    Since returning to the UK Liberty has refused to rule out claims ex boyfriend Jake was “playing a game” in the villa after he was slammed by furious fans.

    MEGAN BARTON HANSON GETS BOTOX INJECTIONS IN HER BUM SAYING ‘IT ISN’T JUST FOR WRINKLES’

    The Love Island star shared a video to Instagram showing a needle being plunged into her bottom as she wore a black thong bodysuit.

    In the clip a man sterilises the area and can be heard saying: “I want you to tense your muscle … and relax.”

    Before pushing the needle into Megan‘s skin he says: “Sharp scratch!”

    The candid star has spoken openly in the past about her love of surgery and procedures.

    When she was a teen she experienced bullying that led to her going under the knife for the first time.

    Megan, 27, admitted: “I first went under the knife at the age of 17, when I had surgery to get my ears pinned back …

    “My insecurities led to me having even more work done. Two years after the ear op I started having filler in my lips, and I went on to have rhinoplasty and a boob job, as well as many other procedures.

    “I don’t know how much I’ve spent over the years, but it’s a lot.”

    Fans flocked to Twitter to share their view that Laura was out of her depth as a presenter, asking producers to give the gig to someone else next year after she failed to impress.

    She has now opened up about the incident in a new interview, sheepishly confessing: “There were times I dealt with it completely wrongly, and everyone unfortunately got to see that.”

    FAYE & TEDDY ATTENDED LIBERTY’S 22ND BIRTHDAY PARTY

    The pair were attending their fellow Islander Liberty’s VIP 22nd birthday party at Jin Bo Law rooftop bar in Aldgate, London.

    It came just one night after this year’s ITV2 cast got back together for the controversial Love Island reunion, which aired on Sunday night.

    During the show, viewers were horrified when host Laura Whitmore downplayed Faye’s explosive argument with boyfriend Teddy – which triggered 25,000 Ofcom complaints.

    Faye berated, mocked, and screamed at her partner in the distressing scenes – which became the most complained about Love Island moment in the show’s six-year history.

    However, during the reunion it was nominated for a light-hearted award, with Laura dismissing the bust-up as a “minor squabble”.

    LAURA WHITMORE SNAPS BACK AT LOVE ISLAND FANS ON INSTAGRAM AFTER THEY SLAMMED ‘BORING’ REUNION SHOW

    Laura Whitmore has faced further backlash after snapping at Love Island fans on Instagram following complaints about the reunion show.

    The “boring” programme, which aired on Sunday night, was heavily criticised by viewers for a multitude of reasons.

    In addition, Laura was accused of being a “hypocrite” and “disrespectful” for quizzing Lillie on rumours about her and footballer Jack Grealish – and unimpressed fans begged for the host to be replaced next year.

    Many claimed that it was “awkward” to watch, while others were outraged that Kaz and Tyler were the only finalists not invited onto the sofa for an interview – instead speaking from their spot in the audience.

    FANS EXPRESS THEIR ANGER OVER THE ‘WORST REUNION’

    Fans of the show have not been left content with the reunion show.

    One wrote: “You reunion show sucked. It was awkward, uncomfortable, and bias. 4 finalist couples and you don’t invite Kaz and Tyler on the stage for a chat?! You sugarcoat Faye’s behavior like it was just a bad day?”

    Another wrote: “Worst reunion show I’ve seen !!”

    A third chimed in, writing: “I have never been so bored during a reunion I’m sorry”

    LOVE ISLAND’S FAYE HORRIFIED AS SHE FINALLY WATCHES HER MOVIE NIGHT MELTDOWN – AND AGREES WITH OFCOM COMPLAINTS

    Faye shouted at pretty much every male in the villa, but saved much of her rage for now-boyfriend Teddy Soares.

    It lead to watchdog Ofcom receiving almost 25,000 complaints, and on Sunday’s reunion show, Faye finally saw the clip for the first time.

