Love Island’s new bombshell Andrea Jane ‘AJ’ Bunker has been defended by viewers after trolls made unkind comments about her age online.

AJ Bunker is one of the newbies to enter Love Island along with new guy Danny Bibby and blonde bombshells Lucinda Strafford and Millie Court.

Her arrival into the villa on Wednesday night saw heads being turned as the hair technician got ready to shake things up.

Although AJ was met with a lot of interest from the lads and comments about how stunning she is by fellow Islanders, she has also faced a number of unkind messages online after some people trolled her about her age.

The 28-year-old Islander - real name Andrea Jane - became a point of discussion on Twitter following her entrance to the villa, with some claiming she’s a lot older than she looks.

“People are already judging AJ because of her looks and age?? Wtf. She hasn't even said or done anything and you're all bullying her. Love Island can be so toxic at times. #LoveIsland,” wrote a third.
