Love Island fans demand George is kicked off the show before it even starts after vile Tweets are revealed


WITH just days to go before Love Island begins, one of the new singletons has been branded “controlling” and a “cheat” by his ex.

And if that’s not bad enough for George Fensom, a string of his homophobic tweets have resurfaced online.

Fans are demanding that George Fensom get the boot from Love Island after vile Tweets resurfaced

New Love Islander George Fensom has been slammed by his partner Ebony Doherty in a Twitter video.And his ex also labelled him ‘controlling’ and a ‘cheat’ online

Viewers rounded on ITV, urging them to reconsider casting the 24-year-old business exec from Bedford.

It comes after the channel was forced to bring in care measures for its Islanders this year after both the boys and girls were accused of gaslighting and coercive behaviour in past series.

Fans yesterday reacted to George’s tweets, posted in 2014, the contents of which I have chosen not to repeat.

A viewer wrote: “It’s clear ITV are full of s**t when it comes to safeguarding & duty of care, they’ve cast a guy called George on Love Island who is V problematic re misogyny and homophobia.”

A second raged: “@LoveIsland get rid of George!! @ITV why do you REPEATEDLY cast people who are publicly problematic?”

George took the chance to defend himself yesterday ahead of the new series launch on Monday.

He told HOAR: “I feel sick about those tweets. They are not who I am today and if I could turn back time I wouldn’t even have put those.”

The account is now deleted, but the contents have been widely circulated since George was announced as part of the 2023 cast.

Separately, an older video from his ex-girlfriend went viral on TikTok.

After they broke up last year, she shared photos of their time together, labelling him a cheat and a narcissist and wrote that he was “controlling over what she wore” and “constantly lied and made empty promises”.

Quizzed by HOAR on her claims, George said: “That isn’t an accusation that reflects me at all and I feel quite upset about that.”

Asked why the girl made the claims, George added: “I didn’t wish to continue with the relationship . . . but I suppose she wasn’t happy with the outcome.

But I’m not this person. I’m a nice, funny guy with terrible dad jokes.”

No one seems to be laughing now.

BEAR GRYLLS has branded himself the “greatest TV flop in history”.

He reckons he has earned the title because so many of his shows have been axed.

Bear explains: “I wrote out the number of shows we’ve had, like Get Out Alive, that have been one-season disasters.

“It was something like 32 shows that have been canned before they’ve hardly started airing.

“Technically, on paper, I’m the greatest TV flop in history.

“Nobody in the history of TV has had more shows that they own that have been cancelled than me.”

Bear is in the new series of BBC One’s Who Do You Think You Are? later this month.

Hope that’s not the death knell for that show.
