Love Island bosses have been called out in the past for their attitude towards gay people, claiming having LGBTQ contestants in the villa would be a "logistical difficulty", but it seems that this year's series might be more inclusive than we first thought.

On Tuesday night's episode, show hopeful Sharon Gaffka sent social media wild when she revealed that she is bisexual.

The 25-year-old, who is currently coupled up with Hugo Hammond, opened up about her sexuality as the Islanders took part in the Horny Devils challenge.

Dressed as a devil, Aaron Francis stepped up to the podium to read the civil servant's confession, saying: "This girl has had a threesome three times."

All the male islanders decided the steamy revelation was the government worker's, with event host Aaron going on to share a kiss with her.

Following the threesome revelation, Sharon went on to speak openly about her sexuality.

"Well I don’t know if I’m supposed to find out if I like girls and boys if I don’t find out for myself," she told her fellow Islanders.

Viewers were quick to praise Sharon's candid chat, taking to social media to dub the 25-year-old a "bisexual legend".

"Sharon is bisexual! So glad there is someone representing the LGBTQ community," one fan tweeted, while another quipped: "Bisexual legend Sharon!!!"

Another viewer expressed their delight in some variety on the show, writing, "Sharon the bisexual smart icon we stan" following Tuesday night's episode.

Speaking exclusively to the Radio Times earlier this month, ITV commissioner Amanda Stavri had discussed the increasing pressure for Love Island to feature contestants who are not all straight.

"There’s been quite a few rumours circulating about featuring gay Islanders, so it’s worth touching on that really… The line-up will be announced within time and it goes without saying that we want to encourage greater inclusivity and diversity," she told the publication.

"In terms of gay Islanders, I think the main challenge is regarding the format of Love Island," she continued.

"There’s a sort of logistical difficulty, because although Islanders don’t have to be 100 percent straight, the format must sort of give [the] Islanders an equal choice when coupling up."

In the show's entire history, there has only been one same-sex pairing when Katie Salmon and the late Sophie Gradon coupled up in 2016.

Last year, 2018 contestant Megan Barton-Hanson said she had regrets not coming out as bisexual while appearing on the show.

The 27-year-old explained that she didn’t want to add to the perception that she was “really sexual” on the programme while speaking on The Independent’s relationships podcast, Millennial Love.

“It took me so long to come out because I worked in the sex industry because I didn’t want it to be for the male gaze, or for people to think, oh she’s doing it for attention, or to seem more appealing to men. That is the furthest thing from the truth,” she explained.

The Love Island beauty then went on to discuss her decision to come out prior to appearing in 2019’s series of Celebs Go Dating.

"I was struggling to meet gay girls. It’s so hard when you’re into feminine girls and you’re feminine yourself, it’s really hard to navigate who is gay and who’s not.

"So it thought, this show is perfect, they can go and get me some cute girls."
