Love Island feuds that unfolded off-screen from steamy sex rows to violent late night bust ups and 'bullying' storms


THE Love Island villa has been the scene of some spectacular rows – but some of the islanders' fiercest feuds have unfolded after they've come home.

And with the new series set to launch on Monday, the new batch of contestants might be wise to learn a few lessons from their predecessors.

From cheating claims to bullying rows and even violent bust-ups, some stars went from fun in the sun to stormy feuds within hours of leaving the villa.

Here are the Love Island relationships and rivalries that went wrong very quickly.

'Bullying' storm

A row between 2019 stars Lucie Donlan and Yewande Biala blew up after Instagram posts were unearthed in which Lucie accused Yewande of bullying her.

Screenshots were shared on Reddit in which a fan asked Lucie: "How do you feel about Yewande saying you're a horrible person?"

Lucie replied: "She's always bullied me. I'm not bothered about her opinion… makes her look bad. Not sure where she said that though!"

After the exchange came to light, Yewande furiously clapped back at Lucie on Twitter.

"You refused to call me by my name because it was too 'hard to pronounce' now you wanna say I bullied you!!" Yewande wrote.

And 2019 series winner Amber Gill also jumped into the fray by publicly sticking up for Yewande.

"Na when she said can I call you 'Y' I said lol no you can’t, can I just call you 'her', you were peaceful in that exchange. It was me with the vim," Amber wrote.

Right loyal mess

Georgia Steel made it very clear that she valued loyalty, even using the word "loyal" 11 times in a single episode.

Which is why it came as a bit of a shock to fans of the show when her partner Sam Bird accused her of cheating after the end of the 2018 series where they met.

Sam claimed to have found X-rated messages sent to Georgia's ex-boyfriend, as well as a snap of them in bed together.

"Sam thinks I cheated because he went through my phone, read and took screen shots of banter I had between me and my best mate,” Georgia told her followers after the row.

"Telling your ex you want their d*** isn’t banter," Sam told The Sun.

He added: "I was so shocked she would do that to me. She’s been living a double life. I’ve never been cheated on before."

At the time, a spokesperson for Georgia said she had spent the night at her ex's, but she strongly denied cheating on Sam.

Too much fun in the sun

Georgia and Sam weren't the only couple to split over salacious sex claims.

Gabby Allen and Marcel Somerville had an even more explosive relationship meltdown in 2018.

The couple, who got together in the 2017 villa, hit the skids when it emerged Marcel had cheated – while on holiday with Gabby.

It only came out a couple of months after they returned, with Gabby saying she "felt sick" she'd had sex with Marcel just hours after he'd romped with another woman.

"I hope he had a shower in between," Gabby told new! magazine.

The plot thickened when Marcel accused Gabby of cheating with Towie star Dan Osborne, but she denied the claims.

Marcel even managed to cause uproar again when, on a reunion show, he described the demise of his relationship with Gabby as them "drifting apart" instead of adultery.

Gabby later found herself in hot water by having to defend her decision to jet off to Dubai with new fella Brandon Myers during the pandemic.

Towie tiff

Sometimes Islanders' rows even end up spilling into other reality shows.

That's what happened with series three's Chloe Crowhurst and her Towie ex Jon Clark.

Jon said Chloe hadn't dumped him before signing up to enter the villa, and described his shock after hearing she was in the line-up.

He also labelled her “fame hungry” and an “evil b****” – but Chloe hit back, saying they'd broken up long before she was cast on the show.

Incredibly, their bitter split didn't stop them getting back together when Chloe's time in the villa was over.

Their reconciliation came just five days after Jon dumped Towie co-star Lauren Pope for "not being good enough" for him.

But once again their relationship ran aground and the pair split for good in 2019.


One Love Island fallout was even said to have led to a physical fight in 2017.

Shocking pictures showed islander Rykard Jenkins bloodied while being kicked and punched during a vicious assault.

Rykard, who joined the villa in 2016, shockingly accused Kem Cetinay, who was on Love Island a year later, for the attack.

The violence broke out in 2017 at Kem's fashion launch party in a nightclub.

Pictures of the assault show Kem wasn't involved in the scrap, but Rykard used Twitter to accuse him and his mates of being behind the beating.

Kem's then-girlfriend Amber Davies could also be seen standing very close to the attack but she too wasn't involved.

"Just got off the phone to [Rykard]," Kem tweeted the next day. "We are friends just like we was before, what happened is disgusting. I was not involved myself.

"But I will make sure it's dealt with as it's not acceptable and I won't let things like that happen and ruin both me and Rykard's night."

Fiery exit

Sometimes, spats outside the villa are more about throwing shade than throwing punches.

Series 3 contestant Tyne-Lexy Clarson wasted no time ripping into some of her fellow castmates after she left the show.

She blasted fellow islander Jessica Shears as "not a nice person" after being dumped from the villa.

"I was the victim of it unfortunately in the villa," she said of Jessica.

“It was like typical b****iness between girls.

“But obviously I’m not like that at all, I’m used to having girly-girls around me that support each other."

Like Lucie, Tyne-Lexy also made allegations of bullying against Jessica as well as Olivia Attwood.

"When we were in the villa, Jess and Olivia were really horrible to me to the point where the executive producers were sent in to say to them stop bullying me basically because that’s what they were doing," Tyne-Lexy told OK.

"And several times I’d complained and said I wanna leave because I’m not here to be victimised."

After reading the accusation, Olivia's then-partner Chris Hughes asked Tyne-Lexy if she was "bantering" on Twitter, adding: "Stop accusing my girl of anything to stay relevant, grow up some years!"

Twitter tangle

Another unpleasant feud played out on Twitter when Olivia Buckland and partner Alex Bowen called a fellow islander "irrelevant".

Olivia and Alex, who married after hooking up on Love Island in 2016, featured in a teaser clip for a subsequent series in which they discussed who they'd kept in touch with from the show.

"I can't remember her name, she went out with Terry the first time…" Olivia says in the clip, referring to Malin Andersson.

"Oh that one, she's completely irrelevant to everyone's lives so I dunno who it is. Does it begin with M? Mary? Mary that was it," Alex replies.

The insult didn't go unnoticed by Malin, who tweeted: "If I'm that irrelevant why the hell am I on your mind… f***ing bullies."

Olivia said the mean comment was "a joke" made in a "fun silly interview".

But that didn't stop Malin liking a fan's tweet referring to when Alex slept with Zara Holland in the Love Island villa.
