Love Island star Jacques O’Neill’s mum has begged trolls to stop sending her nasty messages.
Janet Wright admitted she is ‘hurt’ by the horrible comments she has received, with her plea coming days after former contestant Remi Lambert said that Jacques ‘ruined’ his time in the villa.
Taking to Instagram, the mother of the rugby player wrote: ‘People sending nasty messages to me please can you stop, it does hurt. Thank you.’
Janet’s followers rallied around her following the concerning post and encouraged her to pay the keyboard warriors no mind.
‘Ignore the trolls!’ one wrote. ‘They troll because they don’t have lives and got nothing better to do.’
‘You don’t deserve this hate!’ another penned. ‘Your son is amazing as I’m sure you are too🤍ignore them all! you are beautiful.’
Another added: ‘Pay no attention to it Jan. you’ve absolutely nothing to worry about!’
Remi recently opened up on getting into several altercations with Gemma Owen’s ex-boyfriend Jacques, which weren’t shown to viewers.
Speaking alongside Afia Tonkmor on the Reality podcast with Will Njobvu, Remi reflected on why he felt a bit ‘deflated’ by his experience.
He told the pair: ‘There was a lot of stuff that wasn’t aired, lots of stuff that went on.’
Remi continued: ‘Basically, me and Jacques got into quite a lot of arguments, it made my experience s**t, it ruined it for me.
‘People were saying it was because he has a rugby persona, but you can’t treat anyone like that.’
When asked what happened, the 22-year-old model shared: ‘He was just trying to get on to me, being like “My name’s Remi, I’m hard, I’m from Manny [Manchester]”.
‘It was constant, it was so jarring, but I was the only one to stick up for myself, he would always do that to people.
‘I’d tell him to shut up. We just got into a lot of fights.’
Remi’s admission comes after he posted a story on his Instagram saying he and Jacques faced issues in the villa.
Love Island airs tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
