Love Island's Dami called out for awkward backtrack after dig at Davide and Ekin Su

Love Island fans are not impressed with Dami Hope, thanks to the ex-islander's cheeky comments on social media.

Dami, who appeared on last year's offering of the ITV2 show, appeared to take a cheeky swipe at Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti as he live-tweeted last night's episode of Love Island.

The reality TV star quickly backtracked on his initial tweet - claiming it was an observation about Casa Amor instead - but that only irked fans more, thanks to Dami's infamous shenanigans during his stint in the famous villa.

Dami - who is still loved up with Indiyah Polack - took to Twitter on Valentine's Day to share his thoughts on the current crop of islanders, as the winter series in South Africa enters its Casa Amor era.

It was a bombshell episode of Love Island on Tuesday night, with not one couple looking safe as eyes began to thanks to the introduction of the ultimate loyalty test.

ITV2 viewers watched in horror as farmer Will Young locked lips with Layal Al-Momani, despite the TikTok sensation seemingly being loved-up with Jessie Wynter.

As the latest installment from the villa aired, Dami took to his Twitter page to tweet: "Still don’t know how we lost last year, definitely rigged #loveIsland."

Fuming Twitter users assumed Dami was referencing the fact Ekin-Su and Davide were crowned winners of the summer series last year, with Dami and Indiyah finishing in third place.

"well dami im afraid to tell u this but…it was kinda on u bud. y’all almost had it," one Love Island fan told Dami on Tuesday, with another adding: "Man already forgot how he moved at casa."

A third quipped: "Summer was not over remember ??"

Dami and Indiyah's relationship hit a stumbling block thanks to Casa Amor, with Dami re-coupling with Summer Botwe and Indiyah returning with Deji Adeniyi.

During the explosive post Casa Amor re-coupling, Dami famously declared "Summer isn't over" but found his way back to Indiyah before the series final.

As fans accused Dami of taking a swipe at Davide and Ekin-Su, the Irish hunk was forced to clarify he was actually tweeting about the raunchy race challenge taking place during Tuesday's update from the South African villa.

"I’m talking about the challenge pls pls boys vs girls at Casa [laughing emojis]," Dami told his Twitter followers as his original tweet caused a storm online.

"Dami you're not allowed to tweet about casa amor, come back when its over #ptsd," one fan replied to the reality TV star's clarification.

Despite their Casa Amor drama, Dami and Indiyah are still going strong almost one year on from first meeting in the Spanish villa.

As the couple celebrated their first Valentine's Day together on Tuesday, Dami pulled out all the stops to impress his girlfriend - decorating their home with red balloons, roses, rose petals and candles.

Indiyah was clearly moved by the gesture, as she took to her Instagram Stories to share snaps of the sweet surprise, and write: "I’m in awe. I love you baby @damihope."
