Piers Morgan calls for Love Island’s Maura to be kicked out and arrested


Piers Morgan definitely isn’t a fan of Love Island and the people who go on it, and he often let’s viewers know about his disdain for the show on Good Morning Britain.

The presenter took to the air this morning to call for Maura Higgins to be removed from the ITV2 show and arrested for her behaviour towards fellow contestant Tommy Fury.

Piers called Maura out for being ‘predatory’, demanding she be ‘dragged out’ of the villa to face legal consequences for her behaviour.


He was referring to a scene where Maura climbed on top of Tommy before trying to force him to kiss her, with Piers saying that if the roles were reversed the man would be arrested.

Piers said:

What part of no means no did Tommy not communicate there? It’s clear premeditated assault. She has to be dragged out of there and arrested. If it was a bloke she’d be out of there, she’d be arrested, career ruined. No means no. Tommy looked like a victim to me.

And the GMB presenter wasn’t the only one to see an issue, with people taking to Twitter after it aired on Friday to discuss the moment:

The incident in question sparked 486 complaints to broadcasting regulator Ofcom.
