Love Island fans beg ITV to subtitle the hunk Brad.
The Geordie worker has become one of the favorites in the mansion, but mostly because of his looks.
It’s not his fault though, it’s just that some viewers struggle to get to know him.
Brad’s accent is so heavy that fans are asking ITV to add subtitles when he speaks so they can finally understand what he’s saying.
Brad on Love Island: fans demand subtitles
After last night’s episode (June 29), viewers used social media to share their frustrations.
One fan tweeted, “Brad is going to have to curb his jargon and accent. Nobody who does not come from the northeast will have any idea what he is up to. “
“Brad’s accent makes me need subtitles,” said a second viewer.
A third fan said, “Jesus Lord, what is this man saying? I need Google Translate! “
Damn how geordie Brad is 😂 Most of the UK has subtitles right now #LoveIsland

Hence, they may need to consider subtitles for Brad. 🤔 I’m from Newcastle, live in Northumberland, and even I have problems sometimes! 😆 #LoveIsland

I should really be watching this with subtitles because I’ve just spent 20 minutes thinking that Brad is introducing himself as Libra. Honestly believable. #LoveIsland

“I started seeing the UK Love island… I need subtitles, ”added an Australian fan
