Love Island’s Laura Whitmore under fire after remarks about Ekin-Su on Aftersun | The Sun

LOVE Island host Laura Whitmore has come under fire following a series of remarks made about Ekin-Su on last night’s Aftersun.

Laura, 37, was discussing Ekin-Su’s reported antics in bed with dumped Islander George – despite the Turkish actress repeatedly denying anything happened.

She kicked off by saying: "Once again Ekin-Su swore that nothing happened with George and it seems Davide doesn’t believe her."

As Laura burst into laughter, Tom Grennan exclaimed: "It deffo happened though didn’t it"

Darren Harriott continued: "She said her head never turned but I think her hand might have turned, and possibly wrist."

Instead of shutting down the conversation, Laura then turned to Sian Welby to ask her opinion.

The comments left her family and friends feeling very uncomfortable and the person looking after her account last night tweeted: “The fact that the s*** shaming is being passed off as banter and good television is very concerning at this rate #LoveIsland.”

Her followers were on a similar wavelength, with one writing: “Laura Whitmore encouraging the aftersun panel to speak about the Ekin and George situation yet we say one negative word about her presenting and it’s all bekind? End this show now. #loveisland.”

A second added: “Actually feel ill looking at the s*** shaming about Ekin Su online and Laura Whitmore only encouraging it yet if someone says BOO to her she cries be kind. I'm probably going to switch off from #loveisland tonight. It doesn't feel safe being a women in this world.”

While a third tweeted: “Laura Whitmore encouraging the aftersun panel to speak about the Ekin and George situation yet we say one negative word about her presenting and it’s all bekind? End this show now.”

Others defended Laura though and insisted she was just covering what was relevant to the show.

Just days before Laura brought up what happened between the sheets during a radio interview – claiming she saw a little fiddle.

In the much-talked about scene between Ekin and George, the actress was seen looking very flustered after cosying up next to the lad in the bed.

As the duo got close, Ekin-Su moaned: "For f*** sake," and George later told her that she was a "nightmare".

The next day George told the rest of the lads that something had happened.

"Something pretty mad happened last night," he said, before revealing: "There was some touching going on."

Later on Ekin-Su pulled him aside for a chat to make sure that they both understood that nothing would come from it and insisted that nothing had happened.

Earlier this series Laura was slammed by viewers who claimed she tried to humiliate Remi on the show.

Remi, 22, appeared on the show after he was dumped from the villa and viewers were quick to question if he was ok as he seemed to struggle during the chat, particularly when he was asked to rap.

Laura quickly hit back writing: “Remi is a rapper and asked in good faith in advance if he’d rap and prepare something which he did.

“Live Telly is nerve wrecking, believe me, so maybe he was a bit nervous but he deserved to have his time.”
