Having spent one-on-one time with Joe in the Mallorcan villa, Sherif defended the islander as a ‘good guy’ who is ‘funny and lighthearted’.

He elaborated: ‘I don’t think it comes from a bad place with Joe. He’s a good guy, he’s funny and very lighthearted. The only thing I’ve not seen him be lighthearted about is Lucie.’  

Viewers were outraged when Joe dictated to a sobbing Lucie that she had to focus her efforts on making friends with the girls, despite Amy Hart being nasty to her.

Joe also demanded Lucie spent less time with the boys, meaning Tommy whom he had pointed out Lucie had grown ‘very very close to’.

He said: ‘You’re very very close to all the boys individually, but now I think it’s time maybe to get close with the girls.’

In response, the blonde surfer was left in tears after feeling the pressure from her summer soulmate to spend more time with the girls.

Boss of domestic abuse charity said ‘controlling behaviour is never acceptable’ 

Adina Claire from domestic abuse charity Women’s Aid warned ‘abusive relationships often start off with subtle signs of control’ as fans lodged 302 complaints. 

Ms Claire said: ‘Controlling behaviour is never acceptable. With Love Island viewers complaining about Joe’s possessive behaviour towards Lucie, more people are becoming aware of this and want to challenge it.’
