'Love Island' Viewers Are Convinced The Show Is Set Up After Spotting Something Fishy
Love Island is facing new accusations the show is 'set up' after eagle-eyed viewers spotted an 'inconsistency' between scenes.
In an episode shown a fortnight ago, Maura Higgins, Anna Vakili, Yewande Biala and Amber Gill are all huddled around the fire pit while they grill Lucie Donlan about her friendship with the boys.
However Anna and Yewande appear to mysteriously switch places within a matter of seconds.
At the start of the scene, Anna is sitting to the far right of the group but as Lucie begins to cry, she suddenly switches places with Yewande - suggesting their placement wasn't completely natural and that the scene may have been recorded more than once.
The bizarre mix-up isn't the only thing getting the rumour mill going. Many social media users have accused producers of writing Danny Williams' speech for him in last night's episode.
As he discussed who he wanted to couple up with, the male model used the word 'intellectual' leading viewers to falsely believe he was talking about former flame and scientist Yewande rather than ASOS model Arabella Chi.
a swear love islands completely set up, is danny no charlie from last years pal? and arabella is apparently still going out with charlie? so she's going for danny not for romance but because charlie would trust him, so they could both get fame & money, hmmm

Other fans of the show have questioned why Danny, Arabella and Lucie claim not to have met before - despite the fact both Arabella and Lucie are mutual exes of Danny's friend (and former Love Island 2018 contestant) Charlie Frederick.
Some have even speculated that Maura was told to walk in at the exact moment Tom Walker was caught bad-mouthing her in Sunday's now infamous row.

"Now I'm thinking Danny's speech must be pre written as a set up to keep us in suspense cos NO WAY can you say 'intellectual conversation' then not pick the god damn scientist," wrote one Twitter user.
"Are people that gullible they think this whole Maura 'overhearing' Tom was an accident such a set up!! Show is so scripted this year its unreal," tweeted another.
Love Island has denied the show is scripted. Either way - it's official, we're hooked.
Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm tonight
