Tense: Love Island bosses have denied drafting in extra security after Jonny Mitchell and Theo Campbell clashed during a surprise recoupling. Fighting over Tyla Carr, the pair faced off in dramatic scenes on Friday night's show
It had been reported that show bosses had upped the security following the most dramatic and aggressive scenes of the series so far.
'Producers want to make sure everyone in the villa is kept safe,' a show source told the Star on Sunday.
'It is understood there will be rows between contestants but a physical fight won't be tolerated. If things get too heated, security reps will storm in and put a stop to it.'
A spokesperson told MailOnline there was 'no truth' to the claims.
After being forced to choose the one remaining girl, Amber, Jonny stood up and called the new islander a b*****d for his decision to take Tyla away from him.
In retaliation, Theo stood up and shouted: 'B******? You're a b******! Dry your tears mate!'
