Love Island host Caroline Flack has defended contestant Anna Vakili after James Jordan accused her of being “nasty”.

Former Strictly Come Dancing pro Jordan had a pop at Anna after she laid in to Islander Michael Griffiths for ditching Amber Gill for Joanna Chimonides.

“Anna is one nasty piece of work,” he tweeted.

“At least the mean girls don’t have so much power in the @LoveIsland Villa anymore.

“IT’S CALLED KARMA BABY!!! It is what it is.”

His comment did not go down well with Flack, who quickly tweeted back: “She’s not nasty x.”

But Jordan refused to cave in, telling the presenter that he was just calling it as he saw it.

“That’s how she comes across babe,” he told Flack.

Softening her words with a kiss, Flack said: “It’s an extreme statement .. for her to come out and see ... were better than that x.”

Still not backing down, Jordan replied: “But I also remember the way she was also nasty to Danny..... only commenting on what I see.

“I’m not that keen, sorry xxx.”

“I like to protect my islanders,” said Flack.

“Love you tho as always,” she said, adding a heart emoji.

Jordan is known for being vocal about reality programmes and often shares his thoughts on the performances on Strictly, which he left in 2013.

In December he hit the headlines when he called Strictly winner Stacey Dooley’s show dance with Kevin Clifton "a complete mess".

He tweeted: “Stacey mmmmm I normally love Kevin’s Choreography but I just didn’t get this at all.

“A show dance for me should be full of lifts and an exciting and a mix of dances.

“It was a complete mess and didn’t understand the beginning AT ALL.

“NOT GOOD EVEN FOR A NON DANCER.”
