Love Island viewers said they were getting fed up of Laura Anderson’s “childish tantrums” after she laid into Wes Nelson for what many thought was a minor slight.

Laura was left in tears when Wes said during the latest challenge that “arrogance and ignorance” were two of his biggest turn-offs.

Looking angry, she snapped: “You said two things that you find unattractive and a turn-off. Arrogance and ignorance, and you said I was ignorant.

“I’m not ignorant.”

Laura later let off steam in the Beach Hut, saying Wes could be “harsh and rude”, while he tells the boys: “She’s 29 years old, I’m 20, I want to talk about something as opposed to just storming off, coming back, bottling up a load of emotions, then coming back and exploding.”

But the calm chat that Wes is after seems to be elusive.

Their next conversation descended into an argument in which Laura warned Wes he is “on thin ice” for calling her ignorant.

“Do you not think it’s insensitive to sit there in front of everyone in that game and tell me that I’ve been one of the traits that you find off-putting and call me ignorant?” she asked.

Laura’s approach did not go down well with viewers who said she needed to grow up.

“Laura is mad childish, I guess this shows that age really doesn’t mean maturity,” said one person on Twitter, while another said she was “throwing childish tantrums”.

“Laura’s too old for this temper tantrums. All of her conversations sound like something you’d overhear from a 14 yr old school girl,” said another.

Others said Laura spoke to Wes like a parent or teacher.

“Laura speaking to Wes like she’s his year 3 school teacher #loveisland I really think Wes is more mature and reasonable,” said one.

“If Wes is not careful Laura is gonna put him on head teachers report,” joked another.

One viewer said: “I hate how patronising Laura is to Wes, she treats him like a little boy! He’s already got a mum love.”

At the end of Monday night's show, Megan was seen planting a kiss on Wes, something which is sure to cause trouble with Laura, as she correctly guessed that Megan would be the girl Wes would go for aside from herself during Monday's game. 

Megan and Eyal have also both expressed a desire to uncouple.
