LOVE ISLAND has been caught in a race row after new bombshell Danny Bibby was caught using the N-word on social media.
The 25-year-old plumber is yet to even enter the villa, with his arrival teased at the end of last night's episode ahead of his date with Kaz Kamwi.
It didn't take long for eagle-eyed fans to comb through his Instagram account, where they came across the shocking comment.
In a photo of Danny posing in a bold leaf-patterned shirt while on holiday, a friend commented: "Champ" and a fist-bump emoji.
Danny replied: "My n****".
The exchange happened 85 weeks ago in November 2019, when he was 23 years old.
We demand that the racist islander Danny is taken off the show immediately.
Spotting the use of the offensive slur, a Love Island fan added last night: "I would take this down".
Whoever is running Danny's account quickly did just that – initially deleting the comment, before removing the post entirely.
However, a similar imagethat the new Islander had posted remains live, and has been flooded with comments from horrified Love Island viewers.
One wrote: "Racist check" alongside a sick emoji, while many others tagged the show's official social media account and begged producers to kick Danny out.

Fans have also taken to Twitter to call for Danny's removal – with some even revealing that they have complained to Ofcom about the slur.
One wrote: "@LoveIsland PLEASE REMOVE THIS RACIST FROM #LoveIsland New Islander Danny Bibby has FREELY used the N word on Instagram like it is nothing! PLEASE REMOVE THIS MAN FROM THE SHOW".
Another added: "Sorry but new boy Danny is racist and they are making our queen KAZ GO ON A DATE WITH HIMMMMM???? Sorry but throw the casting crew and directors in the bin."
A third shared a screenshot of their Ofcom confirmation, adding: "We demand that the racist islander Danny is taken off the show immediately."
One more agreed: "Does anyone have the Ofcom link? I’m reporting Danny expeditiously".
A fifth referenced black contestant Sherif Lanre being removed from the villa in 2019 after he accidentally kicked co-star Molly-Mae Hague and said it was a "c*** punt".
They wrote: "Im calling OFCOM cause aint no f***ing way @itvstudios @LoveIsland is allowing a racist on their show
"Do you lot remember the quickness they remove Sherif from the villa? I need the same thing done with Danny."
Danny is set to enter the famous villa in tonight's show, with yesterday's instalment ending as single Kaz received a text to say that she'd been chosen for a date with the tattooed hunk.
The Sun have contacted ITV for comment.
