Love Island's Josh Denzel received 'sickening' racist abuse from a viewer claiming to be his 'work enemy' following last night's dramatic recoupling.

Fans were left heartbroken as Josh chose to recouple with Casa Amor girl Kazimir Crossley; leaving former partner Georgia Steel devastated. And while the nation was shocked, one troll took things too far as they emailed Josh disgusting abuse.

In the email, shared and since deleted by his official Instagram account, the individual referred to Josh as a 'spear thrower' and explained they hope he gets 'deported' after last night's episode.

"I am so disappointed you f**g rat. Get braces you m.

"I can’t believe you f****d over your wee G. Hope you get deported when you get chucked out.

"P.S. are you and Samira related.

"From your work enemy.

"Sent from my iPhone (I’ll smash yours)."

The friend running Josh's official account whilst he's in the villa then exposed the troll's contact details.
