Viewers of Love Island were not impressed when Mike Boateng hit Priscilla Anyabu’s head when the program returned with a more subdued episode on Monday after the death of Caroline Flack.
Priscilla clearly became fake during the game where the couples had to vote for each other’s qualities.
After Priscilla read: “Which couple is the most grumpy?” Mike patted her head and said, “That’s what donkey will do,” in a clear reference to the Shrek movie series.

Priscilla immediately shook her head of disapproval while the other islanders cringed at the comment.
Later Jess said in the beach hut: ‘I know Priscilla won’t like that. She’s a strong woman, she doesn’t want to hit her head. Mike will now have to vaccinate harder. “
After the challenge, Jess and Priscilla spoke about Mike’s words and the operations manager made it clear that she was not happy.
Mike felt that something was wrong and approached Priscilla for a chat and told her he was sorry.

He said: “I make you look bad and I try not to do that. I said in my speech that you bring out the best in me and I try to do the same.
“For someone who says and acts like I did, it is very stupid and stupid and I am sorry.”
Priscilla said in the beach hut: ‘I think he was a bit tense, maybe I was a bit too hard. But it seems that when I really talk to him and grill him, it sure sinks. “
After accepting Mike’s apology, Priscilla warned him not to make the same mistake again and said, “I mean, I forgive you, but it can never happen again.”

Several others shared memes to support the model and explained to Mike why he had hurt her feelings.
Elsewhere, many viewers noticed that it was strange to see Monday’s episode because it was the first to be aired since former host Caroline died on Saturday after taking her own life.
Narrator Iain Stirling paid tribute to the presenter at the start of the episode and had a reduced voice function during the episode.

While the comedian normally makes jokes about the antics of the islanders during the show, he had a clearer story in the Monday episode.
A viewer noticed the difference and said: ‘Love Island just doesn’t feel the same anymore. Miss Caroline Flack is sashaying in the villa and her catchy smile. “
Another added: “I know that Caroline would like the show to continue because she loved the show, but it just doesn’t feel the same without her now. She was the show! ”
One fan said, “Love Island doesn’t feel the same anymore, it’s so sad,” while another adds, “The show isn’t the same without Iain’s story.”

In his tribute to her at the start of the show, Iain said: “We are all absolutely destroyed by the tragic news that Caroline, a very beloved member of our Love Island family, has died. Our thoughts with family and friends in this terrible time.
“Caroline and I have been together from the very beginning of Love Island and her passion, warmth and infectious enthusiasm were a crucial part of what brought the show in contact with millions of viewers.
“Like many of you, we are all now trying to come to terms with what has happened. My only hope is that we can all try to be friendlier, always show love and listen to each other.
“Caroline, I want to thank you for all the great times we had to make our favorite show, you were a true friend to me, I’m going to miss you Caz.”
