Love Island fans left gagging over challenge despite bosses plan to ‘axe game’

Love Island viewers were left outraged during the latest episode of the ITV2 dating show as the 'disgusting' eating challenge returned.

The group of sexy singletons took part in a challenge named Lip Service during Monday's (June 21) episode which saw the boys guzzle a mouthful of ingredients before sliding across a dancefloor where they had to transfer it to the girls.

They then had to then spit the remaining contents into a giant cocktail glass and the first couple to fill it were crowned winners of the game.

Fans watching at home didn't expect to watch "gross" segment this year as bosses originally planned to ditch the task.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "I thought they said they weren't doing this challenge this year?"

Another posted: "The producers are liars I swore they said these challenges were no more. Why do they hate us?"

A third person said: "The way I was gagging during the game/challenge in tonight’s #LoveIsland episode."

While a fourth social media user wrote: "I thought we got rid of this biohazard challenge."

Executive producer Mike Spencer previously explained how the dating series is progressing as it entered its eighth year on air.

Answering questions during a Q&A session on Reddit, he was asked by one fan: "Why the spitting food challenges. I beg youse to stop, such a waste of food! I really think doing challenges with incentives or couple building activities would be so much better."

He replied: "We are moving away from the food challenges as previously seen so hopefully that sorts that one."

"We try to strive to be better as an environmentally friendly production and we try to be better with waste in this day and age."

Elsewhere in the episode, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu had a fiery spat with Amber Beckford and Gemma Owen after they accused of "playing a game".

"You’re trying to create s**t with me to p*ss me the f**k off,’" Ekin-Su slammed in response during Monday’s episode.

"You’re really p*ssing me off."

Referring to Amber’s romance with Dami Hope, she continued: "You’re playing a game.

"Am I playing a game or are you playing a game? Oh yeah, because you’re really secure in your relationship."
