The Islander quit his job as an officer with the Greater Manchester Police for a place on Love Island.

Over the weekend, The Sun reported he's under investigation by the Professional Standards Branch.

A source tells the outlet, 'Mike says he left the police to take part in Love Island.'

'But it was more likely the real reason was he was facing improper conduct charges.'

'It seemed like he had serious allegations hanging over him.'

The insider continues, 'If ITV were aware of this situation, it’s astonishing that they allowed him to take part.'

'After all, they have a duty of care to all of the show’s contestants.'

Meanwhile, Greater Manchester Police refuse to confirm or deny the allegations when asked by The Sun.

'Allegations were made regarding an officer in 2019 which are currently under investigation by the Professional Standards Branch.'

'It is inappropriate to comment further whilst the investigation is ongoing.'

Mike's family respond

The Love Islander's family have taken to social media to deny the allegations on behalf of Mike.

'Mike showed nothing but dedication to GMP.'

'He joined believing the force represented honesty and integrity.'

His family say they're, 'disheartened by Greater Manchester Police's response to these allegations.'

'They had previously agreed with us that they would not comment to the press...'

'GMP have now changed their stance and are releasing a blanket statement which does not outright deny the stories...'

They go on to share an alleged racist incident that went down between Mike and his co-workers.

'Mike was subject to discrimination by officers including an incident where he was called a gorilla during a training session.'

'The officers involved in these incidents were not sacked, however relocated to different departments.'
