Love Island has angered fans after it showed footage of an argument between Erin and Eden last night, with some viewers now accusing the show of “condoning” domestic violence.

Contestants had been completing lie detector tests, when Erin became angry at the result of her boyfriend’s answers.

The 22-year-old completely lost her cool when Eden revealed he found Millie attractive, storming out of the living room and into the garden.

But it was her comments about what she wanted to do to her man that have outraged viewers, after declaring she was “going to get a knife, and stab him”.

Thousands of people watching the show took to Twitter to air their concerns over the footage, calling out Channel Nine for airing this kind of aggressive behaviour.

While their argument quickly cooled down, their explosive fight wasn’t missed by the fellow contestants.

Tayla described their relationship as “toxic” while Millie appeared so shocked from the outburst, she was comforted by her love interest Mark.

“Erin, the way that she kicked off when Eden said he found me attractive, whatever dude. Everyone’s attractive,” she said after.

It’s not the first time fans have been left upset by the dramatic goings on in the Spanish villa, with viewers calling a fight Eden had with Grant last month “disgraceful”.

Nine declined to comment when Be contacted them.
