'Love Island's Coco Lodge says show bosses left her feeling "humiliated".

Coco, who caused waves when she hooked up with Andrew Le Page, 27, even though he was coupled up with Tasha Ghouri, 24, claimed bosses forced her to wear a bikini and encouraged her to pursue Andrew.

She told MailOnline: "They said they didn't want anyone in swimsuits and they wanted us all in bikinis. They forced me to wear a bikini and when I got there, one of the other girls was in a swimsuit so I thought… you told me I wasn't allowed and I really didn't feel comfortable walking in wearing a bikini.

"I knew there were going to be slow motion cameras and I'm sorry, we don't all have perfect bodies. I wanted to feel really great just for that moment walking in. You put a lot of pressure on yourself and they forced me to wear a bikini… I was humiliated."

Coco admitted she was first attracted to Davide Sanclimenti and said: "For me, it was hinted to me that I should not go for Davide and I should 'explore' Andrew. I didn't feel like I wanted to do it but it was the way they worded it.

"Casa Amor is essentially a massive game to stay in and you don't want to go home, you want to stay in bed with someone.

"There's a lot of pressure already so when they said that to me I thought 'I'm going to have to do it because I want to stay.' He wasn't my first choice at all. They knew what they were doing. I felt manipulated and I didn't realise until I got out the villa and saw how things played out."

And she claimed producers egged her on to confront Andrew, claiming that she had the support of the public.

She said: "The producers hyped me up to be this 'bad b****' and said on the outside world everyone was on my side so I genuinely thought I was loved by the public but in reality everyone already saw me as a villain so they were trying to feed into that narrative.

"You never saw me break down in tears, you just saw me being this sassy, b****, but the reality is I was literally having a meltdown."
