Adina Claire, Acting Co-Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, said:
“Women’s Aid is becoming increasingly concerned about what appear to be unhealthy fledgling relationships being used as entertainment in Love Island. Most recently, the programme has shown Amber repeatedly reduced to tears and appearing to have her emotions manipulated.
We hope that producers are looking after the wellbeing of the contestants and will step in when any form of behaviour becomes abusive. We have been contacted by a number of viewers on social media throughout the series about behaviour they are worried about, involving several contestants, and would ask producers to always take this seriously, and consider the messages being sent to viewers and contestants on the show.”
