After last night's episode (Wednesday June 5) five viewers complained to broadcasting body Ofcom.

Despite only being day three of the series, sandwich maker Joe became jealous after Lucie went on a date with Tommy.

He broke down in tears and demanded to know how the date went.

And, when she talked to him about their kiss, Joe panicked and thought she was talking about a kiss with Tommy.
