It came after the explosive Movie Night scenes aired, and things got very heated as Scott defended himself after they showed a clip of him saying he would turn his head in Casa Amor.

This prompted a fiery row between Scott and Catherine, while Leah also piped up to defend her friend.

Scott was hurt when Leah told him that none of the Casa Amor girls wanted him.

“It's pretty rough watching. If the roles were reversed tonight (ie a popular islander) everyone would be booting off, but with him it's clear abuse and everyone moves on with nothing said.”

A lot of viewers responded saying they felt “uncomfortable” with the behaviour on the episode.

One person penned: “Someone has got to complain to the producers or Ofcom about the bullying from the girls to Scott because this is getting a bit too much.”

A second added: “Ofcom worthy clip, this is disgusting and the fact Leah wanted an apology after? Wtf.”

A third echoed: “Me rn sending in my complaint to ofcom about how s*** Scott is being treated by those girls.”

And someone else said: “If a woman was being bully by the men the way the girls are bullying Scott there be thousands of complaints on Ofcom. It’s so hard to watch. Love island staff do better.”

A fifth wrote: “I'm in the US so i cant make OFCOM complaints but people PLEASE complain about Catherine's behavior to scott i beg.”

Meanwhile, fans are still reeling about Molly's return to the show.

Molly was dumped from the villa by bombshell Kady McDermott, leaving her heartbroken about leaving love interest Zachariah Noble, 25.

In a rare move by producers, Molly was brought back – despite having returned to the "normal world" back in the UK.

Molly, 21, turned up alongside the other Casa Amor girls to shock Zachariah.
