Last night (June 20), Islanders had to spit cocktail ingredients into each other’s mouths, with the aim of filling a large cocktail glass.

ED! has contacted reps for Love Island for comment.
The food and drink challenges have been a staple of Love Island over the years, with the ‘Spit the Roast’ game being one of the most widely hated. It involves spitting the ingredients of a roast dinner into other contestants’ mouths – all in 30-degree heat. But fans and contestants alike find them a bit much.
During a Reddit Q&A, executive producer Mike Spencer was asked by a user: “Please can you stop making people put food into each others mouth.”
Spencer responded: “We are stepping away from the food challenges as we know them.”

Love Island cliffhanger
Fans were also threatening to complain to Ofcom about the show’s use of cliffhangers at the end of every episode.
The most recent episode had a particularly gripping ending after the Islanders got a text asking for them to gather around the fire pit.
They were told that the public had been voting for their favourite girl and boy in the villa – those with the fewest were at risk of being dumped.
The three boys with the lowest votes were Ikenna, Jay and Andrew. The three girls were Tasha, Amber and Ekin-Su.
One boy and one girl will be going home tonight, based on how the public voted.
Love Island airs on ITV2 tonight, Tuesday June 21, at 9pm.
