A BLACKBURN company is helping bring vaping to ITV show Love Island after complaints about the prevalence of smoking.

After Ofcom received a number of complaints Totally Wicked, along with the British Lung Foundation, wrote to the programme's producers asking if they would consider offering vape products alongside tobacco cigarettes.

Now the Stancliffe Street shop has shipped e-cigarettes and e-liquids out for use by contestants on the reality TV show.

Fraser Cropper, managing director of Totally Wicked, said: “There is never a situation where it is better to smoke than it is to vape.

"I am therefore delighted that the producers of Love Island have made vape products available to those contestants who wish to switch from smoking to the significantly less harmful alternative of vaping.

"This decision also sends out a positive message to the millions of people who watch Love Island and who may themselves now consider switching to vaping.”
