Love Island fans call for return of brutal ‘character building’ challenge

Love Island fans have called for the return of a brutal challenge, which had previously been titled Twitter Bingo, Online Bingo and Online Buzz.

And now ex-islander Olivia Attwood has joined those arguing for the challenge to return to the show, despite falling victim to the challenge while in the villa back in 2017.

That year saw a tweet from grime artist Stormzy tell Chris Hughes that he was "too good" for Olivia. And now one viral tweet has used the screenshot of this iconic moment to call for the challenge to make a comeback.

Sharing the snap, the Twitter user wrote: "Feel like pure sh*t just want this challenge back x #loveisland #loveislanduk."

This tweet was then shared by Olivia, who posted it to her Instagram Story, adding the text: "The LI kids these days will never know what we (I) went through. Character building lolol."

Another fan called for the challenge's return on Instagram, writing: "It’s not been the same since!!! Bring back the tweet challenge" to which Olivia replied: "That was a great day for me hehe."

And a third viewer added: "The best challenge!! They’ve barely done any this year."

The fan-favourite challenge was last seen in 2019, under the name 'Online Buzz' and was met with claims of faking tweets, after Molly-Mae Hague was accused of coupling up with Tommy Fury to better her chances of winning the £50,000 prize.

The tweet in question referred to her as Money-Mae, but when fans searched this they could not find the tweet in question, which may have just been deleted rather than made up but still caused some controversy.

Back in 2020 it was reported that the Twitter challenge had been scrapped "for good".

And in 2022 a source told The Sun: "As we’ve already seen, not every game is repeated year on year. Just because a challenge was part of the format for a couple of series doesn’t mean it’s here to stay.

“Producers always try and keep things fresh or respond to feedback, for example with removing food challenges.”

However, one eagle-eyed fan noticed a hint that it may soon be making its return, pointing out that the show's Twitter account has added a disclaimer to its bio, which reads: "#LoveIsland, & @LoveIsland tweets and replies may be used on social, incl your name and/or Twitter handle."

Sharing a screenshot of this, they wrote: "So it looks like the ICONIC Love Island Twitter Challenge could FINALLY be making it’s return as Love Island have updated their Twitter Bio [eyes emoji]."

"This is EXACTLY what this season needed, this challenge is going to cause CHAOS #LoveIsland."
