An intruder was removed from the “Love Island” villa after a security breach on Tuesday evening, a spokesperson for the hit British reality TV series has confirmed.
“Last night a security breach was identified and an intruder was removed from the Villa with immediate effect,” a spokesperson for “Love Island” said Wednesday.
The area of the villa has been “fully deep cleaned” as part of Covid-19 safety measures, the spokesperson added, and is now accessible to the contestants and crew.
The dating show, which sees single people shipped to a villa to find love and draws in millions of viewers, is filmed on the Spanish island of Mallorca.
The maker, ITV, added a winter series in January to capitalize on the show’s success – meaning 2020 would have been the first year in which two series of the show were aired – but last year’s summer series was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
