Love Island runner up Luca Bish has spoken out on his "protective" behaviour of Gemma Owen in an Instagram live video shortly after leaving the famous villa.
The 23-year-old star has received a string of abusive tweets accusing him of being over protective of partner Gemma, 19, during their time on the hit ITV2 dating show.
After leaving the Majorcan villa, Luca and fellow finalists Andrew and Dami hosted an Instagram live to give fans the chance to see what they were getting up to since exiting the show.

In the Instagram live, which has since been uploaded to TikTok, Andrew is heard saying: "Where is Gem? Oi, people are requesting Gem. People are requesting Gem, go get her."
Luca then grabs the phone and says: "You want Gem? You want Gem? No chance. I'm so protective. Nah," before laughing and walking towards his partner.
The boys then pan to Gemma laying on a bed in the holding villa as she waves, before Luca bends down to give her a kiss.
It comes after Luca's family were forced to issue a statement during his time on the show after he was accused of being "possessive" towards Gemma and of being a "bully" to Tasha.
After a fan asked how the family were, his account responded: "First of all, thank you to the tons of people that asked this.
"If I'm being honest, not remotely okay. It's really, really hard."
The account continued: "How would you feel if you were having people constantly praying for death over the people you love more than anything in the world? We feel broken."
Luca’s sister Claudia Bish was managing his account whilst he was away in the villa.
She added: "I'm not stupid, I understand that people will always have their opinions and nobody can take that away from them, but if you saw HALF of the messages we have received then I'm sure anyone would feel disgusted."
Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Culculoglu were crowned the champions on Monday night with a landslide victory of 63.7% of the vote.
Gemma and Luca came second, ndiyah Polack and Dami Hope landed in third place and Andrew Le Page and Tasha Ghouri finished fourth.
