Love Island gets over 1,600 Ofcom complaints in just one week from fans furious over Faye's cruel rant

LOVE Island received more than 1,600 Ofcom complaints in just one week from fans furious over Faye's cruel rant.

The controversial Islander had already sparked over 25,000 formal alerts to the TV watchdog with her previous outburst at Teddy.


But last week she was seen lashing out at co-star Jake, before roasting all of the Islanders in her talent show performance.

In figures released today, Ofcom confirmed that there were 1,611 complaints for the episode that aired on Tuesday 17 August "related to the behaviour of a contestant".

This episode kicked off with Faye unleashing her wrath on the villa for voting her and Teddy as one of the least compatible couples.

While she lashed out at everybody who voted for her, Jake bared the brunt – with the 26-year-old estate agent fuming at one point: "You can stop smirking because you’re p***ing me off with your smirk.

"You’ve been talking s*** the whole time."

Later in the show, Faye's talent show entry was making digs at her co-stars, which she kickstarted by saying: "If anyone's offended please get up and leave now!"

Targeting Tyler for returning to Casa Amor with new girl Clarisse before ultimately deciding he wanted to stay with Kaz, Faye said: "You want to play the field a little bit, don't you? You don't just want to go out with our girl Kaz.

"You want to go here, and you want to go there – you don't want to make her your girlfriend, but you want to make it exclusive. Is exclusive even a thing?!"

Turning her attention to Jake and his copycat girlfriend proposal to Liberty, she said of the bracelets: "I mean, Love Island has never seen that before, ever! Not once has it been done before… And got really good votes!"

She also targeted Toby, and Love Island fans were divided at the time, with one tweeting: "None of what Faye said was a joke. She was just ranting with a smile."

Earlier this month, Faye triggered the most Ofcom complaints in Love Island history when she berated, mocked, and screamed at Teddy after Movie Night.

He was left in tears after she went on the rampage, with horrified fans calling for her to be removed from the villa.
