Love Islands Luca Bishs sister ends social media silence after death threats

Love Island star Luca Bish's sister has made her return to social media after she took a break from running his accounts after a barrage of vicious messages from trolls.

Claudia stepped back from posting after outraged viewers sent nasty messages to her brother over his behaviour towards Tasha Ghouri and Gemma Owen in scenes that aired on the show last week.

The Mad Movies challenge saw Luca growing angry at Gemma after rival Islander Billy Brown was shown flirting with her on numerous occasions.

Viewers then accused Luca of "bullying" alongside Dami Hope when they repeatedly made snide remarks at Tasha during the Snog, Marry, Pie challenge.

The backlash against Luca's behaviour led to his family issuing an apology where they called his actions "insensitive behaviour" and admitted he will be "deeply embarrassed" when he sees the footage.

Whilst both Luca and Dami did eventually apologise to Tasha, the wave of criticism of his actions prompted Claudia to announce the break from social media.

However, she has now returned after Thursday's (July 21) episode, posting a picture of Luca and Gemma looking loved up.

She captioned the post: “It really is FINtastic watching their ROEmance blossom everyday.”

Claudia revealed that Luca had been sent death threats during an Instagram Q&A session when she was asked how his family were doing, admitting she felt "broken."

She said: "First of all, thank you for the tons of people that asked this. If I'm being honest, not remotely okay. It's really hard.

"How would you feel having people constantly praying for death over the people you love more than anything in the world? We feel broken.

"I'm not stupid, I understand that people will always have their opinions and nobody can take that away from them, but if you saw HALF of the messages we have received then I'm sure anyone would feel disgusted."

She continued: "I really wanted to do a fun Q&A today but I'm going to have to take a little breather from it all as I'm not coping very well with seeing stuff like this.

"Thank you for the continued support for the ones showing love, you are all angels, but understandably I'll be logging off from managing the account for a little bit."

Love Island airs nightly at 9 pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
