Piers Morgan Slams Love Island’s Contestants As ‘Dimwits’.
PIERS MORGAN took to social media to brand Love Island contestants “dimwits”, slamming ITV’s new mental health protocols and insisting that people shouldn’t go on the reality show if they “can’t stand the heat”.
Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 56, has taken to Twitter to blast prospective Love Island contestants, warning them they shouldn’t go on the reality show if they “can’t stand the heat”.
The outspoken and always controversial media personality branded the contestants in this year’s line-up, which is yet to be announced, “dimwits”, insisting that only thick-skinned individuals should ever take part in the dating programme.
He penned: “My advice would be much simpler to any prospective Love Island contestants: if you can’t stand the heat, don’t go into the kitchen. Nobody’s forcing these people to go on TV and cavort around in no clothes having sex with like-minded dimwits”, he added.
ITV has unveiled the rigorous welfare checks and training this year’s Love Island contestants will be expected to go through before heading into the Mallorca villa.
TV bosses confirmed that the 2021 islanders will be subjected to coaching in money matters and dealing with online trolling as well as receiving therapy sessions to help them adjust to their newfound fame when they leave the villa.
The new guidelines follow a 2018 enquiry into the show that has been hit with controversy in the past, including the tragic suicides of contestants Mike and Sophie Gradon.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
