Love Island fans were left fuming after tonight's episode (June 19) after the islanders were given the power to decide who goes home.

The islanders were overjoyed when it was announced they were heading to a beach club to enjoy a party, but things quickly went south when host Laura Whitmore turned up and informed them that "that party is over."

The presenter, 37, revealed that the girls at risk being dumped from the island were Danica and Summer, while Billy and Dami were the two boys with the lowest votes.

Immediately after the news was announced, viewers took to Twitter to fume over the decision not being in the hands of the public once again.

"Why can’t the public actually decide who’s going home for once ffs #Loveisland," fumed one.

A second stated: "The show wants the public to feel like they're involved, but in reality the public will never make a difference That's how they reel you in and keep the views count.. #Loveisland."

"Producers must think we are a joke. You can't call it a public vote and then give the decision back to the islanders. Show is boring now," claimed another.

Dami's position in the bottom two may not come as a surprise as the microbiologist is well and truly in the public's bad books at the moment.

The 26-year-old came under fire for his treatment of Summer after he branded her fake and also the way he behaved towards Tasha in last night's episode.

His actions alongside other boys in the villa have sparked concern amongst Women's Aid who are now in talks with Love Island bosses over the "misogynistic and controlling behaviour" that has been displayed.

Teresa Parker, head of communications and media relations at Women’s Aid, said in a statement: "At Women's Aid we are being tagged into a stream of Twitter posts, with viewers of Love Island highlighting the misogyny and controlling behaviour being shown on screen."

The statement continued: "We are talking to ITV, and they have shared with us information on their inclusion training, but what appears to be missing is specific information on abusive relationships and an understanding of controlling behaviour in relationships."

Teresa went on to say that it is "vital" that producers know when to intervene and challenge "unacceptable behaviour."

The statement concluded: "Thank you to viewers who are raising concerns with us, and be assured that we are listening and speaking to the team at Love Island about the issues raised."
