Love Island fans were fuming for Casey O’Gorman during Monday’s episode after he was repeatedly pied by the girls in the controversial Snog, Marry, Pie.

The recruitment consultant, 26, had four cream pies smashed into his face after many of the female Islanders were left unimpressed by his treatment of former partner Claudia Fogarty, 28.

Episode scenes echoed last year’s challenge which led to more than 1,500 Ofcom complaints from viewers about how dancer and model Tasha Ghouri, 23, was treated when she was pied three times – with some calling the boys’ behaviour ‘bullying’.

Claudia had fallen for Casey after they were coupled-up just three days before Casa Amor and she remained loyal to him despite his Casa antics, but he has since recoupled with newcomer Rosie Seaford, 28.

And while Claudia was seen in floods of tears over Casey’s decision to move on with someone else, fans insist he did not deserve to be targeted so many times during the challenge.

The game sees each Islander choosing a fellow singleton to snog, another to marry before throwing a cream pie in a third’s face.

Casey chose to snog Rosie and marry Claudia during the challenge in an effort to make peace, but Claudia was left infuriated by his choice.

After many of the girls pied Casey in retaliation for his recent actions, Claudia was the fourth and last in line to pie him, with her telling the group: ‘I decided to pie this boy because you can’t have your cake and eat it and I will be no one’s option.’

The situation left many viewers unimpressed, with fans of the show taking to Twitter to express their feelings. 

One person wrote: ‘So let me get this straight. When Tasha was pied by the boys they all got in trouble for bullying but crickets when it’s for Casey hmmm.’

Another person posted: ‘Remember last year when Tasha got pied and everyone said it was misogynistic and bullying? Where’s this energy gone for Casey?’

While someone else tweeted: ‘The girls are bullying Casey….OFCOM!’

‘The girls need to stop bullying Casey! He’s done absolutely nothing wrong! He was honest with Claudia from the start,’ shared another person.

While someone else commented: ‘A lot of double standards and bullying happening in the villa – I feel bad for Casey. Claudia’s so butt hurt.’

Another viewer tweeted: ‘Personally don’t think Casey did anything wrong and the targeting on him in the challenge was borderline bullying’

Someone else shared: ‘Im sorry but that episode of #loveIsland was uncomfortable to watch. The girls and Claudia were borderline bullying Casey. I love Claudia but I feel like it’s gone too far now. How come Tanya didn’t get the same treatment off everyone when she done worse to Shaq with Martin?’

‘What has Casey actually done?’, asked another viewer. ‘Why didn’t they all pie Lana then.’

Another person wrote: ‘Unless I’ve missed something, I don’t know what Casey’s getting all these pies for? As far as I can see, he’s been respectful and he hasn’t lied. They’re on #loveisland for God’s sake!’

‘Casey doesn’t deserve all these pies,’ wrote another viewer, while someone else shared: ‘Every girl is gonna pie Casey cause auntie Claudia.’

Last year’s challenge led to viewers complainging about how dancer and model Tasha Ghouri, 23, was treated when she was pied three times – with some calling the boys’ behaviour ‘bullying’.

The UK’s media regulator, Ofcom, confirmed to MailOnline the regulator received 1,509 complaints on July 19 – and the majority were about alleged misogynistic behaviour from the male islanders towards the female cast, including in the aftermath of the challenge.

Tasha, who was coupled up with real estate agent Andrew Le Page, had three pies thrown in her face, by entrepreneur Davide Sanclimenti microbiologist Dami Hope, and fishmonger Luca Bish after they had accused her of not having good intentions towards Andrew.

The general consensus was that Tasha did not like Andrew as much as he liked her and that she was stringing him along.

Tasha was the left in tears after the boys pushed the pies into her face during the supposedly light hearted game, with fellow Islanders later agreeing things went ‘too far’.

On top of fans using the word ‘bullying, Love Island alum Amber Gill wrote on social media at the time: ‘Gosh I hope Tasha is OK. These boys are basically bullying her at this point.’

The mother of last year’s Islander Gemma Owen also criticised Luca and Dami’s behaviour towards Tasha, saying it was ‘close to bullying’.

Luca and Dami received harsh criticism from viewers for the way they treated Tasha and Luca’s family members said they were left ‘broken’ over the awful comments they received about him.

Later in the show, Dami and Luca apologised to Tasha with Brighton based fishmonger Luca admitting he was ‘out of line’.

He said: ‘I do actually genuinely feel bad right now for what I said and I’m sorry.’

Echoing his words Dami agreed saying: ‘I do support you and Andrew and obviously we have our opinions about everything that happened.’

Upset: Love Island received over 1,500 Ofcom complaints about 'misogynistic behaviour and bullying' last year which saw Tasha Ghouri (pictured) get pied three times

He continued: ‘I have said to you I thought you always get away with everything so I just thought it would be funny to say ‘you always get away with everything well you’re not getting away with this pie.’

Before adding: ‘I don’t want it to be like I’m ganging up on you. I actually want us to be friends.’

Tasha hugged both men and they agreed to draw a line under the situation, however fans were left unconvinced the apologies was genuine, believing that viewers may have put them up to it.

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