Love Island's Kaz Crossley has made shocking claims that she and her former co-stars used to adopt racist accents to discuss subjects they didn't want aired. She revealed that contestants knew Love Island producers wouldn't show any conversations that could offend viewers.

"You knew what they could show or not - like they couldn't put in a lot of swearing, bad words or if you talked about racist jokes, anything like that", she confessed to Cambridge Union.

The 24-year-old added, "So sometimes, and we got into trouble for it, if you talk in an accent and say what you wanted to say then you knew they were never going to show it because they don't want to offend people."

She then revealed, "They show accents from the UK but not others, to avoid offending other countries."

This is not the first time the show has been hit with controversial claims.

Despite it being one of the most popular shows on TV, Love Island bosses have come under serious scrutiny over the past four years, due to the lack of diversity in the contestants they recruit.

As the majority of contestants who land a place on the show have 'perfect' bodies, viewers have previously called for more 'realistic' body shapes, and it looks like Love Island bosses have been listening.

As a result, the show's producers have now decided to include more 'curvier' female and male contestants for the 2019 series.
