Love Island contestants Zachariah Noble and Mitchel Taylor, who appeared on the latest 2023 season of the popular dating show, have been labelled as homophobic and disgusting after rumours began to circulate regarding their behaviour at a Space NK event on 21 September.

Noble and Taylor, who after becoming close while in the villa have been spotted out publicly together numerous times, allegedly attended the cosmetics event despite not actually being invited. 

The rumours first began to spread on TikTok after creator @AshsLifeStories posted a now-deleted video on her account detailing having seen two Love Islanders at the event causing a scene and speaking in a really horrific way.

Ash stated: “[The event] was slightly soiled on by two Love Islanders who are just the most vile pieces of sh*t that I believe could’ve possibly ever walked the planet. They weren’t even invited, they just turned up. Do you know what they said? I don’t even know if I can say this out loud without cringing because I’m embarrassed for them. [They said:] ‘We’re actually the most famous people here’.”

The creator continued: “I’m stood outside, in the rain, with my friend having a chat and this homeless man walks past and says ‘Please has anybody got any money?’ and [one of the Love Islanders] puts his hand in his pocket and throws the money at him. I saw this with my own f*cking eyes.”

Not only that, Ash also went on to say that both boys were “incredibly homophobic” and after Space NK was made aware of this, the company made the two leave immediately.

Following this, other creators began to make videos and share their thoughts on the matter. Max Balegde, who has over 3.5 million followers on TikTok, shared a video expressing his disgust at the situation. Baledge captioned the video: “Love you @AshsLifeStories for being HONEST about their behaviour and for the record I wouldn’t recognise them in a million years #loveisland.”

Shortly after this, the creator also replied to a number of comments on the video supposedly confirming that it was indeed Noble and Taylor who were the two Love Islanders at the event. However, he did also go on to say that he didn’t know any of the contestants’ names and so could be wrong.

Neither Noble nor Taylor have publically responded to these allegations.
