Laura Whitmore hits back at claims she 'humiliated' Love Island contestant

Laura Whitmore has hit back at a claim she tried to "humiliate" contestant Remi on last night's episode of Love Island's spin-off show, Aftersun.

Remi, who was the latest Love Islander to be dumped, appeared on the live show where he spoke to Bray woman Laura about his time in the villa, before he was botted out on Friday.

Gemma chose Davide in the recoupling after Luca was taken by new girl Danica which left the decision of Remi or Ikenna down to Indiyah.

She chose Ikenna and Remi was sent packing.

And appearing on Aftersun, Remi was asked to perform a rap by Laura and duly obliged.

However, some viewers questioned why a "nervous" Remi was made get up and sing in front of everyone.

One disgruntled fan said: "Hope #LoveIsland supports Remi He looked broken on #Loveislandaftersun Asking him to rap was done in bad faith and to humiliate. I thought @thewhitmore & crew were supposed to BE KIND."

But host Laura wasn't happy with the comment and replied on Twitter on Monday morning saying: "Remi is a rapper and asked in good faith in advance if he’d rap and prepare something which he did. Live Telly is nerve wrecking, believe me, so maybe he was a bit nervous but he deserved to have his time. Also I want to make Remi & Afia happen!"

Although Love Island legends Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran were left cringing at Remi Lambert's exit rap as they appeared as guests on the show.

Fans quickly took to social media to share their reaction after the awkward blunder.

On Twitter, one wrote: "They got Remi to do a rap on after sun… and he forgot his bars again."


"Remi's gonna make a whole song about this LMAO," a third added.

A fourth penned: "Chloe and Toby's face when Remi rapped."
