LOVE Island star Jay Younger spoken out about the bullying row involving Luca Bish and Tasha Ghouri.
The 28-year-old hunk entered the ITV2 villa as a bombshell on day nine, but was dumped 26 days later.
Over the course of the series, Love Island fans slammed the fishmonger, 23 for showing “sickening” behaviour towards Tasha Ghouri, also 23.
Ofcom was bombarded with complaints over alleged misogynistic behaviour on Movie Night, as well as a game of Snog, Marry, Avoid in which Tasha was targeted.
Speaking to The Mirror about what happened, Jay said: "Firstly I would say I don't condone any misogynistic behaviour and I was glad I wasn't in the villa when these kind of comments were being made.
"The viewer does only see a small section of the episode and sometimes life is different outside of what really happens.
