They continued: ‘We didn’t want to have to post something like this but please remember that bullying somebody over an hour episode of a televised show is damaging.

‘Bullying and negative comments can be extremely harmful to someone’s mental health and sometimes in worse cases can be fatal. We will not stand for bullying and harassment.’

‘If you have nothing nice to say, keep it to yourself,’ they concluded. The note was signed by Amber’s sister Haylie, her friends Hannah and Taz, and her wider family.

Amber and Ikenna were both brutally dumped from Love Island on Tuesday night’s dramatic episode. 

The public had been voting for their least favourite girl and boy which left Monday night’s show on a nail-biting cliff hanger as the contestants gathered around the fire pit to learn their fate. 

The boys with the fewest votes were Ikenna, Jay Younger and Andrew Le Page while the girls with the fewest votes were Tasha Ghouri, Amber and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

The girls were left devastated as Amber left, with Tasha saying she felt ‘heartbroken’ that she was dumped, while the boys lamented how the villa wouldn’t be the same without Ikenna. 

Speaking as he left the villa Ikenna said: ‘I will miss the boys and Dami so much and I wish them all the best!’

Amber then added: ‘I will miss all of them, I will miss the chats with Dami and I have no regrets over my time in the villa at all.’
