Love Island star Katie Salmon has hit back at Gaz Beadle, after he appeared to mock her boob flashing antics at Cheltenham Races earlier this year.

It's no secret that Gaz has fallen out of favour with many Love Island stars, after he slammed the show for being a "carbon copy" of MTV's Geordie Shore and Ex On The Beach. He also claimed the couples from Love Island are 'fake', prompting an ongoing feud between him and Olivia Buckland.

Now, he seems to have angered Katie too, after bringing up her antics at the races in his latest online column.

He wrote: "If you are from Love Island you will not be getting a response. Wait until Ascot and go and flash a t*t or something."

Of course, Gaz was referring to an incident back in March where Jess Hayes and Katie were criticised for flashing their boobs at Cheltenham Races. The girls have since received bans from all UK race courses, after the British Horseracing Authority advised they would be taking appropriate action.

Katie, at the time, shrugged off news of the ban and tweeted in response: "Who wants to go the races anyway."

Now, she has hit back at Gaz for mocking her in his column and claimed he is "resentful" of the success Love Island has had.

Speaking to Daily Star, she claimed: "He's just resentful of how successful Love Island has become. Nowadays, I only read about him when he's slagging us off."

Addressing Gaz directly, she commented that he too has been known to flash the flesh on TV. She said: "Why are you making yourself out to be an angel for? I've unfortunately seen your penis more times on TV than I have to."

"Why don't you actually support everyone in the same industry as you?" She questioned. "Never forget where you come from! I've watched you in the early days of Geordie Shore honey, don't judge."

Over to you Gaz...

Love Island episode 33: Katie Salmon arrives

It's not known whether Gaz's comment was a direct dig at Katie, or whether he had referenced her actions as a general response to his recent drama with the Love Island lot.

He and Olivia clashed over his comments on the show, with Olivia accusing Gaz of being "narrow minded." She hit back that the relationships are very much real and later claimed Gary had only hit out at the Love Island couples because his relationship with Charlotte Crosby didn't work out and he wants to "get back into the limelight."

Gaz responded by accusing Olivia of 'using his name to gain publicity.'

Olivia then hit back at Gary once again, joking that she has no idea who he is to even use his name. She exclusively told Reveal: "I don't even watch Ex On The Beach, Geordie Shore or anything that he's in so [laughing uncontrollably] I don't understand why he is saying things like that. It's a very strange thing to say."

"I don't even really know who he is. Who is he? Who is Gaz? Tell me!" She joked.

Her boyfriend Alex Bowen had his say on Gaz's criticism of Love Island and told us he thinks it is "unfair." Alex said: "For him to say something to us, just because he's been in reality TV for years, isn't fair. You can't knock people for trying to make something of their lives and for being in a happy relationship. His opinion doesn't matter to me."
