During his stay in Love Island, Joe Garratt faced backlash for being seemingly dominant over his partner, Lucie Donlan. The sandwich maker shared his side of the story.
The sandwich-maker caught up with Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp to clear the air following the backlash, saying "Obviously it was a hard one.
"I literally had no idea," continued the 22-year-old. "To come out and here about the press, and stuff; I had no idea."
Joe went on to say that it wasn't easy to receive the criticisms, and that the "thought [he'd] been perceived in that way was gutting."
Roman, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay were quick to defend Joe's actions, after he broke his silence after his Love Island dumping, and thanked his bodyguard for protecting him.
