LOVE Island star Haris Namani has divided viewers in half over what some believed to be a "derogatory remark".
During the second episode, Doncaster-lad Haris got on the defensive after the arrival of new boy Tom Clare, who spent time with each of the girls as he decided who to steal.
Sitting by the firepit with Anna-May Robey and Ron Hall, Haris saw Tom approach for his next chat, and joked: "Ello, ello, ello! You've been scoring top […] you mate."
Fans of the ITV2 series have been divided ever since about what it was he exactly said, with some believing Haris used the derogatory "top m***e" in reference to the women Tom had been speaking to.
Disgusted, fans slammed the comment on Twitter.
"He did not just say ‘scoring top m**ge’ next to a gif of Brooklyn 99 character Rosa Diaz pulling a disgusted face.
Another posted: “Scoring top m**ge are you?” next to a picture of Jay from The Inbetweeners.

However, the debate later rumbled on with many defending Haris, saying he was actually saying "top bins" – a football reference to scoring goals in a top corner of the net, meaning it's almost impossible to save.
In this case he was simply saying he was a hit with the girls of the villa.
"How you lot don’t know about the saying top bins? Stormzy even says it in Mel Made Me Do It," wrote one viewer.
"Top bins mean you’ve scored into the top corner and it’s a screamer," said another.
"If it was top bins, toms a footballer it’s was a pun. That’s it, there’s nothing more to it. Let it rest," urged a third.
Either way, Haris's safety on the show was confirmed when Tom ultimately decided to couple up with Olivia Hawkins.
