A rep for Ofcom confirmed the “complaints in our Audience Complaints report today relate to the treatment of Ekin-Su”.

It comes after Jacques branded Ekin-Su a “[bleeping] headache”.

ITV viewers felt as though Ekin-Su was being treated unfairly by some of the boys in the villa.

Jacques sparked the argument with Ekin-Su when he told her that Jay has “coupled up with you and he’s found out what you are in two days mate, a [bleeping] headache”.

None of the girls defended Ekin-Su during the incident, which happened last week.

This then led to some viewers accusing the boys in the villa of “bullying” her.

Love Island on Twitter

Plenty of viewers took to Twitter last week to complain about Jacques treatment of Ekin-Su.

“Ekin Su is getting bullied in that villa and nothing is being done,” one viewer tweeted.

“Anyone else feels like Ekin-Su is blatantly being bullied? Like yeah she went about things the wrong way with Jay but she risked a lot? And everyone was happy because she brought entertainment?” another wrote.

“Jaques is so nasty to Ekin-Su. They fully bully her why haven’t the producers stepped in yet??” a third said.
