‘The producers must be struggling for content’: Twitter memes pour in as viewers blast new Love Island series for being ‘boring’
It’s only day three of the new Love Island series – and viewers are already labelling it as ‘boring’.
Wednesday night’s episode got off to a slow start, following on after Tom Clare ruffled feathers and coupled up with Olivia Hawkins, leaving Will Young single and at risk.
But viewers were still not impressed, saying the new winter season seems ‘forced and scripted’.

Taking to Twitter as events unfolded, one viewer wrote: ‘Look Love Island is usually boring during the first week but even the chat is DEAD. The producers must be struggling for content’.
Another chimed in: ‘All these couples have become far too attached to each other far too quickly and it’s boring’
Other viewers claimed that boring or not, they were still going to tune in.
Sharing their view that couples had become too comfortable and that scenes seemed forced, another commented: ‘The standard of conversation in this Love Island is lover than usual, right? They’re all so boring.’
‘Ignoring all my responsibilities just to watch another boring episode’, one user said.
In agreement, someone else wrote: ‘Another boring episode tonight… am I still going to watch? yes’.
Love Island fans were equally unimpressed yesterday after Maya Jama, 28, was absent from the show’s second episode on Tuesday – declaring the series ‘boring’ without her.
While the singeltons battled it out in their first challenge, Maya jetted back to London before returning to South Africa later this week.
Taking to Twitter one fan bemoaned: ‘Where was Maya Jama tonight I missed her’.
Another wrote: ‘Can we have a Love Island where there’s no contestants, just an hour of Maya Jama being Maya Jama please’.
While a third tweeted: ‘This is so boring, where’s Maya Jama’.
Fans in their droves asked where she was with one conjuring up his own alternative: ‘We need a plot twist where Maya Jama can somehow become a bombshell or something. We wanna see more’.
Maya took over hosting duties from Laura Whitmore and has become an instant hit with viewers.

Meanwhile, Love Island fans declared their love for Will Young on Wednesday after he was left single following bombshell Tom ‘stealing’ Olivia from him.
Despite being put in a vulnerable position, Will took the recoupling in his stride, telling Tom that he believed he and Olivia were a better match.
And taking to Twitter as events unfolded on screen, viewers declared they were ‘rooting’ for him, with others begging producers to send in a ‘nice girl’ for the farmer.

One fan shared: ‘Can’t lie I have a soft spot for Will’, with another adding: ‘Pls I’m rooting for farmer Will.’
‘Awww but Will is adorable right now’ gushed a third watcher.
While another said: ‘I’m rooting for Will tbh. Bless him.’
Sharing their view that they’d love a bombshell girl to arrive that would be suited to him, another commented: ‘Please they need to send a nice sweet girl for Will.’
‘They need to put a cute outdoorsy girl in this villa for farmer Will’ agreed an additional person.
With another adding: ‘Will is actually funny I hope they put in an ‘unreal’ farmer girl for him.’
