Love Island's been on our TV screens for six years (excluding the celebrity version) and there's been some pretty controversial moments in that time.

However it turns out that Love Island 2021 is the most complained about series and it's all to do with the Casa Amor postcard.

While the postcard allowed a few of the girls to see the boys intentions on their "lads holiday", it left poor Millie Court in the dark about Liam Reardon's behaviour and Faye Winter was completely misled with Teddy Soares antics.

Millie only saw Liam sleeping in bed with Lillie however she was unaware that he was getting to know her, he ended up snogging her a few times and in a challenge he even had a three-way kiss.

Whereas Teddy kissed Clarisse in a game but he remained completely loyal to Faye and even slept outside.

Following the shocking episode where the girls received the postcard it turns out thousands of viewers complained about it.

According to The Sun, the TV watchdog received a whopping 4,330 complaints and Ofcom also received 738 complaints over the "postcard issue".

This isn't the first time Love Island bosses have come under fire for their challenges. Back in 2018, fans slammed the show after Dani Dyer was left in a flood of tears after seeing a clip of Jack Fincham discovering that his ex-girlfriend had entered the Casa Amor villa.

Love Island's saddest moments of all time (SLIDER)

Samira Mighty1 of 9

Samira is distraught as Frankie is sent home

There have been a couple of notable teary times from Samira Mighty. Firstly, she cried in frustration to Megan Barton Hanson, confused at why no one ever fancies her (which is a fair enough question because she's mega-babez). And when Samira finally DID find love with Frankie Foster, the public cruelly voted him out just days later. Samira broke down, crying: "I just don't understand."NEITHER DO WE, SAMIRA.Tear tally: 9 (mostly because she also had to put up with Alex in the first week)

Lee Sharpe rejects Jayne Middlemiss

TV personality Jayne Middlemiss fell hard for former football ace Lee Sharpe. She was left heartbroken when Lee confessed his feelings for fellow contestant Abi Titmuss. Jayne got emotional when she confronted Lee by asking why he fell for Abi. She then made a heartfelt but savvy speech that we can ALL relate to: "You binned me off. Accept the fact and get over it. It was the best thing you did for me. It was huge. My biggest fear in life is rejection. It doesn't scare me now. Now we've got something deeper than if we had a stupid thing. Not to say it would have been a stupid thing."Tear tally: 6

Zara Holland stripped of her Miss England title

Zara Holland was stripped of her Miss GB title after having sex with Alex Bowen. She broke down in tears, telling the other girls she felt like she'd let her family down and was worried that people would judge her. The girls rightly assured her that people would be fuming at the decision to strip a young woman of the title because she had sex. Hear, hear!Tear tally: 7

Sophie Gradon leaves the villa

After a confusing week - which saw Sophie Gradon dump Tom Powell, share a sneaky snog with Katie Salmon, end things with a fiery argument, then decide she actually loves Tom - Sophie decided to leave the villa. Sophie had an emotional time on the island and we were relieved to see her leaving with a smile on her face. Tear tally: 7We were later devastated to hear tragic reports of Sophie's death two years after the show.

Camilla Thurlow cries while Johnny Mitchell snogs Tyla Carr

Camilla Thurlow was ALL of us when she cried on Marcel Somerville's shoulder, while her love interest Johnny Mitchell stuck his tongue down Tyla Carr's tongue (who has since had a baby with a mystery man, BTW). She cried: "I honestly thought it was going somewhere, I just started to let myself get excited. I think this is always end up going to me."But Camilla was the real winner in the situation after delivering THAT feminism lesson to Johnny. Tear tally: 8 (because we've all been there, honey)

Amber Davies6 of 9

End of the road for Kember?

It very nearly looked like the end for Love Island 2017 favourites Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies. Kem revealed to Amber that he felt friend-zoned and mugged off after a re-coupling. Viewers could hardly breathe as Amber cried: "I just don't think I'm the right one for you at all. If I'm making you unhappy then there's no point."It was a precarious moment, but thankfully the pair became boyfriend and girlfriend before going on the win the show and split the money. Oh but they split up a few months later.Tear tally: 6

Dom storms out of villa after hearing about Jess and Mike

Dom Lever was in floods of tears when Jess Shears left the villa. He sobbed: "It's the little things that are getting to me - who do you wake up with? Who brings you coffee in the morning?" But Marcel Somerville had to deliver the news that Jess had shared a night of passion with Mike Thalassitis in the outside world. He then stormed out of the villa before returning and telling Marcel: ""I know it was real, I was true to her and I thought it was special."Tear tally: 9 (he was properly blubbering, guys)

Dani Dyer8 of 9

Dani breaks down over cruel video

Fans were furious when producers broke up lovebirds Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer by shipping the boys off to Casa Amor. They then sent Dani a craftily edited video of Jack's ex Ellie Jones entering the villa, which suggested that something was going on between the two of them. Dani broke down in tears and over 600 viewers complained to OfCom. Nobody messes with the nation's sweethearts.Tear tally: 9 (if Dani cries, we cry)

While the boys were in Casa Amor with an army of new girls, Georgia Steel stayed loyal to Josh Denzel and turned down the chance to re-couple with a new boy.But Josh returned to the villa with Kazimir Crossley on his arm, while Georgia stood solo and whispered: "How could you do this to me Josh?"We admired Georgia for taking a deep breath, swallowing her anger and carrying on.Tear tally: 7

Love Island: the best ever Casa Amor moments

Is this the REAL reason Hugo Hammond said 'job done' after kissing Amy Day?

Wait, has Hugo had a bust up with the OG islanders?

After watching Jack's reaction to his ex arriving, Dani tearfully said, "This is bulls--t. It always f--king happens to me though, as soon as I’m happy with someone something happens to me.

"I’m not allowed to be happy, it’s such bulls--t."

Ofcom received over 2,000 complaints at the time however it later came to light that Love Island didn't breach broadcasting rules.

At the time a spokesperson for Ofcom 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."
