Ex-Love Island contestant receives 'death threats'

Police are investigating alleged death threats against the Cornish contestant who quit Love Island.

Ollie Williams has reportedly received abuse over those photos, seemingly next to dead animals.

However the 23-year-old has now spoken out to deny claims he is a trophy hunter.

According to Sky News, he says the images show his involvement in a conservation programme in Mozambique which involves culling old or sick animals.

Ollie's family are believed to have moved out of their home on the Lanhydrock estate following the alleged threats.

Their property is said to be under 24-hour guard after reports of abusive voicemails from animal rights' activists.

"Police are currently investigating alleged threats made to a former contestant on ITV2 show Love Island.

"Enquiries are ongoing at this time".

Ollie decided to leave the show just three days into the winter series, saying he is still in love with his ex-girlfriend.
