The father of Ollie Williams turned down the chance to back his son despite the fact that he has become a hate figure on Love Island.
Asked to defend the 23-year-old toff, Andrew Williams said: “This is Oliver’s journey and we won’t be commenting.”
Then he said the lad could “speak for himself” when he leaves the villa.
Fans have turned against Ollie – heir to Lanhydrock Estate in Cornwall – after photos emerged of him before the launch show looking like a trophy hunter posing with dead animals killed in Africa.
TV watchdog Ofcom received 231 complaints from viewers saying it is a disgrace he has been allowed on the show.
Officials will assess whether to take the matter further.
