Love Island star Danny Bibby has warned viewers to take the hit ITV show 'with a pinch of salt' in a new Instagram video, insisting the programme is 'edited to make you someone you're not'.

His comments on Saturday come two days after charity Women's Aid accused the 25-year-old plumber of 'gaslighting' Lucinda Strafford, who chose to couple up with Aaron Francis over Danny, despite the latter's best efforts.

In a new video shared on Instagram, Danny can be seen lying shirtless in bed while addressing his followers, telling them: 'I've just been watching the show, right. And listen guys, just take it all with a pinch of salt,' before revealing what really happened between himself and Lucinda.

The heavily tattooed social media star - who was dumped from the villa alongside AJ Bunker in Wednesday night's episode - went on: 'That's all I'm saying, because a lot of it is edited to make you be someone you're not, all right?'

Explaining a particular moment in which Danny's actions were perceived to be unkind when he told Lucinda: 'Why would I make you a coffee?' after she had chosen Aaron over him, Danny suggested that the reality of the situation had been skewed.

He said: 'For instance, the part where I told Lucinda: ''Why would I make you a coffee?'' That was a little joke because I was making her a coffee.

'I said: ''Why wouldn't I because we're mates?'' And the fact is I actually made the coffee for Lucinda and gave it to Aaron and said: ''Here bro, here's Lucinda's coffee. Give her that, that'll get you in her good books''.'

Danny concluded: 'Honestly, enjoy the show - but remember it's a show.'

Following the release of Danny's social media video, a Love Island representative told MailOnline: 'The opinions they have and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves.

'It is always our intention to produce a show that is a fair and accurate representation of life in the villa.'

On Wednesday, Danny was accused of 'gaslighting' Lucinda by the charity Women's Aid.  

He was vocally annoyed when Lucinda 'ignored him' to speak with Aaron, with Women's Aid saying they thought Danny's behaviour demonstrated 'possessiveness and manipulation'. 

Teresa Parker, Head of Media and Communications at Women's Aid said: 'Our team at Women's Aid watched Danny and Lucinda's relationship develop and became increasingly concerned with his behaviour towards her on screen.' 

Statement: Danny has been criticised by charity Women's Aid for his behaviour towards Lucinda which they believe 'looked like gaslighting'

She went on: 'Including what looked like gaslighting, possessiveness, and manipulation. 

'This is clearly not what a healthy relationship looks like, and these are all tactics used by perpetrators of abuse.

'Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse which makes someone question their perception of reality and can be used to confuse, exhaust and control the victim.'

They added: 'More widely, coercive control, which is a persistent pattern of controlling, coercive and threatening behaviour, has been a criminal offence since 2015 – you do not have to be hit to be abused in a relationship. 

'We urge the producers of Love Island to recognise the signs of abusive behaviour when it is happening on the show, as this is not the first time it has happened. 

'Abuse should not be used for entertainment, and producers need to know when to step in.'

Danny came under fire for how he reacted when Aaron tried to kiss Lucinda in front of him.

Viewers were worried he was showing several red flags after mimicking the blonde bombshell and the seriousness in which he confronted her for 'mugging him off' after only a day of being in the villa.

The plumber could be seen in the background looking shocked and was quick to pull Aaron aside - after branding him a 'snake'.

He told him: 'Lad, it's my first night, yeah. I've just recoupled with her, and then you go and try and slap this on her.

'You just look like a mug and she's gone and mugged you off in front of everyone.

'Do you not feel like an idiot? Like, do you not think I deserve a bit of respect?'

Viewers saw Danny and Lucinda end things on Monday after he pied her during the Snog, Marry, Pie challenge.

He said: 'I'm not the type to chase you like a little dog. I'd rather take you down a peg and have banter with you. 

'I feel like you give nothing back to me. I'm not asking for a kiss, I'm asking you to come and ask me am I alright. I can sense you gravitating towards Aaron more than me.' 

'I need to just nip it in the bud I think,' Danny said, to which Lucinda agreed: 'You need to nip it
