Kelle Bryan has hit out at Love Island bosses for ‘contrived’ drama in the villa.
The Loose Women presenter has weighed in on goings-on in Majorca after a tense conversation between Millie Court and Lillie Haynes when the latter revealed what really went on with Liam Reardon in Casa Amor.
While Coleen Nolan and Charlene White thought the scenes were important for people to see, Kelle branded the situation ‘distasteful’.
She argued: ‘Whose situations are contrived. We don’t, in reality, meet someone like that and have those situations happen in the way that they have. They are constructed situations.
‘I’ve been on Love Island myself, so obviously the purpose of going on the island is to meet somebody you feel like you connect with and have a relationship with. And those situations – like when you’re a reality TV show, they are contrived.
‘That person was brought back to see that person’s reaction. Now, thankfully I think those ladies handled that situation particularly well, but I find it distasteful. I don’t like watching that kind of stuff happen.’

Kelle appeared on the early version of the reality show in 2006 – long before its 2015 relaunch – but Jane Moore was quick to disagree with her assessment as she insisted moments like this are the ‘point of the show’.
‘Actually, I love it, because I watch it with my youngest,’ she interjected. ‘So, you might say “OK, it’s contrived that the boy is taken out of that villa and put into that villa”.
‘But actually, in real life, it shows that unless he’s glued to that girl 24/7, when he goes out to a club or somewhere with his mates, there’s every danger he’s gonna meet somebody else and have his head turned.
‘It’s about his character. You put Teddy in that same “contrived situation” as you call it, and his character was good!’
Before dumping Liam, heartbroken Millie gathered the female contestants together to pass on what she had learnt during her conversation, saying: ‘He just lied – he played it down obviously.’
‘I don’t deserve this,’ she continued in the Beach Hut. ‘I wouldn’t let this happen in the outside world, why would I let it happen in here?’
