Love Island fans left squeamish during ‘gross’ Lip Service challenge on ITV2 show

Love Island fans have been left squeamish during a "gross" Lip Service challenge on Monday's episode of the show that saw Islanders exchange liquid between their mouths.

The boys and girls were seen standing in lines opposite each other across a multi-coloured dance floor.

The boys were tasked with filling their mouths from a cocktail dispenser before sliding across the floor on their stomachs and transferring the liquid into the girls' mouth that they were coupled up with.

In turn, the girl had to spit out the liquid into a giant cocktail glass, before the couple with the most amount of it were crowned the winners.

New couple Luca and Danica ended up reigning victorious.

Speaking in the beach hut about the winners, Ekin-Su sat alongside her partner Jay as she said: "I know Danica's technique, she was doing this…" as she motioned opening her mouth wide and cupping her hands around it.

Ekin-Su continued: "As soon as I knew what she was doing, I copied".

Indiyah said: "That is the worst thing I've ever done in my life. Never again!"

The game made for pretty uncomfortable viewing, and people were not shy about taking to Twitter to call the challenge "gross" and "disgusting".

One person wrote: "F*****g DISGUSTING!! they need to get rid of this lip service transfer of food/drink challenge".

Another wrote: "This lip service game is gross", whilst another commented: "Sorry but what the F**K?? Lip Service???? Disgusting".

Someone else wrote: "this needs to stop!!! Stop doing the lip service challenge! This nation has to be reminded how to wash their hands in the height of the pandemic."

The hit ITV2 show had come under fire in previous years for its infamous messy eating challenges, in which contestants transferred food between each other's mouths.

The show's executive producer, Mike Spencer, had confirmed that the challenge would not be returning, after many of the show’s fans complained that it was "gross".

Answering a question in Q&A on Reddit at the end of May, one fan said: "Why the spitting food challenges. I beg youse to stop, such a waste of food! I really think doing challenges with incentives or couple building activities would be so much better.”

Mike replied, writing: "We are moving away from the food challenges as previously seen so hopefully that sorts that one.”

Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2.
