Love Island’s Millie Court and Liam Reardon may be getting on like a house on fire in the reality romance show villa – but some content filmed of the two has been deemed too hot to air.
Makers of the smash ITV2 show have been left blushing and forced to edit out explicit scenes over fears the raunchy footage would spark an avalanche of Ofcom complaints.
While the series makers have also upped the duty or care commitments to contestants on the show and are concerned airing scenes of a sexual nature could reflect badly on the up-and-coming stars and leave them open to abuse.
Millie, 24, and 21-year-old Liam won the chance to spend time away from the eyes of their fellow Islanders – but still in full view of cameras – when they spent time together in the hideaway.
While Millie’s 55-year-old mum, Esme, thinks her daughter is falling for Liam, saying: “They seem like they’ve got a great connection. I think as people, they seem like they’re having a right laugh.
“It’s all quite light-hearted. It’s obvious there is a massive connection there – a lot of sexual tension. You can see by the way she looks at him she’s quite smitten.”
Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 and via the ITV Hub at 9pm
