Love Island's sound department was working overtime on Thursday evening, as the contestants’ microphones picked up every single smooch and slurp in two kissing scenes.

Aaron Francis and Sharon Gaffka locked lips with their microphones on, only for Liberty Poole and Jake Cornish to follow suit moments later.

Party planner Aaron and civil servant Sharon are currently coupled up with two completely different people, but they felt a connection when they snogged in the horny devils challenge.

Sharon realised they'd never actually held a proper conversation, and they headed up to the balcony to get to know one another better.

While there, Aaron asked Sharon for a kiss, and they leaned in to share a sweet moment before the cameras.

As they played tonsil tennis, their microphones picked up the noise – leaving certain viewers complaining.

Meanwhile, Jake and Liberty could be seen lying on the daybeds, discussing the connection they have made over the past few days.

Eventually, they both leaned in for a kiss, wrapping their arms around one another.

The moment was sadly spoilt by Jake, who interrupted the romance to let out an enormous fart, leaving Liberty gasping for air.

Watching the smooches from home, Love Island viewers issued a desperate plea to ITV, asking that the volume be lowered during kissing scenes.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer penned: "Please mute the kissing."

"Why the mics so loud when they kissing," added a second, and a third remarked: "Lower the volume during the kissing @itv2 cause dammmm."

"Listen, Love Island producers, mute the mics during the kissing. Sounding like a colony of molluscs," moaned a fourth.

And a fifth agreed: "Nah they actually need to turn the mics down when people are kissing, the sounds make me cringe."

This isn't the first time fans have kicked off over the booming kissing noises on their TVs – the thunderous smooches are a Love Island staple.

Last year, during the first-ever winter edition of the show, viewers complained about Rebecca Gormley and Jordan Waobikeze’s noisy kiss.

However, ITV has refused to lower the volume – hinting viewers better get used to it.

Love Island airs on weekdays at 9pm on ITV2.
