Alex George had therapy after Love Island

OHMYGOSSIP — Alex George needed therapy after appearing on ‘Love Island’.
The former contestant admitted that although he doesn’t think the show is “bad”, he sought counselling “within 24 hours” after appearing on the ITV2 dating programme as it was such a “huge change” from his life before the show.
Speaking to Radio 1 Newsbeat, he said: “Not because the show was bad, but because it’s a huge change in your life dealing with social media.
“Within 24 hours I had an appointment booked and I continued to be seen, so I’ve had really good aftercare.”
Earlier this month, ITV confirmed a number of changes to their duty of care processes ahead of the new series, and the 28-year-old doctor revealed that he is now helping producers provide aftercare to contestants when the series is over.
He added: “I actually gave some of my thoughts and advice on what I would change – and some of those things have clearly been incorporated, which is great.”
The show’s new guidelines promise “enhanced psychological support” and “a proactive aftercare package”.
Alex went on to insist that bosses on the show “really care” about their contestants and that he thinks it’s important that all contestants will now be required to have several sessions – as some may struggle to “ask for help”.
He said: “Love Island’s massive and it’s done very well – and the flipside of that is they have a duty of care to look after everyone. From my experience, these are people that really care.”
“My concern is you have certain people on the show who, even if they’re really really struggling, won’t ask for help.”
