Joe had been coupled up with Lucie on Love Island

The mother of Love Island's Joe Garratt has hit back at claims against her son following complaints.

Over 800 complaints were made to the British TV regulator Ofcom about his treatment of Lucie, who he was coupled up with on the show.

Meanwhile, abuse charity Women's Aid also called Joe's behaviour towards Lucie as 'predatory'.

Joe made headlines after appearing to tell Lucie that he didn't like her talking to the other boys in the villa - namely Tommy Fury.

It was the latest in a series of concerns which were also raised by viewers about how Joe was treating her.

Now his mother, Rachael Garratt, has dismissed suggestions of controlling behaviour to the Daily Mail.

"I see him every day of the week and there’s no way he would make a girl cry. He’s a normal, loving 22-year-old lad," she said

The comments were made before Joe was dumped from the Island in last night's elimination.

Joe and Lucie are split up

In last night's episode, Joe and Lucie were rocked by the shock elimination, which saw them split up.

The previous night, all couples were asked to nominate the pairings they thought were least compatible.

Joe and Lucie were put on the chopping block as well as Elma and Anton.

However, Caroline Flack arrived to the villa to deliver the shock news that one from each couple would be dumped from the Island.

Joe was forced to leave the Island after the public opted the save Lucie, leaving her devastated.

Anton and Elma were also split up in the vote last night, with Anton remaining in the villa.

Love Island returns tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
