Love Island hit with more than 250 Ofcom complaints over age-gap romances
Love Island has been hit hard with complaints in its first week of airing after fans were outraged over the age gap between Gemma Owen, 19, and Davide Sanclimenti, 27.Viewers of the ITV dating programme were particularly outraged when the former Liverpool striker's daughter Michael Owen shared a passionate kiss with the hunky Italian which prompted a lot of feedback on Twitter.Further rage was sparked when Davide later admitted on the show that he would normally date younger females - which lead to many viewers requesting for a 21-year-age limitation in place to be a contestant.Outraged viewers complained to Ofcom over the age difference between the pair, with an influx of 167 complaints issued about the episode of June 7, which saw them couple up.One person penned: "Please please please have a minimum age requirement of 21, I don’t want to see a 19-year-old kissing someone who’s pushing 30."Another tweet read: "Ewwww I’m sorry but why does Davide as a 27-year-old want to be coupled up with a 19-year-old.""Keep Gemma away from Davide. She's a teenager and he is nearly 30, I am not here for it," fumed a third who was hoping to be heard by producers.While a fourth raged: "19 and 27 is a mad age gap … Gemma's age means I can't see her with any of them.

Millions of adults are cutting out alcohol to save money and be healthy
Millions of adults are cutting out alcohol to save money and be healthy – inspired by the younger “Generation Sensible” who booze less.A study of 2,000 Brits found 38% are mindful when it comes to drinking, and a quarter have consciously cut down their intake in the past year.Health is the top reason for this new behaviour (32%), while 15% wanted to prevent waking up with gaps in their memory.A quarter cut back to avoid a hangover, and 14% felt being more mindful with their drinking would help them be fully present at events.But three in ten believe younger generations are leading the way when it comes to mindful drinking.The study was commissioned by Harrogate Spring Water, which has teamed up with Dr Alex George and TV celebrity bartender Merlin Griffiths, to launch Royal Ascot’s first low- and no-alcohol bar.Richard Hall, the brand’s managing director, said: “Our survey clearly shows how adults really are being more mindful about their alcohol intake post-lockdown, as they now focus on creating memories from their experiences.”Dr Alex George said: “Adopting a mindful approach with drinking is such a key way for us to look after ourselves, and also make the most of our experiences.“I find it so interesting that a sixth of those polled said not being fully present at an event in the past from drinking too much alcohol, had influenced them to now be more mindful with their intake.“With 26% of people noticing that by cutting down they have a better memory of their experiences, you don’t need much more of an incentive to give it a try.“I can’t wait for racegoers to come try out Merlin’s delicious mocktail and have the opportunity to drink mindfully throughout their day.”The study also found over a fifth (22%) have attended
