Love Island's Danny Bibby has been criticised after he was seen performing on stage at an under-18s party.

A video shared on TikTok appears to show the reality TV star performing at Wow Under 18s in Maidstone.

Danny can be seen making the most of his new found fame, dancing on stage with a microphone in his hand, whilst children sing along to rap music in the background.

Livvie Kumar, who shared the footage on TikTok, did not approve of his performance, saying it was "inappropriate" for him to perform at what she alleged was a "10-year-old's party."

She wrote: "Right then who's booked Danny for their 10-year-old kid's birthday party because this is wildly inappropriate."

Other social media users rushed to the comments section to say they agreed it was inappropriate for Danny to play at the party.

One person said: "Whoever allowed this is heavily irresponsible and didn’t think the whole situation through."

Danny Bibby's representatives have been approached for comment about the clip.

This isn't the first time Danny has been on the receiving end of criticism either.

After leaving the villa, he took to social media to apologise for reportedly using a racial slur in an post on Instagram in 2019, that has since been deleted.

He wrote: "Hello everyone, I am finally home safe and sound and back with my friends and family and more importantly my cat Ruffin.

"Whilst I would have liked to have stayed in a little longer so people could have got to know the real Danny Bibby, I am glad to be back so I can address the matter of the post on Instagram properly.

"Whilst I was made aware of this and issued an apology whilst in the villa, the matter has always been on the front of my mind during the days in there and I would like to now add to what was said."

He went on to add that he was "truly sorry" for using the word after seeing the backlash on the post and across social media.

He added that it came from his admiration of rap music and that at the time he was not aware it would cause offence due to the way it was written.

Danny said: "After seeing all the comments and reaction to the post, I understand more that the use of the word, even in the way it was written and intended, is deeply offensive to people and I am truly sorry.

"I was always aware that written in the other way was a vile term, and I would never use it. But I was unaware that the way I used it was not.

"I have listened too the likes of 50cent, Drake and Eminem since I was a kid, and I used it like they do as a term of friends/bro/brother.

"THAT IS THE TRUTH. I now know the term is unacceptable in any context, and will NEVER use it again."
