Ofcom received 630 complaints after Love Island newbie Idris Virgo lied to Laura Anderson about Jack Fowler and Georgia Steele’s kiss.
In an attempt to lure her away from current partner Jack, he claimed he’d seen footage of the controversial smooch and that Jack had been the one to initiate it.
Not knowing that it was really Georgia who went in first, Laura was left feeling angry and upset, thinking that Jack had been telling pork pies.
And a spokesperson for the show confirmed the complaints came in thick and fast, with the organisation now in the process of assessing them.
“We are considering these complaints against our broadcasting rules, before deciding whether or not to investigate," a spokeswoman told Mirror Online.
And viewers aren’t the only ones fuming, with Laura’s sister Danielle admitting she’s ‘seething’.
"I have been absolutely raging. I just want producers to show the VAR and get it over with. We have all been screaming at the TV saying ‘oh Laura, Jack is telling the truth,’" she told The Sun.
Laura dumped Jack after Georgia claimed he was the one that went in for the kill on their date, admitting that after Wes Nelson left her for Megan Barton Hanson, she couldn’t hack another rejection.
And Danielle said she’s struggled to watch her sibling be put through the wringer as her confidence plummets.

“The hardest thing in the world for her was the break up with Wes and seeing him go for Megan. At the time I was so upset for her," she continued, accusing Megan of being the one in the wrong.
“Laura has suffered a knock to her confidence. It feels like it has been an emotional roller coaster for Laura."
The show also earned itself 650 complaints over the ‘cruel’ treatment of Dani Dyer, with fans outraged when she was shown a clip of boyfriend Jack Fincham in Casa Amor with his ex Ellie Jones.
