Italian Love Island fan says Davide is faking accent as viewers want subtitles

An Italian Love Island fan has slammed Islander Davide Sanclimenti claiming his accent is "fake."

The confused viewer of the hit ITV dating show took to Reddit to make their claims as he challenged the authenticity of the hunky business owner from Manchester's Italian accent.

They wrote: "I’m Italian and I think Davide’s accent is fake Or to the very least most certainly forced. There you go."

As the post sparked discussion among viewers the viewer then went on to clarify their opinion on his way of speaking with an edit to the initial claim.

They continued: "Edit: I’m basing this on a very large pool of fellow Italians who live in the UK like me. People with an accent that strong also tend to mess up with the grammar, which is not Davide’s case.

"Some of the things he mispronounces are also not a thing. I’m not saying he has no accent at all, but he was most likely asked to force it."

Meanwhile, fans of the show have taken to Twitter to ask producers to include subtitles on some of Davide's on-screen moments as they are struggling to decipher what he is saying thanks to his dulcet tones.

One viewer posted: "Where can i get subtitles when Davide's speaking?"

Another added: "I’m sorry but Davide needs subtitles at times, I’m actually am struggling.

A third agreed: "I desperately need subtitles for Davide what is this man saying."

A fourth social media user continued: "I can’t understand a word Davide says and my subtitles aren’t fast enough."

A fifth claimed: "We definitely need subtitles when Davide speaks because tell me why I have to rewind and slow it down just to understand him."

Bombshell Davide, 27, was seen coupling up with 19-year-old international dressage rider Gemma Owen on Tuesday night (June 7) after he got to take his pick of all the girls in the Villa.

The couple were then seen leaving the Villa to go on their first date in Wednesday's (June 8) episode, before two new Bombshell girls were revealed to be entering the Villa ahead of the next recoupling on Friday (June 10).

Love Island airs every night except Saturdays at 9 pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
