Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Davide is saying that Ekin-Su is going from flower to flower hasn’t he been involved with the same amount girls? These double standards are a bit of a joke #LoveIsland," while another added: "I’m kind of tired of the villa making one-sided comments towards Ekin-Su. It’s starting to come off as bullying. I can understand Davide making comments but everyone else keep your mouth shut!!"

A third person wrote: "Ekin-Su hasn't actually done anything THAT bad to deserve the constant bullying from the others. They’re all playing a game inside that villa so idk why anyone thinks they have a moral high ground to stand on." One viewer even suggested getting in touch with Ofcom, writing: "Think it's time to make some Ofcom complaints about this bullying against Ekin Su. The girls and boys both treating her and speaking to her like [expletive] is not okay."

Thursday’s episode saw Jay call things off with Ekin-Su after suggesting that he wanted to get to know Paige, resulting in an argument between the pair as Ekin-Su felt like she had been led on. Jay explained: "I want to be honest with my feelings, I feel like because I moved so far with you, I didn’t explore getting to know Paige. It’s something I felt for a while, but we moved so fast."

After Ekin-Su accused him of being muggy by being dedicated to her until after the recoupling, saying: "It’s just hit me now what you’ve done. You knew at the coupling that I’d pick you… why did you open up to me, why would you tell me, 'If someone came in here my head wouldn’t be turned.'" 

Jacques defended Jay, telling Ekin-Su: "He coupled up with you then found out what you are in two days mate, a [expletive] headache."
