    Laura Whitmore left viewers of Sunday’s Love Island reunion angry after she quizzed Casa Amor bombshell Lillie about footballer Jack Grealish, who is in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart Sasha Attwood.

    Twitter users branded the presenter, 36, ‘disrespectful’ after she said to 22-year-old Lillie: ‘I’ve spotted some pictures, yes I’ve seen them. Jack Grealish – what’s going on?’ however was quick to defend herself on Instagram, writing: ‘I insist everyone sees the questions before they go on air and are OK with it.’

    Laura was seemingly referring to Jack, 25, liking a string of Lillie’s glamorous Instagram photos last month – including one of her wearing a bikini – before swiftly unliking the sizzling snaps. The pair were also spotted chatting at a star-studded party in August shortly afterwards.

    Speaking to Lillie, Laura said in full during the special Love Island episode: ‘I want to know where you’re at because I’ve spotted some pictures, yes I’ve seen them. Jack Grealish – what’s going on? We saw pictures – what’s going on?’

    Clearly embarrassed, Lillie awkwardly replied: ‘Nothing.’

    Fans quickly took to Twitter to brand Laura’s line of questioning ‘disrespectful’.

    One person tweeted: ‘How disrespectful. Jack Grealish has a girlfriend. These rumours must cause so much mental stress and heartache.’

    A second person noted: ‘Bit awkward of Laura Whitmore who has pleaded for paps to leave her alone… to say to Lillie, ”We’ve all seen the pictures, what about Jack Grealish?”’

    A third said: ‘Was defo inappropriate for Laura to ask Lillie about Jack Grealish on live tv he has a girlfriend.’

    The presenter’s next message read: ‘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.’

    Offering up an example of contestants not being made to do anything they’re uncomfortable with, Laura continued: ‘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.’

    Touching further on the questions she puts to islanders, Laura added: ‘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.’

    Wrapping up her string of posts, Laura also said that islanders ‘weren’t allowed alcohol’ unlike previous years.

    ‘Unlike previous years, the islanders weren’t allowed alcohol,’ she began.

    ‘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.’
