Williams Berates Reality Shows

British pop star ROBBIE WILLIAMS has hit out at reality television shows for manipulating people with mental health problems. The FEEL singer enjoys watching programmes like AMERICAL IDOL and THE X FACTOR, which features wannabe singers, but feels that other reality hits are simply exploiting vulnerable people for entertainment value. Williams is particularly disturbed by British show LOVE ISLAND, which features single celebrities trying to find love on a Fijian paradise isle. Williams says: "I'll watch any old s***, but I refused to watch BIG BROTHER this year because it's like looking at mental patients. "Same with Love Island - it's human beings having nervous breakdowns in front of the whole nation. Some things should be kept at home. "If you had put me in Love Island after I'd just left TAKE THAT, then I would have been f**ked - I'd be crying all the time too."
