Anton Danyluk – Race row 

After entering the villa in 2019 hunky Anton, now 29, sparked a race row after a picture of him merged in blackface. 

The gym owner from Airdrie, dressed up as the A Team character Mr T for Halloween in 2014 and darkened his skin to mimic actor Laurence Tureaud. 

The picture was posted on his gym Facebook page – The Ranch – and showed Anton posing with other dressed-up members of a themed ‘boot camp’. 

Alongside the picture is a caption read: ‘The Halloween Boot Camp this year will be Monday 3rd November. 

‘It’s entirely your choice if you want to dress up however if you don’t you might get burpees!!!’.

Amid the uproar and calls for fans for him to be axed from the show, Anton’s mum defended him online saying:  ‘As his mother I know he would be mortified to be labelled [as racist] and would whole heartedly apologise to anyone offended by this picture.

‘There was absolutely no racist intent Medical advocacy and Outreach porn website almost six years down the line, I know it’s not the way Anton would ever behave today.’

Georgia Steel – Catfished 

Following her stint on the series in 2018 Georgia, 25, was swindled out of thousand of pounds by her conman boyfriend Medi Abalimba.

She was just 21 when she met him as he posed as a US Government agent ‘Miguel Johnson’ at a London nightclub in April 2019.

The fraudster was once a promising £1.2million footballer but later turned to crime to fund his lifestyle when his sports career ended. 

Medi had only been released from prison for a year when he targeted the Love Island star and spent around £32,000 on her credit cards, leaving her physically sick.

He was arrested in September 2019 but by then he had already moved onto his next victim and swooned Thierry Henry’s ex-wife and model Claire Henry by pretending to be a US Navy Seal.

Bills at the Corinthia and membership for Dubai’s Al Habtoor Polo Resort cost Ms Henry £38,839.11, while Abalimba spent another £13,000 on ‘general expenditure’.

Mitchel Taylor – Dropped by management 

Mitchel was dropped by his management company just two months after leaving the villa last year following accusations of homophobic behaviour at a swanky bash.

The 27-year-old, who later denied the accusations in a lengthy social media statement, was reportedly forced to return to work as gas engineer after he and islander Zachariah Noble were accused of abusing a homeless man. 

Social media influencer Ashleigh Huish, who attended the event, shared a video on social media where she referred to the two reality stars as ‘vile pieces of s**t’ who turned up to the bash uninvited.

Georgia Harrison – Revenge porn scandal 

Georgia, 29, entered the villa in 2017 as the show’s final bombshell and enjoyed a short-lived romance with Sam Gowland. 

However in 2020  she became a victim of revenge porn after ex partner Stephen Bear shared a video of them having sex which he had secretly filmed on CCTV.

He went on to leak the footage online and make £2k from selling the clip.

After Georgia reported her ex to the police she took embarked on an emotional court case which resulted in Stephen being imprisoned back in March. 

Bear is currently serving a 21-month prison sentence after being found guilty of voyeurism and two counts of disclosing private, sexual photos and films and is due to be freed before his birthday on January 20th.

Asked if she has compassion for Bear, she said: ‘Yeah, I do. I think he’s a really, really lost soul and I think his family should have got him help a long time ago, and he wouldn’t be where he is now if they took the relevant steps to take him to his GP and take him quite frankly to a mental institution.’

Georgia has been calling for better online protections for people and pushing for the Online Safety Bill

Asked if she fears his release, Georgia, who has moved back to the flat in Loughton, Essex, where they both used to live, said: ‘For the first time in a long time I walk down the street without any fear.

‘It’s not that I ever feared he would attack me, I would just fear his presence in general – like him driving past and having to see him.

‘But I don’t fear that he would try and do anything to hurt me in general. If anything I think I just fear for his own mental health and safety.

‘I don’t know what he’s going to do with his life now because he’s just gone so far beyond helping.
