The identical twin brother of Love Island contestant Brett Staniland has spoken out against online trolling after receiving "relentless" comments.

Scott Staniland, who is managing his brother's social media accounts, says comments about physical appearance are particularly upsetting.

He said his brother's looks have even been compared to "really bad people" who have committed serious crimes.

Scott, from Derbyshire, has now asked a friend to help manage the accounts.

"I'm his identical twin so anything I see about appearance, or what he's like, I take it so personally.

It's relentless as well, and it's a really weird space online, this lack of consequence for saying something out in the open online when you're at home with your piece of plastic in your hand."

Brett entered the Love Island villa during Tuesday night's episode of the ITV2 dating show.

The 27-year-old is a PhD student and model from Draycott in Derbyshire.
