Louis Tomlinson has said Love Island does not send a good message to young people.

The One Direction heartthrob said he had previously “made the mistake” of watching the ITV2 dating programme but no longer tunes in.

He opened up on Twitter when a fan asked whether he was watching the current series, which was the subject of almost 200 complaints to Ofcom last week.

Made the mistake of watching previous years but enough is enough

“I’m not,” Tomlinson tweeted.

“Made the mistake of watching previous years but enough is enough.

“It’s not a good message for the younger people watching.”

Last week Love Island’s tense recoupling episode saw a number of islanders choose to couple up with other people, prompting arguments and causing upset.

The aftermath instalment sparked 196 complaints to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom.
