Sunday past wasn’t a great one for M-Net and South Africans, as Love Island premiered and viewers were left highly disappointed. Viewers took to Twitter to discuss their feelings about the show. Many explained how poor the production was, producers were chatting during the episode and the sound quality was poor. The dating show was also called out on the lack of diversity, M-Net then released their statement which read…

“You called us out on the lack of diversity and production quality in our first episode of Love Island SA. We’re sorry – we didn’t meet our usual standard on both counts”.

“We are working tirelessly to fix things, and to deliver the Magic you deserve”, M-Net stated.

It doesn’t end there, on Tuesday the show’s biggest sponsor pulled out too.

“LottoStar has taken the decision to respectfully withdraw its sponsorship of Love Island SA. We wish the show and its contestants every success”, the lottery LottoStar  announced on Twitter.
