Love Island fans are forced to ‘turn up their TVs’ as Liam’s whispers baffle viewers
Love Island fans have been forced to ‘turn their TVs back on’ after Liam Llewellyn’s whispers on his first dates left viewers baffled.
The 23-year-old Welsh student was chosen to date not one but two new girls who walked into the villa during tonight’s episode.
He was the first of the islanders to meet 27-year-old Turkish actress Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and 25-year-old salon host Afia Tonkmor.
He “dated” the pair in a rather odd setup, where he first sat with Afia at a table, with Ekin-Su sitting alone in the background, before switching tables to sit with Ekin-Su.

In a perhaps well-practiced flirting technique, a usually loud Liam adopted a breathy, whispery voice when addressing the girls, both of whom he described as stunning, prompting Love viewers Island to hear what he was saying.
Fans of the show took to Twitter to comment on Liam’s audio levels.
One person added a meme of a woman staring into the distance looking confused, and they wrote: “why is Liam giving us asmr stop whispering”.
Someone else wrote: “Liam man why are you whispering”.
Another Twitter user wrote: ‘Is Liam auditioning for an asmr career with this whisper’, while another wrote: ‘Why is my guy talking low, whispering a ting’.
Yet another user posted another meme, begging Liam to “speak up”: “Why is Liam whispering please. DO YOU SPEAK”.
Someone else wrote: ‘Liam whispers to these girls like he thinks they might be scared like horses’, while another posted a confused image of Nicki Minaj and wrote: ‘Me trying to hear what Liam is saying. why is he whispering”.
Although Liam could whisper, it seems Ekin-Su could hear what he was saying, and she complimented his blue eyes before he in turn complimented her brown eyes.
Liam is currently single and vulnerable in the villa, after Italian newcomer Davide chose to steal his original partner, Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma, to partner with.
Meanwhile, Ekin-Su and Afia’s arrival at the Mallorcan villa has, predictably, ruffled a few feathers.
The boys swooned over Ekin-Su, and the girls were left territorial over their partners after Ekin-Su wasted no time getting to know the boys.
She walked over to 19-year-old Gemma Owen’s partner Davide, 27, leaving Gemma less than impressed.
Another comment she made to Gemma that the latter “could be like her little sister” made Gemma extremely angry, saying, “Who the hell does she think she’s talking to?”
