Love Island viewers hit out at 'uncomfortable' episode in the wake of the ...

Love Island viewers were left unimpressed when contestants had to vote each other as 'most likely to cheat' or 'least compatible' in Monday night's episode.

Some fans of the series felt the challenge was 'uncomfortable' to watch following the show's #BeKind campaign in the wake of former host Caroline Flack's passing.

The task saw the islanders gather in a circle with their respective partners and cast votes for each other.

However, some felt the task made for awkward viewing as it featured in the same episode as the #BeKind campaign.

One fan wrote: 'Love Island started the episode by telling the world to be kind, yet here they are televising a 'task' that is designed to cause conflict amongst a group of people who are living together. Hmmm.'

Another echoed the same sentiment, writing: '@LoveIsland you hashtag #bekind then get the contestants to do challenges where they're forced to be anything but kind to each other? #Hypocties'.

Another viewer added: 'Love Island: "Be Kind." Also Love Island: "name the most fake couple," "name the couple you would least like to double date with". Double standard.'

One fan wrote on Twitter: 'Maybe it's just me, but watching couples publicly rate each other 'least compatible' and 'most likely to cheat' doesn't seem to fit with the #BeKind message. Uncomfortable viewing tonight.'

Others felt the task that happened later in the episode, where the couples had to vote for who they thought was the least compatible, also made for uncomfortable viewing. 

One said: 'I am a fan of the show and very poignant intro. Glad the message was put out there to be kind.

'However the show had the contestants choosing two couples they thought weren't compatible and pointing out each other's faults. I feel it was inappropriate timing to air that episode.'

Only two couples escaped being put up for the public vote to be dumped from the villa during Monday's episode.
