...and its from Ofcom.
Islanders, Ofcom has confirmed that it will not be investigating the treatment of Love Island contestant Dani Dyer #itsallpartoftheshow #itsallpartofthefun
In my last post about explicit ads airing during Love Island, I also mentioned that Ofcom had received 650 complaints in less than 24 hours following an episode (aired on 1 July) in which Dani Dyer was shown "misleading" videos about her boyfriend in another villa. The clips caused her to get very upset and question his loyalty to her.
In the end, Ofcom received over 2,600 complaints. Who knew the British public were so caring?!
Despite the number of complaints, Ofcom has decided not to investigate saying that the show did not breach its rules.
A spokesperson said:
“We carefully considered viewers’ concerns about the wellbeing of a female contestant on this established reality programme.
“While we understand her distress made for upsetting viewing, we consider that viewers are likely to expect emotionally charged scenes that have been engineered to test contestants’ relationships.”
Well, it is a reality TV show after all!
Love Island will not be investigated by Ofcom following 2,600 complaints made after Dani Dyer was shown a clip of boyfriend Jack Fincham in Casa Amor.
