Tyla Carr has spoken out again after ITV bosses DENY Love Island is staged

Former Love Island star Tyla Carr has cleared up her claims that the show is STAGED after ITV bosses were forced to deny her recent comments.

Tyla originally suggested producers have more involvement in the day-to-day villa shenanigans than ITV would have you believe, with fellow 2017 contestant Marcel Somerville even backing her up and claiming some conversations are set up for the cameras.

But Tyler has now set the record straight once and for all.

Speaking in the new episode of heat magazine's weekly show #UnderTheDuvet, Tyla confessed that 'nothing's fake' and everything we see is 'true.'

Tyla revealed: "Nothing’s fake. It’s not fixed at all; it is true and everything that’s said comes from you. You’re not forced to say anything, but they have to reshoot scenes. If they don’t catch something properly you’re going to have to redo it.

"If someone goes and dumps someone you can’t just carry on if they don’t catch it; they’ve got to refilm it.

"Some scenes are reshot but at the end of the day it’s a TV show – you have to get certain bits. Also if I said different things to three different people, they can’t just shoot three different scenes. It gets all wishy-washy; they’ve got to catch it all in one scene. They’ll say ‘Tyla, can you go and talk to so-and-so and explain what you’ve said today."

This all comes after ITV denied the DRAMA around Tyla's comments, telling OK! Online: "It is absolutely untrue to suggest that Love Island is fake. The opinions they have and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves."

So there you have it.

Love Island 2018's sexiest men - a definitive ranking (SLIDER)

Adam Collard1 of 10

1. Adam Collard

Look, we hate ourselves a little bit for saying this but Adam Collard is hubba hubba hot - on the outside at least. Kendall-Rae Knight, Rosie Williamson, Zara McDermott and Darylle Sargeant can't all be wrong.

Alex Miller2 of 10

2. Alex Miller

Alex Miller, or Glasses Alex as he should be known, has a cheeky confidence we find veeeeery attractive. If only he'd gone for our villa favourite Laura Anderson instead of Megan Barton.

Josh Denzel3 of 10

3. Josh Denzel

Sure, Josh Denzel did Georgia Steel wrong - although we're not sure how much of her hurt we're buying, but Josh gives us undeniable...feelings. Sexy feelings.

Jack Fowler4 of 10

4. Jack Fowler

Jack Fowler is the sexiest Jack in the villa. We're not sure of his intentions towards Laura but he certainly did a wise thing when he decided to crack on with her.

Jack Fincham5 of 10

5. Jack Fincham

Jack Fincham is the second sexiest Jack in the villa. Sure, he's wonderful in many ways but he's not exactly a lightning bolt of sexiness. There's a reason his and Dani Dyer's relationship is so PG, that's all we're saying.

Frankie Foster6 of 10

6. Frankie Foster

Good hair, good teeth, mediocre chat, Frankie Foster is a solid mid-fielder in the list of sexiest Love Island men.

Sam Bird7 of 10

7. Sam Bird

We're starting to scrape the barrel here a bit. Sam Bird narrowly nudges it into seventh place. We hardly see anything of him on screen and we are 100% fine with that.

Charlie Brake8 of 10

8. Charlie Brake

Sorry, Charlie who? Charlie Brake only made it this high in the list because the others are so dreadful. Harsh? Maybe.

Wes Nelson9 of 10

9. Wes Nelson

We do NOT want to join the 'do bits' club with Wes Nelson, thank you very much. The way he treated Laura when Meg turned his head was very bad. Doing bits with Megs in the day bed literally hours later? It's a no from us.

Dr Alex George10 of 10

10. Dr Alex George

It is our strongly held belief that Dr Alex George is a sex vacuum. He's tried to make chemistry happen with Samira Mighty, Megan, Rosie, Ellie Brown, Charlie Williams and Grace Wardle. Has he got anywhere further than a lunge-and-kiss? He has not.

These are Love Island's biggest love rats EVER


Love Island's biggest love rats 2018 (slider)

Alex Bowen1 of 7

Alex Bowen

Zara Holland was stripped of her Miss Great Britain title after a romp with Alex Bowen within HOURS during the second series. But Alex pied her off pretty much immediately for Olivia Buckland. However, this rat might have redeemed himself, as he proposed to Olivia in 2017 and the pair are set to marry in 2018. Rat Rating: 6

Rykard Jenkins2 of 7

Rykard Jenkins

Rykard Jenkins - who had been cracking on with Rachel Fenton - had sex with Olivia Buckland in the bed next to Rachel while she slept. EWWW. The pair kept it a secret, until Caroline Flack broke the truth to Rachel about what happened between the sheets. But Rachel and Rykard stayed together for 18 months after the show ended. We're assuming they didn't share a bedroom with anyone else this time. Rat Rating: 8

Terry Walsh3 of 7

Terry Walsh

Tattooed Terry Walsh cracked on with newcomer Emma-Jane Woodham within HOURS of girlfriend Malin Andersson being booted out of the villa. The cheating pair then went on to have sex in front of the other contestants (which he'd already done with Malin). Sophie Gradon commented: "She was riding him like a bucking bronco." Apparently, Emma-Jane was the 502nd person Terry had slept with. Not that he's counting. Rat Rating: 9

Tyla Carr4 of 7

Tyla Carr

Tyla Carr sobbed when Jonny Mitchell gave up his place so that she could stay in the villa. She gave him an emotional goodbye and asked him to wait for her on the outside. It took exactly three days for her to forget all about him and hook up with Muggy Mike Thalassitis. The public were NOT impressed, and viewers voted the pair out a week before the final.Rat Rating: 7

Marcel Somerville5 of 7

Marcel Somerville

Things looked good for couple Marcel Somerville and Gabby Allen...until they left the villa. Nine months later, Marcel had sex with another girl while the pair were on holiday and Gabby was downstairs in the hotel gym. OUCH. Suffice to say, the couple are no more.Rat rating: 10

Adam Collard6 of 7

Adam Collard

What is a Love Island love rat list without Adam Collard? Although, technically, he's probably more of an oily snake. Within a month, Adam ditched three girls before moving onto the next (Kendall Rae-Knight, Rosie Williams and Zara McDermott). His regularly used line 'I'd be lying if I said I wasn't attracted to her, like' when new girls enter the villa, has become a meme in its own right. His unacceptable actions include dumping Rosie for Zara just hours after 'doing bits' in bed with her.Rat Rating: 8

Megan Barton Hanson7 of 7

Megan Barton Hanson

Muggy Megan Barton Hanson went straight for Wes Nelson hours after dumping Eyal Booker, despite the fact he was coupled up with her pal Laura Anderson. Within 24 hours, she was snogging him in bed (that's one fast rat). THEN Megan played about 20 guys against each other in Casa Amor before deciding to cheat on Wes with new boy Alex Miller. What will her next muggy move be? Rat Rating: 7
