Love Island received 557 complaints after Idris Virgo lied to Laura Anderson on last night’s episode
Idris was branded “sick” for telling Laura Jack had made a move on Georgia Harrison, when in fact the video footage showed it was her going in for the kiss.
As Laura has not seen the footage, she believed Idris and was left gutted to think Jack had lied to her about what had happened.
This afternoon a spokesperson for Ofcom confirmed they had received the high number of complaints and said they were assessing them.
It’s not the first time Love Island has been reported to Ofcom during this series, after 650 people got in touch with them after Dani was shown footage of Ellie Jones and Jack Fincham.

She said: “The hardest thing in the world for her was the break up with Wes and seeing him go for Megan. At the time I was so upset for her.

“Wes obviously felt he wanted to be with Megan more than Laura and there’s no problem with that but he could have gone about it a bit differently.
“He didn’t have to walk past her and sleep in the day bed with Megan the same night.
Megan was in the wrong – in my eyes she did do wrong.
