Love Island viewers brand Mitch a ‘hypocrite’ as he tells Scott ‘not to lead Abi on’ after rival refuses to apologise for calling him a ‘k**bhead’

Love Island viewers branded Mitch Taylor a ‘hypocrite’ after he told Scott Ven-der-sluis ‘not to lead’ Abi Moores on and hurt her feelings. 

On Tuesday’s show, Scott, 22, branded Mitch a ‘kn** head’ after Mitchel, 26, smugly accepted yet another Graftie Award for his ‘Mad Moves’.

The two rivals had a tense chat as the aftermath of the bombshell The Grafties awards rumbled on in Wednesday night’s show. 

Mitch told him: ‘Firstly, I was sat up there taking the p**s a bit but don’t call me a kn**head in front of everyone – that was embarrassing.’ 

Scott replied: ‘I called you a k**bhead. I’m not going apologise for that. Couples were having a serious and you did take the p**s a bit. You did become a bit more personal.’

Mitch told him: ‘I was sat up there taking the p**s a bit. Don’t call me names you with Abi you’re not interested. What you need to do is be honest with your feelings. 

‘How long will you say “I will slow things down” when I’m not interested?’

Scott hit back: ‘Just because I don’t sell people the dream after two days, saying I’m going to take them to the Maldives and all that.’

Mitchel told the semi-pro footballer: ‘Scott, I will only say I will I’m wanting to slow down a bit you’re not bothered. stop leading her on.’

Viewers watching took to Twitter to ask why Mitchel was lecturing Scott on not hurting Abi’s feelings, when he had done it himself.  

One wrote: ‘Lol ‘I am not going to take her to the Maldives after two days’. 

Another added: ‘What is Mitch’s problem?’

It’s off! Abi and Scott later called off their romance 

‘Mitch is delusional. Don’t talk about her feelings when you’re hurting her feelings.’

Others defended Mitchel for ‘speaking the truth’, with Scott ending it with Abi later in the show.  

‘Scott is backtracking here fully and Mitch may be really messy but he at least liked Abi, he needs to just be honest with her because it’s stringing her along,’ wrote a fan. 

‘Mitch speaking facts for once,’ said another. 

Mitch and Scott had an explosive row at The Grafties. 

During his rambling speech, Mitch said: ‘I am proud to get my second award to tonight’ before declaring himself a ‘better man’ after being exposed for playing Abi off against Ella B. 

He then asked ‘Has everyone else got anything to say?’ and when they didn’t he quipped: ‘That’s what I thought’.

As shouted at to sit down Mitch snapped: ‘Shut up’ before Scott declared: ‘Has anyone ever told you you’re a f****** kn** head?’.

Mitch, furious at the idea of being called a ‘k***head’ took a swipe at Scott and Abi’s relationship, only for Scott to ask the fellow singletons “Am I wrong?”.

As Scott quipped: ‘You’re still a k** head’ before his rival declared himself ‘The king’.

Taking to Twitter one viewer wrote: ‘Thank you Scott!!! …Mitch is such a d*** head!!’.

While a second wrote: ‘Thank you Scott for saying what we were all thinking. Mitch is an embarrassment with no shame, I’ve got all the entertainment I need out of him but he himself is the joke and needs to go’

A third said: ‘Gwaaan Scott’ while another added: ‘Scott OMG!’.

Someone else commented: ‘Scott thank you for saying what I have been thinking every episode, we love you’.

With another viewer saying: ‘Best moment in love island THANK YOU SCOTT’.

Love Island continues on ITV2 and ITVX on Wednesday at 9pm.

OCCUPATION: Musical Theatre Performer and Social Media Creator

WHY LOVE ISLAND? I think it’s ideal timing and the perfect way to find someone. I don’t go out and party and I don’t use dating apps, I’m actually quite old-fashioned, so there’s no better way to meet someone than by going into a Villa in the sun with the potential ‘one’ in there.

DO YOU HAVE ANY CLAIMS TO FAME? With my job being in social media, I’ve had some amazing opportunities to go on press trips and I’ve actually been out to the ‘Love Island’ Villas in Mallorca and South Africa. Having the experience to walk around both was amazing but to now actually live in the Villa is going to be incredible.

NAME: Lochan Nowacki

AGE: 25

FROM: Windsor

OCCUPATION: Account Manager

WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO GO INTO CASA AMOR? I feel like I’m excited because a lot of the people in relationships aren’t fully secure. I know the type of person I am as well, so I feel like I can turn heads. I’m not going to be disrespectful and I’m proud of my morals as a person. I’m confident that I can go in and not necessarily stir it up, but open the ladies’ eyes to what could be a better couple.

HOW DO YOU PLAN ON TURNING PEOPLE’S HEADS? I have a top three in my mind already, so I’ll probably be pulling them for chats quite quickly and letting them know they’re the top three people I want to speak to. But I’m confident I’m a people person, I’m not going in there to act any differently to how I am with my own friends. I back myself that people will see that and see my good looks and bish, bash, bosh.

NAME: Abi Moores 

AGE: 25

FROM: Hampshire 

OCCUPATION: Flight Attendant 

WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO GO INTO CASA AMOR? I want to find a boyfriend! Everyone on Love Island is so sexy. I feel like the kind of person that would do Love Island is definitely the type of person I could be in a relationship with.

HOW DO YOU PLAN ON TURNING PEOPLE’S HEADS? Having good eye contact. Everyone says my eyes are my best feature. My plan is to gauge how they’re feeling. I always call it my ‘spidey senses’. I’m a very good judge of character, I can see through people and see their energy. If they fancy me I should be able to gauge it quite well, so I should know who to graft with and who to leave to the side.

I have a fiery side too, if I think someone is in the wrong or they overstep the line, I’m not afraid to go tell them. In terms of my looks, I’d say I’m a 5ft2” pocket rocket.
