Love Island star Laura Whitmore has been hit with more than 400 complaints to Ofcom for s***-shaming Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and the treatment of Jacques O'Neil on Aftersun.

After tuning in for the weekend spin-off programme, viewers were left with a bad taste – with 427 people turning to the Watchdog to file their grievances.

Fans were left raging after Turkish beauty Ekin-Su seemed to dominate the conversation on Sunday 17 July.

The panel which included host Laura, had been busy discussing the aftermath of Movie Night which had aired on Friday 15 July.

Ekin-Su who is coupled with Davide Sancliment was shown having interactions with George in scandalous clip – soon before she jumped out of bed declaring: "We're just friends."

The actress was further exposed in a second segment which saw Ekin-Su ask George not to sat anything to anyone else in Case Amor.

Speaking to guests such as singer Tom Grennan, Laura opened the show taking aim at Ekin-Su.

She said: "Once again Ekin-Su swore that nothing happened with George and it seems Davide doesn’t believe her."

"It defo happened though didn’t it?" asked Tom.

While comedian Darren Harriott chimed in: "She said her head never turned but I think her hand might have turned, and possibly wrist."

The AfterSun presenter, seemed to be encouraging the discussion and that is what fans found most outrageous.

Floods of online users flocked to their keyboards to complain, with one person writing: "The fact that slut shaming is being passed off as banter and good television is very concerning at this rate #LoveIsland."

Beneath that post, one person confirmed they had followed up with the regulator Ofcom to complain about the situation.
