Love Island: Hugo leaves fans ‘heartbroken’ as they ‘complain to Ofcom’ over challenge

The teacher wasn't chosen in the Line of Booty challenge

Love Island viewers were left ‘heartbroken’ as Hugo was brutally snubbed in the Line of Booty challenge.

The lovable teacher is yet to find love on the ITV2 dating series, despite being a firm favourite with fans.

And viewers were fuming after the Islanders chose not to kiss Hugo during last night’s game (July 9).

What happened to Hugo?

On Thursday, viewers watched on as the Islanders took part in the show’s Line of Booty game.

The Love Island challenge involved the girls dressing up as police officers, before choosing a boy to interrogate.

Despite being coupled up with Hugo, Chloe shared her first snog with Toby.

A fourth tweeted: “Should complain to Ofcom for showing Hugo standing there in that challenge unpicked. My heart.”

A fifth shared: “I’m calling Ofcom why did they do that to Hugo? #LoveIsland.”

Meanwhile, the challenge follows shortly after viewers defended Hugo.

On Wednesday, Faye labelled the teacher “cringey” ahead of his dates with the new bombshells.

She said: “Hugo’s got to make out that he’s not cringey.”

However, one viewer hit back: “Faye is actually a proper nasty piece of work, saying Hugo is going have to make out like he’s not cringey on his date. You’re the most cringe in there love. Get her out.”

ED has contacted Ofcom for further comment.
