Charity issue warning after Love Island episode

Women's Aid is urging people to recognise unhealthy behaviour in relationships following an episode of Love Island.

The show's Rosie Williams was seen calling out her former love interest Adam Collard on the way he'd treated her.

The charity says there were 'clear warning signs in Adam's behaviour'.

He can't comment because he's still on the programme - with no contact with the outside world.

Katie Ghose, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, said:

“On the latest series of Love Island, there are clear warning signs in Adam’s behaviour. In a relationship, a partner questioning your memory of events, trivialising your thoughts or feelings, and turning things around to blame you can be part of pattern of gaslighting and emotional abuse.

“Last night, Rosie called out Adam’s unacceptable behaviour on the show. We ask viewers to join her in recognising unhealthy behaviour in relationships and speaking out against all forms of domestic abuse – emotional as well as physical. It is only when we make a stand together against abuse in relationships that we will see attitudes change and an end to domestic abuse.”

If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse in a relationship, call the Freephone 24/7 National Domestic Violence Helpline, run by Women’s Aid in partnership with Refuge, on 0808 2000 247 or visit www.womensaid.org.uk.
