Love Island fans slam newcomers for using annoying phrase with no ‘originality’

Love Island viewers have already called out contestants for annoying them just one episode into the series.

Fans of the show say the islanders are already using a generic phrase to describe their "type."

It comes after Maya Jama welcomed both men and women into the villa at the same time in a show first.

As contestants settled in, they started to quiz each other on what their ideal match looks like on June 5.

And it wasn't long before several of them mentioned "tall, dark and handsome" in their list of requirements.

Fans took to Twitter to express their frustration with the lack of originality.

One person tweeted: "Let's officially retire 'tall dark handsome' as the type."

A second person said: "Every contestant when asked their type 'tall, dark and handsome" while a third wrote: "PLEASE enough with tall dark and handsome rhetoric let’s rest."

Another said: "Tall. Dark. Handsome' It's enough."

Someone else added: "Petition to ban this whole 'blonde, brunette or tall dark and handsome' thing."

The phrase was famously penned in the first series by Paige Turley which left fans in hysterics after they found out who her ex was.

Paige participated in the first winter series and it wasn't long until singer Lewis Capaldi was identified as her former boyfriend.

A fan wrote on a micro-blog: "So Paige's type is 'tall dark and handsome' but her ex is Lewis Capaldi. That doesn't really add up!"

Another commented: "Paige saying she likes tall dark and handsome, your ex is Lewis Capaldi love. Eh what happened there then??"

A third said: "Can't cope with Paige saying she likes tall dark and handsome when her ex-boyfriend is Lewis Capaldi! Fakeeeee!"

A fourth added: "Paige constantly saying she likes tall, dark and handsome men….. your ex is Lewis Capaldi hun!"
