The 'Shout out to My Ex' hitmaker took to her band's Twitter page to air her disgust that out of 12 new members who entered the villa on Thursday night's (28.06.18) episode, they all look similar, and she has boycotted the show as a result.

She wrote on Twitter: "How many weeks in and we are yet to see hardly any diversity in @LoveIsland I'm tuning off! #disappointed #diversity x Leigh [sic]"

The 26-year-old singer's rant comes after Olly Alexander called on dating shows like the ITV2 programme to start featuring LBGTQ+ singletons.

The 'Sanctify' hitmaker - who is openly gay - would love to see lesbian, gay, and bisexual contestants represented, as well as three-way relationships, also known as thruples, which he would love to experience being in.

The 27-year-old singer said: "Dating shows should exist for people who aren't straight.

"They're out there, there aren't enough of them. Whether you try and squeeze a format that already works into something else. I don't know.

"But I think the more we try and represent different kinds of relationships like polyamory, like being in a thruple.

"I myself want to be in a thruple. I want to see what that feels like."

However, bosses of the series are one step ahead of the 'Desire' hitmaker, and are keen to cast gay and lesbian contestants.

Producer Richard Cowles has confirmed the makers of the programme - which landed its first-ever Reality & Constructed Factual TV BAFTA last month - are "open" to having another "dedicated version" of the series for same-sex couples, which could see more than one 'Love Island' air on an annual basis.

He recently told BANG Showbiz: "We've had bisexual people in the show before. It's a dating show and what makes that quite difficult is you need everyone to fancy everyone, so it's quite hard to get people who are gay and heterosexual in the same place, because simply enough, they don't fancy each other.

"I think we'd have to have a dedicated show for that. We're open to everything. We'd always try to include everyone. Absolutely, we'd consider two series a year."
