When show bosses decided to create Love Island All Stars, even they wouldn’t have realised how the series was going to become a fan favourite instantly. From gossip, romances and clashes between exes to a flood of drama, lies and heartbreak, everything is served on a platter and how!

While being on TV has its perks, it has its nasty side too. Seeing how islanders are trolled for their actions in the villa and sometimes even families get involved, show bosses introduced a social media ban for islanders in the last few series.

Love Island All Stars’ Georgia Steel received ‘vile threats’

All Stars contestants had the liberty to keep their social media accounts active and that has backfired for one star in particular - Georgia Steel. The 25-year-old was recently labelled the ‘snakiest’ islander during the PDA Awards and has been moving the messiest in the villa.

Many Love Island fans have disliked her for chaotic moves in the villa, but things recently got out of hand as her family issued a statement urging people to stop sending her hate. According to The Sun, Georgia’s family has revealed she is receiving ‘vile threats’ after being targeted by cruel trolls. They took to Instagram and wrote:

It is a TV show and everyone has their opinions, please remember it's not real life!
Sending vile threats and nasty messages and comments is really unacceptable. Trolling is not OK.

They urged people to be mindful of their words as Georgia is someone's ‘daughter, granddaughter, sister and friend’ and these words will leave her ‘devastated’ when she exits the villa.

Love Island contestants who have received ‘vile’ threats previously

Unfortunately, receiving vile threats is more common for islanders than one could think. Every series has seen at least one islander get targeted and ‘villainised,’. For instance Olivia Hawkins to Catherine Agbaje have been trolled online.

Apart from Georgia Steel, Toby Aromolaran has also previously received death threats during his first stint on the show. The former islander was sent threats when he kissed Chloe Burrows while being coupled up with Kaz Kamwi, reports The Mirror.

His family shared a screenshot of a hateful comment that read:

F*** you. You think your something. I hope you die. Go and crawl into a hole in the ground and dieeee. (sic)

They claimed that the negative comments were a lot more and urged the viewers to be nice. Another OG islander Amy Hart - who currently hosts the Love Island podcast with Sam Thompson and Indiyah Polack - also received death threats during her series. Reflecting on her time on in the show, Amy shared that her friends and family had to read ‘death threats and horrible messages’ while she was in the villa, confirms Express.
