'This food challenge needs to be banished'

Love Island 2021 viewers were left disgusted following Monday night’s food spitting challenge.

The ITV2 dating show often tasks the sexy singletons to a series of light-hearted games.

However, some fans went as far as labelling it “viewer abuse” after the show aired the challenge earlier this week.

What happened on Love Island 2021?

The challenge dubbed ‘Spit the Roast’ saw the Islanders transfer food and liquid to each other.

While the task appeared to be simple, they could only move the items using their mouths.

The game began after Millie received a text which read: “Islanders. Get ready to make a meal of it in today’s couple’s challenge Spit the Roast. #meatandtwoveg #itsallgravy.”

The aim of the game was to do it in record time.

But things turned messy after Jake started a food fight with the boys.

Later on, Liam and Millie were crowned the winners of the challenge.

How did viewers react?

However, viewers were far from impressed with the “revolting” game.

Fans flocked to Twitter to complain over the Love Island challenge.

One said: “To the producers of #LoveIsland: please, for the love of GOD HIMSELF, please stop doing the food challenges. I CANNOT watch food being birdied mouth to mouth one more time. I CANNOT.”

There is nothing I hate more than this food challenge

A second wrote: “That food challenge has singlehandedly made me want to cease to exist #disgusting #vomit.”

In addition, a third added: “There is nothing I hate more than this food challenge.”

Meanwhile, others threatened to contact Ofcom.

A third ranted: “This food challenge needs to be banished, I’m calling Ofcom #LoveIsland.”

Plus, one believed the game wasn’t Covid-friendly.

They raged: “That food challenge was disgusting. Please don’t ever do that again. Spitting? Eww. Spitting food in each other mouths?

“Double eww! Plus we literally still have COVID. Both the men and women looked horrified having to do it too.”

ED! has contacted Ofcom for further comment.
