It’s all kicking OFF
Welcome to The Tab’s daily Love Island 2020 gossip round-up, bringing you the pettiest drama and the least believable tabloid exclusives from around the web today.
Love Island has received 272 Ofcom complaints already
Ofcom received a huge 272 complaints about the first episode of Love Island, according to the Sun. The complaints were reportedly accusing Siannise Fudge of racism after she compared her partner Nas Majeed to Aladdin. There were also complaints that Ollie Williams was still allowed in the villa. Fans had previously called for him to be removed from the show after pictures of him hunting animals emerged.
An Ofcom spokesperson said: “We’ve had 272 complaints about Love Island. 36 of these are about Nas being referred to as Aladdin. 231 are about the inclusion of Ollie as a contestant. We are assessing the complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate.”
Ollie got catfished by a 50-year-old man
You know, karma really is a bitch. And it looks as though Ollie got his karma a while ago, because he’s shared a story of him getting catfished by a 50-year-old man. When describing his dating history, Ollie said he was once ready to go on a Tinder with a “10 out of 10 girl” but when he arrived, he got a bit of a surprise.
He said: “I arrived at the location we had agreed to meet and messaged her to let her know I was there. A 50-year-old bloke gets up from the bus stop and walks over to the driver’s door of my car. He said, ‘Is it Ollie? My name is Christina, I know I’m not what you were expecting but do you still fancy going for that drink?'”
Maura has said Curtis didn’t cheat on her
Over the weekend, Curtis from Love Island last year was accused of cheating on Maura. He was allegedly filmed in a club on New Year’s Eve in a “passionate clinch” which another woman.
Curtis has said it’s all “nonsense” and on Aftersun last night Maura said the secret to having a successful relationship after the villa is: “Don’t believe everything you read in the papers, that’s a bit obvious. If you believe everything you read in the papers, you’re going to let that affect one another.” It looks as though Maura and Curtis are doing just fine. Phew.
A new bombshell has been leaked!!!!
PSA: The next bombshell entry to the villa has reportedly been leaked! According to the Mirror, student Aaron Borland has told pals he’s been lined up to enter the villa and flew to South Africa.
A source said: “He’s flown to South Africa and he told group of people he is going on Love Island. They’ve been talking about it. It’s no surprise they’ve picked Aaron as everyone around uni knows him as a super good-looking guy.”
Aaron is a rugby player from Bedfordshire and currently studies at Loughborough University. If he really is a bombshell, he’ll be skipping lectures to be on the show. But come on, think of the MONEY.
Mike is already a meme king
Last night, when he was pulled for a chat by the twins, Mike said “and I oop”. Which obviously means this is it now, he’s the villa meme king.

In an Instagram story posted on Sunday, Stevie said: “I’m sorry but I’m going through a very hard time and having to get over someone I spoke to last week – nobody can understand how I feel like really. I just want to set it straight that I know that we’re over and it’s done.
“I love Connor even after all this – and to watch him be with another girl makes me SICK. It’s not even hit me that it’s real, I wish it wasn’t but it is and I feel like I need to share this. I found out in the most awful way, my friend woke me up crying saying I’m so sorry and do you know what? I’m fucking sorry. I never wanted Connor to look bad because he’s not but I can’t get my head around him seeing me. I spoke to him last week, why couldn’t he just tell me and say I can’t change his mind?”
