13 HUGE Love Island fights that happened off camera

Because sometimes the biggest fall outs were the ones we didn't see

by Ben Pulsford |

Here at heat, we spend a lot of our days reminiscing about the frankly iconic Love Island drama that has happened over the years. Anna Vakili putting Jordan Hames in his place after he cracked on with India Reynolds under her nose? Legendary.

What about when Olivia Attwood kicked off at pretty much everyone? Iconic. Or when Malin Andersson asked for her sunglasses when she came back to the show to confront Terry Walsh? One of the best reality telly moments we've ever seen, tbh.

And then, of course, there are all the beautifully iconic events that led up to the most rousing use of the English language on Love Island in all of the show's history, "You are a liar, an actress, go the f--k out." And, hey, that fight proved that some of these roads can eventually lead to true love...

At least by Love Island standards.

Sometimes, though, a lot of the best Love Island drama occurs when they get back home to Blighty, no longer protected by the Love Island bubble and thrown into a life of nightclub PAs and thousands more followers on social media.

And don't get us started on the fights we miss out on because they end up on the Love Island editing room floor. Frankly, that just makes us assume the worst.

This Love Island #dramz is so hot, people are STILL getting burned by it. Love Island 2022 bombshells Coco Lodge and Summer Botwe went from besties to BLOWS pretty much overnight over fellow bombshell Josh Samuel Le Grove. Things got so heated between the pair on and offline that they allegedly got physically separated at this year's reunion episode after an epic shade-throwing match. For whatever reason the majority of the reunion fight ended up on the cutting room floor, but a member of the studio audience did tweet, "Just been at the #LoveIsland reunion episode filming, very heated exchange between Coco and Summer production had to step in and close it down." And we thank them for that. Finalist Dami Hope also confirmed that what was shown on our screens was "mid" compared to the real reunion fight. The girls are currently ghosting and blocking one another left, right and centre.

Rumours of a rift between Jacques O'Neill and Remi Lambert on Love Island 2022 were rife several weeks ago but, for whatever reason, ITV chose to remove the arguments from our screens. Jacques then appeared to re-spark the apparent feud during a downright savage Instagram Live with best mate Luca, where Remi's name was brought up, once again (this time Remi's rapping was the focus of the pair's conversation). This lead Remi to release a statement on the pair, accusing Jacques of "bullying" and Luca of the same (albeit indirectly). Remi posted the following to social media, "Don’t know why they wasn’t kicked out for their behaviour to be honest. It’s not banter, it’s clear signs of bullying" along with a TikTok of their Instagram Live. Love Island finalist Tasha went on to like Remi's post.

In a classic case of not everyone is going to like you, Love Island 2019 star Anton Danyluk made his feelings VERY clear towards Molly-Mae Hague when he unfollowed her on Instagram right after leaving the villa, claiming that they 'never got along'. The pair came to head on the reunion episode of Aftersun, with Anton saying it wasn't his 'choice' to follow Molly-Mae in the first place and believed she was playing a game in the villa. While Mols chose to respond to him by shaking her head and mouthing 'f off', Anton insisted it had nothing to do with speculation from viewers that his dislike was rooted in the fact she and Tommy Fury voted him and his now ex Belle Hassan off the show.

It's no secret that Molly-Mae chooses not to have many pals, recently telling Stephen Bartlett's podcast Diary Of A CEO, 'friends, they come and go. I find it a bit of a waste of time' and that signing up for Love Island was more of a business deal. Aside from her bestie Maura Higgins, the influencer chose to distance herself from all the girls that appeared in her season of the show. As well as choosing not to attend reunion events, not inviting her former co-stars to her brand events and declining girly sleepovers, Molly has admitted that it just 'wouldn't make sense' for all the girls to be really close still. Her decision to distance herself from her former Love Island pals hasn't gone down too well with some people, though, with Lucie Donlan revealing that hardly any of the 2019 alumni 'speak to her anymore'. Ouch.

Sticking with the 2019 series (they were a fiery bunch), a secret feud between Lucie Donlan and Yewande Biala came to light after the Islanders left the villa. After Lucie claimed Yewande had 'bullied' her in a series of old Instagram comments. Yewande hit back, replying, "You refused to call me by my name because it was too "hard to pronounce" now you wanna say I bullied you !! Bullied". The Irish scientist was later defended by her co-star Amy Hart, saying, "We haven't spoken about it publicly because it was Yewande's story to tell. I remember dates, times, locations of every conversation in that villa. There's so much you don't see x".

Despite Jon Clark (series one) and Chloe Crowhurst (series three) appearing on completely different seasons of the show, there was still drama bubbling between these two warring exes. To take you back, Chloe was accused of going on Love Island while she was still reportedly dating TOWIE star Jon, but soon hit back tweeting that she was going on the show as Jon "told me he was cheating on me with 15 other girls". Fast forward a whole summer and Jon was still calling Chloe a "liar" and labelled her stint on the show a 'publicity stunt'. However, the feud didn't stop them briefly reuniting as they shared a kiss at DSTRKT nightclub in June 2017.

Charlie Frederick was left FUMING in 2019 when two of his exes, Arabella Chi and Lucie Donlan entered the villa. After being booted off the show before their arrival, he called out Love Island and shared messages stating that he was actually seeing Arabella just two weeks before the show started, he even labelled her "sly as f*ck' on Instagram. Telling his followers on Insta stories, he said, "Right so this is all an absolute madness for me. Finding out that a person I'm seeing/have a lot of feelings for. On a serious level has just strolled into the villa completely disregarding my feelings and our relationship or what we had."I feel like I have to air these screen shots because I feel like I've been completely mugged off. I'm truly upset that Arabella has lied to me about what she was doing and claiming she had a campaign but instead actioning going into Love Island."

Love Island 2017 star Tyne-Lexy Clarson had a LOT to say about her co-star post-villa, labelling her "not a very nice person". She told The Sun: "I was the victim of it unfortunately in the villa. It was like typical bitchiness between girls."But obviously I'm not like that at all I'm used to having girly-girls around me that support each other. And I think she liked to batten me down."

Love Island series four was EXPLOSIVE enough, but tensions between some of the girls got even worse back in Blighty as Darylle Sargeant and Samira Mighty had to be separated at a press launch for a dating app after Samira found out Darylle labelled her 'fame-hungry' during an appearance on Lorraine. It got so heated that their co-star Laura Anderson had to intervene.

Aw, Jakey. In 2021, Jake Cornish's romance with Liberty Poole fell apart and so did his relationships with 90% of the girls, including Lib's best mate Kaz Kamwi. After jetting back home from the villa early, Jake wasn't seen at the reunion show and seemingly started to distance himself from the group. He admitted in September 2021, "I don't speak to any of the girls. I think I'm a lone wolf that side. They're there and I've just gone this way."Jake was subsequently snapped partying with Kaz's ex-boyfriend Tyler Cruishank and Liam Reardon.
