Love Island Season 5: Virgin Media blocks Irish votes unfairly
The UK fans are busy voting for their favorites in Love Island Season 5 but Irish fans don’t have the opportunity. Virgin Media has blocked voting in Greg and Maura’s home Ireland.
That despite Love Island trumping RTE’s Nine O’Clock in ratings with over 300k viewers every night. The Irish voters as a result are urging the UK fans to vote for their favorites in the Spanish villa.
Irish model Shannen Reilly McGrath meanwhile termed the restriction discriminating. The Dublin model herself appeared on Love Island 2017. She talked to the Mirror regarding the same.
“It is not like we are watching the show online or through ITV. It is being shown on an Irish network, Virgin Media, so we should be given the opportunity to have the same say as the British fans.”
