Love Island viewers joke they will riot after ‘cruel’ Dani and Jack stunt
LOVE Island viewers were furious as Dani Dyer was forced to watch her man Jack Fincham reunited with his ex, saying it was ‘torture’ rather than entertainment.
Fan favourites Dani and Jack have been coupled up since early in the ITV2 series and recently made their relationship official, becoming girlfriend and boyfriend.
But Jack has now been moved to another villa — Casa Amor — where his former flame Ellie Jones is living with a new set of girls.
In last night’s episode the girls received a message from the boys which included footage of Jack looking stunned as he spotted Ellie.
Dani was reduced to tears as she watched, sobbing: ‘This is bullshit, this is bullshit.’
‘I don’t even want to see him,’ she cried later in the Beach Hut. ‘I just knew it was too good to be true.’
Viewers were heartbroken — and angry — at the dramatic scenes, with Ofcom receiving 650 complaints about the episode.
‘That was hard to watch. Game show or not that was cruel,’ one person posted on Twitter.
‘This Dani and Jack thing is not entertainment at all, this is bloody torture and truly heartbreaking stop it!!!’ said another.
Another ranted: ‘I’m actually annoyed at how Love Island have messed with Dani’s feelings. Now she feels as though Jack has ditched her for his ex! My heart actually broke!’
Many joked that there would be trouble if the move wrecks Dani and Jack’s romance.
‘If Love Island producers have caused a Jack and Dani break up — we riot,’ one tweeted.
No comment has yet been made by Dani’s dad, TV hardman Danny Dyer, who last week told Piers Morgan he’d ‘strangle’ Jack if he messed her around.
Love Island continues on ITV2
