Love Island fans at odds as Camilla and Jonny clash over feminism

It looks like at least one Love Island romance has hit the rocks.

By Julia Hunt

Love Island favourite Camilla Thurlow appears to have lost a few fans by attacking her romantic interest Jonny Mitchell over his views on feminism.

The couple’s blossoming relationship was cemented earlier this week when they shared their first kiss – and Camilla, who was once romantically linked to Prince Harry, established herself as a fan favourite.

But things took a sour turn in Wednesday night’s instalment of the ITV2 reality show when Camilla berated Jonny for saying he preferred to pay for a date’s meals than have her pay for herself.

Camilla said she would feel “so awkward” if she did not pay on a date, asking Jonny: “Shouldn’t we all be feminists? Surely you believe in equality?”

As the row rumbled on, some viewers voiced their support for Camilla, praising her for being “passionate about real-life issues” and calling her “a brilliant role model for girls and women”.

But many people wrote on social media that she had over-reacted.

The spat left viewers concerned the pair’s romance is over for good.

“Absolutely gutted about Camilla and jonny,” said one fan, while another upset viewer confessed: “Feel like my parents have split up with Camilla and Jonny.”
