Laura's interview style was criticised by viewers

"The reason I answered the way I did, is because every single interview I did upon leaving asked me 'how did seeing Lucinda with Aaron make you feel?'

"I'm sick of answering that question, I'm sure the public are sick of hearing us answer that question, so I thought 'd'ya know what? Screw this, I'll come up with a daft question!'" Brad said.

"Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer!" he said, seemingly taking aim at host Laura.

Brad was one of the original Islanders in the villa, and on the first day, he coupled up with Faye Winter.

They later split, leaving him single, but he was soon saved by newcomer Rachel Finni.

However, Brad’s head was turned by the arrival of Lucinda, and after just two days of being together, they were told that they had received the lowest number of public votes, and were at risk of being dumped.

In a cruel twist, it was up to Brad and Lucinda to decide if one of them should go, or both of them.

After Brad left the villa, Lucinda then coupled up with new boy Danny, but she later cracked on with Aaron, before they were dumped from the villa on day 28.

Viewers were disappointed with the reunion show – which has featured more drama in previous years – with some dubbing it “boring” and “awkward”.

Many were also furious with host Laura’s invasive questioning, especially during her interview with Lillie, leading fans to call for her to be replaced next year.

Laura later addressed the controversy, and hit back at her critics in a series of posts on her Instagram Stories, insisting that “everyone saw the questions” and multiple meetings were held to discuss what would be shown in the reunion.

"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,” she explained.

Laura later confessed that she’d had a glass of wine before filming the live show, and said that unlike previous years, the Islanders were not 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!” she added.
