The current series of Love Island has attracted more than 2,000 complaints in less than four weeks.

Broadcasting watchdog regulator Ofcom has confirmed that 56 angry viewers complained about the ITV2 dating show in between July 20 and July 26.

The fresh set of reports made by fans join the previous 1,000 complaints regarding the casting of contestant Danny Bibby.

The plumber from Wigan, who was dumped from the island last week, entered the famous villa as a bombshell, however fans immediately called for him to be removed after they discovered he had used a racial slur in a 2019 Instagram comment.

After eagled-eyed social media users discovered Danny's use of a racial slur, he apologised from inside the villa in a statement released by ITV.

The seventh series of Love Island was hit by 426 for the episode on July 18.

Earlier in the series, 235 viewers complained about PE teacher Hugo Hammond not being picked during a racy game while a further 156 fans objected to behaviour towards Hugo during an disagreement with Faye Winters and Sharon Gaffka.

Wednesday's episode of Love Island is set to be a dramatic one.

Casa Amor has already been unnerving the girls of the main villa this week.

However, it looks as though things are about to ruffle them even further in upcoming scenes.

A teaser ahead of the new episode sees Chloe Burrows collect a postcard from Casa Amor from the doorstep – the morning after the two villas took part in a contest involving kissing and toe-sucking.

Chloe is seen picking up the postcard and exclaiming in shock as she reads it to herself in the villa lobby.

"Oh my – no f**king way!" she gasped, as narrator Iain Stirling promised that "big news sends the villa into meltdown."

Tuesday's edition saw plenty of potential betrayal bubbling, as the likes of Tyler, Liam and Toby were all seen getting into bed with new girls.

The main villa, meanwhile, saw their partners Kaz, Millie and Abigail dutifully refrain from chatting to the new boys, roughing it in the living room or on the day beds outside.

Fans will have to wait and see which boys return to the villa single.

Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 and ITVHub at 9pm
