    Looking for love: Celebrities have slammed Love Island over a ‘lack of body diversity’ after the line-up for the 2019 series of the hit reality show was announced

    Richard Cowles defended claims that this year’s Love Island cast was lacking body diversity by suggesting that producers were only giving audiences what they wanted to watch.

    Speaking to the Radio Times he said:  ‘First and foremost, it’s an entertainment show and it’s about people wanting to watch who you’ve got on screen falling in love with one another,’ he said.

    ‘Yes, we want to be as representative as possible but we also want them to be attracted to one another.

    ‘Also, we’re not saying that everyone that’s in there is how you’re supposed to look. 

    ‘We’re saying here’s a group of people that we want to watch for eight weeks, and we want to watch them fall in love.  

    Speaking out: Carrie Hope Fletcher, West End actress and sister of McFly’s Tom Fletcher, criticised the bosses for implying that ‘fat = unlovable’

     

     

     

     

    Furious: Twitter users were unhappy about the statement and voiced their opinion on the social media platform  

    ‘That’s not at the front of our mind, but we do want to be as diverse as possible.’  

    The comments caused a backlash on Twitter after Mr Cowles’ was seen to be implying that anything other than the size ten and under Love Island type cast is not fanciable or attractive to others.

    ITV executive Angela Jain added to Mr Cowles comments telling the Radio Times: ‘What we’ve tried to do again is have a huge range of personalities, people, hoping there’s someone in there for everyone and a slice of British life.

    ‘So hopefully lots of different types of people are represented.’

    Contestants this year have a wide range of jobs and professions, offering some diversity to the show. 

     

     

     

     

     

    Responding: The debate was rife on Twitter as fans weighed in on the perceived lack of varied body types

    Earlier this week reality star Lucy Mecklenburgh and villa alumni Alexandra Cane and Malin Andersson took a swipe at the show over a perceived lack of varied body types among the new villa mates.

    Ex TOWIE star Lucy, 27, said: ‘Sorry to 2 b negative as so many are super excited about Love Island.

    ‘Just to be clear I’m not body shaming them for being this size/shape but why not mix it up a bit!! but y are all the girls size 6-8 & all the guys have a six pack?’

    Love Island 2018 contestant Alexandra, 27, also took to Twitter to comment on the new line-up, saying: ‘Where the curvy girls at?’

    Love Island 2016 contestant Malin Andersson, 26, also admitted to feeling blasé over this year’s line-up, writing: ‘And I thought they would have some diversity. Meh.’ 

    Love Island series five debuts on Monday night at 9pm on ITV2.
