Love Island fans accuse Greg of ‘fat shaming’ Curtis by calling him ‘a big guy’ during final


LOVE Island fans have accused Greg O’Shea of fat shaming Curtis Pritchard after he branded him a “big guy”.

The show’s winner made the comment about the dancer’s weight gain after they were given dance lessons ahead of the Summer Ball.

Speaking about Curtis’ moves in the Beach Hut, he declared: “Man can he move for a big fella.”

Those watching at home caught his comment and took to Twitter to discuss his apparent diss.

One person wrote: “Greg called Curtis fat “he can dance well for a big fella” #LoveIsland.”

A second commented: “#LoveIsland Greg just called Curtis fat, he is defo my winner.”

Since being on the show Curtis has had to ask for an entirely new wardrobe because he can no longer fit into his old wardrobe.

Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard’s brother is said to have gone up two clothes sizes while in the Spanish abode, because he has been enjoying tasty treats and unable to train.

A source told the Daily Star: “Curtis took some clothes with him and there were also outfits provided by sponsors.

“But he had to ask for some new ones because he is struggling to fit into them now.”

Love Island bosses were forced to warn viewers to stop bodyshaming the star.

They said: “It is incredibly irresponsible that any Islander would be body-shamed in this way and we would always discourage anyone from making appearance-based comments that could be hurtful to the islanders and their families.”

Last night saw Greg O’Shea and Amber Gill win the show and £50k.

The couple beat favourites Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury to win the ITV2 series.

Ovie Soko and India Reynolds came third, and Curtis and Maura Higgins came fourth.
