Fans condemn Love Island for diversity problem


Love Island fans have slammed the show for having “no body diversity,” and not representing the LGBT community – as host Caroline Flack hints that there could be a same-sex romance in the next season. Season four of the show kicked off last night – complete with fake tan slathered bodies and an abundance of synthetic eyelashes – as eleven singletons entered the revamped Majorcan villa. All of them were slim and athletic. Gerry Stergiopoulos, an author and former Big Brother contestant, lashed out at the show’s choice of islanders on Twitter saying that the plus size girls and boys with tummies will look at this and think that love is not for them. One Twitter user wrote: “I wish #LoveIsland would represent more body shapes & people of the LGBT community. Instead I feel like I’m being force fed hetero-norms.” Another fan said that Love Island is “so so good”, but that there is “no body diversity and I just hope that not every girl/guy watching is feeling insecure.”
