Georgia Steel has revealed that her family and friends received ‘death threats’ after her stint on Love Island All Stars. 

The reality star, 25, appeared on the South Africa series last month, where she finished in fourth place with ex boyfriend Toby Aromolaran.

Her time on the show was turbulent, and she revealed after leaving the villa that she had been subjected to ‘vile trolls’ and ‘death threats’, causing her to briefly leave social media. 

On Sunday, Georgia spoke to Sky News about how the online trolling affected her, and claimed her friends and family had also been targeted. 

‘You don’t really know how to process that if I’m honest, you’re quite scared, you don’t know if the whole world hates you,’ she said.

‘My family and my friends, they had death threats. My mum got messages “How could you raise a girl like this?” 

‘Yeah, which is awful, because like in reality… I just want to make the people that support and love me proud.’

Georgia then challenged the trolls over their actions, asking if they would dare say those things to a person’s face – and whether they had considered that their comments could be the thing to ‘tip someone over the edge’. 

The influencer split from her Love Island beau Toby earlier this month, less than a month after the pair reached the final of the All Stars series together. 

It was revealed that Toby had been the one to end the relationship, which had ‘blindsided’ Georgia. 

Weeks before, Georgia had taken a break from social media following the backlash she received during her time on the ITV2 show. 

She branded herself ‘Britain’s Most Hated Woman’ and admitted she was scared to leave the house following her divisive time in the villa.

Georgia, who first hit screens in 2018’s fifth season of the show, caused stirs in the villa when she vied for eventual winner Tom Clare’s affections before reuniting with former flame Toby.

After her actions were exposed to her castmates at the ‘PDA Awards’ – a new take on the show’s ever-eventful Movie Night – Georgia revealed her social media was ablaze with trolling, mostly from women, which left her feeling ‘hated’. 

Speaking to The Sun, she detailed: ‘I felt like the most hated woman in the country. I had no clue it would be that bad. 

‘I’m 25 and I wanted to meet the right person for me, and the only way to do that was to get to know people.’

Georgia added that she had been scared to leave her home amid the backlash. 

At the time of the trolling, a spokesperson from ITV said at the time: ‘We would always urge our viewers to be kind when engaging in social media conversations about our Islanders, and to remember that they are real people with feelings.’

She later returned to social media at the beginning of March, before her and Toby split, to share a slew of picture of the pair.

Revealing she had been targeted by death threats, Georgia wrote: ‘Took some time off socials to decompress and process some of the comments I saw during my time on the show.

‘It really has taken me some time to recover hence the reason I took a break from social media. I’ve been trying to find a way to transfer them into positive light’. 

Her Love Island: All Stars journey was undoubtedly bumpy, when she was initially rebuffed by Toby – with whom she had previously enjoyed a fling on Love Island: The Games – before the duo hooked up and left together.

She was a divisive figure on the ITV show after becoming embroiled in a love square with Toby, Callum Jones, 27, and Tom, 24, admitting she has feelings for all of them.

Her attempts to lure former flame Tom caused the most ructions, after she discussed fancying the footballer despite his pairing with Molly Smith. 

Speaking about the negative reactions, she said: ‘I don’t see the boys receiving the hate that I did. It’s actually mostly women that have been trolling me and I wouldn’t have expected that It’s all really confusing and hard for me to get my head around.’
