Love Island's Shaq calls out 'disgusting' Martin after Tanya 'sex comments'

The Love Island reunion show got off to an explosive start as Shaq Muhammad confronted Martin Akinola over degrading comments he made about Shaq's girlfriend Tanya Manhenga.

Tanya and Shaq placed fourth in the final of the ITV show and joined host Maya Jama on Sunday night's reunion to discuss their first week out of the villa.

Maya then invited Martin onto the sofa to look back over the trio's love triangle.

Things got heated as Shaq slammed Martin for the 'disgusting' comments he made about Tanya during an appearance on the Reality podcast.

Shaq suggested Martin had degraded Tanya with his comments after he claimed he would be "f***ing your girls".

Speaking on the podcast, Martin claims he told Shaq: "On the outside out I would be f***ing your girls in ways you can't imagine."

He said he spoke to Shaq about a conversation he had with Tanya while still in the villa: "I told her she didn't love you and she didn't agree or disagree with that.

"He was crying that night and everyone thought he was crying because of the Movie Night, no he was crying because of what I told him."

During the Love Island reunion, Martin insisted his comments had been taken out of context.

Maya was forced to jump in and stop the heated discussion as she said they could discuss the situation further after the show.

Fans quickly took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Shaq confronting Martin.

"Shaq and Tanya have every RIGHTT to be upset at Martin for talking about Tanya like that," one viewer insisted.

Another said: "Martin deserved more lashings but very glad tanya & shaq got him to stutter an apology on live TV," while a third wrote: "Martin is STUTTERING he is stressed."

Another suggested the group should now move on from the drama, saying: "This segment between #SHANYA & Martin was awkward to watch, hopefully they can all squash it now and live happily ever after."
