Behind-the-scenes secrets of the new Love Island villa…

Secret doors, a boatload of throwbacks and “as many condoms as required” – first look at the Love Island 2019 series five villa

Love Island is back for a fifth run later this year, with a string of sexy singles spending their summers looking to couple up with The One.


And all the cracking on, mugging off and most-loved moments will be taking place in the show’s infamous Love Island villa, which has had a bit of a glow up since we last saw Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham fall for each other (and subsequently break up).

This year, the villa has had a bit of a makeover.

The villa itself is in Sant Llorenc des Cardassar, a fairly remote area to the east of the island, and the producers make sure the contestants’ new home for the next eight weeks screams Love Island from the moment they set foot on the patio by the front door.
