It’s the reality show that has been slammed for its racy content.

Now Love Island has raised eyebrows once again for setting pulses racing with a ‘couples yoga’ session.

Last night, the contestants performed a variety of bendy moves whilst wearing just their swimwear.

The islanders were guided through an assortment of different poses, including the ‘trust hold’ which saw them hold hands as they lean their groins against one another and lean back.

While it was no doubt designed to help the partners bond, its naturally sexy nature has left some viewers gobsmacked.

Even the voiceover Eoghan McDermott is forced to acknowledge the flashes of flesh that are being splayed across television screens across Australia.

“Just an FYI,” he says, across shots of the housemates with their bums in the air. “We tried to find different angles to cover this scene, but the cameramen said there was none available.”

The ‘Karma Sutra pose’ in particular is rather raunchy, as the girl has to do a backbend onto her boyfriends back, giving viewers more than an eyeful.

Since its launch on 9Go last month, Love Island has continually ruffled feathers over it’s sexual content, something host Sophie Monk recently defended.

Sophie, 38, called it “unapologetically hot” in an interview with TV Week, adding it matched her own personal ethos.

“This is quirky and edgy, so it fits my style completely,” she told the publication. “It’s sexy, it’s unapologetically hot and it isn’t afraid of what it is.”

Sophie is currently the centre of her own surprising love story, after rumours emerged she’s dating MAFS’ Ryan Gallagher.

Despite admitting the pair are “talking”, she has denied they’re dating.
