Holly said: "I mean I've got this girl... there's ones that I like and ones that I like not so much.

"But I'm going to reserve judgement."

And speaking about Rochelle Humes' sister Sophie Piper's coupling with Connor Durman, she said: "She's very sweet, he got a bit cross with her at one point and I didn't like that very much.

She then explained the controversy to co-host Philip Schofield, saying: "He talked about his sex life and he was bragging about something and all the girls just went it's not really something to brag about and he got cross and a bit defensive."

In the first episode, Connor was slammed for bragging about a threesome, but then getting angry with Sophie, 21, when she made a joke about it.

Connor, 25, claimed that he once went on a date and ended up bedding both her and her flatmate - and when Mike Boateng revealed he'd slept with less than 20 people later in the episode, Sophie joked: "You’ve got yourself a keeper, not one that has a threesome on a first date!"

The joke didn't go down well with the coffee bean salesman, who snapped: "You hate me tonight, you're hating me."

When Sophie tried to salvage the situation by stroking his arm and laughing it off, he replied: 'You’re digging me out already, you are!'

Viewers took to Twitter to slam Connor for his actions, with one writing: "Bragging about having a threesome and then saying she's digging him out! Run for the hills Sophie... #LoveIsland."
