Love Island 2017 has been accused of being fake and scripted by one contestant's own mum.

Chris Hughes' mum Val Hughes appeared on ITV's This Morning today to make the shock claim.


She was speaking to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield alongside other mums of the current Islanders about their children on the show.

Discussing her son's actions, Val explained: "What you're seeing now is the real Chris. He's funny, he's very loyal, caring and he's quite endearing in his own way. When he first went in and he sat there saying, 'All the girls fancy me', that's not Chris."

She added: "It makes you wonder if some of it is sort of scripted for them because that, to us, wasn't our Chris."

However a spokesperson for Love Island has insisted that the show isn't scripted at all, you'll be glad to know.

But Chris mum' possibly won't like to hear that...

Meanwhile, talking of Chris' current partner on the show Olivia Attwood, Chris' mum continued: "I think she was quite worried Chris would bring somebody back from the other villa and she stuck with him.


"I know he wouldn't and would stick with her as they fell so hard for each other."

Love Island 2017 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
