Love Island viewers have branded the show a fix after a rule change saw Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames saved from the axe two weeks in a row.
Anna and Jordan were saved by their fellow islanders after a public voted landed them in the bottom two alongside Michael Griffiths and Francesca Allen.
But instead of the public having the final say on which pair were sent packing, the decision fell into the hands of their friends.
Sunday night’s dumping saw the newly-official Anna and Jordan fall into the bottom three for the second time, with the power being given to their fellow contestants instead of being dictated by viewers.
Many viewers believes it would have been pharmacist Anna and model Jordan on a flight home if the public had the say.
One took to Twitter to write: “Total FIX. NOT even the first time Anna & Jordan have been in the bottom 2, if it was down to the Public vote would Michael & Francesca still be the one’s to leave? Feel so sorry for Francesca, she NEVER really got a proper chance to find that special connection.” [sic]
A second said: “This is doing my head in. Obviously everyone wants Anna to go! Why ask the public to vote when the islanders are getting the final say? If she makes it to the final then its clearly a fix. No one likes the b***h.” [sic]
A third vented: “Dumping was a fix becos producers know public would have voted out Anna and Jordan that’s why they left it to the islanders becos they knew they wouldn’t vote them out. Unfortunately Jordan is tied to Anna poor guy so… #AnnaandJordanout.” [sic]
The claims come as viewers prepare to watch a baffled Anna air her confusion over the public backlash against her after landing herself in the bottom three alongside new boyfriend Jordan.
After Michael and Joanna were dumped from the island, Anna and Jordan were left at risk after receiving fewer votes than the other couples in the villa.
Reflecting on the dramatic recoupling on Monday’s show, Anna tells Jordan in the lounge: “This is the third time. How are we in the bottom three when we are the second strongest couple?” Jordan is equally as baffled, replying: “I don’t actually know.”
Reassuring his new girlfriend, Jordan adds: “Don’t worry yourself about what other people think.
“What is the point in letting it get us down? When we get out of here, we’re going to have fun!”
Jordan then says in the Beach Hut: “Of course, being in the bottom three isn’t nice. It does upset me but I’m not going to let it get me down.”
Love Island continues nightly at 9pm on ITV2.
