Simon Searles disagrees with the "Love Island" sex ban.

The 30-year-old hunk appeared on the ITV 2 show last year alongside popular contestants Amber Davis, Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes, and has slammed reports that bosses will cut all steamy scenes from airing in the upcoming series because the contestants should feel free to express their love however they feel comfortable.

Simon, who tried to woo Montana Brown during his time on the show told OK! Online: "As for banning sex, it's called "Love Island" ... when you fall in love you want to have sex. Anyone that has a problem with that has the option to not watch the show, and I think that's probably why the show has been fired to make that call with all the complaints. It's not like it's a porno, give people a break."

However, he does have advice for this year's contestants who are looking to cause a bit of a stir on the dating show - hosted by Caroline Flack - and suggests bringing the "drama" will make for good TV.

He explained: "Pick whichever girl you want, either cause a ruckus or fall in love!
