Piers Morgan, who wants Chrissy Teigen cancelled, has now shared his thoughts on the upcoming series of Love Island and said that ‘dimwit’ contestants shouldn’t sign up to the reality show if they can’t handle the pressure.
Bosses of the ITV2 show are introducing a series of measures that will help them with the ‘impacts of social media and handling potential negativity,’ but Morgan doesn’t think it’s necessary.
Taking to Twitter, the 56-year-old said: “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 in no clothes having sex with like-minded dimwits.”
Love Island has previously faced backlash over its duty of care policy, following the death of two Islanders; Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis, plus host Caroline Flack, who all tragically decided to take their own lives.
The new duty of care act will involve psychological support, conversations about the impact of participating in the show, financial control and finding management.
Discussing the process, Dr Matthew Gould, who will oversee the new system, told Daily Mail: “Duty of care is not a static goal. It evolves with public expectation, legislation, and with the commercial development of the programme format in order to maintain creativity.
“Effective delivery of care is an exercise in collaboration especially between health professionals, programme participants and producers. Also, it can be especially influenced by senior leaders within an organisation.
“My appointment last year in a new role to broaden the duty of care effort is testament to the seriousness which ITV gives this subject.”
