Lots of Love Island fans are saying they'll boycott the show because of the producers' decision to bring in Jack Fincham's ex-girlfriend, Ellie Jones, but some are choosing to boycott the show for an entirely different reason.

"I'm tuning off! #disappointed #diversity x Leigh."

An article was also retweeted by the band's account, which talked about viewers being unhappy that all the contestants looked alike, and all boasted the same lean and toned body type.

It seems like Little Mix aren't the only Love Island viewers to believe there's an issue.

Fans of the show flocked to Twitter to vent very similar frustrations, and accuse the show's producers of choosing the same 'type' of Islander.

One complained: "I feel like uk reality shows make such a mockery of black girls, idc what y'all say.

"Why do they always hire just one? Why are they so overlooked when they're pretty?

"It was the same thing in the last season of Ex On The Beach...It really is heartbreaking #loveisland [sic]."

Another raged: "I understand I can't speak on behalf of those of colour, but #loveisland has opened my eyes to the huge problem in society. Diversity is needed. Acceptance is needed."

The issues don't just stop at race and skin colour though.

People are also calling for a more diverse range of body-types, with a viewer venting: "No wonder girls are so insecure and have self-confidence [issues] about their bodies these days when you have girls with 'perfect bodies' in the villa but no curvy girls.

"Society is f*ck*d up. #loveisland #society"

Love Island continues, 9pm on ITV2.
