anger against him.

He was bombarded with furious messages online over his romance with Lucie, and was accused of being "abusive" for asking her to spend less time with her friend, Tommy Fury.

Lucie is now distraught, and appears to be on the verge of voluntarily leaving the show. Lucie isn't sure how she'll cope without her partner, and is shown in tears in a clip from tonight's episode.

Many fans were also left raging over Amy's treatment of Lucie, after spotting her pulling a face when Lucie was saved.
