Love Island fans call for Anton to be kicked off show over ‘blackface’ pic

The backlash is the latest race row to dog this year’s series. Viewers have been accusing bosses of ignoring Yewande Biala in the nightly highlights shows.

In Friday’s episode her romance with Michael Griffiths started to blossom, but she still had just a few minutes of screen time.

Reality star Jake Quickenden said: “I feel sorry for Yewande, no airtime, no decent conversation.”

Another said: “Where is Yewande?” And one joked: “Instead of playing the game Where’s Wally, we’re gonna play Where’s Yewande?”

But one fan insisted the editing was nothing to do with race. They posted: “The show isn’t racist to Yewande. Maybe she’s just boring.”