    Asked how she felt about it afterwards by host Laura Whitmore, Faye said: “I mean, there would have been another complaint if I’d watched it back, so…from myself yeah, it’s not nice.

    “I would have been complaining about it too, not one of my finest moments.”

    The former estate agent was seen at the wheel of a car in tonight’s special episode of the ITV2 show after inviting Teddy to see her home county.

    The pair held hands in the car as Faye gave the 27-year-old a whistle stop tour – pointing out the chip shop that she once got fired from and commenting on the cute sheep in a field.

    But some viewers were screaming at their tellies over the 26-year-old’s driving.

    One person reacted on Twitter, writing: “put your seat belt on properly 🤦🏼🤦🏼🙆🏼🙆🏼 #loveisland”

    Another sniped: “Nice to see Faye abiding by the laws of this country and wearing her seat belt properly #LoveIsland”

    REJECTED AGAIN?

    Love Island fans were furious earlier this week as Jake told Liberty he was "too busy" to pursue a relationship outside the villa.

    The pair arranged to meet at a rooftop bar in London as part of the reunion show, with Kaz joining Liberty for support.

    When Jake arrived she left them to it, but Liberty immediately confronted Jake about him not being in contact with her since leaving the villa.

    "It’s hard, obviously I still have feelings for you," admitted Liberty. "I just feel like there hasn’t been an effort to make it work properly."

    Liberty looked gutted as Jake said he'd rather they didn't meet up and wanted them to be "separate" adding that he was "so busy".

    He concluded, much to the anger of fans at home: "Even if we had been together it wouldn’t have worked, I’m too busy."

    One said: "Then why go on love island in the first place if your too busy to have a girlfriend? You’ve just proved you were fake all along."

    A spokesperson from Irish bookmakers Paddy Power said:

    “It’s clear for all to see that Laura isn’t feeling the love from viewers following waves of complaints about Love Island: The Reunion. 

    Could Laura become the hostess with the most-est amounts of complaints since Piers Morgan? It certainly seems like there could be another storm brewing in the ITV offices and it could only be a matter of time before Laura Whitmore becomes Laura No-More”

    LOVE ISLAND FANS WANT GEORGIA TOWNEND TO REPLACE LAURA WHITMORE AFTER SHE GRILLS CO-STARS ON NIGHT OUT

    The Essex reality star – who proved a hit during her very short time on the show – decided to take matters into her own hands after branding the reunion show ‘boring’.

    And she got to work at Liberty Poole’s 22nd birthday party when she quizzed  Hugo Hammond, Brad McClelland, Amy Day, Brett Staniland, and Aaron Simpson on various topics. 

    A source said: “Georiga has been really popular with fans since she left the show and they loved her interviews with the castmates.

    “There has been lots of talk about Laura Whitmore being replaced – and viewers really like the idea of Georgia.

    “It looks like she has a career in TV at any rate thanks to her hilarious Instagram videos.”

    LAURA’S WORDS ON DEFENDING REUNION DIDN’T WASH WITH FANS

    Laura’s words didn’t wash with fans – especially her remark about Kaz, with many wondering why being Toby’s ex was her only route to the sofa, despite being a finalist.

    While the other three couples in last month’s final appeared on the stage together to talk to Laura about their journey, Kaz and Tyler remained in the crowd with no invite to the sofa.

    Taking to Twitter to share a screenshot of Laura’s defence, one fan wrote: “So she admits that Kaz (an OG and finalist islander) was invited up to the couch as a ‘side piece’ to Toby’s journey but her and her mans were not invited up to the couch to discuss their own journey?”

    Another agreed: “So totally GLOSSING over the obvious question of why KAZ AND TYLER weren’t on the couch to talk about Kaz and Tyler? Hunny nobody cared about Kaz being with with Toby we cared about the FINALISTS not being treated as the other FINALISTS. But whatever floats your boat.”
