Love Island viewers have flocked to Ofcom in their hundreds to complain about Wednesday night’s task, News Splash.

As part of the task, Islanders were asked to guess the names blanked out from various headlines, and Paige Turley was left fumin’ after one headline transpired to have read, “Casa Amor cause] Callum, Finn and Nas’ heads to turn on tonight’s Love Island”.

While Finn Tapp frantically denied this was the case, Paige was later recorded in the Beach Hut saying, “It's no secret I'm not the most trusting so this just feels a bit like betrayal."

But fans jumped to Finn’s defence on social media, with many calling the headline “false” and “fake news”.

“This #LoveIsland news splash is silly,” said one commenter. “Why Pick headlines for things that are false?!”

Bombshell Tyler was pretty keen on Kaz... Until Casa Amor. His head did a complete 180 when he met Clarisse. But when he returned to the villa, Tyler did a complete U-turn and got back with Kaz. Poor Clarisse and Matthew (who Kaz was coupled up with) were then left single.

“The producers are actually so bad mind for this challenge. Finn has done nothing wrong,” said another, while a third wrote, “Producers: We really care about the mental health of our contestants.

“Also producers: yes let’s show Paige total lies about Finn even if it ruins their relationship and causes distress because it’s good TV #LoveIsland.”

One troubled fan shared a screenshot of Finn conked out on the day bed and captioned it, “'Casa Amor caused Finn’s head to turn’.
