During the episode, we saw Luca become upset and angry at Gemma after seeing footage of Billy flirting with her, even though she made it clear that she didn't flirt back.

After watching the clip, he said: "I don’t even want to talk to her tonight. Made me look like an absolute fucking wanker. I ain't going fucking near that bird."

He later added: "Bring a fucking bird in now and watch me flirt. If she wants to play it down to me I will fucking explode."

On his official Instagram page, the family wrote: "I want to apologise on behalf of Luca for his insensitive reaction on last night’s episode. I know that when he watches it back, he will be embarrassed and deeply apologetic.

"We as his family don’t condone his behaviour last night, but we do understand he is in an intense environment where his emotions are heightened. Last night was not reflective of the boy we all love at home."

They went on to explain that they have turned off comments on Luca's Instagram posts as a result of negative comments.

The message read: "Please be aware death threats and nasty comments totally overstep the mark and something we as a family should not have to endure, for this reason we have turned off the comments and messages.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two and on the Virgin Media Player.
