Love Island’s Kaz Crossley has revealed contestants used ‘racist accents’ on Love Island as a tactic to keep private chats from airing on screens.
Kaz said her fellow reality stars worked out they could use foreign accents to communicate in secret so producers would not air their conversations.
The 24-year-old beauty, who appeared in the villa last year, explained that ITV bosses weren’t able to use the scenes because they didn’t want to offend viewers.
Kaz recently told the Cambridge Union:
‘You knew what they could show or not – like they couldn’t put in a lot of swearing, bad words or if you talked about racist jokes, anything like that.
‘So sometimes, and we got into trouble for it, if you talk in an accent and say what you wanted to say then you knew they were never going to show it because they don’t want to offend people.’
Kaz, who split with Josh Denzel in January after they sparked a romance on the show, said they even knew which accents they could use.
‘They show accents from the UK but not others, to avoid offending other countries’.

Claims: The 24-year-old beauty, who appeared in the villa last year, explained that ITV bosses weren’t able to use the scenes because they didn’t want to offend viewers.
MailOnline has contacted a Love Island spokesperson for comment.
It comes as former Love Island star Theo Campbell made a shock revelation about the filming of the reality show.
Theo, 27, said producers walked around the villa all day and decided who people could and couldn’t talk to.
And last year, the show came under fire after scenes involving Georgia Steel sharing a kiss with Jack Fowler appeared staged.
Viewers claimed that footage shown from different angles didn’t seem to match up, with many venting their disappointment over the supposed staged kiss.
