Shaughna devastated after Callum returns from Casa Amor with new girl Molly

Love Island has received fresh Ofcom complaints after the latest episode showed a brutal recoupling session that saw contestant Callum Jones dump Shaughna Phillips for new islander Molly Smith.

Metro reports that 35 complaints were sent to the broadcasting regulator over the episode that aired on Wednesday 5 February, and a further 65 the following evening.

Fans seem to be concerned that the situation echoes what happened to Amy Hart in 2019’s series, where she was emotionally devastated after being dumped by boyfriend Curtis Pritchard.

Amy recently called the experience of Casa Amor “emotionally torturous”. The former contestant quit last year’s series of the ITV2 dating show after being dumped.

She later revealed that she had 12 therapy sessions while on the show and cited her mental health as a major factor in her decision to quit.

Love Island fans have also been criticising the other male contestants on this series after they approached Shaughna to tell her that Callum had got on well with Molly at Casa Amor.

Love Island continues on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2.
