Furious Love Island fans bombard Ofcom with complaints over Michael and Amber

Furious Love Island viewers have bombarded Ofcom with complaints over last night's episode after the villa went into meltdown over Michael Griffiths and Amber Gill's split.

The firefighter dumped the Geordie lass for new girl Joanna, and the former lovers were seen in an epic showdown.

Many viewers accused Michael of gaslighting Amber by twisting the truth about their romance and making her out to be the villain.

Fans of the show flocked to the broadcasting watchdog to complain about the episode, with 196 being recorded along with another 36 complaints about Tuesday's episode.

An Ofcom spokesperson told Mirror Online: “We will assess these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate.”

As well as the showdown between Michael and Amber, there were also worrying moments for Amy Hart after Curtis Pritchard confessed his head had been turned by Jourdan.

The air stewardess was seen sobbing and declaring she "has no future" after the romance hit the rocks.

Many viewers begged producers to get Amy help as she looked so distraught.

A spokesperson for the show has since told us that welfare producers and psychological support is available at all times to contestants.

They told the Mirror: "We take the emotional well-being of all the Islanders extremely seriously. 

"We have dedicated welfare producers and psychological support on hand at all times who monitor and regularly speak to all of the Islanders in private and off camera, especially if someone appears to be upset.

"All the Islanders are therefore fully supported by the professionals on site and by their friends in the villa.

"This means Islanders are always able to reach out and talk to someone if they feel the need.

"We will of course continue to monitor all of our Islanders in line with our robust protocols.

"Love Island holds a mirror up to relationships and all the different dynamics that go with them."

Love Island airs all week at 9pm on ITV2.
