Love Island’s Michael Griffiths has been slammed by a women’s charity for being “manipulative”.

During last night’s show, the 27-year-old admitted he still had feelings for Amber, after he previously dumped her for Joanna Chimonides during the show’s Casa Amor twist.

Michael’s behaviour has left viewers furious, as many have accused the fireman of playing a game in order to win the show’s £50k cash prize.

And now Adina Claire, Acting Co-Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, has told The Sun Online: “Women’s Aid is becoming increasingly concerned about what appear to be unhealthy fledgling relationships being used as entertainment in Love Island.”

“Most recently, the programme has shown Amber repeatedly reduced to tears and appearing to have her emotions manipulated.”

“We hope that producers are looking after the well-being of the contestants and will step in when any form of behaviour becomes abusive.

“We have been contacted by a number of viewers on social media throughout the series about behaviour they are worried about, involving several contestants, and would ask producers to always take this seriously, and consider the messages being sent to viewers and contestants on the show.”

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
