Why Faye escaped Love Island dumping twist as fans rage over her staying safe in villa

Love Island has been far from a peaceful oasis in recent days after Faye Winter unleashed a expletive filled tirade against Teddy Soares and other contestants on Friday night.

But now it is the viewers who are unleashing fury as Sunday night’s episode saw 26-year-old Faye saved by the public from being dumped – despite leaving most viewers cold with her vicious outbursts.

On Sunday night, Love Island host Laura Whitmore gatecrashed a club day to drop a bombshell on the Islanders.

She explained that the public had been voting to save their favourite contestants and that the three boys and three girls with the lowest votes would be up for eviction.

But viewers were stunned to see Faye saved from elimination – while Kaz Kamwi, Mary Bedford and Abigail Rawlings’ futures hang in the balance.

However, the simple answer as to why Faye won backing despite her unsavoury outbursts on the show is that voting closed before her unsightly scenes aired.

Fans of Love Island are able to vote for their favourite contestants via the official Love Island app.

But the votes closed well before Friday night’s explosive scenes aired, meaning people who are no longer fans of Faye would have unwittingly voted for her to stay before her true colours were shown.

Some viewers have noticed that this is why she was spared from having her head on the chopping block on Sunday night.

Taking to Twitter, one fan commented: “I think people have forgot the voting closed before the hurricane Faye episode. Had it of been open she’d 100% of been in the bottom, prob in place of Kaz or Abi but ya know islanders would of saved her anyway #loveisland.”

And, indeed, some fans had a sinking feeling when they watched Friday night’s episode as they were repulsed by Faye’s abusive treatment of Teddy but knew already that she would be safe to stay on the show for longer.

One clued up viewer tweeted on Friday: “There was absolutely no point of giving us a whole episode of Faye shouting. Voting is closed and we’ll still have to hear her shout for another week. #LoveIsland.”

Love Island fans have complained to OfCom over Faye’s abusive behaviour as they feel she was out of line as she screamed, shouted and swore at him.

Now the family of Faye have been forced to ask Love Island viewers to stop sending her abuse online amid a furious backlash against her.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, they wrote via Faye’s account, which they are running while she is in the villa: “We understand that fans of Love Island have opinions on Friday night’s episode.
