Love Island star Dami Hope has defended his girlfriend Indiyah Pollack for donning a top with an image of pierced breasts on it to meet his grandmother.
The Irish microbiologist, 26, took hotel worker Indiyah, 23, to meet his family, including his grandmother, in person for the first time and shared the images to his Instagram page.
However, Indiyah's unusual choice of clothing for the meeting had her come under fire from both his followers and hers.
Dami has addressed the backlash by admitting he told her to wear the outfit as it was a joke about him losing his nipple piercing in the villa.
Taking to his Insta stories, he filmed himself riding in the back of a car and told fans: "Yo stop coming at my girl, I told my girl to wear this spectacular top.
Indiyah then waded in with: "It's in light of Dami losing his nipple ring guys."
Dami then quipped: "And my grandma loves it so we don't care."
In the snaps, Dami shared the moment his beloved gran met Indiyah: "This is my Grams. She literally changed her outfit and put perfume just to meet this girl.”
He added: "They're still hugging 30 secs after I posted this."
In other videos, the trio are in the garden and joke about having a three way kiss.
The couple had a rocky journey to romance.
Dami fell out of favour with Indiyah and viewers due to his antics during the Casa Amor stage of the ITV 2 show.
He chose to ditch Indiyah and re-couple with Bombshell Summer. He also stunned the viewers by initiating a three-way kiss with Summer and Chyna when Indiyah was away in Casa Amor.
However, he and Indiyah soon made their way back to each other and the pair made their relationship official by becoming boyfriend and girlfriend in the last stretch of the show.
They finished the series in third place.
