LOVE Island sparked an avalanche of complaints to Ofcom last night as viewers objected to one of the headlines in the News Splash task.
A staggering 377 people contacted the telly watchdog over the story "Casa Amor cause Callum, Finn and Nas' heads to turn on tonight's Love Island" – saying it just wasn't true.
Ofcom explained that most of the complaints were people saying the headline about Finn was false, while others said so-called 'fake news' had been used by producers to stoke up drama.
The story sparked instant outrage from Paige Turley, depite her boyfriend Finn Tapp protesting: "The girls can say what I was like."
Referring to the radio station showbiz site it was from, she replied: "The paper tells me different, Heart tells me different."
He insisted: "The girls were there" but the 22-year-old singer replied: "There was a million cameras and f***ing mics in there. People were watching."
Speaking later in the Beach Hut, she added: "It's no secret I'm not the most trusting so this just feels a bit like betrayal."
She was then seen shaking her head at 20-year-old Finn, setting up an argument about the headline that will rumble on in the show tonight.
Viewers didn't just complain to Ofcom, with many also venting about the task on Twitter.
One tweeted: "I’m sorry but that’s such bulls**t!! Finn’s head did not turn in Casa Amor and he slept outside because of his feelings for Paige?!!"
