Love Island fires key show part in shake-up, after it was called 'gross by fans'

Mike Spencer, Love Island's executive producer, addressed online questions and concerns in a Reddit Q&A

After being called "gross" by Love Island fans, Love Island bosses announced they will be ending eating challenges this year for the first-time.

The ITV2 hit show will be back on June 6th with a new lineup of singleton hotties.

Executive producer Mike Spencer has said that there is one thing that will not be back.

Reddit user, one of his questions was: "Why are you having spitting food problems?" It is such a waste of food, I beg you to stop! It would be much more beneficial to do challenges that include incentives or couple building activities.

He said, "We are moving away form the food challenges that we have previously seen so hopefully that sorts that."

Also, the producer was asked if Islanders would like to be filmed while eating.

Islanders are allowed to take a break from cameras while they eat their breakfast, lunch, and dinner, unless it is part in a dating meet and greet or task. They cannot discuss the show.

One fan asked: "We often see the islanders eating breakfast together, snacking throughout the day... What do they eat for dinner?" It is likely that there are chefs and a crew of production staff on the island. Are you all eating together?

He replied, "Yes, this is a very popular question. The Islanders make their breakfasts and have us cater for lunch and dinner. There is a wide variety of food available, from delicious fresh salads to hearty roast dinners on Sundays. They still enjoy a roast dinner, even in the heat.

Many fans also asked him if he would make the lineup more diverse after previous criticisms.

A fan asked: "Will there ever be an attempt to show actual diversity (Asians for one and not South Asians for two) in this and future seasons?" It's not diversity to throw a few black people into a sea of whites.

He replied, "We are always striving for diversity and representation on the show, so we try to cast the net wide during the casting process." "Our casting and application process is open to all and we strive to reflect the diversity and age of our audience." Our most important criteria is that all applicants are single and seeking love.
