Love Island camera gaffes that 'prove' key moments set up by producers – from Gemma and Ekin-Su row to Jacques quitting | The Sun08/03/2022
LOVE Island has been slammed as "fake" by fans for years – and now it seems there may be some truth behind that.
Eagle-eyed viewers of the hit ITV2 show have spotted a few serious editing slip-ups this year, including a row between Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Gemma Owen.
Love Island producers still passionately deny any dark arts and saw the show “is a combination of reality and produced elements that are reflective of what’s happening in the villa".
But here are all the moments that didn’t just quite add up, and caused fans at home to hit rewind.
Just a week into the show, a clip of Gemma Owen and Luca Bish went viral on Tiktok after a very speedy outfit change mid-way through a loved-up chat on the sofa.
The snippet, which has 1.9 million views, shows Gemma change from wearing a glam beige dress paired with gold strappy heels in one shot, to sporting a pair of beige trousers and heels unexpectedly in the next.

Luca experiences a similar phenomenon, after firstly appearing to be modelling black trainers and a bomber jacket, before quickly changing to a white T-shirt and Converse.
Fans were quick to react, commenting “I thought I was going mad” and “Someone’s getting fired for this”.
Indiyah Polack and Gemma aren’t the only two mixing up names this year… the producers have been too.
As the girls jumped into bed on their first night in Casa Amor, viewers were left confused at the names indicating which single bombshell they were sharing with.

Gemma shared with new boy Josh Le Grove but the names Danica Taylor and Deji Adeniyi flashed up on our screens at home.
It became clear that the four islanders were mixed up in an editing fail as the camera panned to their fellow islanders Danica and Deji , who were also wrongly labelled.
Four hot final head-turners were welcomed into the Love Island villa in the last week of the show, ruffling some feathers and testing connections.
However, it wasn’t the new contestants that got the public talking – It was Davide the "Italian Stallion".
Viewers noticed the same clip of winner Davide Sanclimenti, nervously laughing and glancing over to Ekin-Su, had been repeated by producers and missed in the final edit.
Comments flooded in on social media, with fans writing: “Okay but did anyone notice they used the same clip of Davide twice?" and “When you don’t have enough footage and put Davide on the loop”.
Dami's secret twin
One of the more memorable editing bloopers this year has to be when fan favourite Dami Hope appeared in two places at once, following a dramatic recoupling.
A wide angle shot showed Dami standing both round the firepit, with the rest of the boys, and also in the background of the same shot, walking to the kitchen alongside Indiyah.
Viewers were left baffled, wondering if anyone else was seeing double tweeting: “Anyone else notice this on #loveisland how is Dami in two places at once”.
Another joked: “Dami wants to be part of every gossip so he split himself into two”.
Producers forced row
Ekin-Su has, undeniably, captured the hearts of the nation this season.
However, she didn’t have the easiest start in the villa, criticised for starting drama and "stirring the pot".
Fans pointed out, upon reflection, that things may not have appeared as they seemed.
At the start of the series, Ekin-Su had a heated row with fellow finalist Gemma after Dami had attempted to "read Gemma's mind," eager to find out how she truly felt about fishmonger Luca.
But Ekin’s supporters are convinced an edit fail proves the argument between the two brunette beauties was fabricated by producers.
They reposted a clip of the moment where Ekin-Su leaves the controversial chat and appears to walk straight over to couple Paige Thorne and Jacques O’Neill, pointing out that something was not quite right.
One said: "The power of editing – Ekin Su didn’t go straight over! She was holding her bottle when she left yet wasn’t when she approached Paige and Jacques."
Reuse and recycle
After Jacques left the villa unexpectedly in a shock departure, producers scrambled and made a huge editing mistake as a result.
Viewers noticed that the cast had worn the same daywear across both episode 37 and 38, despite the show claiming a day had passed.
A Love Island detective wrote: "Has the Jacques situation prompted some strange editing?
"I noticed Tasha, Indiyah, Andrew and Dami are sporting the same swimwear they had on at breakfast on the daybed yesterday."
Fans were heartbroken when the "tomorrow night" segment on the show gave away the result of an intense dumping, despite producers leaving the show on a nail-biting cliff-hanger.
Jay Younger and Chyna Mills were in the bottom two with Dami and Summer Botwe.
