Samira was the only black bitch in the series of participants in the 2018 series and during last year's series, the show was heavily criticized by viewers, who complained that the show lacks real racial diversity among the participants.

After the artist's departure from the West End, after she had withdrawn from the villa when her love interest was postponed, it became apparent that scenes between the couple had not been broadcast.

Yewande & # 39; s friend from school, Eileen Top, revealed to the publication: & # 39; We discussed it because she went, "Should I do it? Shouldn't I do it?" I said, "Go for it." & # 39;

Hesitant: Yewande & # 39; had many reservations, what would people think and of course racism is what we see now. It is ridiculous. It's 2019 and people say really terrible things & # 39;

She continued: & # 39; She had many reservations, what people would think and of course racism is what we see now. It is ridiculous. It's 2019 and people say really terrible things. & # 39;

Eileen added: & # 39; But she thought it could be different. She is black and proud and she will not let anyone stop her. & # 39;

MailOnline has contacted a Love Island representative for comments.

Yewande previously discussed her decision to participate in the ITV2 series with the beauty herring: & # 39; I went to college when I was 16 and have been in the industry since graduating and I feel like I'm an adult so soon and I don't get the most experiences that my friends have done.

& # 39; My friends traveled and did exciting things. I wanted to do something memorable and something else, I thought, Love Island. I've always been a fan and always found it interesting, exciting and different. & # 39;

However, she added that she will not leave her career forever: "I don't really think I'm leaving it, I just feel like I'm taking a break. I have a post-grad so I can go back and I'd like to think that I can go back when I'm ready.

Yewande revealed that she has no set-type, but if she had to choose her favorite male participant from last year's series, she would have chosen Jack Fowler.

New Experience: Yewande previously discussed her decision to participate in the ITV2 series: & # 39; I feel that I have grown up so quickly and I have not had the most experiences my friends had & # 39;

In detail what she was looking for, she said: & # 39; I would really like to have a good conversation, laugh all the time, jokes and good vibes. & # 39;

But if she does meet her dream man, she won't do & # 39; bits & # 39; as she joked that her mother would & # 39; shoot her & # 39; if she had sex on television.

Yewande said: & # 39; I won't do bits! My mother shoots at me, she will replace all the locks and will not leave me at home. & # 39;

However, she said her family was very excited to go to the show and added: & # 39; My mother is delighted, I thought she was going to hate it, but when I first told her, she became the biggest Love Island fan ever.

& # 39; My father still doesn't quite understand, when I left, he said, "Have fun, goodbye," he has no idea. I haven't told my sisters yet, because they're so young and I feel like they're telling the whole village.

& # 39; They are the biggest fans. I was packing up and trying this black polka dot dress and they said, "Oh, that's so beautiful, it looks like something people would wear on Love Island," I thought "Oh really?!"

Although her family strongly supports her decision, Yewande confessed that they were very shocked that she decided to apply.

She said: "My mother was shocked, out of my sisters, I am the most reserved, so she never thought I would request such a thing and I think everyone will be shocked."

# Going inside pushes myself out of my comfort zone, but it is not a huge group of people and I live with them and you get to know people while you go, so it may not be so hard for me to let go and have fun I think. & # 39;

For the purpose of finding love, it seemed unusual for viewers to be unable to invest in the romantic journey of the West End star with Frankie Foster because they could not see it on their TV screens – especially if they were a spent the night together in the hideout.

At that time, Love Island said in a statement Digital Spy: & # 39; As we said before, it is not possible to show everything that is happening in the villa due to lack of time. There are a number of pairs whose time is not shown in the Hideaway.

Angry: Fans of the show expressed their disappointment last year with other groups that were not represented at the show

& # 39; It is always our intention to produce a show that is an honest and accurate representation of life in the villa. & # 39;

During last year's series, the show was heavily criticized by viewers, who complained that the show has no real racial diversity on the long list of participants.

Fans of the ITV2 reality show took Twitter in large numbers to express their concerns about the lack of different ethnic backgrounds being displayed – and also about body types.

One viewer wrote on the microblog site: & # 39; You are bored with every new girl who is a white, skinny long-haired blonde or brunette in #Loveisland … Just because you have Samira in there doesn't mean you have the diversity profession. & # 39;

Based on the similar backgrounds that the participants share – including the parts of the UK where they come from – one viewer wrote: & Love Island must bring in girls of color / ethics. All this to bring in these Essex / Welsh white girls becomes JOKE.

& # 39; The show needs some diversity. Samira is the only girl of color. We also need body diversity for fat girls. & # 39;

We live in a real world where some women and men are not all white or straight or have a built or thin body, & # 39; continued the viewer in a separate tweet.

& # 39; This show has no diversity or sense of reality, I understand it is a TV show and this is what they consider perfect, but that is not real. & # 39;

Throwback: the spectators were upset that Samira & # 39; s complete romantic journey was not shown, but that much attention was paid to Dr. Alex who was unhappy in love

Another addition: & # 39; We need to see more diversity in races and body shapes for the next Love Island series … How do you have 10 people in that house and only three of them or two are color? & # 39;

Meanwhile, a viewer brought forward the fact that fans of the show were in love with the unfortunate Dr. Alex George to find love, while his partner Samira – who still needs to be monitored by potential buyers – has not received such support.

& # 39; Interesting how many people don't see things from Samira & # 39; s point of view & # 39 ;, the Twitter user commented. & # 39; The entire villa rooted to Alex to find someone, but nobody cares about Samira. Just an observation. & # 39;

Another viewer took an ironic approach to the diversity row by sharing a snapshot of Rosie Williams in the Beach Hut, alongside the caption: Big enough for the diversity of @LoveIsland this year!

& # 39; You will not believe how important it is to have people with differently shaped eyebrows represented in mainstream media. & # 39;

MailOnline then contacted a representative for Love Island for comments.
