WHITMORE SNAPS BACK AT FANS OVER GREALISH CONTROVERSY
Addressing the Grealish controversy, the viewer blasted Laura’s “invasive questions”, and pointed out the hypocrisy of Laura “naming and shaming” journalists for doing the same to her in the past.
Replying, Laura said she insisted “everyone saw the questions” before the show went on air, adding: “Everyone has a choice and everyone has a right to make their own decisions.”
She went on to “clarify some other things”, writing on her Instagram Story: “Hundreds of people work on Love Island, my job is not to organise seating arrangements. I barely know what seat I’m sitting in before the show as set changes so much.
“We invited Kaz to sit with Toby for his exes segment but she didn’t want to and it’s her choice to make.
“Everything is run through with the Islanders beforehand, it’s all about choice! I only ask questions that are pre-approved by the compliance division. A lot of meetings happen before I see the script and then I can add my voice.”
Laura added: “Unlike previous years, the Islanders weren’t allowed alcohol. Please remember they are just regular people who were nervous on live telly. I’m sure some would have loved a drink for the nerves!
“I, however, had a large glass of wine before the show – having spent the last two series of Celeb Juice not drinking, I owed it to myself.”
