Love Island fans beg ITV to give Brad subtitles as they struggle with his Geordie accent

We're happy just looking at him!

Love Island fans are begging ITV to give hunk Brad subtitles.

The Geordie labourer has become one of the favourites within the villa, but mostly down to the way he looks.

That’s not his fault though, it’s just some viewers are having a tough time getting to know him.

Brad’s accent is so thick that fans are calling for ITV to add subtitles when he speaks so they can finally understand what he’s saying.

Brad on Love Island: Fans demand subtitles

After last night’s episode (June 29), viewers took to social media to share their frustrations.

One fan tweeted: “Brad is gonna have to curb his lingo and accent. No one who’s not from the North East gonna have a clue what he’s on about.”

“Brad’s accent is making me need subtitles,” said a second viewer.

A third fan said: “Jesus lord what is this man saying? I need google translate!”

It’s not only UK viewers that are having trouble, however.

Love Island is a huge hit worldwide, and some international viewers are finding it tough to follow series 7.

“Watching Love Island without subtitles is my version of getting a PhD in linguistics,” said an American viewer.

A Canadian fan tweeted: “Yo I tried watching Love Island (the UK one) last night and man I’m going to need subtitles for this because of the way I’m straining to understand the accents.”

“I started watching the UK Love Island… I need subtitles,” added an Australian fan
