Love Island's Amy Hart has been offered "psychological support" after breaking down over Curtis Pritchard's interest in a new girl.

The pair made it through this week's tense recoupling, but during the next episode - which triggered almost 200 complaints to Ofcom – Curtis admitted he had feelings for Jourdan Raine and that he had considered coupling up with her.

Amy sobbed when she found out, saying she felt "worthless" and that Curtis had made her feel like "an utter mug".

It led to fans posting messages on Twitter saying they were worried about her mental health, but a spokesperson for the ITV2 dating programme told MailOnline that support was on hand if Amy required it.

The representative said: "We take the emotional well-being of all the Islanders extremely seriously.

"We have dedicated welfare producers and psychological support on hand at all times who monitor and regularly speak to all of the Islanders in private and off camera, especially if someone appears to be upset.

"All the Islanders are therefore fully supported by the professionals on site and by their friends in the villa.

"This means Islanders are always able to reach out and talk to someone if they feel the need.

"We will of course continue to monitor all of our Islanders in line with our robust protocols."

The recoupling fallout episode also focused on Amber and Michael, whose romance came to an abrupt end when Michael decided to move on with Joanna.

Things got heated when Amber and Michael discussed what had happened, with the pair failing to see eye to eye and Anna wading in, saying she was shocked at Michael's actions.

At one point Amber used an offensive slang term to Joanna, describing her as ugly.

Ofcom said it had received a total of 196 complaints about the episode.

The broadcasting regulator is assessing the complaints and the spokesperson said they are "yet to decide whether or not to investigate".
