Love Island viewers forced to ‘mute’ ITV2 show during ‘annoying’ challenge

Love Island viewers were forced to "mute" their TVs on last night’s episode (March 8) as the infamous baby challenge returned.

The Islanders got a rude awakening when the babies began crying in another room, as they realized the gruelling challenge that awaited them.

Each couple was given a doll to take care of for the day, and they were tasked with keeping the tot happy, including soothing it when it cries and changing nappys.

With five babies suddenly disturbing the peace in the Love Island villa, both the Islanders and viewers were left covering their ears, and some fans even took to social media to express their annoyance.

One person tweeted, "I need to mute this episode of #loveisland. the crying babies are sooooo annoying," while another joked, "All mums will be watching this episode on mute #loveisland."

A third added, "I always mute this episode #loveisland." Even Kai Fagan felt the same way about the babies crying and admitted that the noise was "doing [his] head in" following the boys' outing.

Despite the crying getting on Kai's nerves, the challenge sparked him to discuss his future family plans.

Speaking to fellow Islander Shaq Muhammad, Kai – who named his baby Bruno – shared, "I'm the most laid-back chilled individual going, Bruno will have a field day with me, Sanam will be the strict one."

Shaq then pressed Kai about his plans with love interest Sanam and went on to ask, "Can you see yourself and Sanam having kids one day maybe?"

“If things keep going how they are then without a doubt I could see us having kids," Kai candidly shared.

"Bruno is lucky to have a mum like her; she's beautiful, intelligent, caring.”

As Kai began to dream of his future with Sanam, there was an awkward moment between Shaq and Tanya Manhenga after she joked that the baby wasn’t his.

Shaq was left unimpressed with the joke and their parenting journey became tense after the comments were made.

Some fans went on to joke that the baby was in fact Martin’s, Tania’s love interest who she brought back from Casa Amor.
