The Islanders were taking part in a ‘getting to know you challenge’ when Hugo was asked what his biggest turn off was.
After he said it was girls with “fake personality and looks”, some of the female Islanders who had undergone cosmetic procedures were upset with him.
Sharon called him “ignorant as fuck” while Faye said that Hugo needed to get “fucking educated why girls get work done”.
Hugo later ended up in tears after realising he had upset the girls, and as the scenes unfolded, Katie took to Instagram to air her views.
Filming her TV on her Story, Katie shouted: “Get over it, girls. Some guys don’t like the fake look, they like the girl-next-door.
“If you can’t handle the criticism, don’t get the work done.”
Lettings manager Faye admitted during the episode that her parents paid for her to have a boob job for her 18th birthday after being insecure about her looks growing up.
Former beauty queen Sharon also said: “I’m fucking pissed off. Girls do it to boost their confidence and I don’t think that should be a negative.”
Hugo later insisted he “didn’t mean anything malicious” with his comments, telling the pair: “I’m really fucking sorry… I meant no harm by it.”
Love Island continues on Wednesday at 9pm on ITV2.
