Love Island viewers flocked to Ofcom to complain on Tuesday night as Faye Winter started yet another row in the villa.

The 26 year old sparked over 24,000 complaints to the broadcasting watchdog earlier this series when she let rip at partner Teddy Soares and their fellow Islander Jake Cornish following a challenge which saw clips from the series aired in the villa.

After calming down and patching things up with her co-stars, Tuesday's episode saw Faye erupt once again as she discovered Jake and his girlfriend Liberty Poole, and fellow couples Kaz Kamwi and Tyler Cruickshank and Millie Court and Liam Reardon had voted her and Teddy as the "least compatible" couple.

Faye stormed over to Jake, Liberty, Kaz and Tyler to confront them over their decision, later breaking down in tears when she spoke to Millie about the situation.

Viewers took to Twitter to share they were lodging further complaints about the lettings manager, with one writing: "What's Ofcom's number? I need Faye and her lapdog out of the villa. I'm sick and tired of this bullying."

A second penned: "complained to ofcom about faye lol i am actually raging lmao i want her off, and when she is off i don’t want her to get any brand deals or sponsorships."

Another said: "Made my Ofcom complaint about Faye, can’t believe how much she gets away with. The privilege of it all."


With a fourth adding: "This episode of love island defo bothered me! I had to [complain] seriously, Faye needs to get checked!"

A final viewer wrote: "Just made my first OFCOM complaint about Faye. Feels good!!!!"

It was just last week that Ofcom received almost 25,000 complaints following Faye and Teddy's explosive row – a record-breaking number for Love Island.

The British regulating service Ofcom confirmed that a whopping 24,763 people had complained about Faye's fiery outrage towards Teddy.

An Ofcom spokesperson said: "We've received a high volume of complaints about last week's Love Island, which is consistent with a trend of growing complaints about high-profile TV shows.

"We are carefully assessing the complaints we've received before deciding whether or not to investigate."

It was later claimed that show bosses threatened to remove Faye from the show if she didn't apologise to Teddy.

Speaking to MailOnline, a TV insider said: "Faye was ordered by producers to apologise to Teddy, and not only that but to grovel for forgiveness.

"They warned if she refused to back down her place on the show could be in doubt and as the latest arrivals have shown, there's always a new contestant waiting in the wings."
