A number of former Islanders have spoken out in defence of Luca Bish after weeks of him being branded 'possessive' and a 'bully'.
The fishmonger has come under fire for his alleged treatment of Tasha, as well as towards his partner Gemma – but those on the show insist it’s not as it seems.
Quizzed on his behaviour, Summer told Mured Mureli on his YouTube channel: “I was upset when I came out and saw Luca was getting hate. I was like ‘what’. I respect Luca. He is probably one of the realist in there, he will tell you how it is no matter what.”
Deji agreed saying: “I don’t think Luca is a bully, I don’t think Dami is a bully. They have your best intentions at heart.”
"I don’t agree with the portrait that has been painted. I don’t think it’s fair that people say they are bullies."

“We as his family don’t condone his behaviour last night, but we do understand he is in an intense environment where his emotions are heightened.
“Last night was not reflective of the boy we all know and low at home."
