Love Island could go ahead this summer with major change




This summer's Love Island could still go ahead if bosses make some major changes - including getting rid of the brand new cast.


Thanks to the global coronavirus pandemic, Love Island won't be able to return in its usual format because of the restrictions on travel abroad and the mixing of households.


And while ITV boss Kevin Lygo has already ruled out staging the show in a UK mansion, Love Island could still air this summer as a Gogglebox-style spin-off.

It would also mean the return of veteran Islanders, including 2019 winner Amber Gill, Megan Barton-Hanson and Olivia Attwood, who could watch classic scenes from the previous seasons at home on their TVs.


"This news is going to thrill Love Island's millions of fans. It means they will still get their fix this summer," a source told the Daily Star Sunday.

"It's going to be a lovely trip down memory lane for the contestants. They'll be watching some of their best - and worst - moments. Seeing their reactions will be priceless.


"It will also be a chance for viewers to see how the contestants have changed since their time on Love Island."


If the new plans go ahead, Islanders could film themselves inside their homes with a skeleton production crew following social distancing guidelines.


It comes after Kevin Lygo said the summer series would be scrapped after producers exhausted all other viable options.


"We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it's just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the well-being of everyone involved and that for us is the priority," he confirmed.


"In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that's now out of the question.
